Customers will be able to order the high-performance compact sedan in one of the following body paints: Misano Red, Sepang Blue, Glut Orange, Viper Green and Vegas Yellow. Only five cars per color will be built, thus bringing the total to 25 units while pricing for the first two hues starts at $57,250 and if you want one of the other three colors you will have to pay at least $59,900. All units will be based on the Prestige Package version and ride on 19-inch alloy wheels.

Power comes from the familiar TFSI 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine delivering 292 bhp and 280 lb-ft of torque to a quattro AWD system through a six-speed dual-clutch S tronic transmission. This hardware arrangement enables the model to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in 4.7 seconds and reach an electronically-capped maximum speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
In terms of fuel economy, the Audi S3 Exclusive Edition will do 23 mpg city / 31 mpg highway / 26 mpg combined.
