From the racetrack to the road: With hardly a single vehicle, the ABT Sportsline motto matches the theme as well as the recently refurbished Golf GTI TCR. On request, the special model based on the touring car racing activities of VW receives an increase in performance of the type ABT Power, which leaves even the corresponding race car from the TCR hardly any advantage.
Better ABT driving performance thanks to increased performance
By using the high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC), the performance level of 290 hp (213 kW) climbs to a proud 340 hp (250 kW). Just as high is the increase in torque, which increases by 50 Nm and now amounts to 430 Nm. The increased engine power is also reflected in the better performance: So the maximum country road speed from the stand is now reached in 5.4 instead of 5.6 seconds and the new top speed is 265 km / h.
Suppress sway inclinations with the Golf GTI TCR tuning
Anyone who dares to go to the racetrack will also be impressed by the lateral dynamics of the most powerful GTI. The roadholding can be improved with both the ABT suspension springs and the ABT threaded sports suspension. The final fine-tuning is provided by the ABT Sport Stabilizers, which can even be combined with the standard suspension and reliably suppress any swaying tendencies.
Rims are a special eye-catcher of the Golf GTI TCR
Visually, the customers of the VW refiner can not only differentiate themselves from the base by a subtle lowering. A special eye-catcher are the ABT GR in glossy black mounted on the photo vehicle with its diamond-machined rim flange. With their representative 20-inch dimensions, they are an attractive alternative to the corresponding factory options.
