SchwabenFolia has been responsible for a pair of tuner projects this past week. Fresh off of its new program for the Chevrolet Camaro , the aftermarket specialist has a new one in the oven, this time for the Audi RS3 Sportback .
As is always the case with SchwabenFolia, important attention was paid on giving the car a new skin, which in this case is the rather fancy matte Gorange Metallic foil. The gold and orange combination works better on the RS3 than the original Suzuka Grey Metallic finish it had. We don’t know about the €2,350 price tag ($3,060 at the current rates) you have to pay to get that work done, but if money isn’t an object, then it’s a pretty slick way to spruce up the sports hatch. In addition to the new body color, the aftermarket company also tinted the RS3’s taillights and put some shine on the black roof, the front lip, and the Audi logo on the grille.
On the inside, SchwabenFolia also dressed up the interior with new bucket seats that carry the driver’s name and, curiously enough, the Nordschleife logo. All of this comes in at only €1,450 ($1,900).
Finally, a performance upgrade, for just €5,450 ($7,100) was also done on the RS3 featuring a RAGE 2.5 exhaust system developed by F-Town Street with dual 80 mm (3.14-inch) tailpipes. The result is an output increase to 425 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, a significant spike from the standard 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque from the car’s 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine.
