It was only several months ago when the Audi S1 Sportback was unveiled and already tuners are taking a stab at modifying the pocket rocket. Case in point, ABT is proud to introduce an aftermarket package depicted here in the five-door Sportback guise. The main highlight is the work put into the already powerful 2.0 TFSI 4-cylinder engine which in the regular S1 puts out 231 PS (170 kW).
The engineers from ABT decided there’s room for improvement which is why they bumped the output to a whopping 310 PS (228 kW). Just as impressive, the torque generated by this engine has been raised by 70 Nm to 440 Nm (324 lb-ft). We don’t have performance numbers but we remind you the series S1 sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.9 seconds and tops out at 155 mph (250 km/h).
Aside from infusing receiving more power, this particular Audi S1 Sportback comes with a -30mm lowered sports suspension and sits on 18-inch alloy wheels featuring a gun metal finish and wrapped around in 225/50 R18 tires. Other enhancements worth mentioning include fender inserts, unique floor mats and built-in entrance lights.
ABT Sportsline is offering an identical upgrade program for the three-door Audi S1.
