Already at its first public appearance during the DTM-season highlight on the Norisring, the new Audi A3 Sportback caused a furore: In a parade in front of the fully occupied grand stands with more than 100.000 spectators, Audi presented its latest baby. Nearly at the same time of the first rides of the sporty five-door, Abt Sportsline had already realized the first ideas for un-derlining the inherently sporty elegance.
Athletics and driving pleasure in a new dimension - these are the targets Audi aims to achieve in the premium compact class with the new representative. This is where Abt Sportsline ties up and supplies additional dynamics for the suspension kit of the Sportback with especially developed Abt suspension springs. The springs effect a lowering of 35 to 40 millimetre and additionally grant an improved, tighter and with it a more sporty contact to the roads.
The Abt sport wheels which the successful Audi tuner offers do not only stand for a more individual optics, but also for a better contact to the asphalt. Customers have the choice between the model Z6 in the dimension 8 x 18 inch and the awarded sport wheel SP1 which sets a clear exclamation mark due to the size of 8,5 x 19 inch. In common they both have the Abt-typical high quality manufacturing and the unmistakable design of the company based in Kempten.
Of course the matching sound is required with so much optics. Abt Sportsline supplies this with a rear muffler and two pipes made of fine stainless-steel. The Abt shift knob manufactured in leather and aluminium as well as the Abt floor mat set continue the sporty line in the interior.
With springs, rear muffler and wheels Abt Sportsline only presents first ideas for the Sportback. Al-ready in preparation are body parts and power upgrades for the 1.9 and 2.0 TDI-engines.
