ABT and the VW Up! – A Car for the Harlem Globetrotters

2012 Geneva Motor Show

ABT is coming to Geneva with a version of the Volkswagen Up!

ABT is planning on putting on a show in Geneva next month and they have just released a few shots of their latest project, based on the Volkswagen Up! The Up!, looking fit for the Harlem Globetrotters, features a body kit and some sporty little tweaks indicative of the German tuner's programs. Globetrotter-esque black and red vertical lines run on the retro two-door city car along with bright red highlights on the headlights and window frames.

Red side skirts and trim around the grille further add to the car's old-school look. The Volkswagen Up! has also received an exhaust pipe tunnel and a sporty double exhaust pipe. No engine modifications have been made, though we will find out more details about the ABT Up! when it makes its debut on March 6th at the Geneva Motor Show.
