ABT already offering tuning package for new 2013 Audi A3

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.

Check out our post on the new 2013 Audi A13 from the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

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
