ABT upgrades the Vw Up! Or is it a downgrade?

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 24, 2012

Several photos of the package prepared by German tuning company ABT for the Volkswagen Up! were released days before the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Typically, the conversions get a DIY bolt-on look that leaves majority of the car unaffected but ABT goes the entire way as all the panels were modified.

Hans Jurgen ABT said that the new Up! will be a pleasure to drive through the town streets and even more so on the narrow roads. It’s quite reminiscent of the small Abarths that the previous generation used to drive. The Up! was tuned with a combination of modern and retro styling.

ABT said that window frames and side skirts are the “common thread” that go directly to the prominent back of the ABT up!, where a unit is formed by rear masks, an exhaust pipe tunnel and the sporty double exhaust pipe.

There’s no denying that this little car is for the “consumer market” but then it’s also highly stylish. It’s unclear if there would be a boost in power but if it is part of the plan, it’s not likely to get here anytime soon as the Up! has a brand new engine that has not been tuned even once before.
