2013 Audi A3 Sportback Tuned by ABT
Their latest project takes on the 2013 A3 Sportback, a five-door model riding on the latest MQB platform and using the most powerful and efficient compact engines on the market.
First, let’s see what they can do under the bonnet of the new A3. If your German hatch comes with the 1.4-liter TSI petrol engine producing 122 PS stock, they can take it all the way to 160 PS. However, most Audi fans would have opted for the 2-liter TDI, which can be boosted from 150 PS to 180 PS.
To ensure it stops as well as it goes, ABT can also supply custom brakes with 345mm rotors.
Time for the cosmetics department, where the German tuner excels, completing the A3 Sportsline’s rugged looks with custom grille, chin spoiler, sporty skirts and a set of quad exhausts. A new set of 18- or 19-inch wheels can also be specified and fitted in combination with lowering suspension that ensures the 2013 AS3 rides 35 mm closer to the ground.
