ABT RSQ3 wins Auto Bild Allrad readers’ poll – Theo Award for the best tuner

Two awards! While ABT Sportsline didn’t have a booth of its own at this year’s Tuning World Bodensee (30.03.-03.04.), the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group got two important awards presented in the context of this famous German trade fair: the “Yokohama 4×4 Award“ and “Theo Award“. “We are very proud that ABT Sportsline enjoys so much confidence and name recognition,” says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt.

The ABT RSQ3 combines a sports car’s performance and design features to form a compact SUV. The readers of Auto Bild Allrad found this attractive combination so convincing that in the Yokohama 4×4 Award poll they voted it the best tuned SUV. The result was presented to invited guests at the Tuning World Bodensee. With a mighty 410 hp / 301 kW (production version: 310 hp / 228 kW), ABT Power “New Generation“ has upgraded the RSQ3 by no less than 32%. The design-based high CoG notwithstanding, ABT’s sport-type coilovers permit a high speed when taking bends. A wheel spacing of up to 50mm, attractive alloy wheels and a comprehensive aero package make the car look potent as well.

With its both emotional and stylish combination of good looks and high performance, the ABT RSQ3 is not alone, however. Its mix of properties represents the entire ABT Sportsline portfolio and know-how. The brand’s high repute is attested to by the recently won “Theo Award“, also presented at the Tuning World Bodensee. For the readers of the German tuning magazines VW Speed and Tuning ABT Sportsline is still the most popular tuning brand.
