ABT Announces World Premiers For 2017 Essen Motor Show 30

With this year’s Essen Motor Show about to have its preview day on Friday, December 1st, ABT Sportsline has prepared a few treats for all car enthusiasts to enjoy.

Not only will they be presenting a 500 PS RS3, but a ‘1 of 10’ SQ7 SUV will also be on deck, as will the tuner’s Golf VII R, boasting 400 PS of its own.

Furthermore, the ABT Power Monitor, which provides a live overview of the power boost, among many other features, is also making its world premiere at Germany’s largest annual vehicle exhibition, now having its 50th anniversary.

Now let’s talking about the cars. With the RS3, the tuning package costs €16,900 ($20k), and the price for the complete vehicle is €74,390 ($88,500). All that money gets you a 500 PS (493 HP) engine, custom springs, anti-roll bars, brake upgrade kit and a special damper setup.

Not only does ABT’s RS3 supposedly ride and handle great, it also sounds more aggressive thanks to the tuner’s exhaust system, featuring two 102 mm (4 in) double pipes painted matte black. As for its aesthetics, ABT added a front skirt add-on, a grille add-on, a rear skirt set and quite a few touches to the interior as well.

Moving on to the ABT Vossen SQ7 ‘1 of 10’, this project came to life when the two aftermarket companies joined forces to create a very limited edition Audi SUV. It comes with 520 PS (512 HP) and 970 Nm (715 lb-ft) of torque, and can also sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds.

When it’s not busy doing things in a straight line, the ABT Vossen SQ7 will gladly show off its wide body package consisting of a front skirt, fender extensions, door strip attachments and a rear skirt add-on with carbon pipes. Also available are the rear wing and fender inserts, while additional carbon fiber bits can be found on the grille, front lip and even on the doors. Inside, there’s plenty of carbon fiber, a “1/10” badge on the dashboard and door sills, and seats that have been bolstered by Alcantara inlays and ABT logos.

Now, what Vossen did to the SQ7 was to add split five-spoke 10×22″ wheels, polished with a brushed face in ‘Stealth Grey’. As for the price, the package costs €54,900 ($65,300), and the complete vehicle is €147,790 ($175,858). Oh and the Night Blue matte metallic wrap is another €4,690 ($5,580) on top of everything else.

Finally, we have the least powerful car here, which is the 400 PS (394 HP) ABT Golf VII R, also putting down a hefty 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to ABT’s optional sprints, the car has been lowered by 20 mm (0.7 in) at the front and 25 mm (0.9 in) at the rear, although if you get the tuner’s height-adjustable suspension kit, you can lower the front axle by as much as 40 mm (1.57 in), and the rear by 45 mm (1.77 in).

Other mods include a custom rear muffler with 102 mm (4 in) outlets, custom alloys, side skirts and a tailgate add-on.

Audi SQ5 Gets The ABT Treatment, Comes With 419HP 16

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in ABT, audi, Audi Q5, Audi SQ5, tuning on 11 16th, 2017


ABT Sportsline continue to upgrade various Audi models, and their latest work revolves around the SQ5.

The range-topping version of the premium compact SUV is already powerful, as it makes 354PS (349hp) and 500Nm (369lb-ft) of torque straight from the factory.

However, after paying a visit to ABT, this Audi SQ5 is good for 425PS (419hp) and 550Nm (406lb-ft) of torque. The output may seem familiar to some, and they’re not wrong, because it’s identical to the ABT-tuned Audi S5 Coupe and Cabriolet models, which share the same 3.0-liter TFSI engine.

Now, since the German tuning firm wasn’t satisfied with the way the stock Audi SQ5 looked, they fitted their example with a more aggressive body kit. This includes a new front bumper, tweaked grille, larger side skirts, and roof-mounted spoiler, in addition to some carbon fiber trim.

A lowered suspension is also part of the offerings, along with the 20-inch alloy wheels, and real exhaust tips that replace the fake ones that equip the stock vehicle, integrated into the flashy diffuser.

ABT Sportline Audi RS3 Headed To Essen With 460 HP 9

ABT Sportsline has unveiled its latest tuning program for the Audi RS3 Sedan and RS3 Sportback.

Set to debut at the Essen Motor Show, the models can be equipped with an assortment of different styling accessories including front fender vents, a revised grille, and 19- or 20-inch wheels. Customers can also order a gloss black rear skirt and a sports exhaust system with a matte black finish.

The company didn’t release interior photos but the cabin can be outfitted with carbon fiber trim, special floor mats, and illuminated door sill plates. Other options include an ABT-branded shifter and push-button ignition.

On the performance front, the turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine can be equipped with a new ECU which enables the mill to produce approximately 460 PS (338 kW) and 530 Nm (390 lb-ft) of torque – an increase of 60 PS (44 kW) and 50 Nm (36 lb-ft). ABT declined to say how fast the upgraded model is but the change increases the limited top speed to 280 km/h (174 mph).

Besides the upgraded engine, the RS3 can be outfitted with sport springs, new anti-roll bars, and a more powerful braking system.

ABT Has Its Way With The Audi A5 And S5 Sportback Models 8
Nov
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in ABT, audi, Audi A5, Audi A5 Sportback, Audi S5, tuning on 11 8th, 2017


The new generation Audi A5/S5 Sportback is, by all means, an attractive ride, yet ABT Sportsline believes that it needs some visual work and additional power to reach its full potential.

This is exactly why they took the S5 variant of the car and fitted it with the ABT Engine Control, which, along with other technical upgrades, allows the 3.0-liter V6 engine to feed 425PS (419hp) and 550Nm (406lb-ft) of torque, to the wheels.

If you find the extra 66PS (65hp) and 50Nm (37lb-ft) of torque familiar, you’re right, because the tuner has already applied the same updates to the S5 Coupe and S5 Cabrio as well.

Among the visual work applied by ABT to the Audi S5 Sportback you’ll find the front spoiler with air splitter, distinctive diffuser design, and chrome tailpipes, in addition to a selection of wheels in various patterns and colors, 19- and 20-inch in size.

The same updates have been equipped to the S5 Cabriolet as well, with the only difference being the black-finished tailpipes.

Owners of the regular Audi A5 models haven’t been forgotten by the tuner either, as their engine control unit can also be fitted to the 2.0 TFSI engine, raising its output from 252PS (248hp) to 330PS (325hp), and to the 2.0 TDI where it adds an additional 25PS (25hp) to the stock 190PS (187hp). The two versions of the 3.0-liter TDI diesel now make 250PS (246hp) and 325PS (320hp), from the standard 218PS (215hp) and 272PS (268hp), respectively.
