The AS3 packet is available for all versions of engines, but the performance tuning is only for two of them. 2.0 TDi (103kW/140hp in a stock) now has 22kW (30hp) more so the final output is 125kW (170hp) and the maximum torque is 370Nm. Its top speed is 207 km/h. The engine management is provided by BOSCH EDC16 direct injection system. 0-100 km/h acceleration takes 8.7 seconds and this diesel engine has nice fuel economy – only 5.7 l/100km. The suspension is slightly modified thanks to the shorter and tighter springs. The maximum output of 16V TFSI petrol engine is now 169kW/230hp (147kW in its stock version) and it provides great acceleration ability, you need only 6.1 seconds to reach 100km/h.
Audi AS3 Sportback tuning by ABT is ready in this gallery:
AS3’s styling package consists of modified front grill, bumper extensions, sill extensions and also original ABT Sportsline SP1 rims made in a classic 5-spoked design. AS3 can be equipped with a rear muffler and two pipes made of fine stainless-steel that provide the great rich sound. The interior is intact, you can find only the new shift knob and floor mats.
The transmission can shift between 6 gears under 0.2 seconds. The navigation system with a 6,5“ display is capable of playing CDs and MP3s. Driver’s doors can be opened at an angle of 75° for the best possible comfort. There aren’t many cars with as great silhouette as AS3 has. We would give priority to this model instead other from same class because all 4 persons can travel very comfortable. And this isn’t very usual among rival cars.
The designers in ABT did a good work. ABT has added some spice in this already hot soup. But if you can’t handle this delicacy, 2 airbags installed in the steering-wheel should help you. Audi has also prepared a lot of storage shelves for jealous girl. And if she isn’t jealous yet, she will be definitely, because AS3 is a love at first sight.
