The tuning studio Manhart, whose projects are mostly based on German cars, presented a program of refinement of two Audis at once. We are talking about the latest generation of the RS 3 — both the sedan and the Sportback version in the 5-door hatchback body. By the efforts of the company’s specialists, the already not weak machines were made even more powerful. Moreover, it was possible to achieve an increase in indicators due to relatively small changes and the models still have the potential for further tuning.
Audi A3 of the latest generation is equipped with a 5-cylinder gasoline turbo engine, traditional for the model, with 2.5 liters of which factory specialists managed to remove 400 horsepower and 500 Nm).
Due to the MHtronik Powerbox engine control unit alone, the tuning studio received an increase in power and torque – the modified sedan and station wagon already have 500 forces.
There are no ready-made Manhart RS3 500 cars yet, but computer renderers can assess the scale of exterior improvements – the tuning studio has prepared new bumpers and wheel arch linings, as well as a traditional set of golden body stickers for the company. New 20-inch Concave One wheels are also provided.
In addition to increasing engine power, Manhart offers Audi RS 3 owners to reduce ground clearance due to a new suspension and install a new stainless steel exhaust system. The cost of the set of improvements has not been named, but the acceptance of orders for tuning is already open.
