In the midst of developing a new "Speedy Beetle" tuning program for the all-new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, Abt Sportsline has released these preview renders.
As the largest tuner of Volkswagen Group vehicles, Abt plans to upgrade all engine variants in the range. Starting with the 1.2 TSI the standard 105 PS (77 kW / 103 bhp) will be increased to around 140 PS (103 kW / 138 bhp), while the 1.4 TSI (standard: 160 PS/118 kW/157 bhp) will have around 210 PS (154 kW / 207 bhp). The top of the rnage 2.0-liter turbo VW offers with 200 PS (147 kW / 197 bhp) will receive approximately 230/240 PS (176 kW /236 bhp). For the diesel Speedles the 1.6 litre goes from 105 PS (77 kW / 103 bhp) to 125 PS (92 kW / 123 bhp), and the 2.0 TDI will have 170 PS (125 kW / 167 bhp) versus the standard 140 PS (103 kW / 138 bhp).
Naturally, a comprehensive styling package will be offered as well. Abt will give the Speedle a new front spoiler, a rear skirt insert, rear skirt set with rear muffler and oval exhaust pipes, and side skirts. Decorative trimmings include front and rear headlight brows plus the adhesive graphics kit. For the final touch Abt Performance lowering springs give way to Abt DR wheels in inch size.
More details when Abt puts the finishing touches later this year.
