With the charismatic five-cylinder and standard 400 PS (294 kW) and 480 Nm, the RS Q3 perfectly represents the sporty brand DNA of Audi. As an SUV or crossover coupé, it is at the same time the antithesis of conservative body ideas and thus appears even more desirable. After all, the angular Ur-quattro with its now iconic design caused creative disruption at the beginning of the 80s. Even then offered ABT Sportsline offers exciting options for refinement and, of course, does the same with the RS Q3 for both body variants. The latest coup is the 21-inch alloy wheel Sports HRthat the models already offered DR, ER-C, FR and GR excellently complemented.
High five for the Audi RS Q3!
In total, the world's largest tuner for vehicles from the Audi and VW groups has five attractive wheel designs available for the RS Q3. The range of sizes covers 20 and 21 inches. The new addition, offered exclusively in glossy black ABT Sport HR radiates pure energy and elegant lightness.
This is ensured by ten filigree double spokes that seem to arise directly from the hub cap and extend far into the narrow horn. The generous gaps allow an insight into the complex brake technology of the RS Q3. With its optimal weight balance, the rim also contributes to driving stability. The SUV can be made even sportier with the optional ABT coilover springs move.
440 hp (324 kW) and 520 Nm torque
The sport springs allow variable lowering of 20 to 35 mm on the front and 25 to 40 mm on the rear axle. The increased handling offered by ABT Sportsline for the VW EA855 evo five-cylinder makes even more "driving fun". With the high-tech control unit specially adapted and tested for the RS Q3 ABT Engine Control (AEC) are now 440 PS (324 kW). The maximum torque of the five-cylinder gasoline engine climbs to 520 Nm. The performance improves accordingly: the new top speed is 285 km / h and the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h only takes 4,3 seconds instead of 4,5 seconds.
Chic details for the cabin are also available
Incidentally, this performance motor is particularly stylish with the one offered by ABT Sportsline Start-stop switch cap awakened. Other interior options are the ABT door entry lighting and Seat frame covers with carbon surface. With the aforementioned performance and optic refinements, the Audi RS Q3 gains even more fascination and can be perfectly adapted to your own requirements. This is what ABT Sportsline stands for, whose roots now go back 125 years.
