In the 60th. year since its Founding, the tuning house OETTINGER will be presenting in the coming days the new aerodynamic package for the Audi A3 Sportback. The complete package is sporty yet elegant and consists of a grille insert (in two versions – brushed aluminium or matt black, EUR 395.00), a complete front apron (EUR 695.00), sill extensions (Set: EUR 425.00), a rear skirt for all tailpipe variations (EUR 375.00) and a rear spoiler. All components are manufactured in RIM and demonstrate a perfect fit and an impressive OEM finish and quality.

The Clou: The new front apron fits not only the Sportback, but also the S-Line and the new A3 (8P) 3 dr. facelift (with single frame grille) as well as the coming S3!

Under the bonnet of the Sportback beats the heart of the driving machine. The Friedrichsdorfer extract an additional 100 horsepower from he 2.0 litre turbo motor thanks to a larger OETTINGER Turbocharger, modified intake routing, pressure charging RAM-Air carbon intake, optimised motor management and a dual branch polished stainless steel exhaust system. With 300 PS (DIN) / 220 kW and a brutal torque of 430 Nm (317 lb/ft) the OETTINGER-Sportback storms the 100 km/h (62 mph) mark in substantially less than 6 secs. and only runs out of steam just before the needle reaches the end of the speedometer scale. The renowned tuner offers the complete upgrade for EUR 7.900.00, incl. fitting.
