With their upgrade program for the new Audi S3, ABT Sportline has not only outdone themselves, they’ve set the bar so high, it’s not going to be moved in a hurry. The new ABT Audi S3 Sedan comes with 400 horsepower… from a 2.0 liter four-banger!
Mind you, the standard S3 comes with 300 horsepower, so a large part of the kudos goes to Audi for making that brilliant 2.0 TFSI engine in the first place. Still, ABT has done a great job extracting another 100 horses from that tightly packed motor. The performance figures for ABT Audi S3 stand at 400 PS, 480 Nm of torque, and 0 to 100 km/h in under five seconds.
As usual, ABT has not done much to the exterior save a new set of wheels and custom grilles. ABT Audi S3 Sedan looks pretty classy rocking the tuner’s 20-inch rims in matte black. It also sounds sweet, what with the ABT stainless steel exhaust system with chrome tips in place.
You can have this package for the hatchback version as well, or better still, for the TTS. ABT already has a 370 PS package for the Audi TTS, but 400 is a rounder, more appealing number.
