ABT Sportsline has arrived at the 2015 Essen Motor Show with a trio of tuned cars: Audi RS3 Sportback, TTS Coupe, and a Volkswagen Passat Variant.
First up, the RS3 Sportback featuring a matte red body was unveiled just a few days ago with an upgraded 5-cylinder 2.5-liter turbo rated at 450 PS (331 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft). It also has a sports exhaust system with four 102-mm tips finished in black chrome and rides on 19-inch ER-F forged wheels. The vehicle has been brought closer to the road thanks to a set of lowering springs (30 mm front & 25 mm rear) and ABT also tweaked the interior a bit.
Moving on, the black TTS Coupe has received some subtle styling revisions to go along with the beefier 2.0-liter turbo now pushing out 400 PS (294 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft). There’s also a quad exhaust system, lowering springs (35 mm front & 30 mm rear), and some minor changes on the inside.
Lastly, the Volkswagen Passat Variant is the oldest of the bunch and the only one with a diesel engine. ABT fiddled around with the punchy 4-cylinder, 2.0 BiTDI and squeezed 270 PS (199 kW) and 540 Nm (399 lb-ft) of torque.
All three cars will be on display at the Essen Motor Show in Germany until December 6.
