On Saturday, 01.12.2018 we plan an autograph session with Daniel Abt starting at 11 o'clock.
Would you prefer something more compact for the city? Then the ABT RS3 in Viper Green is a great recommendation: The pocket rocket from Kempten in Bavaria combines a whole lot of tuning extras and an unbelievable 500 horsepower (368 kW) in the body of a compact car. The combination of the specially developed ABT Engine Control unit (AEC) with charge air cooler and special exhaust system achieves an impressive extra 25 percent power, compared to the production model with 400 HP (294 kW).
ABT Sportsline and the RS3 can be found at the joint area of Continental in hall 3, stand 3A41.
The ABT Sportsline tuning portfolio for the brand with the four rings is enormous and there is hardly anything in the production range that cannot be topped by the Bavarians. Even an RS 5 with 450 HP (331 kW) had to go to boot camp here! The special edition ABT RS5-R, which is limited to 50 cars, not only looks super tough with its Aerokit and Aerowheels in Racing Gold, but also has plenty under the hood with 530 HP (390 kW).

Compared to the hybrid station wagon ABT Audi RS6-E, of which there is currently only one specimen, even the rare Golf VII GTI Clubsport S almost seems like mass production. This car already impresses with the key figures of the internal combustion engine, which itself offers 730 HP (537 kW). If the driver wants to take the car's acceleration to the max, electric power from the transmission tunnel can be additionally used above 100 km/h. This releases an additional 288 HP (213 kW) and 317 Nm for a brief period. Overall, this results in a system power of 1,018 HP and 1,291 Nm. That is definitely hard to top.
The RS6-E can be found at the AUTO BILD SPORTSCARS stand 3A25 in hall 3.
With the Golf VII GTI Clubsport S, H&R and ABT Sportsline present another compact rocket. 370 HP (272 kW) instead of 310 HP (228 kW) as well as a racing suspension turn this car into a real track tool. The forged rims of type ABT ER-F are an additional special feature. Even the production version is already a rarity, as only around 100 Clubsport S were ever sold in Germany.
The GTI Clubsport can be found at H&R in hall 7, stand 7A10.
ABT Sportsline in Germany is the world’s largest tuner for vehicles of the VW Group, especially for Audi models. The product line ranges from more engine power to body kits, over suspensions and interior design, to an extensive collection of alloy wheels. The ABT Individual program allows even for exclusive tailor-made solutions. The Bavaria-based company also competes in racing activities at the highest international level: For example for Audi at the DTM (German Touring Car Masters) or also very successfully at the Formula E. The first steps in the electric racing series were already taken in 2014 and crowned with the championship title in 2017.
At the cutting edge of technology since 1896
The roots of ABT Sportsline go back to a farrier’s shop which was founded in Kempten, Bavaria, in 1896. Their most innovative product: A carriage which, thanks to a clever folding mechanism, could be used as a sled. Soon after, the focus turned to motor vehicles: From approx. 1920 on, AUTO-ABT sold and repaired the former brands, which later gave birth to the Audi AG. This set the stage for the company’s situation today. In 1950, Johann Abt, the founder’s grandson, won his first car race and laid the foundation for the company’s racing activities. But he also enjoyed fast cars in everyday life. For this reason he founded ABT Tuning in 1967, in 1978 he tuned the first VW Golf and already in 1980 he brought the first chip tuning product to the market. After that, things went very quickly. Finally, in 1991, the new prestigious company headquarters, which also includes an own museum, were established in the “Johann Abt”-Street. In 2014, a motor sport center was added.
