2015 ABT Audi RS Q3

Jump to Images

ABT ups the power on the RS Q3's 2.5 liter inline-5 to 404 hp, a nice 69 hp bump from the stock 335 hp. Torque is pegged at 391 lb-ft from the turbocharged engine. These power enhancements come by way of a separate control unit with new software.

The ride is widened thanks to ABT wheels spacers available in either 4x15 mm or 4x25 mm, and lowered with a height adjustable suspension kit that can set from 15 mm to 45 mm lower. The car rides on 21" ABT DR Wheels.

The two body part pieces offered are mirror caps, and a rear skirt made of polyurethane RIM with a serpentine ornamental grid and space for a 4 tailpipe exhaust, which are part of the ABT stainless steel exhaust system. A body decal set is also used to good effect.

(from ABT Sportsline Press Release) Engine of the “yeah!” – the 410 hp and 530 Nm ABT RS Q3

The 2.5 TFSI has been voted the “International Engine of the Year“ no fewer than six times. In the Audi RS Q3, this turbo engine yields 340 hp/ 250 kW and a maximum torque of 450 Nm. But awards are neither here nor there. For traditional reasons alone, ABT Sportsline couldn’t let it stand there and applied the ABT Power “New Generation“, the high-end performance upgrade with its own separate control unit and software. Now the RS Q3 has 410 hp/ 301 kW – up by almost 20% – and a torque of 530 Nm. “Our extensive warranty, the TÜV certificate and thorough test drives and trial runs guarantee maximum dependability,” says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt.

To make it perfect, the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group installs a height adjustable suspension kit with a flexibly lowered suspension of between 15 and 45mm. But the RS Q3 is not only lowered, it is also widened: ABT wheel spacers of 4x15 or 4x25mm make this compact SUV appear even more assertive. And, of course, the 21’’ ABT DR wheels as seen in the photo are also ideal. Incidentally, ER-C and FRs are also available, with sizes ranging from 19 to 21’’, as are various finishes for the various wheels: gun-metal, silverbullet or mystic black.

But a real athlete needs even more. ABT Sportsline therefore also provides ABT mirror caps and various deco films and red-and-black stripes for the “hips”. The real highlight, however, is the rear skirt set made of high-quality PU-RIM with its serpentine ornamental grid. Also included in the set is a stainless-steel muffler system with four 89mm tail pipes. Painted black, these do not only look good, they also sound impressive.
