Pimped 228kW TT unleashed

2006-09-22 08:17

Abt has given the Audi TT some serious muscle power

The Abt supercharger kit and modifications of the motor management ensure that the 3.2-litre 6-cylinder engine develops 228 kW.

The Abt engineers also did a good job with the TT's existing 2.0 TFSI engine. They upgraded the serial power of 147 kW to 199 kW with a maximum torque of 350 Nm.

Besides the power boost, the modified design of the Abt TT models was one of the most important factors.

Abt has developed special body styling parts that make the TT a real eye-catcher communicating power and dynamics.

With an integrated grille element, the front skirt emphasizes the area around the fog lights and single-frame grille so that the face of the Abt TT becomes even more aggressive and marked.
