Audi S3 Sedan 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 pack for the Audi S3 Sedan.

As you probably all now by now, Audi S3 Sedan is quite a fast vehicle when coming out the factory gates. Well, ABT Sportsline thought it was time to transform it into something even more powerful. So the 4-cylinder 2.0-liter TFSI engine which generally outputs 300 PS (221 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) now generates 370 PS (272 kW) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft). And as you can tell the figures are impressive. The vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds so it is 0.4s faster than the stock S3. It can also reach a maximum speed of 167 mph (265 km/h).

As if the extra power wasn’t enough, ABT Sportsline doesn’t stop here. The tuner also equipped the sedan with a set of 20-inch DR alloy wheels wrapped around in 235/30 R20 tires.  Different styles of 18 and 19 inch alloy wheels shod in 225/40 R18 and 225/35 R19 rubbers are optionally available. The vehicle also features ABS-made fender inserts and on the inside there are entrance lights, bespoke floor mats and customized air vents. In conclusion, here we are again facing another top tuning package coming from a top tuner that always does a good job with his projects.
