ABT Releases 400HP Volkswagen Golf R
ABT Sportsline has made a really good thing: they have created a 400 hp Volkswagen Golf R of the seventh generation. This is actually a 100 hp addition to its standard output, which has been achieved via Power S kit. The latter is based on the "New Generation" ABT control unit that not only guarantees maximum power, but also the greatest dependability.
As a result, the 2.0 TSI engine is capable of producing 400 hp (294 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, compared to the serial 300 hp and 380 Nm. This is a substantial modification that demands attention.
In addition, ABT has added height adjustable suspension kit that makes the car sportier and brings it up to 45 mm closer to the ground. There is also a stabilizer kit for optimum handling at any given speed. Furthermore, we should also mention that the tuner equipped this Golf with attachment parts, which differentiates it from the serial version.
These include a brand new painted ABT front grille and head light covers. At the sides we see new skirts, while the new thing at the back is the tail gate add-on. The most impressive rear elements are the exhaust pipes which has a diameter of 102mm.
They are just part of the ABT muffler system. It comprises also of a pre-silencer and sport catalyst that contribute for the good uprating and sound. At last, the 400 hp are transmitted onto the road via new huge wheels and a complete set of new sports tires.
