Abt TT Limited Wide Body

The new ABT TT Limited Wide Body received an aerodynamic kit that increases the power delivered to 310 BHP. The engine features a four-pipe exhaust system made of stainless steel with metal catalytic converters to improve the appearance of the rear and also to contribute to the fascinating sound of the vehicle. It can reach a top speed of 254 km/h and it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds. The suspension was built using the racing experience. The ABT decided to use A27 type wheels with 235/35 tires mounted on the front wheels and 275/30 tires on the rear wheels. The ride height has been lowered by 1.6-inch in comparison with the standard model. The entire team of engineers has put a lot of racing knowledge into the TT. They have used a sport suspension with stronger anti-roll bars, sports brakes, a safety bar and only a single windscreen wiper.

The new Abt TT Limited Wide Body has an aerodynamic kit which results into more downforce and a better road-holding with the TT Wide Body. The car developed 310 bhp (228 kW) and is the result of a power boost that turns the standard 225 hp (165 kW) engine into a racing machine. An Abt turbocharger with intercooler and exhaust system allow the standard power plant to breathe freely. A four-pipe exhaust system made of stainless steel with metal catalytic converters not only improves the appearance of the rear, but contributes to the fascinating sound of the Abt engine. With a top speed of approx. 254 kph and an acceleration from 0-100 kph in approx. 5.6 seconds, the statistics speak for themselves.

The new TT Wide Body shares the front spoilers and the extended fenders with the race car and in the same time the side skirts, a rear wing and a complicated diffuser gives downforce at the rear. Also several carbonfibre parts was added.

The technicians that built the limited wide body have also used racing experience while conceiving the suspension. The professional racing driver opted for Abt wheels of the type A27. ContiSportContact tyres with 235/35 size have been mounted on the front wheels, 275/30 tyres on the rear wheels.

For the road the ride height of the Abt TT is lowered by 1.6 in (40 mm) compared to the standard model. The Abt sports team put a lot of racing knowledge into the TT: a sport suspension with stronger anti-roll bars, sports brakes, a safety bar made of polished aluminium, and a single windscreen wiper .
