Volkswagen Beetle by ABT

The 2012 Volkswagen Beetle received a tuning program from ABT Sportsline. The kit includes a lot of visual updated elements. Under the hood, the model hides a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that received a 40 PS power upgrade, enabling the car to produce 240 horsepower. The new bespoke exhaust system and the re-programmed ECU are probably responsible for the extra power. To go deeper, the kit includes headlight and rear light covers, a set of decals with a carbon fiber look, a front spoiler and it also has a special insert situated around the license plate. The model runs now on 18- or 20-inch light alloy wheels. The tuner also upgraded the brakes to handle the extra power. They feature black painted calipers and the suspension springs. The price for the program is still unknown.
