Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet by ABT

Αν κάποιος κάτοχος ενός Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet θέλει να βελτιώσει το αυτοκίνητό του, η ABT του προσφέρει ένα ολοκληρωμένο κιτ. Εμφανισιακά μπορεί να προσθέσει στο ανοικτό Beetle νέο μπροστά spoiler, πλαϊνά πάνελ, πλαϊνές ποδιές, φρυδάκια, ζάντες από 18″ έως 20″, χαμηλότερη ανάρτηση κατά 30 mm μπροστά και 35 mm πίσω, νέες απολήξεις εξατμίσεων, ενώ από το μενού δεν μπορούσαν να απουσιάζουν μεγάλα φρένα με δίσκους διαστάσεων 345×30 mm με μαύρες δαγκάνες.

Μηχανικά, οι Γερμανοί μπορούν να δυναμώσουν όλη την διαθέσιμη γκάμα κινητήρων του Beetle. Ο 1.2 TSI μετά τη βελτίωση παράγει 140 άλογα με 220 Nm ροπής, με τον 1.4 TSI να αποδίδει 210 άλογα με 280 Nn ροπής. Ο 2.0 TFSI αποδίδει 240 άλογα με 340 Nm ροπής, ενώ η έκδοση με τα 210 άλογα, μετά τη βελτίωση της ABT αποδίδει 260 άλογα με 350 Nm ροπής. Ο 1.6 TDI παράγει 125 άλογα με 285 Nm ροπής, ενώ ο 2.0 TDI αποδίδει πλέον 170 άλογα με 370 Nm ροπής.

What some insects are able to do, despite their small size, is really quite astonishing. With up to 260 hp / 191 kW this Bavarian Beetle is certainly one of the fastest animals out there. This is due to ABT Sportsline, the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group, which has uprated the Beetle Cabrio 2.0 TSI with its original 210 hp / 154 kW. But ABT Power New Generation, the equally innovative and dependable uprating with its own control unit and software, can also make the other convertible engine variants “crawl” faster.

The 1.2 TSI, for example, is upgraded from 105 hp / 77 kW to 140 hp / 103 kW, the 1.4 TSI from 160 hp / 118 kW to 210 hp / 154 kW and the “little” 2.0 TSI with 200 hp / 147 kW to 240 hp / 176 kW. But diesel drivers also get their due: the 1.6 TDI is upped from 105 hp / 77 kW to 125 hp / 92 kW and the 2.0 TDI from 140 hp / 103 kW to 170 hp / 125 kW. All engines also got extra torque. Beetles live very near the ground, of course, which is why ABT suspension springs (front axle -30mm, rear axle -35mm) guarantee “species-appropriate husbandry” and a higher speed when taking bends.

This Beetle is not a “curb crawler”. ABT has made it very racy, also with the brake system with its 345 x 30 mm discs, steel flex lines and black callipers bearing the ABT logo. By contrast with its insect relatives, the ABT has no wings. After all, a too large spoiler kit would not really fit the round and attractive Beetle silhouette. “The ABT Aero-Kit is therefore harmonious. It uses a front spoiler, head and tail light covers, rear panel and rear skirt set with a two-pipe exhaust system that make this Beetle different indeed, while still appearing very natural,” says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt.

And, of course, the ABT Beetle Cabrio also doesn’t have six legs. Instead, it has four attractive DR 20’’ gun-metal wheels or the ER-C and CR models and various colours and sizes. “Sunbathers” can thus lend their Beetle convertible a personal touch, which will certainly make it even more attractive.
