ABT VW Golf 7 Tried & Tested
The Volkswagen Golf isn’t just a car; it is THE car, as the German slogan “DAS Auto” puts it. A phenomenon which has been moving the masses in a simple and uncomplicated way since its introduction in 1974. From the very beginning, ABT Sportsline has been the top source when it comes to speeding up the Golf. As the world’s largest tuning company for cars from the Volkswagen Group the Bavarian business has attended to the latest 7th generation Golf GTI to add unmistakable character of the modern compact car, increasing driving enjoyment even more.
ABT has always ensured the importance of upgrades that make sense from both an ecological and an economical perspective. This ABT Golf GTI 7 is a hot sports car, but, at the same time, it is sensible and suitable for daily use.
The performance upgrades developed up to now ensure improved acceleration values and far more dynamism, even when the car is fully loaded. The ABT AEC Power Kit which costs just RM13,600.00 takes this GTI to 290bhp and 420Nm of torque (with Ron 98 fuel). The 0-100km/h dash is achieved in just 5.9 seconds.
This ABT Golf GTI 7 is a perfect car that meets virtually every requirement of its owner and the car should be allowed to show that. The components developed by the ABT designers make the new Golf appear sportier and more exclusive in a subtle way.
The front spoiler (RM2,799.00) and the front grille (2,099.00) harmoniously emphasise the powerful appearance of the ABT Golf; its headlight covers (RM799.00) show aggressiveness.
Mirror covers and side skirts (RM3,299.00) establish a connection to the rear of the car, which emanates subtle dominance with its rear diffuser and quad muffler (RM7,899.00) and its trunk lid attachment. The four-pipe rear muffler is a typical ABT design element. The rear of the ABT Golf at the latest reveals where this special car comes from.
The ABT programme for the Golf GTI 7 is rounded off by ABT Sportsline matching designer wheels costing RM7,499.00 without tires). After all, the ABT Golf VII is the perfect combination of good sense and fun. Painting and installation is included in the price.
