ABT makes mark on upcoming VW Scirocco

ABT Scirocco Front kl

Car tuning company ABT has done its thing with the upcoming Volkswagen Scirocco and the results are all good. The Scirocco is already a handsome looking car but ABT have created a total head-turner.

The ABT front spoiler makes the face of the coupe even more distinctive. This impression is supported by the lines on its sides, where the ABT Side skirts absorb and continue the sleek design.

The indicated air inlets and edges in the doors underline the movement of the bodywork which rises at the back. The view from behind has also been modified: the ABT Rear skirt set, consisting of a rear skirt and a diagonally attached 4-pipe rear muffler, forms a sporty unit  with the ABT Rear wing and the ABT Rear panel. ABT Sportsline has two wheel options available in 18 to 20 inch and of course with fitting tyres and wheel spacers.

ABT has upgraded the springs making the Scirocco up to 30 millimetres lower. The complete upgrade kit consists of the design pack, the 4-pipe rear muffler, the springs and complete wheel sets (19 inch AR alloys, diamond-machined and black, plus tyres and wheel spacers) is available at the launch of the ABT Scirocco in January 2009.

ABT has developed power refinements for the VW engine. The 1.4 TSI now offers 200 hp (147 kW) on the road with ABT Power instead of 160 hp (118 kW), and the turbo diesel with two litre capacity 170 hp / 125 kW (standard: 140 hp / 103kW). Later on in the year the compact sports coupe will also be available with an increased-power 2.0 TSI. With it the car has 240 hp / 177 kW (standard: 200 hp / 147 kW).
