ABT squeezes 370 PS from Audi S3 Sedan

It was only last week when we talked about SR Performance tuning the Audi S3 Sedan and now ABT Sportsline has done the same thing. The upgrade package starts on the outside where the hot sedan has received fender inserts made from ABS as well as a set of large 20-inch alloy wheels shod in 235/30 R20 tires. If that’s a bit too much, the client can opt for 18-inch rims wrapped around in 225/40 R18 rubbers or 19-inch alloys with 225/35 R19 tires. For the interior cabin, ABT is offering unique floor mats, entrance lights and tweaked air vents.

The highlight of the kit can be found under the hood where the car’s TFSI 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine was tweaked to develop 370 PS and a maximum torque of 460 Nm, considerably more than the stock motor which churns 300 PS and 380 Nm.

As expected, the additional power has made the Audi S3 Sedan quicker as it now complete the 0-100 km/h run in 4.5 seconds so it’s 0.4 seconds faster than the stock car. In addition, the top speed has increased from 250 km/h to 265 km/h.

All these goodies are already available and you will have to ask ABT about pricing details.

I live and breathe cars and Audi has been in my heart for as long as I remember. And also my first "real" car
