The Audi RS3 received a new program from ABT

The new RS3 from Audi received a new program from ABT Sportsline. Apparently the power released by the engine was not enough for the tuner and so, now, it has 130 hp extra and 180 Nm of torque. The new model now features a new turbocharger, a new 2-pipe exhaust system and also a re-mapped ECU.
The 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine can deliver 470 horsepower and 630 Nm of torque. Despite these figures, the ABT RS3 has the CO2 emissions like the standard car. For the ones who really think 470 is too much, well ABT released another option that allows the car to reach 420 horsepower and 309 kW.
The stronger version can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4 seconds and it's able to reach a top speed of 285 km/h.
The new model features 19-inch wheels, with 255/30 R19 tires at the front and at the back 225/35 R18 tires. The design is very similar to the original car. We will have to wait for the price.
