ABT Sportline tuners have developed an upgrade package for the Volkswagen Golf R32, the fastest Golf offered by the carmaker. It looks like a racing car, but it is suitable for every day use. ABT specialists have provided 19-inch BR-wheels and now, the model is capable of developing 370 horsepower up from 250 horsepower. This power boost was possible thanks to a modified motor management and the use of the AMB compressor kit combined with a water-cooled intercooler. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds, down from 6.2 seconds and to reach a top speed of more than 270 km/h. The most impressing thing about it is that the 6-cylinder engine accelerates just as smoothly as powerful in every rpm-range. The newly modified Volkswagen Golf R32 is as much fun to drive on the motorway as on winding country roads.
VWâ€˜s Golf 3,2 V6 R32 is the fastest Golf offered by the Wolfsburg carmaker â€" and "therefore the perfect basis for ABT Sportsline", says Hans-Jurgen Abt. "The R32 is already designed as a super sports car. People who buy this Golf want an extremely fast compact car." A racing car in golfâ€˜s clothing, suitable for every day use.
ABT has put such an extraordinary car on dynamic 19-inch BR-wheels: instead of serial 250hp (184kW) the ABT R32 now delivers enormous 370hp (272kW). This immense plus in power of 120hp is possible thanks to a modified motor management and the use of the ABT compressor kit combined with a water-cooled intercooler.
All components are tuned perfectly to the potent V6 by the Kempten engineers, and therefore offer permanently impressing driving values: for example, the ABT R32 sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 5.0 seconds, compared to 6.2 seconds for the serial R32. The top speed is more than 270km/h. Particularly impressing is how the tuned engine is getting it on: the six-cylinder engine accelerates just as smoothly as powerfully in every rpm-range. "The R32 is as much fun on the motor way as on winding country roads", explains Hans-Jurgen Abt. Small wonder, as the Kempten Golfer is equipped with the ABT adjustable sports suspension harmonizing perfectly with the 370 horses of the V6.
