ABT Boosts the New Audi S1 Sportback to 306hp

ABT Boosts the New Audi S1 Sportback to 306hpzoom in

The Audi S1 Sportback is a pretty impressive hatchback, with 228hp under the hood and a 0-100kmh (62mph) time of just 5.9 seconds (and it seems XCAR agrees that this may the the “dawn of the hyperhatch”). But, regardless of the production version’s performance, some people are always looking for a bit more and that’s where an aftermarket tuner like ABT Sportsline comes in.

Beginning with boosting the S1’s 2.0-liter turbocharged engine to 306hp with 324 lb-ft. of torque, the tuner’s version will easily beat the production version’s seconds-to-62mph time, but ABT isn’t saying exactly what the new time is. They’ve also fitted the car with a new suspension kit, with ABT springs to lower the car’s center of gravity by about 30mm, resulting in better handling. The car also gets some great-looking 18″ DR wheels in either a gunmetal look grey or titanium matte finish.
