VW Touareg by ABT

After Common Rail technology became common, diesel cars stopped being viewed as simply loud, polluting and slow. They became a lot more performance oriented, while still retaining better fuel efficiency compared to their petrol-fueled counterparts. Moreover, their advantage of having more torque became even more apparent and many of them are actually very pleasant to drive.

This is why tuning a diesel is also a common thing nowadays. So, this VW Touareg by ABT Sportline is not a surprise.

And the changes are pretty extensive. First of all, the car  got an all new body kit which includes new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, front spoiler, different side sills and a big diffuser. The ABT grille was expected, as well as ABT wheels ranging in size from 20 to 22 inches.

Sport suspension is both a styling and a performance upgrade. It was needed due to the increased performance coming from an all new ECU setup which boosts the power coming from the 3 l diesel engine to 290 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque.
