If you’re after a performance upgrade that will make ever other “hot hatch” seem like a “mildly warm hatch,” you can’t look further than the upgraded Audi S3 being offered by German tuning house Wimmer Rennsporttechnik. Our friends over at Autoblog.nl uncovered this beast of a hatch that now develops 408hp, up from a standard 256hp. Torque figures are even more impressive, with the S3 now pumping out 540Nm as opposed to the piddly 350Nm on the standard model.
The power upgrades were done by changing parts on the engine, in the injection system, and the turbocharger. Though the standard S3 can do the 0-100km/h sprint in around 5.7 seconds, no official figures have been released for this modified version. We’d expect it to easily break the five second barrier.
