Audi RS3 and TTS Coupe by ABT arrive at Essen Motor Show

ABT Sportsline has introduced its tuned Audi RS3 and TTS Coupe at the ongoing 2015 Essen Motor Show.

First up, the RS3 mega-hatch was revealed online just a few days ago and it’s actually an evolution of ABT’s previous kit. In this latest and strongest iteration, the 5-cylinder 2.5-liter turbo has been taken to a mighty 450 PS (331 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. The car also has a custom exhaust system with quad 102 mm tips that come with a black chrome look. It rides on a set of ER-F 19-inch forged wheels teamed up with lowering springs that bring the car closer to the road by 30 mm at the front and 25 mm at the back.

As for the TTS Coupe, ABT has worked on the four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and bumped its output to an impressive 400 PS (294 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. This one too has a custom exhaust system and a set of suspension lowering springs.

Both the RS3 and the TTS Coupe have received some subtle exterior body tweaks along with an array of interior cabin customizations done in a tasteful manner as you would expect from ABT.

These two cars are on display in Essen alongside a modified Volkswagen Passat Variant.
