MR Car Design Presents Audi S3 Black Performance Edition

Audi fans out there are surely satisfied with the S3 but the guys over at MR Car Design decided to give it a try and develop a more advanced version, somewhat like an unofficial RS3. The resulting model is indeed a much more powerful car, although it is still equipped with the 2.0-liter TFSI engine offered by Audi.

To get straight to the point, the tuners used the aforementioned engine but added a sports exhaust system with optimized dynamic pressure, a big intercooler plus additional engine control software. The result is a maximum output of 337 horsepower and 450 Nm, up from the standard 265 horsepower and 350 Nm.

The exterior has been improved with 8x19" Emotion-Wheels (Strada) hyper-black alloy rims that also contribute to the overall braking performance. Dunlop Sportmaxx high performance tires 235/35 ZR19 are also included in the package.

Unfortunately, there's no word on pricing, but all these upgrades should be available for several thousands dollars.

In standard form, the S3 is powered by the 2.0-liter TFSI engine that develops 265 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 350 Nm of torque between 2,500 and 5,000 rpm. The engine releases 199 grams of CO2 every kilometer and achieves a fuel consumption rating of 19.9 mpg (11.8 L/100Km) city and 35.6 mpg (6.6 L/100Km) highway.

In terms of performance, the S3 is electronically limited to 155.3 mph (that's around 250 km/h). However, it sprints from 0 to 100 km/h pretty fast, with official figures pointing to 5.7 seconds.
