ABT Sports has announced that they have already started to prepare a tuning package for the new Audi A1 . The new ABT A1 will make its world debut on July 28th, 2010.
ABT announced that the new kit will include ABT POWER for the engines of the A1, new suspension components, dynamic aluminum wheels, and other sports accessories. Brochures, an online configurator, fact sheets with technical data, and much more will be revealed in August, the month of the ABT A1.
The tuner will offer three different designs for the fans to choose from. The fan’s choice will be the one that walks away with a victory and a plan of action.
It will be interesting to see the adjustments that ABT makes on the long awaited Audi A1 . The A1 already has a fresh design that was inspired by airplanes with a choice of four engines ranging from 111 MPH to 124 MPH. A sleek looking car, no doubt, but it looks like it is going to get a lot sleeker after ABT has their way with it. We look forward to seeing the final project and will keep you posted as soon as the three choices are revealed!
Press release after the jump.
What a year: following highlights like the AS8, the R8 Spyder and the extremely fast R8 GTR the next big ABT is now in the starting blocks. From 28th July the world’s largest tuner of vehicles from the VW group will be presenting the new ABT A1, a spectacular car based on the compact premium model by Audi. The Bavarian company from Kempten of course remains true to its reputation and ensures that the new recruit “flies out of the blocks” right from the start. ABT is about reveal how much more ABT POWER is available to the engines of the A1 at its presentation. In any case the beautiful compact car will offer plenty of driving pleasure, particularly with its suspension components, dynamic aluminium wheels and other sports accessories. Brochures, the online configurator, fact sheets with technical data and much more will be revealed in August, the month of the ABT A1.
2. Choose your favourite design – the new A1 is already good in three versions ABT Sportsline has of course also designed this Audi so that it retains its cool character – but is still recognisable as a true Bavarian sports car. Three fresh designs are available and as looks are a matter of taste, the tuner is letting fans choose the designs from 28 August on its Facebook page. Will the cool Aloha win out or the funny and charming A1 called Klecks? Perhaps the ABT community will go for the evil High Voltage design with its "toxic" skulls? The result of this exciting contest will of course also be announced on Facebook. Anyone who wants to take part just has to enter “ABT Sportsline GmbH" in the search field of the social network site and become a fan. ABT will be giving away an exclusive journey in the DTM racing taxi, two VIP tickets for a DTM weekend and much more to some lucky participants, enough to make the hearts of real ABT fans skip a beat. So it’s worth taking part when the next big ABT is presented to the community.
