ABT Audi A3

Abt A3. Comprehensive Package for the Best-Seller.

With the Audi A3, the automobile manufacturer from Ingolstadt has a real best seller in its range. For the engineers and designers at Abt Sportsline, this compact sedan is a welcome addition. The Abt team not only turn the A3 into a power pack but also give the car the unmistakable Abt look. The range of choices for tuning components is vast. For increasing engine performance alone, Abt developed eight different kits. Top of the range: 173 kW (235 hp) for the 1.8-litre Turbo engine.

"Only smiling faces" is how DTM pilot Christian Abt describes his customers´ euphoric reaction after a test drive with the most powerful Abt A3. And the reason: The tuning specialists at Abt boost the standard 110 kW (150 hp) A3 to 173 kW (235 hp), with 335 Newtonmetres of torque. The recipe for the power increase includes a larger turbo-charger and intercooler in conjunction with optimised air intake ducting and electronic engine management.

Of course, Abt Sportsline customize the entire A3 engine range. This begins with the 85 kW (115 hp) and the 92 kW (125 hp) which are realised for the 1.6-litre power unit. The Abt team also offers two options for the 1.8-litre model, with an increase to ca. 142 kW (193 hp) and ca. 158 kW (215 hp). But Abt looks also after the predecessors of today’s engine generation: The standard 1.9-litre TDI engine delivering 66 kW (90 hp) receives a power boost to 82 kW (112 hp) and from 81 kW (110 hp) to around 97 kW (132 hp). For the unit injector model, Abt Sportsline developed a power increase from 96 kW (130 hp) to 114 kW (155 hp).

To accompany the power plus, the team from Kempten also supply a sports brake system, steel-braided brake linings, and an Abt brake kit. Rounding off the package is the Abt exhaust system, exhaust pipe and stainless steel Abt muffler - enough power and style to suit every taste.

For exterior accessories, customers can choose one or all of Abt´s comprehensive products including a front grill, front spoiler edge, Abt side skirts, a custom-made rear wing, as well as dual headlamps. Also available are 14 different wheels for the A3, with various designs and dimensions. On the IAA motor show, the brand-new Z5 wheel (8 x 18’’) made its debut. All wheels share one thing in common: the dynamic Abt five-spoke design and the unmistakable Abt look, enhanced by Abt sport suspension and suspension springs. Both options lower the vehicle by around 35 to 40 millimetres. A height adjustable suspension system lowers the body by up to 50 millimetres.

Great exterior, but what about the interior? A3 owners can choose from Abt products ranging from gear lever knobs, to pedals, running boards, Abt´s aluminium fittings and complete leather upholstery. Abt floormats round off the sporting look.
