O.CT has just launched the first pictures of their new Boehler Concept BS3, based on the Audi S3. They’re likening it to the Ur-Quattro (original 1980 Audi Quattro) which first pioneered Audi’s 4wd system and was a huge success on the 80’s Rally Scene.
Much like the historic rally cars, this modified S3 packs a lot of horsepower from extensive engine modifications, 328 to be exact, alongside 425 Nm of torque. The kit for the engine is called the O.CT ‘Stage 3 Kit’ and includes a re-mapped ECU, a new sports exhaust and an improved air flow system thanks, in part, to an additional intercooler.
It gains a set of 8-Piston brakes with 372mm dics to stop the car from its new 265km/h (165mph) top speed. It’s 0-62mph time is reported to have been reduced by up to a full second.
The widened front fenders allow for bigger wheels in the shape of two piece forged MÖZ-Wheels measuring 9 x 20 inches up front and 10 x 20 inches at the rear. Then there’s a set of Yokohama Advan Sport Tires measuring 245/30 R 20 front and 255/30 R 20rear which aim to increase the hatchbacks handling properties. The new rear bumper includes functional downforce enhancing fins and the quad tipped O.CT Sport Exhaust is made from stainless steel One of the many ways in which the company have tried to increase the sporty look of the car.
It’s another limited addition tuning kit with only 100 units being built for roughly €67,000 ($86,100 or £60,468).
Bearing a striking resemblance to the boxy, legendary Urquattro, the „Boehler concept.BS3“ has the power to match its muscular styling: 328 horsepower and 425 Newton meters are the breathtaking results of O.CT Tuning´s engine enhancements.
The 328 horsepower O.CT-Stage 3 Kit includes a specially developed Engine control unit, a deep throated Sportexhaust with an integrated Controlfolds as well as an improved Air Intake System. Furthermore, an additional Intercooler keeps temperatures in check. Not suprisingly, the „BS3“ accelerates to 100 km/h almost a full second quicker than the Stock-S3. Top Speed rises from 250 km/h to a hefty 265 km/h.
A fully adjustable O.CT Coilover Suspension helps to put all that extra power to the ground effectively, while an 8-piston braking system with 372 Millimeter discs/rotors guarantee unparalleled, fade-free stopping prowess. O.CT Carbon-Fiber Add-ons for the engine, battery and air intake provide an additional sporty touch, hinting at the engine’s extra power.
When gazing at the aerodynamic package designed by Swiss Styling Expert Color Concept Boehler, the unforgettable Audi Urquattro immediately comes to mind. The widened fenders allow the use of a significantly bigger wheel-tire combination. Two piece, forged MÖZ-Wheels measure 9 x 20 inches up front and an impressive 10 x 20 inches at the rear. They are shed with Yokohama Advan Sport Tires with 245/30 R 20 and 255/30 R 20, respectively. The aerodynamically designed rear bumper including functional downforce enhancing fins frames the giant, four tipped O.CT-Sport Exhaust made from stainless steel – what better way to top off the sporty look of the „Boehler concept BS3“.
The „Boehler concept.BS3“ will be produced in a highly limited volume of 100 vehicles with a price tag of 99.950 Sfr (roughly 67.000 Euros).
