ROCKET SCIENCE: THE RS3 FROM ABT
The RS3 has now entered the league of the chosen ones and has been modified by our engineers to become one of the coveted R models. And the result is astounding. From the engine to the interior - this compact simply exudes class.
The standard, relatively "lightweight" RS3, delivers 400 HP (294 kW) at 500 Nm, so is guaranteed to make you feel the G’s. But it is precisely here that every additional power stage becomes noticeable. So our engineers have made it their task to extract a further 100 HP from the fireball. This has been made possible not only by our high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control, but also by the specially developed flow-optimised intercooler, which, in conjunction with the AEC, now unleashes 500 HP (368 kW) and 600 Nm from the five-cylinder engine. This is also reflected in its smooth acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds instead of 3.8 seconds. Your own 4-wheeled jet.
