ABT Sportsline Goes Bigger with the 450-HP Audi RS3

Cooling the hot hatch.

The team at ABT Sportsline has quite a bit of experience with the Audi RS3. Their last upgrade program pushed the hot hatch to a very respectable 430 horsepower and included all sorts of chassis and interior goodies. This time around, they’re packing a new intercooler and even more power to put a bigger smile on driver’s faces.

The first ABT Power package gave the turbocharged inline-five motor a pretty potent 430 horsepower. Now, the German tuners are offering the ABT Power S, which includes a new intercooler among other modifications. The intercooler boasts a 19-percent larger inflow surface and 34-percent larger mesh to improve cooling characteristics, allowing for a total of 450 horsepower and 406 lb-ft. of torque to be produced. A new ABT Sportsline stainless steel muffler system with dual 102-mm tailpipes makes that power even more noticeable.

Customers also have a variety of choices when it comes to choosing how all that added power is going to be transferred to the road. ABT Sportsline offers their CR, DR, ER-C, and FR wheels as well as their ER-F forged wheels in either 9.0 x 19 or 9.0 x 20 sizes with wheel spacers. As an option, new Dunlop high-performance tires can also be added for better grip along with ABT valve caps. New ABT sport springs can be fitted to complete the new, more aggressive stance on the Audi RS3.

Inside, customers have the ability to configure their Audi RS3 to their specifications using the ABT Individual program. Soft leather and alcantara can be added to almost every part of the interior while carbon-look trim pieces add some visual sportiness. Floor mats and a special ABT Start-Stop button can also be installed.

Due to the already extreme nature of the Audi RS3 and its aerodynamics, the lone exterior upgrade from ABT Sportsline are black fender inserts.
