The cherry for the top of ABT’s Essen cake is a heavily tricked-out Golf VII GTI. The car gets not only a heavily styling makeover that gives it a super mean and aggressive appearance, it also gets the power to go with it. It has 300 horsepower.
Of course, 300hp is not crazy power, but when you realize the standard car, which is a pretty awesome machine, has only 210, you get all hot for the ABT Golf GTI Dark Edition. With that kind of power, the GTI goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 258 km/h.
As for the styling, the car gets dark taillights, mirror caps and headlight covers to complement its side skirts, front spoiler and front skirt, the trunk lid attachment and rear skirt set with four-pipe chromed black exhaust system. A set of 20-inch ABT CR wheels in black with 235/30 R20 high-performance tires complete the look. ABT has softened the edges of this dark machine with some very nice red accenting.
The uber-Golf also gets ABT height adjustable suspension kit, but there is no word on any interior modification except for some fancy red and black floor mats.
