ABT Sportsline has revised its upgrade program tailored to the Audi S3 Sedan.
Many would say 300 PS (221 kW) is more than enough for a small sedan such as the Audi S3, but for those who desire more power, ABT has lifted output of the 2.0-liter TFSI to a massive 400 PS (294 kW) which makes it stronger than the 5-cylinder 367 PS RS3 Sportback. After applying their know-how, ABT was able to squeeze an extra 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) of torque, thus bringing the grand total to 480 Nm (354 lb-ft).
The tuner doesn't say anything about the car's performances, but rest assure it is significantly quicker than the regular S3 Sedan which needs 5.3 seconds until 62 mph (100 km/h) with the six-speed manual and 4.9 seconds when configured with the optional S tronic gearbox.
Besides packing more punch, the Audi S3 Sedan tweaked by ABT comes with a custom front grille and fender inserts while the rear end hosts a stainless steel muffler with black chrome-plated end pipes. Other goodies on the menu include 18- to 20-inch alloy wheels, floor mats, integrated entrance lights and front & rear anti-roll bar set.
