Professional athletes don’t just move about powerfully and skilfully but also are characterized by a tense and precise posture. This makes for a pleasant look and success is almost guaranteed. Thus, ABT Sportsline adds suspension kits to its power upgrades, and also specially adapted sport-type sway bars for the front and rear axle. These do not only reduce the car’s tilt in bends or when changing direction quickly but also rolling or understeering. Another positive effect is caused by a redistribution of wheel loads, leading to a more dynamic handling.
“Sport-type sway bars are more than just some metal rods,” says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. “They mean a more sporty handling, without too many compromises.” The ABT products are of high-quality workmanship and thus low-maintenance and do not make the car more uncomfortable during the compression stage. Plus, the components’ dimensions between front and rear axle are geared to each other. And the sport-type sway bars can be used with both mass-production suspensions or ABT sport-type suspensions or other aftermarket products. Customers will find the right solution for any set-up and suspensions can be modularly retrofitted at any time.
Currently, the ABT sport-type sway bars are available for the VW Golf VII, GTI and R, Audi A3, S3 and RS3, the TT and TTS, the Seat Leon and the Skoda Octavia, plus the new VW Passat limo and estate. Other models will follow successively.
