With 340 HP, the Audi RS3 is no doubt a very powerful wagon. Of course, that doesn’t mean that tuning firms are going to leave the vehicle untouched; hey, station wagons need a little love too. German tuner, ABT Sportsline’s love translates into 80 extra horsepower - up to 420 HP - with a second stage bringing out 470 HP and 465 lb-ft of torque! Who says, station wagons are boring?

In order to obtain the extra 130 HP for the second stage, the tuner installed an ABT turbocharger, a modified motor management, and a two-pipe stainless steel ABT exhaust system. This allows the Audi Rs3 to deliver a 0 to 60 mph sprint of just under 4 seconds. Both the first and second stage also get their top speed limiter removed allowing for a top speed of 177 mph.

Next to the engine upgrades, the tuner is also offering a new set of ABT light alloy wheels, size 19", wrapped in high-performance tires, 255/30 R19 on the front axle and 225/35 R19 on the rear.

As usual, the only thing that I’m going to look first was the wheels, and the rest will follow. So, where on the wheels and I’ve noticed that it was good enough as it performs also in full speed. The exterior is very competent.
