Audi RS Q3 upgraded by ABT to 410 hp

ABT Sportsline has prepared an upgrade program for the facelifted Audi RS Q3.

Focus was on the high-performance crossover’s five-cylinder 2.5-liter turbo engine that has received a major 20% power boost. As a consequence, the motor now develops a rather impressive 410 hp and a maximum torque of 530 Nm. Although there’s no mentioning of performance figures, it’s safe to assume the vehicle is now faster than a stock RS Q3 that hits 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and tops out at 250 km/h (electronically limited).

There’s more to this RS Q3 than the power upgrade as ABT Sportsline also has a bunch of custom alloy wheels available in 19-, 20- and 21-inch sizes wrapped around in Continental or Dunlop tires. You can also go for a height-adjustable kit and some wheel spacers to complete the look. Those willing to spend more money can order ABT’s sports exhaust system that has four exhaust tips and produces a meaner engine soundtrack.

ABT hasn’t fiddled around with the interior that much as you will only find the floor + trunk mats and a set of door entrance LED lights. This particular showcar also has a red and black body decal set to give the Audi RS Q3 a more appealing look.
