Audi S3 Coupe by ABT

The tougher the competition between the car manufacturers is, the tougher the challenges of the tuning companies become.  And Germany is the country that has it all when it comes to automobiles and car components. Here, everyone tries to be the best. It is the only way to survive in the battle. ABT Sportsline is one of the most successful German tuning companies that can face every possible challenge. Their last project is a tuning program for the Audi S3 Coupe.

The tuning program developed by ABT for the Audi S3 Coupe implies mostly a power boost. The stock model is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine which produces 300 HP (221 kW) and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque. This didn’t seem to impressive for the ABT specialist, so they decided to do things better for the coupe. That is why they placed a proprietary engine control whose target is to increase the engine power to 370 HP (272 kW) and 339 lb-ft (460 Nm).

The Audi S3 Coupe upgraded by ABT will sprint the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.6 seconds so it's 0.5s quicker than the stock version. The maximum speed has also been increased from 155 mph (250 km/h) to 165 mph (265 km/h). Besides the power boost, which is the most significant part of the program, the coupe received new alloy wheels varying in size from 18 to 20 inches. They come together with special sports rubbers and some fender inserts that provide extra dynamics to the car. Speedy, sporty and sensual, the ABT Audi S3 will sure be appreciated by fans.
