ABT Audi RS3 sedan with 500bhp
The normal version of the Audi RS3 sedan offers a boot capacity of 315 liters and 400bhp – both can be increased significantly: the luggage compartment by folding down the rear seats, the horsepower by paying a visit to ABT Sportsline. At the maximum “escalation stage” ABT Power R, a whopping 500bhp and 570Nm are ready to launch. With this power, the sporty notchback can reach up to 305km/h and rockets from 0 to 100km/h in 3.7 seconds.
In addition to the ABT Engine Control (AEC) unit developed in-house, ABT intercooler and a stainless-steel exhaust system specially manufactured by the Bavarian tuner are always on board with ABT Power R. As a “solo player” without the additional hardware, the AEC still offers an impressive 460bhp and 530Nm.
While the data sheet for the ABT Audi RS3 sedan is already something to behold, this applies especially to the optional aerodynamics package. It includes ABT front lip and front grill add-on. The rear of the Audi also gets a glossy black ABT rear skirt set consisting of a rear muffler cand a visually and an acoustically appealing ABT muffler system with two 102 mm double pipes in black chrome. For the perfect finish, ABT fender inserts are additionally available.
The ABT Audi RS3 sedan also makes a great impression on winding roads. For perfect road holding of the “pocket rocket”, the world’s largest tuner for Audi and Volkswagen vehicles offers ABT suspension springs. The complete KW threaded sport suspension kit variant 3 with specially developed setup is available from the ABT suspension specialists as the “big solution”.
Independent of this, ABT anti-roll bars can complete the performance. And for those who like a quick trip from 60 to 0, the ABT brake upgrade kit helps to bring the car to a stop again in no time. The equipment required for this is hidden behind the attractive ABT alloy wheels in 19 or 20 inch, which are available in the variants ABT ER-C, ER-F, FR or GR.
