ABT has introduced its upgrade kit for Audi S3 that takes the power level of the German hot hatch. The latest generation Audi S3 has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that can produce 306 hp and 400 nm of torque. ABT tuning kit takes these numbers to 365 hp and 450 nm of torque which is not as much as the five-cylinder RS3 but it gives a performance level near to the RS3.
While the ABT upgraded Audi S3 may not be as quick as the Audi RS3 but as the standard Audi S3 can hit 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds we can expect that the ABT Audi S3 can do it faster which is a very good number for a hatchback car. The top speed is also 250 km/h which is probably limited.
ABT is not only about the engine and output, the tuner also installed its new 20-inch alloy wheels finished in black. There is also no worry for fans about the soundtrack because ABT Audi S3 has a new exhaust system with four 102-mm tips.
There is no pricing detail yet and buyers must contact ABT but it can be a good deal for those Audi drivers who want to beat some other rivals like the Mercedes AMG A35 without any need for the Audi RS3.
