Audi ABT RS3

Audi ABT RS3

REVIEW

It wasn’t that long ago that a hot hatch had 200bhp and was considered rather brisk even then. The original Focus RS has just 201bhp and the new RS has 345bhp, but believe it or not the time has come when that original benchmark has been doubled. Step forward the new Audi RS3 with a scarcely believably 400hp under the bonnet. Now you’d probably think that 400hp would be enough for most people, but believe it or not there are those out there who want more… Step forward ABT Sportline – they apply their Power R upgrade to the RS3 Sportback which boosts power to an incredible 500hp. In an A3! Torque rises to 570Nm as well, so performance gets an expected boost with the incredible traction offered by the quattro system meaning it can sprint to 62mph quicker than most supercars. ABT don’t just do engine work though, and this ABT RS3 also gets their own gloss black front spoiler, grille and rear diffuser add-on, a set of 20-inch alloys, ABT’s fantastic quad exhaust system (which gives an incredible noise), a brake upgrade kit and ABT’s suspension springs and anti-roll bars. Even the interior gets a few tweaks with some ABT logos. This ABT RS3 takes the best hot hatch out there and makes it better in every way – get buying those tickets while you can!
