ABT Sportsline has raised the bar yet again with their new Audi S3 package.

With their new performance kit, the 2.0-liter turbo is boosted to 365 HP while torque was increased from 380 Nm to 460 Nm.
A new tuning program has been released by MTM for the now popular Audi RS6 Avant.

Here is the all new Audi SQ5, the first ever “S” branded model from the European automakers, and holds either a diesel or gasoline engine depending on the country you live in.

Here is a new Audi R8 project from the tuners at XXX Performance after their lime green R8 took the world by storm last year. A blue chrome wrap from CFC has this one looking much different, but still features a wide body kit along with roof scoop, rear diffuser, side additions and matte black accents.
In the style stakes, the Audi R8 is a classic supercar with a hefty price tag, but when it comes down to performance it does what it says to the tin, and drives beautifully at top speeds on the race track. If you’re looking to buy new, the coupe model starts at £91,575 with the open-top Spyder model tipping the scales at well over £100,000. Certainly worth a visit to www.carshop.co.uk for price comparisons of used car models, reviews, security and insurance advice for such a prestigious investment, in some cases a high performance supercar can cost as much as a small property. With a seven speed dual transmission clutch, the R8 has smoother handling and great traction on the road coupled with a stylish interior. A two-seater model with the finest Nappa leather interior, no expense has been spared on the upholstery and in car features like built in satellite navigation, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity.
The tuners at ABT Sportline will unveil a revised Audi R8 aftermarket kit they are calling the GTR at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Not to be confused with the Nissan GTR supercar, this Audi R8 holds a 5.2-liter V10 FSI engine producing 550 horsepower and 540 Nm of torque. Customers looking for that extra boost can have their car tuned to 620 HP and 550 Nm of torque with just a few modifications.
The tuners at JMS are at it again with a new kit for the Audi A6 Avant without the S-Line package and the sedan models. It features a new front lip with integrated diffuser that fits the stock bumper for 319 euro. To give the car a more aggressive stance, a KW V1 inox coilover suspension kit was installed to lower the front 50 mm and the rear 45 mm.
Even though the Audi R8 is a stunner off the assembly line, tuning companies like Prior Design enjoy rolling out new packages every year. Recently at the Essen Motor Show they had this Audi R8 PD GT650 styling kit on display that received a wide range of parts. It is said to fit all R8 coupe models, however they did not mention if the front assembly will work with the new face-lifted design.
Regula Tuning has prepared a fancy package for the Audi R8 Coupe or Spyder holding the V8 and V10 engines. We believe these are photo-shopped images for now, however the exterior styling is super aggressive and should be popular among enthusiasts. They are calling this the “Grandiose” and offer a wide variety of styling and performance options.
ABT Sportsline has released another set of styling and performance upgrades for the Audi A4 Avant. The VW tuning specialists boosted the 1.8-liter TFSI petrol engine to now produce 211 PS, the 2.0-liter TFSI to 270 PS, all 2.0-liter TDI diesel powerplants to 205 PS and finally the 3.0-liter TDI V6 to a hefty 300 PS. All of the Audi models saw decent gains between 40-60 PS from the aftermarket tuning.
JMS tuning professionals have sent us this teaser image of an upcoming styling kit for the popular Audi A3. It features a new front lip spoiler that will be installed on models without the S-Line package. This gives the car a much more aggressive look while customers can also have a KW coilover suspension hooked up to lower the ride height. Final customizations will consist of new OZ Racing rims measuring 19-inches and wrapped in high performance tires. All the aftermarket parts for the Audi A3 are TUV approved and available this October from JMS.
Here we have the sporty Audi S8, a version of the Audi A8 series that holds the new 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine. From the factory, this car produces 512 HP and 650 Nm of torque. Plenty for the average driver looking for a high performance luxury car, however ABT Sportsline felt it needed more. Founder Hans-Jürgen Abt quoted below.
“For us, the new AS8 is the best of both worlds, that is, the best in terms of both comfort and acceleration and agility. After all, the AS8 has to meet our premium customers’ standards when it comes to performance and luxuriousness.”
