The Bentley Continental Flying Spur leaked earlier today. Well, here's another Geneva premiere, the Audi RS Q3.

The RS Q3 is the first crossover from Audi to be tuned by quattro gmbh and wear the RS badges. It's expected to carry Audi's turbocharged five cylinder that currently does time in the TT RS.

It does look a lot like the concept that debuted about a year ago at the Beijing Motor Show. That car had the five cylinder turbo, 360 horsepower, and a 0-60 time of around five seconds. Expect the same from the RS Q3. There is no word on if it will be sold in the US.

UPDATE: The RS Q3 will actually have a 310 horsepower version of the I5 from the RS3. 0-60 is run in 5.5 seconds.

Wait, what?  A RS cute-ute?  *sigh*

This truly marks the death of the US-Market Uberwagen from Audi, isn't it?  Even worse?  It's an automatic.  Looks like I will not be selling my stick shift long-roof fast Audi any time soon.  You can have the autobox cute-ute.
