Official: ABT Audi RS3 with 430hp

ABT Sportsline has just unveiled its range of upgrades for the 2015 Audi RS3 with a specific focus on making the potent hot hatch even faster.

Typically, the 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine of the RS3 delivers an impressive 367 hp and 455 Nm of torque. Thanks to the installation of an additional control unit and custom software, ABT has managed to boost that to 430 hp and 530 Nm. Consequently, the ABT Audi RS3 will accelerate to 100 km/h in a mere 4.1 seconds and onto an electronically limited top speed of 285 km/h rather than 250 km/h.

Beyond the engine upgrades, ABT Sportsline also offers a number of different wheels for the RS3 in 19×8.5 and 19×9 inch sizes wrapped in 235/35 R19 Continental sports tyres. Elsewhere, an ABT muffler system is available as are ABT floor mats and door entrance lights.

Impressively, ABT has confirmed that it is working on an even more powerful RS3 with the ‘ABT Power S’ package.
