Abt Sporstline has unveiled a more potent version of the Volkswagen Golf R which has a standard 199kW (270 PS / 266 hp) TSI engine displacing 2.0-litres.

"The compact car is really good fun, particularly on corners", says Hans-Juergen Abt.""VW gave the Golf dynamism when it was in the cradle - it defines sportiness in its class. And the Golf R is the champion of fast Golfs."

Abt has thus endowed the car with new powers going up to 228kW (310 PS /306 hp). It is now capable of going from 0 - 100km/h in 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 261km/h (162 mph).

Body installations from the previously announced Abt Golf VI GTI include a front skirt, a front lip spoiler, Abt daytime running lights and wheels measuring between 18-inch and 19-inch in size.
