I guess everyone realized by now that after developing a selection of tuning packages for all Audi models, ABT Sportsline can easily be considered the industry leader when it comes to customizing Audi vehicles. Obviously, their work has been focusing on performance-oriented Audi models like the R8, RS5 and RS6 Avant. However, ABT Sportsline also provides packages for the Q7 SUV, and that’s  what we’re going ot talk about right now. The Q7 now features some visual tweaks and  appropriately…

Audi AS5 Dark by ABT

The ABT garage is back, with a new project. This is the new Audi AS5 Dark, and it just might be what Batman drives to the supermarket. This pakage was developed for the A5 two-door Coupe and five-door Sportback, and is consists mostly of cosmetics upgrades which, I might add, works best when your Audi is painted or wrapped in black. Which is perfect, ’cause that’s my favorite color. This Audi was fitted with front and rear aprons with red…

The hot hatch segment is probably my favorite scene out there; don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t say no to some awesome cars out there, but in my mind these type of cars are the perfect melange between coolness and practicality. But when a  tuning garage works its magic on the hottest hatchback out there, the Golf, than you better pay attention, son! German specialists ABT added a sports catalytic converter, an ABT exhaust system and, and a new ECU…

Audi S1 by ABT

If you find the Audi S1 boring, the ABT tuning garage is here for you. Although the stock Audi features 228 hp (231 PS), the tuner’s kit enables the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine to develop 306 hp (310 PS) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) instead of 370 Nm (273 lb-ft). There’s no official numbers on acceleration, but I’m guessing the German car will now go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) way faster than 5.8 seconds. Aside from the the…

This one is for the ladies! Volkswagen specialist tuner ABT Sportsline has released an aftermarket package for the Beetle Cabriolet, for those picky VW customers who think the R-line package is not goon enough.

ABT Sportsline, back at it. The garage has been working on a comprehensive upgrade for the Audi S3 Sedan. Now this isn’t really a slow ride as it leaves the Audi factory, but ABT decided that it could do better; so, the team went to work on the 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter TFSI engine, and now it develops 370 PS (272 kW) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft). Much better! The Audi now does the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 4.5 seconds,  0.4…
