Even though with a standard 300 horsepower turbo engine the Volkswagen Golf R is one of the most formidable hot hatches ever built, ABT Sportline’s CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt believes there is room for improvement still, and he set about proving it.
He couldn’t have nailed it better, as what he came up with in form of ABT Golf R is a 400 horsepower monster trapped in a hatchback body. The car gets the new generation ABT Power S kit including deep electronic modifications plus new exhausts, resulting in an output of 400 PS and 480 Nm of torque.
To keep this beast in check you have rely on ABT height adjustable suspension kit (lowering: front 10-40mm, rear 20-45mm) and a set of 18 or 19-inch ABT Wheels, plus your own driving skills!
ABT Golf R also looks pretty tough too, what with aerodynamic kit consisting of front grille, headlight covers, mirror caps, side skirts, and rear spoiler. For the interior you have to settle for integrated entrance light and floor mats.
