Volkswagen cars have a beauty of their own. When these cars happen to meet the creative minds at the ABT Sportsline, a real transformation takes place. And when we are talking about open-top Audis, the convertibles become “sensibly irrational”.
Car tuning has been the forte of ABT Sportsline and AUDI cars have always been their fascination. They have been responsible for creating Audi A5 Convertible. With new front grille, side sills, fender inserts and other bodywork parts make the Audi A5 an epitome of sportiness and power. ABT Sportsline has developed corresponding improvement designs for the different engines of the AUDI A5 to suit the appearance of the convertible. The top model, ABT A5, now has a 3.0 TFSI which can produce a full 435 BHP, as compared to the series-standard 333 BHP.
The AUDI A3 is a popular premium vehicle amongst the lovers of the open-top A3. But those who want the car to be extravagant and dynamic choose the ABT AS3 which is nothing but the A3 tuned by ABT Sportsline, with a perfect tailor-made body kit. The ABT A3 features rear apron, rear wing, the typical ABT 4-pipe rear muffler or the front spoiler insert. These features give the AUDI A3 a more extroverted and sporty appearance from all sides.
The performance of the cars has been improved, too, to match their appearances. The ABT engineers have worked well to improve the power of both the petrol (1.4 TFSI, 1.8 TFSI und 2.0 TFSI) versions as well as the two diesel engines. Just like the R8 Spyder, AS 5 convertible or S5 convertible, the new AS3 gets more power, torque and driving convenience. ABT has also brought a range of alloy wheels to adorn the AS3. Needless to say that ABT has also brought designer wheels in combination with fitting high-performance tyres.
ABT Sportline has been transforming the open-top creations of the Volkswagen Group into real outdoor sports car for quite some time now. “Our definition of the automobile summer is unmistakable design, dynamism and absolute compatibility with everyday life”, states Christian Abt from the ABT Sportsline. A seasoned racing driver, Christian Abt has contributed greatly for developments up to “road-ready” status at the company.
