Already with the S3 Audi delivered an extremely powerful alternative to the A3. But with the introduction of the RS3 in 2011, the company has surpassed itself by lengths. Even in its normal state, the RS3 is equipped with enormous 400 HP (294 kW) and 480 Nm - but this can also be significantly improved: by visiting ABT Sportsline.
In the "escalation stage" ABT Power S there are proud 470 HP (346 kW) and 540 Nm. The sporty compact RS3 shoots from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and accelerates up to 285 km/h.
Aficionados are aware that the "S" always refers to an additional mechanical component, so in addition to the self-developed control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC) there is also an intercooler on board. As a lower-priced alternative, ABT Power is available with AEC only. This option provides 440 HP of power output (324 kW) and a maximum torque of 520 Nm.
