Audi S3 by B&B

Optimizing the new Audi S3 by the German tuning company B&B leads to enormous performance, which is normally reserved for the high quality sports cars from "Zuffenhausen".

B&B offers three performance kits for the new Audi S3, from 306 bhp at the entry level, up to 362 bhp in the final tuning level. Thus equipped, the S3 can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in only 4.9 seconds and achieves a top speed of 170 mph.

This 3-stage engine power enhancement package begins with a change in electronics and a slight increase in boost pressure to produce 306 bhp and 303 lb-ft. In the following power increase levels the S3 is boosted to 325 bhp/321 lb-ft or 362 bhp/354 lb-ft. To reach this performance, the technicians change the turbocharger, install a sport exhaust system consisting of a special downpipe and high-performance racing catalyst. To keep the engine in optimal operating conditions, the B&B team also optimizes injection and intake peripheral devices. Additional there is a special air intake system installed, as well as an optimized intercooler. To keep oil temperature in optimal level, B&B offers a special Slim-Line oil cooler system.

To secure optimal driving experience sport springs were offered that lower the car by 1 inch and reduce side inclination. Also available is a height and pressure adjustable coilover suspension kit, which enables the owner to increase the circle speed.

Exclusive wheel sets in 19' and 20' versions complete the exterior of this Power-Audi.
