This seems to be like tuning day and while major car manufacturers are preparing for the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, tuners are getting their hands on hot cars, the latest example being ABT Sportsline, who decided that the Audi RS3 doesn’t have enough power.
Being definitely one of the hottest hatchbacks out here, the Audi RS3 just got a new tuning package signed by the Germans at ABT Sportsline, making it even hotter and more powerful.
According to ABT Sportsline, the RS3 has been boosted up to 414 horsepower and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque, a substantial increase of 80 horsepower compared to the series 335 BHP, from the same 2.5 liter TFSI unit.
But the German tuners go even further than that and offer a two-stage package, with the second one being even more appealing, with its 464 BHP and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque, both editions being now able to hit 285 km/h (177 mph).
Besides the two-stage power boost, ABT Sportsline is also offering new 19 inch light alloy rims, wrapped in tires sized 255/30R19 for the front and 225/35R19 at the back.
