Very few people drive the new RS3 and think it feels slow – it’s a 395bhp animal and looks as good as it drives. But as with all new RS models, we’ve been waiting for ABT to get their hands on it to see what they can do. And boy, have they delivered!
Say hello to the ABT RS3-R, a limited run of 200 cars that have thrown everything ABT makes at the new RS3. Visually it kicks it up a notch with a carbon front lip, carbon canards, front wing finishers, carbon rear diffuser and carbon spoiler – these all combine to make it look much more aggressive.
The handling is improved thanks to ABT lowered suspension, anti-roll bars, and HR20 forged 20-inch alloy wheels and high-performance tyres.
But of course, this RS3-R needs to go as well as it looks, so there’s the ABT Power-R kit which takes the RS3 to 500hp and 600Nm of torque, while the sound is improved thanks to the ABT sports exhaust with quad 95mm stainless steel matt black tips. 0-62mph drops to a staggering 3.3 seconds, and via the ABT App, you can increase your top speed to 186mph.
The interior gets a makeover, too, with RS3-R logos on the seats and floor mats, a new badge showing 1/200 and an ABT Start/Stop switch.
This is the ultimate RS3, and you can win one with BOTB!
