Wasting no time after its Geneva unveiling last week, closely tied Volkswagen/Audi tuner Abt Sportsline has already released renderings of their initial AS3 tuning package for the new Audi A3.

Via simple ECU upgrade Abt will give the 2.0-liter diesel around 200 HP / 147 kW (standard: 170 HP/125 kW) while the 2.0-liter TFSI nicely gets bumped up to 250 HP/184 kW (standard: 200 HP/147 kW).

Abt Sportsline also offers suspension springs, a coil-over suspension and Abt brake kit with 345mm discs.

Of course all of this would be quite muted without improving the appearance to something more aggressive. As a result Abt will offer a front spoiler, grille and side skirts as well as a rear spoiler, rear skirt insert and quad exhaust pipes.

Lastly, the DR light alloy wheels are available in 18 and 19 inches.
