ABT has wasted no time in rolling the 2013 Audi A3 into its garage, or crafting its kit, with a package well underway in less then two weeks after its Geneva Motor Show debut.
Dubbed the AS3, ABT will be fitting the model with a four-tailpipe exhaust system, upgraded breaks, and a sports suspension.
Two options for power are expected to become available, the first of which is a 2.0-liter TDI, kicking the stock version’s 168hp up to 197hp. The second is a 2.0-liter TSI petrol motor that turns the factory version’s 197hp into 247hp.
As for style mods, ABT will offer a new grille, front spoiler, roof spoiler, side skirts, and a rear apron, with 18- or 19-inch wheels options.
The computer-generated images look pretty nice so far, and the power tune is significant. Expect to see the completed project later this year
