2012 Audi RS3 by B&B

The 2012 Audi RS3 Sportback might look the part of a ’ho-hum’ car on the outside, but rest assured, it’s got some serious horses lurking waiting to be bumped up by the right tuning house. Fortunately, German tuner B&B is up to the task, offering not one, not two, not even three, but four stages of performance upgrades for the RS3.

The first Stage upgrade takes the RS3’s 2.5-liter turbocharged, five-cylinder engine’s standard output of 340 horsepower and 332 lb/ft of torque up to 410 horsepower and 413 lb/ft of torque. Not content with that? Well, B&B has the Stage 2 upgrade for you, further bumping up the output to 425 horsepower and 428 lb/ft of torque. Then there’s the Stage 3 upgrade that boosts up the output further, hitting 450 horsepower and 442 lb/ft of torque.

You would think that those upgrades are already enough, but B&B is far from finished. For the price of €15,950 - that’s about $23,000 based on current exchange rates - the German tuner will provide a larger turbocharger and a high-performance stainless-steel exhaust system that brings the RS3’s total output to a mighty impressive 510 horsepower and 501 lb/ft of torque. With this upgrade, the RS3 can now hit north-to-60 in just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 193 mph.

Other goodies that are part of this whole set-up, include a new two-mode sport suspension, a high performance brake system, and a choice between 19" or 20" wheels. Let’s all be real though; the meat and bones of what B&B is offering centers on the performance improvements done on the Audi RS3.

Not so ’ho-hum’ now, is it?

Yeah! The simplest SUV ever that Audi could produce. However, I’m so impressed on its engine, which had a powerful output of 503 horsepower. Anyway, I am hoping that its interior is impressive as well.

It is the simplest SUV that I saw here in Audi, and it is very unlike on them. Anyway, I’m still impressed for it, for the fact that it had a nice engine specification, and it is very practical to use.

Quite like the car, but I’m not contented with its overall package, what only attract my eyes is the alloy wheel that gives elegance to the car, else other specification look normal and common to me.

The wheels look different and because of that, it didn’t fit for the car. By the way, I think the car is some kind of bloated and has a long body, but it is a good idea to offer four stages of the upgrade for the car.

Yes, this car offer will be a pretty good choice if you are looking for a wider interior. BTW, its kind of funny that Audi needs to make a newer version just to boost the figure performance of the car from its standard version.

Not bad at all. I never used to see a hatchback version of Audi and I haven’t thought that its fairly pretty. For sure the interior of the car will be wider. On the other side, I like fact that there’s an increase in the speed performance of the car.

Cool looking car. I dont really like the wheels however.
