500hp ABT Tuned Audi RS3 Sportback
This demonstration model for the Audi RS3 tuning program has more to offer, like the ABT SPORT GR alloy wheels in 8.5×20 inch. The design features ten spokes which bisect towards the rim flange, the recessed hub area and the strongly concave rim base. While the fully diamond-polished surface of the matte black version creates a high level of plasticity and elegance, the glossy black finish with diamond polishing only on the flange appears more aggressive.
With 500 HP and 570 Nm, the ABT Power R power boost ensures that the fast compact car does not take root. The company prises the enormous power from the 400 HP strong production engine with the ABT Engine Control (AEC) unit.
An ABT intercooler and a special ABT exhaust system were also fitted. With this power, the compact car can reach up to 186 mph and rockets from 0 to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds. But even without the additional hardware, the five-cylinder engine in the RS 3 already has significant potential: The ABT Power boost relies exclusively on the AEC and employs 460 HP.
For the perfect finish, ABT fender inserts are additionally available. In addition to the GR on the test car, other attractive 19-inch or 20-inch alloy wheels are also available: ABT ER-C,ER-F or FR. For the interior, ABT Sportsline offers its customers numerous other interesting options. For perfect road holding, the world’s largest tuner for Audi and Volkswagen vehicles additionally offers ABT suspension springs. The complete KW height adjustable suspension kit variant 3 with specially developed setup is available as the “big solution”. Independent of this, the performance can be completed with an ABT sports stabilizer set. And for those who like a quick trip from 60 to 0, the ABT brake upgrade kit can help. All this makes the ABT RS3 Sportback the ideal vehicle for handling hairpins bends in a daring and safe drive, against the special backdrop of the Alps. The perfect soundtrack comes from the ABT muffler system, featuring two 102 mm double pipes in black chrome.
But the ABT RS3 Sportback only comes into full bloom with the complete aerodynamics kit, including the ABT front lip, the front grille add-on and the ABT rear skirt add-on with integrated exhaust channels. All parts are only available as a set in connection with a comprehensive performance package.
