Safety Green Hot Hatch.
Wrapping is the way of the future for automobiles and the team at Fostla in Germany has it down to a science. Not only do they do full and partial wraps, but they’ll also tint windows and – thanks to their partners at PP-Performance – will also tune vehicles as well. This Audi RS3 DTM safety car is the latest to benefit from a new look and pumped up engine at Fostla.
The entire Audi RS 3 was given a full safety white, green, and black satin wrap that not only grabs attention but flows perfectly with the curves and powerful design cues on the baddest A3 variant. White acts as the base color while separate thick black stripes run from the grille and front air intakes to the rear. Vibrant safety green stripes curve around the front fenders and surround the center black stripe, while green highlights adorn the front air intakes, ‘quattro’ logo, and ‘RS3’ logo up front. Fostla also tinted the windows and added in the driver’s names in white lettering.
While the 2.5-liter, turbocharged-inline five-cylinder engine has more than enough power in stock form to race around a track, Fostla enlisted the help of their partner, PP-Performance, to give the engine even more muscle. The five-pot was given a new PP-Performance Stage 3 software tune, BMC racing air filter, intercooler, downpipe, and Milltek sport exhaust system.
The new upgrades and software tune to tie it all together gives the Audi RS3 a mighty 450 horsepower and 443 lb-ft. of torque. That’s good enough for a 0-62 mph sprint of less than 4.0 seconds and a top speed of approximately 190 mph.
While this Audi RS3 is a safety car, it will surely garner quite a bit of attention on the track for its looks and performance thanks to Fostla and PP-Performance. The full wrap and tinting is priced at 3,900 euros while the complete engine upgrade package is 7,900 euros.
