Audi S3 Black Performance Edition with 337HP by MR Car Design
he Black Performance Edition is MR Car Design's tuning take on the latest Audi S3 hot hatch which benefits from performance and styling mods. The German firm reworked the S3's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, pushing output to 337-horsepower and 450Nm or 332 lb-ft of torque through the use of a Stage III kit that includes among other upgrades, a reprogrammed engine control unit, a sport exhaust and cat system and a larger intercooler.
MR Car Design did not disclose performance figures but apparently the hot hatch will be faster than the standard 265HP model that hits 0-100km/h in 5.7 seconds (manual gearbox) and reaches a top speed of 250km/h.
The modded S3 rides on black 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sportmaxx high performance tires size 235/35 ZR19 while buyers can also opt for an upgraded braking system from StopTech and adjustable coilovers from KW Automotive.
The treatment is completed with a matte black vinyl wrap from Germany's Cover EFX that gives the S3 a more menacing look.
