ABT brings 400 PS Golf R to Worthersee


The all-wheel drive Golf R hot hatchback has received a rather flashy lime green body wrap to go with the hardware upgrades prepared by ABT. Most of the work was done underneath the hood where the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine has been massaged to deliver an additional 100 PS (73 kW), thus bringing the grand total to 400 PS (294 kW).


There's no word about the torque figure, but one of their previous Golf R project came with a 100 Nm (73 lb-ft) bump to 480 Nm (74 lb-ft).


Aside from the power boost and striking wrap, this particular VW Golf R has received the tuner's 20-inch set of ABT-FR wheels, along with headlight covers, custom front grille, redesigned side skirts and a carbon-like wrap on the mirrors. At the back resides a glossy black diffuser and quad 102mm (four inches) exhaust tips featuring a black chrome-plated finish.



Opinion on the looks here at VWROC HQ is mixed but there's no disagreement on the power!!

I love it.   Ethereal colour, graphics and trim, for wafting serenely through the landscape, allied (undoubtedly) with massive and instant low down torque, for top gear flexibility plus relaxed power delivery.
