The Audi S3 Coupe has received a healthy power boost from ABT's engineers which have bumped output by 70 HP (51 kW).

The hot Audi S3 is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine which in its standard guise is good enough for 300 HP (221 kW) and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque. ABT thought and proved there's room for improvement so they installed a proprietary engine control unit which has lifted power of the engine to 370 HP (272 kW) and 339 lb-ft (460 Nm).

As a result of the extra oomph, the S3 by ABT will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.6 seconds so it's 0.5s quicker than the stock S3. The top speed has also been increased from the series 155 mph (250 km/h) to 165 mph (265 km/h).

Aside from infusing more power in the S3, ABT is offering various alloy wheels in sizes ranging from 18 to 20 inches. Also available are matching sports tires as well as fender inserts which according to the tuner "underscore this car’s dynamic character."
