How does one stand out of a crowd? Back in 2015, Audi of America had an answer…they let loose their Audi exclusive group to tailor a total of 25 S3s: 5 in Sepang Blue, 5 in Misano Red, 5 in Vegas Yellow, 5 in Viper Green, and 5 in Glut Orange. This particular car is one of the Glut Orange five.
Aside from the exterior color, each car got an interior with the Fine Nappa Leather Package including color matching stitching, Audi exclusive inlays in body color, and were built to the Prestige Package equipment level.

It has 31,344 miles and is being offered for $39,977. Is it worth it? The 2015 S3 was already offered in Sepang Blue and Misano Red while Vegas Yellow, Viper Green, and Glut Orange were outside the normal availability. The original MSRP reflected that ($57,250 vs $59,900) so once again, is it worth it? For one who wants to stand out of the normal, it may be. You can find the S3 HERE.
