120 years are quite a biblical age for a family-owned company. In these twelve decades, ABT has mastered it all and become the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group. The company will now celebrate its anniversary with 3 exclusive special editions, with 40 cars of each (now do the maths…) and which all put the company’s many years of motorsport experience onto the road.
The “120 Years“ edition of the ABT TTS is quite something special. The normal 310 hp (228 kW) have been “ABT POWERed” to reach 370 hp (272 kW). Torque is up from 380, now at 460 Nm, and its top speed has been raised to 265 kph. And on the outside, the TTS also shows it is special. Its Daytona-grey paintwork nicely contrast with its silver wrap and turns the coupé into a powerful sports car. Now add the red elements on the sides and around the front guard plus the “120 Years“ logo and it is all so young and fresh as only a birthday child can have it. And in a very extravagant manner, the body parts, i.e. front skirt add ons, mirror caps, the rear wing and the rear skirt set with its ABT-typical 4-pipe exhaust, all reveal their motorsport heritage. The black and red 20’’ alloy CR wheels round off the design, literally so.
The “normal” TT is available in the same version. But then again, what is “normal” with ABT? The 2.0 TFSI is upgraded by no less than 35%, from 230 hp (169 kW) to 310 hp (228 kW). It now has a torque of 440 Nm (production car: 370 Nm) and a top speed of 260 kph. It will reach 100 kph in no more than 4.9 seconds.
ABT Sportsline’s SUVs are always very sporty indeed. That also applies to the anniversary edition based on the Audi Q3. The compact premium 4WD ABT QS3 is available in Daytona- grey and silver wraps with red elements as well and a torquey 2l turbo diesel with 210 hp or 154 kW (production car: 184 hp or 135 kW) and a top speed of 224 kph, reached fast! The body is also ABT all over: the rear skirt set with its 4-pipe exhaust, rear spoiler, front skirt add ons and door strip attachments plus mirror caps make it all strikingly dynamic, even more so in conjunction with the black and red 20’’ CR sport-type wheels.
