When Audi announced that it would offer the TT RS to the North American market, we were stoked about it. Though the TT RS is mighty impressive, we were a little bit disappointed that this awesome sports coupe only delivered 360 horsepower. Lucky for us, ABT Sportsline seems to agree with us that the TT RS can much better.

To help satisfy our power hunger, ABT Sportsline developed an upgrade kit for both the TT RS and the TT RS Plus models that pushes it to extreme levels. The tuner installed a self-developed ABT air-to-air intercooler and an ABT turbocharger.

The end result is an increase in output up to a total of 470 horsepower and 464 pound-feet – up from 343 pound-feet in the stock model. With the extra power under the hood, the ABT TT RS sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 177 mph – this equals a 0.2-second faster 0-to-60 mph time and a 3 mph increase in top speed.

The most powerful model in the Audi A4 lineup comes equipped with a 3.0 TFSI engine that delivers a total of 272 horsepower. Pretty good, but what if the A4 could do better?

ABT Sportsline had this question in mind and developed its new AS4 package that takes the output to an amazing 380 horsepower, which is even more impressive than the 333 horsepower that the S4 delivers. Peak torque was also increased to 369 pound-feet, which represents an increase of 74 pound-feet.

Customers interested can update any other version in the A4 lineup: the 1.8 engine can be increased to 211 horsepower and the 2.0 liter TFSI to 270 horsepower. If you drive a diesel car you can also opt for some improvements. The 2.0 TDI version can be tricked to deliver 205 horsepower and the 3.0 TDI 300 horsepower.

After taking care of the standard seventh-gen Golf and the GTI version , German tuner, ABT Sportsline, decided to do the same with the GTD version .

It’s no surprise that the updates offered for the GTD version are nearly identical to the ones offered in the standard version and include updates to the exterior and some extra horses under the hood.

Most of the work was made under the hood where the tuner installed its ABT Power kit that increases the four-cylinder’s output up to a total of 210 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque - up from the standard 184 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.

To give the Golf the look to match the added power, ABT Sportsline also offers an aerodynamic kit and a set of aftermarket wheels. Also, for a better engine sound, the rear pipes were replaced with new ones.

We never considered the Audi R8 a model that needs much improvement. We think it has everything it needs: beauty, style and power.

The folks over at ABT Sportsline have developed a very cool kit for the 2013 R8 V10 and transformed it into "an extreme athlete." The tuner started by doing some tricks under the hood, including installing an ABT POWERed kit that increases the engine’s output to a total of 600 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque - up from the standard 525 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque.

Thanks to these upgrades, the ABT R8 V10 will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and up to a top speed of 198 mph. That’s a 0.2-second drop in 0-to-60 time and a 2 mph increase in top speed from the factory numbers.

Also, because it is even more powerful than the standard version, the tuner equipped it with new ABT suspension springs and coil-overs that both lowered the car’s ride and improved road behavior.

Volkswagen Tiguan received a first update at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and surprisingly, no major tuning kits have been announced for the small SUV since then. Today however, German tuner, ABT Sportsline, announced a complete upgrade kit for the Tiguan that includes exterior and upgrades for nearly every engine in the lineup.

The exterior kit includes a new front grille, new door strip attachments and for the rear, a new skirt that hides the exhaust pipes and a new spoiler. The tuner is advising its clients to opt for either the ER-C or DR wheels, but CR alloy wheels are also available.

Under the hood, the tuner upgrades both the petrol and diesel engines. The 2.0-liter TDI version is tuned to 140, 170 or 195 horsepower (up from the standard 110, 140 and 170 horsepower). The 1.4-liter turbo version now delivers 160, 180 or 210 horsepower, depending on the version your Tiguan has. For the most powerful engine, the 2.0-liter TSI engine delivers either 230 or 260 horsepower.

Last month, the German tuner, ABT Sportsline, unveiled the Audi AS6 - a tuning kit that develops a total of 420 horsepower. Still, the tuner thought the car could do better and today it announced a second kit called AS6-R that upgrades the output to a total of 600 horsepower.

In order to get this 180-horsepower increase, the new AS6-R received an ABT Power S kit that includes an optimized engine management and an ABT turbocharger. Peak torque has been increased to 553 pound-feet and the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is now made in 3.9 seconds. The speed limiter has also been removed, which allows the AS6-R to now hit a top speed of 192 mph. ABT also installed a new sport-type exhaust system that significantly improved the engine’s sound.

