Abt Sportsline has announced their tuning program of the new 2012 Audi A3. The name of the project is ABT AS3, which stands for "happiness in driving, always and everywhere" as Mr. Hans-Jürgen Abt stated.

The engine range includes two powerful power units – a 2.0 liter TFSI and a 2.0 liter TDI engine. The petrol will deliver 250PS (184 kW), instead of factory's 200PS (147 kW) and the diesel will produce around 200PS (147 kW), instead of 170PS (125 kW). These results will be achieved thanks to ECU re-maps. The additional power will make the car faster and better to drive, because of the additional torque at the low revs.

Besides the performance packages, ABT Sportsline also offers a coil-over adjustable suspension and high-performance brake system with 345 mm discs.

The exterior package includes a new front spoiler, front grille and side skirts. There are also a new rear spoiler, the rear skirt insert and the two double rear mufflers.

The tough vision is completed by a set of DR light alloy wheels , which are available in 18 and 19 inches.

Nothing is mention about the prices though.
