200kW for VW drop-top

2006-11-23 08:28

The Abt Sportline Eos is a killer drop-top!

Renowned German tuning company Abt Sportsline has made VW's Eos drop-top even sportier, more elegant and more powerful.

The Abt Eos surprises with a number of elements turning it into a sun-worshipping convertible with unmistakable character.

The low front skirt gives the Eos an additional portion of aggressiveness and the side skirts ensure the continuation of the dynamical curves of the vehicle front. According to Abt the 4-pipe rear muffler provides the unique sound required for an "unforgettable" open-roof ride.

The Bavarian tuners have also developed various power packages for Volkswagen's new convertible.

The Abt power upgrades for the 2.0 litre TDI or the commensurate TFSI-engine turn the Eos into a pure sports car. For the

Turbo-petrol version Abt Sportsline has developed various power upgrades increasing the original 147kW to a mighty 200kW. A power boost from 103kW to a powerful 125kW is available for the diesel engine.

  • VW is to launch the Eos in South African early in 2007
