Atelier ABT pumped the hot Audi RS3June 23, 2018
After the guys from the famous tuning studio ABT finished all the work on the modernization of the already powerful sedan Audi RS3, the latter was able to develop the maximum 493 hp. power, and for the acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h it now takes only 3.7 seconds.
We would like to note that the German tuning workshop ABT Sportsline has been engaged in the modernization of ordinary Audi cars for a long time (in addition, they are undertaking the improvement of the models of those automakers that are part of the Volkswagen Group car concern). Several times, experts from ABT Sportsline worked, as they say, “side by side” with Audi engineers.
Not long ago, it became known that the guys from the tuning studio presented their new project, which was named ABT Power R, which hides a 493-strong version of the hot Audi RS3. Tuner engineers were able to increase the power of the standard TFSI gasoline turbo engine, which at a working volume of 2.5 liters, can develop 367 horsepower, for as much as 126 horsepower. That’s exactly what ABT Sportsline is famous for – all their projects become very powerful.
According to the representatives of the tuning company, they managed to achieve this result by replacing the standard software that was installed in the electronic engine control unit, in addition, an intercooler was developed, and the “native” exhaust system was replaced by a more efficient stainless steel.
After all the upgrades with the technical part of the German “hot” sedan Audi RS3, the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h now takes 3.7 seconds, while in the serial version of the model it took 4.1 seconds. The maximum speed of the ABT Power R is 300 km/h.
However, the guys from ABT Sportsline installed a front splitter on the car, a new radiator grille, adjustable suspension, which also received exclusive settings from ABT, a new braking system and stabilizers.
