Making great cars even better - with the help of some added power.
Tuning firm ABT Sportsline brought a great variety of tuned German-built cars to this year's Geneva Motor Show. Beginning with the Audi QS3, they increased total output from its 2.0-liter TDI from 174hp to 202hp. At the same time, the 2.0-liter TFSI has been increased to a total output of 267hp. The exterior is treated to a body package made up of a redesigned front bumper and grille, door strip attachments, and a rear spoiler and bumper. And yes, buyers can also opt for those body graphics.
Also on display is their newly tuned VW Beetle. In addition to increasing the iconic model's 2.0-liter TFSI to a total of 240hp, the tuner has added a body kit made up of headlight masks, mirror caps, and redesigned side skirts. Lastly, the Audi AS6 Avant was given the special treatment via an increased output from the 3.0-liter V6 diesel to 360hp. They also added a body kit that consisted of front and rear spoilers, new side skirts, and even a quad-tailpipe exhaust unit.
