The news follows on from MANHART‘s recently-revealed 900 HP RSQ8, which was achieved due to the SUV’s top-of-the-line V8. However, because the RSQ3 is fitted with Audi’s signature five-cylinder engine, power outputs are slightly more manageable than what can be derived from its big brother. As a result, ABT Sportsline presents its RSQ3 with 440 HP, 520 Nm of torque, and a 0-62 MPH time of 4.3 seconds.
Top speed is now set at 177 MPH and you’ll be planted to the road with the help of Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Furthermore, ABT Sportsline offers a new range of wheels that measure up to 21 inches and are lighter than the standard production offerings, making for a more balanced and agile driving experience.
Take a look at the ABT Sportsline Audi RSQ3 in the gallery above, and inquire for your own on ABT Sportsline’s website now.
Elsewhere in the automotive world, Hennessey has pushed the GMC Sierra to 700 HP.
