ABT Sportsline’s tuning packages for the Audi TT-RS consisted of just one; the Power Package. This package debuted back in September 2009 and brought the sports coupe to a worthy 420hp and a 0-60mph time of 4.3 seconds. This was much better than the standard 340hp, but ABT knew they could do better. Now, the tuning firm has increased the number of packages by one more to include the Power S package.
The new "Power S" tuning package not only includes chip tuning and an ABT intercooler, but also gets an upgraded ABT turbocharger. The result is a total output of 501 HP and a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4 seconds flat. Don’t worry, they’ve thought about the appearance too. ABT will also be offering a variety of wheels as an aesthetic upgrade.
In the first tuning kit provided for the TT-RS, ABT Sportsline set the top speed limiter to 175mph, but this time, the tuner revealed nothing about the top speed limiter. Of course, that doesn’t mean we don’t expect it to be bumped up anyway.
Stay tuned for more details!
What a force of nature in a very compact coupe: with the new ABT TT-RS a powerful 501 HP (368 kW) is now available with ABT POWER S. That is an impressive 161 HP (118 kW) more than the dynamic series standard model from Ingolstadt. Even with ABT POWER there is still 420 HP (309 kW) available, and with it the TT accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds (series standard: 4.6 seconds). The top speed is then 282 km/h. “It goes without saying that with 501 HP the TT is even more sporty”, says Hans-Juergen Abt. The General Manager of ABT Sportsline explains that the innovative ABT Turbo charger is applied on the POWER S version. With it the TT-RS sprints easily to 100 km/h in just 4 seconds and accelerates on powerfully up to a top speed of 292 km/h. Driving enjoyment, sportiness and the feeling of DTM and ADAC GT Masters champions – at ABT the abbreviation “RS” now more than ever stands for Racing Sport.
Christian Abt is responsible for the excellent driving characteristics and perfect tuning of the ABT TT-RS. “Maximum motorsport feeling with maximum everyday usability” – that is how the experienced racing driver characterises the features of the new vehicle from Bavaria. Anyone who drives the ABT TT-RS knows what its cool features are, and even those who only get to see it for a short time quickly recognise which mould it is cast from: this is because before you can count to three, the powerful Kempten car is already off and away.
As a suitable addition to the fastest ABT TT of all time it is recommended to mount the classy sports alloy wheel creations BR and CR in standard 20 inch. The latest highlight is the
ABT CR Superlight in a sporty 19 inch. The cool design wheels are, of course, also available in combination with high-performance tyres. Anyone who wants to travel fast needs suitable tyres – and Christian Abt has used his experience to also take care of this: “The car is controllable in all situations. Only by ensuring this is it also fun to drive a sports car on the road.”
