ABT is now offering a staggering performance package for the ultra-hot hatchback – Volkswagen Golf R. The tuned vehicle is able to reach 300 km/h (186 mph).

"To top our previous uprating to 370 hp, we have not only optimised the ABT Engine Control software but also installed a sport-type catalytic converter," says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt.

Both the ABT Power and the new, strong ABT Power S kit are based upon the specially developed "New Generation" ABT control unit, which guarantees maximum power and utmost dependability. This has been proven on our own dynamometer and on public roads.

The Golf R also has received a complete aerodynamics package including modified front grille, a pair of headlights covers, new mirror caps, a pair of modified side skirts and last, but not least a tail-gate add-on spoiler.

There are also different wheels in ER-C, DR and CR designs ranging from 18" to 20". The stance is further improved by a height adjustable suspension kit, which can lower the front from 10 to 40mm and the rear from 20 to 45mm.
