Upgraded model runs from 0-62 miles per hour in 3.3 seconds.

B&B Automobiltechnik has introduced its new tuning program for the Audi RS3.

The Stage 1 program costs $2,210 (€1,950) and includes an optimized ECU which enables the turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine to produce 430 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque.

The $3,345 (€2,950) Stage 2 package goes one step further as it includes an optimized air intake.  Thanks to this change, the output climbs to 450 hp and 483 lb-ft of torque.

Buyers with larger bank accounts will want to check out the Stage 3 package which costs $9,012 (€7,950).  It includes all the aforementioned modifications as well as a high-performance intercooler, a sports exhaust system, and an upgraded ECU.  This enables the hatchback to produce 485 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

Last but not least, the range-topping Stage 4 package costs $20,348 (€17,950) and includes a larger turbocharger, a racing exhaust system, and free flow metal catalysts.  The package also includes a high-pressure fuel pump, an upgraded oil cooling system, and an assortment of other upgrades.  These changes enable the engine to produce 550 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque.

The latter package allows the car to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 3.3 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 186 mph.
