For ABT, the GTI is simply a love affair. After all, it has been successfully involved in its tuning right from the start. No wonder, then, that the ABT designers and engineers have been working on the seventh generation of this “über-Golf” as well. The result is a car that leaves nothing to be desired and is a real eye-catcher.
The ABT Golf VII GTI is a perfect car that leaves nothing to be desired. You could hardly make the VW evergreen more dynamic or sporty: Front spoiler and front grille underline the strong charisma of the ABT Golf GTI, the headlight covers its aggressiveness. Mirror caps and side skirts form a sort of attractive connection with the rear, which, in turn, with its rear skirt set and trunk lid attachment radiates unobtrusive dominance. The four-pipe exhaust system is a typical ABT design element. When you look at the ABT Golf GTI’s rear, you will certainly know where it has been tuned. Also available is a downpipe with sport catalyst.
The ABT programme for the VW Golf VII GTI is completed by suspension springs that lower the CoG and even increase the standard version’s roadholding capacities. One could also order a height adjustable suspension kit for the front and rear axle as well as anti-roll bars. ABT also has available the right sport-type wheels in different designs and sizes from 18 to 20 inches. To optimize the stopping capabilities a new brake system could be ordered for the front axle.
