ABT Sportsline upgrades Audi RS Q3 to 324kW and new wheels

With 294 kW (400 hp) of power and 480 Nm of torque pumping from a five cylinder 2.5-litre TFSI turbocharged engine, the Audi RS Q3 packs hot hatch performance in a family-friendly SUV body. It’s able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds, en route to a top speed of 250 km/h. With the optional RS dynamic package, the top speed increases to 280 km/h.

Want more? ABT Sportsline is here to help. With a specially adapted and tuned ABT Engine Control Unit, the RS Q3 now delivers a hefty 324 kW (440 hp), with torque increased to 520 Nm. The added punch lifts top speed to 285 km/h and cut the sprint time to 100km/h to 4.3 seconds.

To compliment the upgraded performance, ABT Sportsline offers four new wheel designs for the RS Q3. ABT DR, ER-C, FR and GR are available in a sturdy 20-inch size for the compact SUV. The ABT DR is also optionally available in 21-inch. ABT Sportsline chose the most dynamic FR for the photographed vehicle. The FR design is a unique interpretation of the classic five-spoke design, whose high-strength aluminium alloy enables wide spacing of the spokes, showcasing the brake callipers perfectly. The diamond-machined outlines and mystic black finish also provide an interesting colour contrast.
