ABT Audi RS3 450 Individual is like an RS3 Sportback but with 450 hp!

Article by Christian A., on November 25, 2015

Working under the philosophy that we all have different personalities and that numbers aren’t everything, the tuning company ABT is offering Audi’s RS3 Sportback 450 with more just than its massive power of around 450hp/331kW and 550 Nm of torque.

After being given the complete treatment by ABT Individual, this compact superstar will feature a customized look. A pearlescent matt red finish is predominant on the outside look of this car, combined with an offset black rear, forming a great contrast with its black Alcantara interior look and detailed with smooth silver seams and carbon look components that accentuate its sporty style.

The door beads and trims, seat lining, center console and seat buckets are also made with silver material, all bearing the ABT logo. ABT’s history as a former blacksmith shop inspires the wheels designs.

This version uses a set of 19’’ ER-F, which are forged wheels. These wheels, when compared with cast wheels, offer a range of interesting advantages. The tight material they are made of makes them lighter and more stable. ABT power S gives the RS3 450 Individual approximately 450 hp/331kW of power.

Offering the ultimate grip are its 235/35 ZR19 tires (by Continental). Its car springs are lowered by about 30mm on the front and 25mm on the rear axle, making it much more maneuverable.

Aside from the ABT Engine Control unit, it also has other performance-enhancing parts such as a large intercooler and an optional sporty exhaust system with four black chrome-plated tail pipes of 102mm of diameter.

As if it wasn’t enough, ABT Individual (a programme that kicked off in 2015) offers a variety of unique options, so you can be sure your RS2 is like no other.

ABT RS3 450

Top athletes are not all the same, only being obsessed with scores. Each is one of a kind and has a unique personality. That’s why the ABT RS3 450 is no longer only characterised by its Olympian power of approx. 450hp/ 331kW and ca. 550 Nm. After a “visit” to ABT Individual, this compact superstar will also have a customised look.

The outside is dominated by a matt red with a pearlescent finish and an offset black rear. The interior, now in a black Alcantara, shows an exciting contrast. Silver seams and corresponding carbon look components unfold their full visual and sporty effect. The door beads and trims, seat lining, center console and seat buckets are also made of the silver material and all bear the ABT logo.

Regarding wheels, ABT’s history as a former blacksmith’s shop comes into play. The 19‘‘ ER-F is, after all, a forged wheel, which, by comparison with a cast wheel, has the advantage of a very tight material structure, which, in turn, makes for much more stable and thus lighter wheels. ABT Power S gives the RS3 450 Individual approx. 450hp/ 331kW, which gets the ultimate grip by 235/35 ZR19 tyres by Continental. Springs lower it by about 30mm on the front and 25 mm on the rear axle. In combination, this means a much better handling. Next to the specially developed ABT Engine Control unit, other performance-enhancing parts include a large intercooler and – as an option – a sport-type exhaust system with four black chrome-plated tail pipes and a diameter of 102mm.

And if some customers should still want even more, ABT Individual, a programme launched in 2015, also provides a huge number of other unique options. So the RS3 is really one of a kind.
