ABT Sportline adds power, punch and presence to the stock TT.
Although the Audi TT coupe and roadster may not be the most exciting rides on the block, but for many people, the look of a sports car is more important than actual performance. With the advent of the TTS, Audi took a step in the right direction, achieving 310 horsepower over the base TT's 230. Now, tuning firm ABT Sportline has decided to give its own treatment to the base TT Roadster, and it is offering improvements that range from performance upgrades to stunning exterior tweaks.
But have they just ended up with another TTS? Taking on the 2.0-liter TFSI engine that comes stock with the TT Roadster, ABT has chip tuned the engine to produce 305 hp and 324 lb-ft of torque. In addition, the tuner has added a rear wing, rear diffuser, a new front bumper and door mirror inserts. In addition, a suspension lowering kit is available, bringing the car 35 mm closer to the ground, while quad exhausts give it some more street cred – but maybe only enough to scare off a TTS. 20-inch alloy wheels and Nardo Gray paint finish off the exterior updates, while the interior gains new floor mats, an Alcantara steering wheel and seats and LED ambient lighting.
