Audi S3 modified by SR Performance

The Audi S3 has been on sale for quite some time so naturally more and more aftermarket specialists are turning their attention to the hot little sedan. One such tuner is SR Performance which decided to significantly lower the ride height courtesy of a KW coilover kit that brings an adjustable suspension strut bearing for the front axle.

Moreover, the S3 Sedan has received a set of massive 20-inch V-design ten-spoke alloy wheels developed initially for the A6 (Typ 4G) and wrapped around with Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tires measuring 225/30R20 for all four wheels. Additionally, the tuner installed 5mm spacing rings while the roof was covered in glittering black.

The most important component of this upgrade package can be found under the hood where the Audi S3 with its 2.0-liter 4-cylinder TFSI turbocharged gasoline engine received an MTM M-Cantronic performance boost along with a 200-cell HJS catalyzer and BN downpipes.

All these changes have bumped output of the four-banger from the series 300 PS and 380 Nm to an impressive 380 PS and 470 Nm. The added oomph helps the Audi S3 by SR Performance complete the 0-100 km/h run in as little as 4.6 seconds, making it 0.3 seconds quicker than the stock model.
