Courtesy of ABT Sportline, the diesel version of the new VW Touareg has received a fairly thorough upgrade package with serous sporty flair. The good-looking ABT VW Touareg TDI is packing a clean 290 horsepower, a tighter chassis, and a unique body kit.
On the styling front ABT VW Touareg TDI benefits from revised front and rear bumpers garnished with custom front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and side sills, plus an ABT front grille and headlight bezels. The kit is complemented with a set of ABT wheels available in sizes 20 to 22 inch in diameter.
Another modifications contributing to both the styling and the performance of the car is the sport suspension system consisting of, depending on the model, sports lowering springs or ABT Level Control electronic module. Interior upgrades are limited at the moment to fancy floor mats.
As for the performance, ABT VW Touareg TDI is equipped with a new ECU software for its 3.0 liter turbodiesel engine that comes in form of an electronic box of tricks. It increases the power output from 260 horsepower and 580 Nm of torque to 290 horsepower with 650 Nm of torque.
