ABT Sportsline tunes the Volkswagen Golf R to 370 HP

ABT Sportsline has introduced a new tuning program for the Volkswagen Golf R.

On the styling front, the model can be equipped with a front lip spoiler, a revised grille and headlight covers. The company will also offer extended side skirts, a rear wing and a sporty diffuser. Last but not least, there are attractive mirror caps and ER-C alloy wheels with a dark finish.

The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine has been outfitted with a "specially developed control unit" which enables it to produce 370 HP (272 kW) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 70 HP (51 kW) and 80 Nm (59 lb-ft). Thanks to the extra oomph, the hatchback can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 265 km/h (164 mph) - improvements of 0.6 seconds and 15 km/h (9 km/h).
