Purely dynamic is the fastest member of the A3 family. The performance data of the serial model already convinces. But when Abt Sportsline modifies the S3, it results in a premium sports car which is suited perfectly for the daily use but also shows distinctive racing genes.

After the power treatment by the famous specialist for vehicles of the Volkswagen group, the 2.0 TFSI engine in the Abt S3 achieves 310 hp (228 kW) and overpowers his colleague from Ingolstadt by 45 hp (33kW). The quick Abt is distinctively more dynamic: 420 Newton meters of torque (the series model has 350 Newton meters) are pushing the driver deeply into the seat. The Abt S3 accelerates in 5.4 seconds from zero to 100 km/h and reaches a maximum speed from 258 km/h. For the sportive ambition of the driver the 45 additional horses are an inexpensive but worthwhile purchase.



Moreover the Abt suspension being adjusted by DTM race driver Christian Abt provides a perfect handling of the compact sports car. The Abt exhaust system gives the rear of the S3 a powerful and impressive look – and is responsible for the typical sound, which you demand from an Abt sports car. The icing on the cake for the complete appearance of the power package are the Abt AR wheels in 19 inch.

The Abt S3 has the power to become top of the class – he is simply better. Anybody looking for a car providing sportiness and driving pleasure combined in a compact size is getting the maximum with the Abt S3.

You know, the thing I don't like about this car is that it looks alike so much with the smaller A3 models.
I mean that with the older A3 and S3 you could tell the diference even by looking the cars from a far distance.
Even nowdays the old S3 can still be an eye catcher.

Right now every one can modify a new A3 1.6 (no offence taken guys smile.gif ) and make it look like an S3.
So I think, why paying that much for the S3 and don't just by a smaller model that can be modified to an S3 look if the only thing u care about is the looks????

The handling and the feeling of the S3 vs the cheaper models is another story offcourse. smile.gif

Can't agree more with you. This Mkt practice may be understandable for brands like Citroen with Saxo VTS but not with a premium brand like Audi and S3!

1. as i can see all of us had a VTS at some point of our lives
2. Couldnt agree more with you regarding the new S3. But i believe that someone that has a basic knowledge on cars can immediatelly tell the diff just by looking at the brakes.
3. Has any of you seen the S3 HERON mod ? i think its something like 0-100 at 4,3 and 360 bhp if i m not wrong.
4. Regarding the handling on the new S3..........no comments........this car is too much for most conventional drivers
