ABT Sportsline upgrades the 2012 Vw Beetle

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 30, 2012

ABT Sportsline’s latest tuning project based on the Beetle features distinctive design elements and improved power from its 2 litre turbo engine, with an output of 240 hp (176 kW). The new Beetle is a lot better than its predecessor. Formerly, the Beetle was a mass-consumption vehicle that was powerful and reliable. It also had a unique look.

ABT has actually been tuning Beetles for several decades now. What the ABT Beetle offers is an additional power of 40 PS (29 kW) compared to the standard car. The Beetle can be driven fast and it has been given an exhaust system that includes two oval ABT rear mufflers.

An ABT Beetle makes driving very enjoyable. It received several design elements that make it appear as a dynamic sports car. The Beetle from Kempten is a car that could be driven daily and has a resemblance to movie character Herbie. Its carbon-look deco set has both retro and modern elements that play up the model’s individuality.

Its headlight covers give the appearance of aggression. The features, which include rear light covers and a license plate insert lend the rear end, make the car seem more original.

The front spoiler indicates that this sports car won’t ever be produced. The Beetle’s appearance is enhanced with a set of ABT wheels in their robust DR or CR designs, which are in line with the Beetle's silhouette and contours. ABT offers wheels with sizes of from 18'' to 20'' that also come with the corresponding sport tires.
