Volkswagen Transporter Receives ABT Treatment


The Volksiebus gets some added grunt plus a striking body kit thanks to VAG specialists ABT.

Tuning company ABT is the world’s largest tuner of Volkswagen Group products and it has considerable experience with the entire portfolio. Now the Transporter gets the ABT goodness.

This time, its the Volkswagen Transporter which receives a go-faster kit. It’s not just a visual overhaul as there’s a performance tune too. Dubbed the ‘ABT Power Performance Upgrade’, this gives the Transporter quite the performance boost. The 2.0-litre motor goes from 148 kW and 450 Nm to 169 kW and 490 Nm. There's also a tuning kit for the lesser-powered derivatives.

ABT will also do you a suspension upgrade and the Height Adjustable Suspension kit can lower the Transporter, giving it the stanced and slammed look.

Of course, you’ll want your Volkswagen Transporter to actually look the part too and ABT has you covered with its ABT Aero Package which can be had as single components or a complete kit. There’s a front skirt, grille, side skirts, rear bumper with quad exhausts and a rear wing. There are also some tasteful alloy wheels, either 19-inch or 20-inch with the choice of either matte black or diamond-cut finishes.
