ABT’s Audi RS3 Sportback Is As Quick To 100Km/h As Lamborghini’s Gallardo

The Audi RS3 Sportback is one of ABT Sportsline’s most favorite models, with the tuner constantly releasing new products for it.

Now, the super hot hatch has welcomed a new set of wheels, 8.5×20-inch in size, called ABT Sport GR. The rims have a ten-spoke design, concave base and matte black look, contributing to the stance of the car.

At this point, you may be tempted to say that you’ve already seen the ABT’s Audi RS3 Sportback before. But bear with us, because the tuner has also released some very impressive numbers about it, including the 0 to 100km/h (0-62mph) sprint in just 3.7 seconds, and a top speed of 299km/h (186mph).

Just for kicks, we’ll remind you that the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 can hit the 100km/h (62mph) mark, from a standstill in 3.7 seconds, too, before maxing out at 325km/h (202mph).

The impressive performance was achieved by fitting the Audi RS3 Sportback’s five-pot with an intercooler and exhaust system, and tuning the engine control unit (ECU). The result is a neck-snapping 500PS (493hp / 368kW) and 570Nm (420lb-ft) of torque, or 100PS (99hp / 74kW) and 90Nm (66lb-ft) of torque more than the stock car.

Before wrapping up the project, the tuner has equipped it with a KW height adjustable suspension kit and bigger brakes, alongside the muffler system with two 102mm (4in) double pipes in black chrome. Optionally, the hatchback can be fitted with other wheels, in different patterns and 19- or 20-inch in size.

    Those are very clearly gloss black. Did you mean non-metallic?

    That fender vent is the only detracting feature of this car……..make it a sedan, and it would be perfect!

    Car and driver clocked a stock RS3 from 0 – 60 at 3.5 secs and 174 mph top speed. Add .2 – .4 for the extra 2 mph to 62 and you aren’t far away from this. Sure to 100 is where that extra power will make itself known, but everyday driving, are you going to see that advantage. I think the RS3 from the factory is pretty special to begin with.
