After releasing a preview earlier this year of their upgrade program for the Audi A3, the specialists behind ABT Sportsline have eventually presented more details on the project dubbed as the AS3.
The compact class Audi A3 will be fitted with a redesigned grille, aerodynamic side skirts and a brand new front spoiler. ABT have also mounted a brand new sports exhaust system, a spoiler mounted on the tailgate and a rear diffuser insert. In addition, those who want can order a set of 18 or 19 inch wheels and new springs to lower the height ride of their newly bought vehicles.
The engines of the stock A3 can also undergo some tuning processing. For example, the 1.4-liter TFSI on the ABT AS3 is ready to be tuned to deliver 170 HP (125 kW), while the stronger 2.0-liter TFSI can have its output increased to 280 HP (206 kW). There’s also a diesel version able to be upgraded, the 2.0-liter TDI version whose output can be raised to 180 HP (132 kW) or 210 HP (154 kW).
