Audi RS3 by SchwabenFolia

When talking about Audi we can only think of German precision and stringency. What about adding another German brand next to the existing one? We get more perfection. And this is exactly what happens when SchwabenFolia chooses to work on upgrading projects on German cars- perfection becomes easier to touch.



The last project signed SchwabenFolia has been applied to the Audi RS3 Sportback. The vehicle has been all dressed up in a matte Gorange Metallic foil. This means that the two colours, gold and orange, have been combined. It is just like giving the car a golden medal in a contest. When coming out the factory gates, the Audi was wearing a Suzuka Grey Metallic paint. This has been replaced with the Gorange skin for the correct sum of 2,350 EUR. The colour doesn’t go on the side mirrors, glossy black roof, front lip, moldings, nor on the Audi rings in the grille. They have all kept their original colour. However, for 1,450 EUR the interior can be equipped with seats tattooed with the Nordschleife logo and also the driver's name.



The car takes its strength from the same original 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbocharged engine. Due to a software optimization the Audi RS3 can now produce 425 HP (313 kW) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque. Before this it had 340 HP (250 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft). The optimization and the Rage 2.5 exhaust system developed by F-Town Street with dual 80mm tailpipes cost another 5,450 EUR. Now we finally get the chance to complete the old saying "not all that glitters is gold"- it can be SchwabenFolia’ s Audi RS3 too.
