ABT offers tuning package for new Touareg

This time, the Bavarian tuning specialist, ABT, concentrated on increasing the power of the German SUV, while keeping the exterior changes to a minimum.

“More power wouldn’t hurt with a car as diverse as this, but it was important for us that the tuning suited the characteristics of the Touareg”, the company’s general manager, Christian Abt, explained.

Weighing at 2.5 tons, adding more power and torque to the heavy SUV is probably a good idea. Engineers developed the ABT Power kit for 3.0-liter diesel V6, which increases peak output from 240 hp to 282 hp. The second stage of the engine conversion is called Power S and delivers 310 hp. The 4.2-liter V8 diesel also benefit from extra horses, churning out 385 hp with an impressive 870 Nm of torque.

As mentioned previously, exterior appointments are discrete as they are limited to a new front grille, rear wing, rear apron and a 4-pipe exhaust system. Buyers can also update their wheels to the ABT BR or CR wheels, which can be specified in various sizes up to 22 inches.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
