Including 200 hp 1.4-litre TSI
Abt, the largest worldwide customiser of Volkswagen Group vehicles, introduce their sixth-generation re-working of the
Golf, one which delivers a sporting body kit worthy of matching a host
of Abt performance and further upgrades.
The new Abt Golf VI is available in a number of 'greener'
powerplants. Hans Juergen Abt, managing director of the German firm,
throws about the term 'downsizing' and is keen to point out that the
upgrade incorporates VW's 1.4 TSI unit, available in two stages of
expansion for optimum fuel efficiency and performance.
The standard 122 hp 1.4-litre is expanded to 160 hp while customers
wishing to stretch the 'little engine' out further have the option of a
200 hp version - producing almost as much power as the series 2.0 TFSI
powerplant but consuming less fuel. But if 1400cc is a little too
conservative, then Abt have it covered: the 2.0 TFSI gets upgraded from
210 hp to 240 hp, with a more frugal offering in the form of a 30
hp-hiked 2.0 TDI model with 170 hp.
But the Abt upgrades span beyond the hood. Abt will happily fit
vehicles with their Abt threaded suspension or sports springs, both of
which are recommended for optimum power handling. Abt braking and
sports braking systems provide deceleration suited to the performance
'An outstanding basis' for Abt, the sixth-gen new Golf also gets the
full treatment by designers for a sporting but 'elegant' look. The
enhanced presence is achieved via new front grill, new aprons front and
rear (the latter with integrated 4-pipe exhaust), rear spoiler and
perhaps principally the huge 18 or 19 inch alloys, available
diamond-turned or high-gloss polished.
