Abt Sportsline GmbH is a German tuning house which tunes cars mainly from the Volkswagen Group – Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, Lamborghini and Seat. This is their latest rendition of the Volkswagen Golf GTI. Let’s have a look at the Abt Sportsline Volkswagen Golf GTI VS4-R.
The Abt Sportsline Goft GTI VS4-R is a complete package comprising of both aesthetics and performance upgrades. Improvements to the aesthetics and aerodynamics include new weight optimized carbon lips and skirtings, and a new marked rear spoiler. The exhaust system is a new four tailpipe layout.
The 2.0 litre turbocharged FSI engine has also had it’s power bumped up to 270hp and 350Nm of torque. This power was gained through ECU modifications as well as a new Abt turbocharger. This new engine specs brings the 0-100 time of the Abt Volkswagen Golf GTI VS4-R to 6.4 seconds. Top speed is a respectable 244km/h. To cope with the new power, suspension enhancements have been made and the body has also been lowered by 4cm.
I miss the classic Volkswagen GTI rims because Abt has put a new set of 19 inch wheels on this baby. The wheels fitted are Abt’s own Sportsline SP1 wheels which are diamond-machined and made of aluminium. They are wrapped with Dunlop SP Sportmaxx 225/35/R19 tyres.
I seem to be posting alot about the Golf GTI. That’s because I like it. ALOT.
