Teased: ABT Sportsline’s Lineup for Geneva

The Geneva Motor Show will host ABT Sportsline’s lineup of tuned automobiles.

ABT Sportsline wants to absolve themselves of the title 'just another tuning company.' The tuners plan on unveiling four new aftermarket programs at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show and they involve models from Audi and Volkswagen. The Volkswagens tuned by ABT include the Beetle and the Up!. The Beetle will feature a reduced ride height for a low profile along with a headlight mask and a set of 20-inch alloys.

The Bug's 2.0-liter TFSI engine will be tweaked for an increased output, up to 240hp. The Up! gets a body kit featuring headlight masks, mirror caps and redesigned side skirts. As ABT describes their Up! "The only conservative thing about it is its fuel consumption." How about that. The Audis undertaken by ABT are the Q3 SUV and the AS6 Avant wagon. The QS3 (S added for sportiness) packs some added power, giving the 2.0-liter TSI engine an output of 270hp. A front spoiler and rear wing has been added to its aggressive and sporty body kit. The AS6 Avant might feature the most extensive package of the four.

The "premium transporter's" 3.0-liter V6 diesel has been boosted from 313hp to a solid 360hp. A body kit is also equipped, featuring redesigned side skirts, spoilers on the front and rear and a quad-tailpipe exhaust system. The 2012 Geneva Motor Show kicks off on March 8th. ABT's four aftermarket programs are set to debut there at the 82nd running of the event.
