The Sweeds over at O.CT Tuning have just come up with the Boehler Concept BS3. Based on an Audi S3 quattro every aspect of this vehicle has been modified enhancing its looks, speed and handling.
Starting in the engine bay the Boehler Concept was given an O.CT Stage 3 kit. The kit consists of a reprogrammed ECU, a larger intercooler to handle the added boost; a new intake system and a sport exhaust system to expel the spent gasses. All this is good for 328 HP and one full second off the 0-60 MPH time. A stock S3 has 261 HP and goes from 0-60 MPH in 5.5 seconds. All this performance is dressed up by a host of carbon fiber add-ons for the engine, battery and air intake.
The Boehler Concept sits on a fully adjustable O.CT coil-over suspension, with KW springs, that help it negotiate curves. Stopping power is provided by 8 piston calipers clamping onto 372 mm rotors up for fade free braking.
The aero kit was designed by Swiss stylists Color Concept Boehler. The wider fenders allow for massive forged 20 inch MÖZ-Wheels, they are 9 inches wide in the front and 10 inches in the back, wrapped with Yokohama Advan Sport tires.
The rear bumper includes functional down force enhancing fins and frames the giant quad tips that exit out the back of the O.CT stainless steel sports exhaust.
The Boehler Concept BS3 will have a limited production run of only 100 vehicles costing around $87,500 USD (67,000 Euros). At the moment there is no word about any of these tuned Audi’s reaching U.S. soil. Then again, we don’t even have any standard S3s sold here.
Bearing a striking resemblance to the boxy, legendary Urquattro, the „Boehler concept.BS3“ has the power to match its muscular styling: 328 horsepower and 425 Newtonmeters are the breathtaking results of O.CT Tuning´s engine enhancements.
The 328 horsepower O.CT-Stage 3 Kit includes a specially developed Engine control unit, a deep throated Sportexhaust with an integrated Controlfolds as well as an improved Air Intake System. Furthermore, an additional Intercooler keeps temperatures in check. Not suprisingly, the „BS3“ accelerates to 100 km/h almost a full second quicker than the Stock-S3. Top Speed rises from 250 km/h to a hefty 265 km/h.
A fully adjustable O.CT Coilover Suspension helps to put all that extra power to the ground effectively, while an 8-piston braking system with 372 Millimeter discs/rotors guarantee unparalleled, fade-free stopping prowess. O.CT Carbon-Fiber Add-ons for the engine, battery and air intake provide an additional sporty touch, hinting at the engine’s extra power.
When gazing at the aerodynamic package designed by Swiss Styling Expert Color Concept Boehler, the unforgettable Audi Urquattro immediately comes to mind. The widened fenders allow the use of a significantly bigger wheel-tire combination. Two piece, forged MÖZ-Wheels measure 9 x 20 inches up front and an impressive 10 x 20 inches at the rear. They are shed with Yokohama Advan Sport Tires with 245/30 R 20 and 255/30 R 20, respectively. The aerodynamically designed rear bumper including functional downforce enhancing fins frames the giant, four tipped O.CT-Sport Exhaust made from stainless steel – what better way to top off the sporty look of the „Boehler concept BS3“.
The „Boehler concept.BS3“ will be produced in a highly limited volume of 100 vehicles with a price tag of 99.950 Sfr (roughly 67.000 Euros).
