After Oettinger released yesterday its new tuning kit for the Vw Scirocco, today another German tuner, ABT, revealed its customization program for the recently launched hatchback. The new visual upgrade includes a new front bumper, an ABT front grill, new side sills, a new rear wing spoiler and a diagonally attached 4-pipe rear muffler integrated in the new air diffuser. ABT also offers a new set of 18 to 20 inch BR or AR alloy wheels, of course with fitting tires and wheel spacers.
Under the hood the tuner tweaked the ECU and the results were seen immediately: the 1.4 TSI engine develops now 200 hp (from 160 hp) while the 1.9 TDi engine was boosted to 170 hp (from 140 hp). Also, the tuner is currently developing a new kit for the 2.0 TSI engine in order to develop an astonishing 240 hp.
For better stability a new suspension kit was installed, which lowers the car with up to 30 millimeters. Due to the safety reasons, a new brake system was installed. For those who are interested in buying a visual kit for their Scirocco, the price is 5,990 Euros or $8,290. The launch of the kit will be in January 2009.
