ABT_TTS_120years_001

Renown Audi and Volkswagen tuner ABT is celebrating its 120th anniversary this year with new special edition versions of the Audi TTS and Q3, as well as the Volkswagen Transporter T6. Imaginatively titled the 120 Years editions, they are limited to just 40 units each.

Starting with a Daytona Grey TTS, the German company tacked on a silver wrap around the bonnet, bootlid and the sides of the car, plus a red pinstripe along the flanks and around the singleframe grille. There’s also an ABT bodykit, door mirror covers, rear spoiler and quad exhaust system, along with black-and-red 20-inch CR alloy wheels. Inside, there’s unique 120 Years badging and carpets.

Under the bonnet, the already potent 2.0 litre turbo TFSI four-pot has been breathed on to produce an extra 85 hp and 80 Nm, bumping outputs up to 370 hp and 460 Nm. Top speed has been raised to 265 km/h.

Too much power? ABT also offers a tuned version of the standard TT 2.0 TFSI, making 310 hp (up from 230 hp) and 440 Nm (up from 370 Nm). That one goes from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 260 km/h.

Next up is the tuned Q3, which ABT calls the QS3. This one gets the same exterior and interior addenda – Daytona Grey paint with silver and red highlights, an ABT bodykit and exhaust, 120 Years badging and 20-inch CR wheels in an identical colour scheme. Engine-wise, there’s a 2.0 litre TDI turbodiesel that now makes 210 hp, instead of 184 hp on the standard car, with a top speed now reaching 224 km/h.

Finally, the Volkswagen Transporter T6 gains Iridium Grey Metallic paint, silver and red accents, a bodykit, a four-pipe exhaust, DR wheels and a retuned 2.0 TDI engine, now producing 180 hp and 420 Nm – up from the standard van’s 150 hp.
