ABT Sportsline, the largest tuner of Volkswagen and Audi cars, has announced plans to showcase their new tuning program for the Audi RS Q3 at the Geneva Motor Show next week. This ABT tuned Audi RS Q3 packs 410 HP.
The Audi RS Q3 ABT Sportsline can be ordered with an aggressive body kit that includes a new front bumper, a revised grille and a sporty rear diffuser. Also available on offer is a stainless steel four-tailpipe exhaust system, a height adjustable suspension and 21-inch alloy wheels.
Powering the car is a 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbocharged motor, which has been tuned to produce 410 HP of max power and 530 Nm of peak torque. The tuning results in a bump pf a whole 100 HP and 110 Nm of torque.All this was achieved by ABT Power New Generation using ABT engine control and a customised software.
“This complex and gentle processes uses a specially developed control unit – ABT Engine Control – and a customised software,“ says Hans-Jürgen Abt, CEO of ABT.
The performance figures haven’t been released, but the standard model hits the ton in a scant 5.5 seconds and keeps accelerating to reach its limited top speed of 250 kmph. We can easily expect a sub 5 second timing for the tuned RS Q3.
