ABT upgrades the Audi S1 to an impressive 310 hp

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 10, 2014

The Audi S1 is already a pocket rocket but after you will see what ABT did with it you are going to change your opinion. For those who don’t know, the small hot hatch is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that generates 231 hp (170 kW) and up to 370 Nm (272 lb-ft) of torque.

With these numbers, the S1 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.8 seconds, while the S1 Sportback needs 5.9 seconds. Both models have a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

Thanks to ABT, the engine was boosted to an impressive 310 hp (228 kW) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. There are no details regarding the performances of the upgraded vehicle but we expect it to be much faster than the standard model.

In addition, ABT installed a new set of springs that lower the vehicle by 30 mm in order to obtain better handling. Moreover, the vehicle received ABT fender inserts as well as a new set of 18-inch DR Gun-Metal-Look wheels or the one-piece cast Z5 in titanium matte.

The wheels are wrapped in sports tires in 225/50 R18. Inside, ABT offers new floor mats and integrated entrance light.
