ABT VW New Beetle Cabriolet
The VW Beetle has a long-standing legacy of power and excitement, and the return of the New Beetle has been greeted with great enthusiasm. Abt Sportsline has added to its charm with further technical and optical features. To bridge the past and the present, the company has designed the Abt New Beetle ‘Classic’. For the Beetle’s many sporting enthusiasts, Abt has a special Rally Collection.
When it comes to engine enhancements, only the latest advancements are utilised. The 2.0-litre engine power can be boosted to around 105kW (143 hp) with Abt’s capacity extension, custom crankshaft, special pistons, cylinder head modification, mid-silencer, optimised air ducting and modified electronic engine management. The 1.8-litre turbo engine power can be enhanced to 142 kW (193 hp) and the 1.9-litre TDI from 66kW (90 hp) to 85kW (112 hp) with Abt’s expertise.
To add even more excitement to the New Beetle, Abt is offering various accessories like back-silencers, aluminium gear lever knob and pedals, and stainless steel running boards. A set of Abt Sportsline-themed floor mats and a brake kit are also available. On the outside, there are 14 wheel designs to choose from, including the brand-new Z5 wheel (8 x 18").
Those nostalgic for the original Beetle appearance should look no further than Abt's New Beetle ‘Classic’ body kit. It includes running board sets, mudguards, front and rear bumpers, front grille, chrome fog headlamp frame, headlamp visor and V-rims (7.5 x 17 inch).
Lastly, Abt Sportsline and Thyssengas have collaborated to create a 230hp natural gas-powered Rally Beetle as part of the German Rally Challenge and German Rally Championship. Abt's range for the Rally Beetle, which includes a roll-cage and extra headlights, is available in one complete package or piece-by-piece.
