ABT Sportsline has announced a special tuning program for the hot hatch – Audi RS3.

The tuned vehicle is powered by a 2.5 liter five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 470PS (346 kW) and 630Nm, instead of 340PS (250 kW) and 450Nm. The results are thanks to a new ABT turbocharger and a modified motor management.

However, the tuning company offers slightly less powerful version – 420PS (309 kW) for a lot less money.

Furthermore, you can order the 2-pipe stainless steel ABT exhaust system, ABT light alloy wheels – 19" fitted with 255/30 R19 on the front axle, 225/35 R19 on the rear one.
