There’s a new tuning program available for the Audi RS3, which will transform the hot hatch into a completely different animal.
Available in a four-stage upgrade, the aftermarket features signed by German tuner B&B will set you back for €1,950 ($2,216) for the Stage one upgrade, which bumps the base 367 PS (362 HP) and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque to 430 PS (424 HP) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque.
For Stage 2, consumers will have to pay €2,950 ($3,353) for a power upgrade that brings the total output up to 450 PS (444 HP) and 655 Nm (483 lb-ft) of torque, while Stage 3 will set you back for €7,950 ($9,035), pushing out 485 PS (478 HP) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
A special turbocharger, racing exhaust system with metal catalysts, high-performance charge air cooling system, oil cooler, high pressure pump, optimized air induction and airflow and several other tweaks will bring the total output up to 550 PS (542 HP) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque in Stage 4. Paying €17,950 ($20,400) for the ultimate power upgrade will make your Audi RS3 sprint from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds and up to a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
