ABT has released its tuning kit for the new Mk6 Volkswagen Golf. A fully kitted car can be called the ABT Golf VI. A full range of modifications are offered covering both looks and power. You can already observe the aerodynamics kit that ABT has developed for the Mk6 from the image above, and a rear image is available after the jump, featuring slanted vertically-stacked quad tailpipes with 2 on each side. Wheels are 18 or 19 inch AR or BR design wheels with low profile tyres.
The 1.4 litre TSI single turbo engine with the 122hp output gets a rechipped to produce 160 horsepower while the more powerful 160hp 1.4 litre TSI version with the supercharger and turbocharger gets a similiar upgrade taking it from a stock 160 horses up to a near-GTI-like 200 horsepower. The 2.0 litre TFSI in the GTi gets upped from 210hp up to 240hp. For oil-burning Mk6 Golfs, the 2.0 TDI engine gets a rechip from the standard 140hp up to 170hp.
I don’t know about you, but I kinda feel it’s overdone. It’s either that or the Scirocco has completely stole this Golf’s limelight when it comes to what people would expect from a performance C-segment Volkswagen.
Look after the jump for more images of the ABT Golf Mk6.
