Performance and styling upgrades include 260-hp power boost.

VW tuning specialist ABT Sportsline has revealed a comprehensive aftermarket program for the Beetle Cabriolet. Exterior mods for the drop-top Bug include a restyled front spoiler, body-colored headlight covers, and redesigned rear panel and skirt set. Alloys, ranging from 18 to 20 inches in size, such as the DR gun-metal rims, are matched with custom suspension springs that lowers the convertible by 30 mm at the front and 35 mm at the back.
