The ABT RS 3-R is an Audi RS3 With a Major Attitude Problem

The ABT RS 3-R is an Audi RS3 With a Major Attitude Problem

500 horsepower seem like a lot for the small sedan

The fourth generation Audi RS3 arrived in 2021 and shortly after became the fastest compact car around Nurburgring. While it offers significant updates over the model it replaces, the RS3 can still be improved. Abt Sportline’s latest RS3-R proves just that: there is room for a lot more under the hood of the tiny sedan. This tuned Audi RS3 has 500 horses under the hood and is strictly limited to 200 units.

ABT update the look of your RS7 with various individual parts for just $40,000, though.

The ABT RS7-R limited edition is offered exclusively in the U.S. market and is limited to just 125 units.

The ABT RS Q8 "Signature Edition" will cost you a buttload of money... and then some more!

Now, ABT is bringing the name back and it is now offering a new RS Q8 "Signature Edition" - based, on, of course, the Audi RS Q8. The package is offered to mark the company’s 125th anniversary and will be limited to only 96 copies.

The new Tactical Green finish makes it look like a real beast!

2022 Audi RS6-S by ABT

Not as powerful as the previous Johann Abt Signature Edition, but still a lot of power for a station wagon

In June 2021 ABT was presenting the ‘Johann Abt Signature Edition’” - a model based on the Audi RS6 Avant built to commemorate the company’s 125th anniversary. It was limited to only 64 units, and, because of its 790 horsepower under the hood, it enjoyed huge success. Actually, it was sold out in no time.

Watch The Audi RS5 And The Nissan GT-R Get Their Asses Whooped By A BMW M4 Competition!

This drag race shows that the BMW M4 Competition xDrive should never be taken for granted

Thomas and James from ‘Throttle House’ organized an all-wheel-drive drag race that had some big names racing against each other. The contenders included an Audi RS5, a BMW M4 xDrive, and a Nissan GT-R. On paper, the GT-R makes the most power, but will that translate to a clean sweep over its German counterparts?

Volkswagen Golf R MK8 by ABT - Making the Competition Irrelevant

Volkswagen Golf R MK8 by ABT - Making the Competition Irrelevant

ABT makes the Golf R way faster than the Civic Type R and on par with the AMG A45 S and Audi RS3

When Volkswagen revealed the Mk.8 Golf R, everyone was very impressed. The familiar 2.0-liter turbocharged four-banger was massaged to deliver 315 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque – a nice improvement of 27 horsepower and 30 pound-feet over the MK.7 Golf R. On top of this new Golf R brought the future with it thanks to some awesome high-end tech like that cool all-digital dashboard. In the end, the Golf became a formidable competitor for cars like the Honda Civic Type R, beating it out in almost every category except top speed, which it lost by 2 mph (167 mph vs. 169 when the Golf was equipped with the performance package.) But, what if this kind of performance isn’t enough? Wait, who am I kidding? This is TopSpeed, and it’s never enough. Well, I suppose it’s a good thing that ABT has our back, and even thought what I’m about to tell you is going to sound pretty awesome, it’s going to get better in the future too!

2021 Audi SQ7 TFSI by ABT

The tuner has equipped the SUV with new wheels and a host of other add-ons inside-out, but hasn’t made any performance upgrades

ABT is back with another Audi build, this time for the SQ7. The automaker recently ditched the diesel engine from this vehicle and dropped an even more powerful V-8 gasoline mill under the hood. In the standard form, the SUV comes with 500+ horses, which is already on the higher end. So, ABT decided to give this bit a skip for this build and went ahead with making changes to the interior and the exterior. The aesthetic changes are significant and make the already-hot SQ7 even hotter.

Here’s a powerful version of a performance-oriented crossover SUV by ABT

Spanish automaker Seat revealed its performance-oriented brand Cupra a couple of years back. The cars look good, come with a load of niceties, and of course, are strong performers. But, no amount of power or mods are ever enough and that is essentially what’s keeping the aftermarket companies running.

ABT Sportsline, the company which is known to work on Audi cars, and by extension, Volkswagen products, is here with its own version of the Cupra Formentor – a subcompact crossover SUV. The ABT Formentor comes with new wheels, a power boost, and a new exhaust system that makes it a different beast.
