When the new Audi TT Roadster removes its top, it will get breezy! After all, even in the four-cylinder 2.0 TFSI, 230 hp (169 kW) make for high wind speeds indeed. Now, ABT Sportsline upgrades the car – as with the coupé – to a mighty 310 hp (228 kW), no less than the production-type TTS, which, incidentally, ABT Sportsline beats by 440 to 370 Nm. “And to make you even more certain of its quality, I issue a comprehensive guarantee to go with this ABT Power New Generation uprating. This guarantee is now valid in many European countries,” says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt.
With its successful set-up, the TT also shows that the most fun is found when taking bends. ABT suspension springs and stabilisers make for much balance and agility. ABT wheel spacers of 24 or 30mm also make it very assertive. And the various ABT alloy wheels all come into their own here, e.g. the new FR in mighty 20’’. The CR, DR and ER-C and the very exclusive ER-F (forged) are also available, some in 18 and 19’’, too, and in various colours.
And for the third generation of the TT, the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group provides a body kit that makes this sports car look good from any angle, too. ABT Sportsline makes its edgy face appear even more dynamic with a front skirt add on featuring a spoiler lip.
Specially designed mirror caps with the ABT logo complete the front. Whoever sees the ABT TT in their rear-view mirror, will soon see its newly designed rear. Through the fixed rear wing and the skirt insert with an offset centre, the car is definitely made more racy, an impression also underscored by the ABT exhaust system with black-chrome-plated tailpipes and lasered ABT logos. Drivers and passengers can thus enjoy a real open-air concert whenever the pedal hits the metal.
According to Hollywood, the ancient Greeks didn’t need more than 300 Spartan foot soldiers to keep a mighty army at bay. If you want to come to fame at the Austrian Wörthersee event at Reifnitz from 13 – 16 May, you need a few more troops. And fast cavalry only, please.
ABT Sportsline has therefore equipped the Golf R, presented at its joint booth with H&R, with 400 hp / 294 kW (production car: 300 hp / 221 kW).
The visual effects could indeed be Hollywood-made. The globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group has given the aggressive Golf a bilious green car wrap, which has even left its mark on the 20’’ ABT-FR wheels and makes this compact rocket appear as if it came from a different planet. The high-quality ABT front grille, matching head light covers and side skirts and the tailgate add-on really come into their own here. Particularly impressive are the four mighty black-chrome-plated tailpipes of a diameter of 102mm.
And this brash Golf is not alone: ABT Sportsline has also brought the new Audi TT to the Wörthersee tuning event. The sports car is in really good shape and has been upgraded from 230 hp / 169 kW to a full 310 hp / 228 kW, with a maximum torque of 440 Nm (production car: 370 Nm). ABT springs and sway bars see to it that drivers do not have to worry about balance or agility. The dramatic body kit consists of a front skirt add-on, mirror caps, a rear spoiler and rear skirt set plus ABT muffler system.
