Tene quod bene, they understood that in Ingolstadt. The new generation of the Audi RS 3 not only retains its 400 hp output, but also its distinctive 2.5 five-cylinder engine. That is a small miracle in these times. Our Yves was therefore very impressed after the first meeting at the end of December.
But for some it is never enough. ABT Sportsline, which specializes in products from the Volkswagen Group, has therefore prepared an engine upgrade for the brand-new Audi RS 3. Some changes in the engine management increase the power from 400 hp to 460 hp, and the torque from 500 Nm to 540 Nm. There you are, shining with your 421 hp Mercedes-AMG A 45 S.
According to ABT, the sprint to 100 km/h takes only 3.6 seconds after the upgrade, while on friendly request – and for a fee of course – you can have the top speed increased to 300 km/h. Visually, ABT has no changes except for entry lighting for this Audi RS 3, although the Germans say that there are still a few things in the pipeline.
