I think, as a car manufacturer or tuner, you’re as good as your compact projects are. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the work and effort put in for cool and luxurious limos and comfy rides, but to get a compact machine up to spec so that it can handle itself against all competition, no matter the brand. So, tell me, how many compacts can you think of that are worth the attention? I thought so!
Of course, whatever the pick – and it is slim pickings – you can’t leave out Audi, and their S3 model. But it ain’t good enough for ABT Sportsline; the tuner has released a performance package for the Audi S3. This compact is special; it features a pimped out 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged unit from developing 365hp (370PS) and peak torque of 460Nm.
The numbers add up to improved performance. This Audi gets from 0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds, and since the speed limiter has been removed it will reach a top speed of 265km/h (164mph). Available accessories and parts include fender inserts and alloy wheels of your choice. I’m just wondering how this Audi handles itself around the bends.
