ABT Programme For The New VW Passat B8
The new generation of the Passat, B8, does even top its predecessors, certainly in terms of elegance and performance, and has won almost any test. But this model is certainly no swot but rather a car people take a shine to right away – especially in combination with the extensive styling and performance package by ABT Sportsline, the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group.

In terms of performance, this package from Bavaria really adds a lot. Thanks to ABT Power New Generation the original 240 hp/ 176 kW diesel now shows 270 hp/ 199 kW and a torque of 540 Nm. “With our specially developed ABT Engine Control unit with its own software, this latest uprating provides utmost power, balance and dependability,” says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt: “Extensive tests on our own dynamometer and on the road and comprehensive follow-up warranties attest to our product’s quality.”

In the new Passat tuned by ABT Sportsline the new sportiness is also felt visually. The body kit shows the Volkswagen at its most dynamic from all angles. From the front spoiler and grille attachment the eyes wander along the side skirt attachments and mirror caps to the rear skirt set and rear spoiler.

The wheel houses also accommodate a visual highlight: the brand new alloy wheel ABT FR in mighty 20’’ with Continental sport-type tyres. With a black-painted corpus and front-polished double spokes, this wheel design embodies luxury, sportiness and elegance. ABT suspension springs, sport-type sway bars and wheel spacers make for an optimised handling. Alternatively ABT Sportsline also provides a wide range of other cast and forged wheels like the DR design in massive 21 inches.