The car’s exterior has also been modified with the addition of a new front skirt add on, a side skirt add on and a new rear spoiler. All new items were made from carbon fiber.

The AS6-R will be offered with new 21-inch wheels wrapped in high-performance tires.


The seventh- generation Golf GTI made its official debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and it already received its first tuning kit. The package was announced by German tuner, ABT Sportsline, and it features two different upgrade kits and an aerodynamic kit that transforms the car into the coolest GTI you will ever see.

For the engine upgrade, ABT is offering two stages. In stage one, the standard 230 horsepower goes up to 270 horsepower. The tuner is currently developing a stage two that will take the engine’s output up to 310 horsepower - a number more suitable for a sports hatch.

The exterior kit combines the most suitable colors for a sports car: white, red and an aggressive black. The aerodynamic kit includes a new front spoiler and front grille, and new mirror caps and side skirts. For the rear, new skirt inserts and trunk lid attachment, plus a new exhaust system with four end pipes.

Customers will have the possibility to choose between two different wheels, measuring 18 or 19 inches and combined with suspension springs that will lower the car’s ride.


German tuner, ABT Sportsline, has prepared an aggressive offensive for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Alongside the RS5-R and the R8 GT-R , the tuner is also going to unveil a kit based on the S6 Avant. In total, the three packages are delivering an amazing output of 1,860 horsepower, so it looks like ABT’s stand is going to be very crowded.

With its new tuning package based on the S6 Avant , ABT wants to prove that even an everyday car can be transformed into "an invincible super sports car."

The standard version S6 Avant is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine that produces 420 horsepower, but ABT managed to increase this output by 180 horsepower to a total of 600 horsepower - an output that makes it even more powerful than the RS6 Avant, which delivers a total of "only" 560 horsepower!

Full details will be unveiled during the car’s official debut in Geneva.

ABT Sportsline always makes some noise at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and this year, you better get ready because the German aftermarket company is prepared to drop the boom.

With a number of programs headed to the biggest auto show of the year, ABT Sportsline is determined to show the gathered masses that it’s one of the best Audi tuners in the world. And what better way to prove that point by bringing a new program for the German brand’s resident supercar: the [http://www.topspeed.com/cars/audi/2013-audi-r8-v10-ar132905.html ].

The GTR program for the R8 GT was actually developed sometime back, but the one that’s going to Geneva is a revised version that features new and exciting modifications.
With every intention of shaving off some weight to make the R8 lighter and faster, ABT Sportsline fitted the German supercar with a new carbon-fiber aero kit that includes a new hood, front and rear aprons, new side skirts and a rear wing. With all these new components in tow, ABT was able to shave 242 pounds off of the R8, no small feat for a car that now weighs just 3,340 pounds. Rounding out the exterior mods include a set of 19-inch forged alloy wheels a new stainless-steel exhaust system, and a coil-over sports suspension with adjustable dampers.

For the engine - the unquestioned highlight of the GTR program - ABT Sportsline did its usual array of magic tricks on the R8’s 5.2-liter FSI engine, increasing the output from 550 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque all the way up to an impressive 620 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque.

With these modifications, the German supercar is now capable of hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds - three-tenths of a second faster than the production model. It is capable of hitting a top speed of 202 mph, a significant job from the standard R8’s 193 mph top speed.

The RS version of the new Audi A5 is one car that definitely needs no upgrades, but German tuner, ABT Sportsline, chose to do it anyways. The tuner will unveil its RS5-R tuning kit, which will upgrade both the look and the engine output of the RS5, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

For the exterior, ABT prepared an aerodynamic kit that includes a new front apron, front splitter, side skirts and rear wing - all made in carbon fiber. The car sits on a set of 20-inch alloy wheels combined with high-performance tires. For the interior, ABT combined the highest quality black and red Alcantara with carbon-fiber insertions on the door panels. The bucket seats received racing stripes and for increased safety a stainless-steel roll cage and four-point seat belts.

The best upgrades were made under the hood where the tuner combined the V-8 engine with a new exhaust system with lateral dual pipes. As a result, the standard 450 horsepower output has been increased by 20 horsepower and the 0-to-60 mph sprint is now made in 4.6 seconds - 0.3 seconds quicker than standard version.
