Compact class with world-class tuning: ABT makes Audi RS 3 even sportier
The revised Audi RS 3 Sportback and the new RS 3 limousine have only recently been available. RS models traditionally represent the highest level of performance and equipment. Even so, ABT Sportsline, the market leader for tuning Audi and VW group vehicles, still sees room for improvement and presents the ABT RS 3 at German Essen Motor Show. Those who no longer want to wait for more power and better brakes can find special accessories from the market leader now.
With a performance of 400 HP (294 kW), the Audi RS 3 already shows very clearly what distinguishes it from a normal compact car. Already now, a first performance upgrade is available: ABT Power with 460 HP (339 kW). And thanks to the specially developed and adapted engine control unit, it comes without additional wear and fuel consumption. With ABT Suspension Springs and ABT Anti-Roll Bars, the RS 3 perfectly brings the power of the 5-cylinder in-line engine with 2.5 liters onto the road. In addition, a height adjustable suspension is already in development.
The ABT Brake Upgrade Kit, which hides behind the 19 and 20 inch rims in ABT DR, ER-C, ER-F or FR design, always stops the RS 3 precisely. For the interior, the Bavaria-based company offers different finishing upgrades in carbon and integrated entrance lights with the ABT branding, a gearshift lever badge, and the start/stop button. The rear of the Audi also gets a glossy black rear skirt set consisting of rear muffler channel and ABT Rear Muffler with two 102 mm double pipes in matte black.
And for those who want even more, ABT presents the ABT RS 3 as a complete package at the Essen Motor Show. It is currently being tuned by the motor sports professionals and will be equipped with the even more powerful performance level ABT Power R. In regards to the design, ABT Sportsline does not miss the opportunity to complement the ABT RS 3 with a number of additional aerodynamic elements and interior finishing upgrades to make it stand out. The ABT RS 3 comes with a front skirt add on, a front grille add on with RS 3 logo, the rear skirt set, and different ABT RS 3 finishing upgrades for the interior.
With an improved suspension, a brake upgrade kit and new rims, the ABT RS 3 package for Sportback and limousine refines the sporty and luxurious character of the RS 3 even more and makes the Audi model complete. This is the closest a compact car can get to motor sports.
