Abt VW Scirocco

Germans from VW have developed the Scirocco, a model that was the greatest star amongst compact sport coupes. Aftermarket specialists from ABT appreciate its dynamic look and the handling and this is why they have prepared a tuning package. The new modified model will make everyone turn their heads around and impress the curious. The indicated air inlets and edges in the doors underline the verve of the bodywork which rises at the back. The new model looks both dynamic and aggressive. The tuner offered a rear side skirt set consisting of a rear skirt and a diagonally attached 4-pipe rear muffler, which forms a sporty unit together with the ABT rear wing and the ABT rear panel. The tuners recommend either their BR or AR alloys as an ideal complement to the extravagant body kit of the shooting star. To send the output to the wheels, the engineers have provided 18- to 20-inch wheels with fitting tires and wheel spacers. The Upgrade Kit consists of the design pack, the 4-pipe rear muffler, the springs and complete wheel sets and is available at the launch of the ABT Scirocco in January 2009 for EUR5.990. In terms of engine ABT specialists also developed power refinements for the VW engine. The 1.4-liter TSI is capable of generating 200 horsepower instead of 160 horsepower, and the turbo diesel with two liter capacity 170 horsepower. Later on in the year, the compact sports coupe will also be available with an increased-power 2.0-liter TSI. The modified unit will be capable of producing 240 horsepower. The new brake pads of the ABT Braking system are capable of action in any situation, and with a diameter of 345 mm always grip powerfully. All the new elements offered fit perfectly together and thereby result in an incredible top range car.
