Five-cylinder turbo and all-wheel drive: These keywords alone are enough to remind Audi fans of the golden age of the Sport Quattro. This concept, originally for rally sport, permeates many of the brand’s sports models, right up to the present day. The results are a unique character and incredible performance. The best example is the Audi RS Q3, whose standard specification boasts animpressive 400 hp (294 kW) and 480 Nm.
However, our engineers have boosted the hp of the engine towards Group B level. Thanks to the specially adapted and tested high-tech ABT Engine Control unit (AEC)*, the RS Q3 now delivers a hefty 440 hp (324 kW). The maximum torque of the 5-cylinder petrol engine increases to 520 Nm. Driving performance increases accordingly: The maximum speed is now 285 km/h and it sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds.
The ABT Sportsline start-stop switch capawakens this high-performance beast in true style.
