In the automotive world, some colors are more distinct than others. British Racing Green, for example, is synonymous with racing cars from Great Britan. Rosso Corsa, on the other hand, is more than known as color synonymous with racing cars from Italy. In contrast, some color finishes are easily attributed as the go-to colors for some car manufacturers. For example, Estoril Blue is well-known as a BMW color. For Chevrolet, Hugger Orange. For Aston Martin, Silver Birch. For Guards red can easily be attributed to Porsche. The list goes on.

However, there’s one color finish that is unmistakably attributed to one specific German carmaker. That color, while it may not stand out as the ones mentioned above, is one of the greatest understated color choices for a car: Nardo Gray by Audi.

Certainly, Nogaro Blue also pops to mind as an Audi color, but Nardo Gray has seen more prominence in recent years. Thus, we’ve been seeing it on everything from high-performance machines like the Audi RS6 or the Audi R8, but also, on some not-so-performance-oriented models from other carmakers within the same group, like the Škoda Fabia or the Volkswagen Golf GTI. Sure, owners chose it for the likes of the Ferrari 488 GTB or the Lamborghini Aventador as well. However, one thing remains the same no matter what car adorns this color; they all look phenomenal dressed in it.

This time, Nardo Gray is the color of choice for a rather gorgeous looking Audi RS3. Coming from Switzerland, this spiced up small sedan boasts both aggressive looks and a hefty punch. The Audi RS is powered by a 2.5 Liter straight-five engine, delivering 395 horsepower and 54 lb-ft (480Nm) of torque. Equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch S Tronic transmission system and the Quattro all-wheel-drive system. As a result, the Audi RS3 can sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.1 seconds and reach an electronically limited top speed of 155mph (250km/h). Oh, we forgot to mention how good does that straight-five engine sounds.

Overall, the Audi RS3 is one amazing package of sick looks, amazing performance, and great overall drivability. However, while some may argue differently, the OEM wheel setups on it are kinda tame and not up to par with the aggressive design cues of the vehicle itself. In turn, the owner of this Nardo Gray Audi RS3 turned to us for a set of aftermarket wheels that will flow nicely with the aggressive lines of his car.

The choice was made for a set of Forgestar CF10 wheels.  Lightweight, ten-spoke design, intricate spoke cuts, and a contemporary overall look, these wheels are a perfect addition to a high-performance small sedan like the RS3. For this build and to adhere to the particular requirements set forth by the Audi Quattro all-wheel-drive system, the wheels are machined in sizes of 19×9 in the front and 19×9 in the rear. Furthermore, they come with a Satin Black finish, flowing well with the Nardo Gray exterior, but also, accentuating the large red brake calipers of this small beast as well.
