Piracy knows no bounds. Whether it’s Sunglasses, Clothing or in this case Wheels, it seems that the marketplace is constantly flooded with counterfeit goods sold to unknowing (or willing in some cases) consumers for what is perceived to be a ‘good deal’. Aside from cutting into the profits companies use to develop new products, these goods are oftentimes poorly built and can cause damage to a company’s reputation or in the worst case scenario- physical harm to the end user. BBS is taking a stand against these fake wheels and their distributors, and has already put a stop to one internationally active ring of counterfeiters.

HPERFORMANCE Audi TT 10 600x300 photo

Like will to like! True to this motto, the located in the very north of Baden-Wuerttemberg Hperformance manufacture has chosen two Audi TT RS cars in a bit for ennobling. Individuality according to customer’s wish with hand crafted rough materials, as stainless steel, aluminum and carbon, is even the ultimate imperative for the tuning forgery in Osterburken city.

Both vehicles – by pure chance, the one is a glossy white one and the other one comes in mat black – are equipped by a company own exhaust system type „sound at will“ and sound, nevertheless, in spite of identical modifications absolutely differently. This fact proves that the promised „sound of will“ is absolutely achievable – hardly to be ignored while the photo shooting. The two Audi TT RS „make their voice heard“ by an exhaust system made by HPerformance beginning at the turbocharger – with a 80-mm pipe beginning from the turbocharger on the one side, and on the other with two 76-mm pipes beginning from the turbocharger.

When you read 730 hp/537 kW, you may first think of an Italian super-sports-car or a big truck but not of a roadworthy family or business estate.

Crossover alternatives to compact rockets like a Golf R or Audi S3 had been a rarity until in 2013 the racy Audi RS Q3 with its 310 hp/228 kW was rolled out. The ABT Sportsline engineers then saw even more potential in this chic car and wanted to put it on an equal footing with real sports cars. Extensive tests on their own dynamometer and public roads followed and showed that the 2.5l five-cylinder engine would easily bear a permanent 32 % uprating, provided the engineers were careful. Now, the ABT RS Q3 has 410 hp or 301 kW; the maximum torque is 530 Nm, up from a serial 420 Nm. In Geneva, ABT will present the power-SUV in an “innocent” white shade with an impressive decor which will then make this colour lose its innocence right away.
