ABT Sportsline got their hands on a facelifted Volkswagen Touareg 3.0 TDI and implemented a series of upgrades.

 

Work started underneath the hood where the turbodiesel V6 engine received a power module increasing output from 262 PS (193 kW) and 580 Nm (428 lb-ft) to 290 PS (213 kW) and 650 Nm (480 lb-ft). They say the added power doesn't have a negative impact on fuel consumption and does not affect the engine's reliability in any way.

 

Matching the punchier engine is a slightly more aggressive body thanks to a custom kit which includes a front grille add-on, headlight covers, rear wing and a rear skirt (including quad exhaust tips). ABT has also replaced the standard wheels with their own set of 20- or 22-inch alloys wrapped around in 275/45 R20 or 295/30 R22 tires, respectively.

Other goodies on the menu include a set of lowering springs, ABT Level Control (for models equipped with air suspension), integrated entrance lights and special floor mats & trunk mat.
