Audi’s 2012 RS3 gets a substantial power boost from German tuner B&B, with three different stage options.
The first of the three is the 2.5-liter turbo five-cylinder, which starts with 335-hp at 332 lb-ft of torque. B&B kicks that up to 404hp at 560 lb-ft of torque. Stage two comes with 419-hp at 426 lb-ft, and can go up to 444-hp at 442 lb-ft.
If that isn’t enough, a faster version that hits 503-hp at 501 lb-ft of torque is available, powered by a bigger turbo and a high-performance exhaust system. This version goes from 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and tops out at 193 mph.
The RS3’s suspension gets two versions as well, coming in both Sport and Comfort modes, and gets dropped by 22mm. Added stopping power comes from a high-performance brake system, and the car rides on a selection of 19- or 20-inch wheels.
