2009 Vw Golf VI by ABT

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 25, 2010

The Kempten-based company ABT, the famous Volkswagen customizer, has developed a visual package particularly intended for the Golf VI. The ABT Golf VI combines driving pleasure with eco-friendliness.

Moreover, the vehicle features the 1.4 TSI, available in two states of expansion: the standard 122 hp (90 kW) become 160 hp (118 kW), and the more potent 200 hp (147 kW). Consequently, the small direct injection powerplant generates almost equal power to the 2.0 TSI, but utilizes less fuel.

For the power-hungry enthusiast, however, the Allgau company has also available a power package for the 2.0 FSI which originally generated 210 hp (154 kW) will now become 240 hp (176 kW).

For the economically-minded driver, however, the wise alternative is the 2.0 TDI which has received a potent 170 hp (125 kW) from a standard of 140 hp (103 kW).

With the potency comes the matching ABT spring or the sporty ABT threaded suspension. High-performance stopping power is provided with ABT braking systems and ABT sports braking systems. It is not only performance that matters to ABT but also appearance.

That's why ABT developed a bodykit for the Golf VI that not only provides the popular model with dynamism but also stylish look with front grill and front apron that creates a contemporary appearance, as well as side bars that give the vehicle a road hugging stance.

Included also are rear spoiler and apron attachment with an integrated 4-pipe exhaust. The total appearance is completed by 18 or 19-inch AR and BR wheels clothed in sporty rubber. With the ABT package, the Golf VI is consequently and deservingly propelled to center stage. Price of the kit: €6.490.

VW Golf VI by ABT Sportsline

That's what a winner looks like: since 1974 the VW Golf has dominated not just its vehicle class, but since then it has been Germany's favourite car almost every year – a success story, which ABT has also co-written. This is because for just over 35 years the Allgauers have looked after the "Golfs", from the very first one to the current new, sixth version of the long-time favourite. And as usual, ABT has once again had great success with it: with the tailor-made body-kit the designers from Kempten underline the fine character of the number one and give it an extra dose of sportiness. The front grill and spoiler, side skirts, rear spoiler and rear skirt make the ABT Golf VI seem dynamic and give it class. The components also suit the angled 4-pipe rear muffler and the AR and BR alloys perfectly. Anyone wanting the complete ABT look can also save money with the exclusive and complete exterior Package. This package also contains, in addition to the ABT AR or BR alloys, the ABT springs. For the new Golf the car tuner also offers a finely tuned ABT coil-over suspension system, the ABT braking system and the ABT sports braking system. These components guarantee you driving enjoyment and safety.

It is, of course, not just the "exterior values" that impress with the ABT Golf VI: the performance improvements offer sportiness, while at the same time are also completely modern. The magic word here is downsizing and it is extremely effective especially with the 1.4 TSI. The most powerful version of the unit offers an impressive 210 HP (154 kW) instead of 160 HP (118 kW). That corresponds to the power of the 2.0 TSI, which has a larger engine, and it provides similar sporty performance at considerably lower consumption and thereby lower emissions. The engine is also durable, reliable and suitable for everyday use, as these "internal values" are written into the specifications of every ABT engine. Even the "smaller" 1.4 TSI, which provides an impressive 160 HP (118 kW) on the road instead of 122 HP (90 kW), combines driving enjoyment with durability, as does the successful 2.0 TSI. With ABT the sporty two-litre car provides 240 HP/176 kW instead of 210 HP/154 kW. An economical alternative especially for regular drivers is the 2.0 TDI, which impresses at ABT with robust torque and 170 diesel horsepower (125 kW). The 30 extra-HP make themselves felt in the handling which is considerably more agile. The new ABT Golf VI is an all-round impressive vehicle, the best symbiosis of individuality, sporty aspirations and modern technology.
