Essen motor show: Audi RS3, TTS Coupe and VW Passat Variant adopt ABT livery image
ABT Sportsline has decided the 2015 Essen Motor Show is the right venue to present three of its modification packages, operated on the Audi RS3 Sportback, TTS Coupe, and the family oriented Volkswagen Passat Variant.
The ongoing event features the RS3 Sportback sporting a red matte body wrap and comes equipped with the updated 5-cylinder 2.5-liter turbo now churning out a massive 450 PS (331 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft). It has been also equipped with a new sports exhaust system with four 102-mm tips with a nice black chrome finish. The exterior appearance is complemented by the 19-inch ER-F forged wheels and the body also sits tucked closer to the road thanks to the lowered suspension (30 mm front & 25 mm rear).
Next up is a blackish TTS Coupe that comes with some minor exterior design changes that will serve as the appetizer to the enhanced 2.0-liter turbo now delivering 400 PS (294 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft). We also see at work the quad exhaust system, as well as the lowering spring kit (35 mm front & 30 mm rear), while ABT also tweaked the cabin a bit.
Last, but not least is the family wagon – the VW Passat Variant – which comes in a more practical diesel power stance. ABT naturally messed a little with the 4-cylinder, calling it the 2.0 BiTDI and pushing out an impressive 270 PS (199 kW) and 540 Nm (399 lb-ft) of torque.
