ABT Sportsline are Back with 430HP Audi RS3
ABT Sportsline team is back from the summer vacation and this time it presents more potent Audi RS3. There are not a lot of external modifications in this project, but we find that the addition around 60 hp sufficient enough.
The stock 2.5 TFSI engine of the Audi RS3 produces 367 hp (270 kW). After the addition of ABT Power "New Generation" and its extra control unit with its software, the sports model can now boast up to 430 hp (316 kW). If you wonder about the maximum torque, it has been raised from 455 Nm (336 lb-ft) to 530 Newton meters (391 lb-ft).
This addition of 75 hp results in faster acceleration time. The tuned RS3 sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds on the way to a new electronically limited top speed of 285 km/h.
More horses require more impressive sound, too. Both "stages" of the sound are generated by the 4-pipe exhaust system made of stainless steel and with black chrome-plated tailpipes measuring 102 mm.
Wheels & Tires
There is a choice of alloy wheels like the ER-C or light forged ER-F. For the Audi RS3, both versions are available in 19'-inch size in three different colors: "Gun-Metal", "Silverbullet" or "Black Magic". They come with 235/35 R19 tires.
A very fancy feature is the LEDs with the ABT logo as well as the floor mats featuring silver ABT embroidery and curved lines. Both come as an optional specification.
