Tuners create powerful Audi RS3 Safety Car

Snapshot: 0-100 kmph sprint takes less than four seconds

Although it’s based on an older five-door Audi RS3 Sportback, that doesn’t make it less impressive as this so-called unofficial “safety car” packs a lot more punch hiding in a new exterior wearing a highly detailed tri-color wrap applied by Fostla. They are asking a cool €3,900 and for this money they will also provide partial wrapping of the wheels, tinted windows, tinted headlights and fog lights and other similar tweaks which have made this RS3 stand out from the crowd of hot hatchbacks.

While Fostla took great care of the car’s exterior appearance, PP-Performance was responsible with the power upgrades which is why they focused their attention towards the iconic 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbocharged engine lurking underneath the hood. They applied a stage 3 kit which aside from the usual chip tuning it also includes a racing filter from BMC along with a Wagner charge air cooler. Moreover, the car has also received a custom downpipe and a sports exhaust system provided by Milltek which should make the engine’s soundtrack generate a more aggressive tone, especially during hard accelerations.

After all these changes were implemented on the Audi RS3 Sportback, the car now generates an outstanding 450 bhp and a peak torque of 600 Nm. The power bump has taken the car into supercar territory as far as the performances are concerned since the 0-100 kmph sprint is achieved in less than four seconds while the top speed stands at approximately 310 kmph.

It should be mentioned that the tuner from Northern Germany is asking €7,900 for the power upgrades which turn the RS3 into one of the most powerful and fastest compact hatchbacks out there, even though this is an older model, not the latest and greatest RS3 Sportback which is believed to receive a sedan version in the near future.
