The ABT AS5 coupé – A fast coupé and a comfortable travel companion
But in its ABT Sportsline version this extravagant car becomes even more sporty. As the ABT AS5 the car combines a precise and harmonious design with dynamic technology. “For us, it was important to combine this car’s extraordinary design with our ideas and thus to underscore the car’s character. Its increased performance and its body parts form a unit”, saysHans-Jürgen Abt. The traditional Bavarian company’s managing director is very excited about this automobile. “If you look at the AS5, you want to take in every inch of its marvellous silhouette, and if you sit in it, all you want is to get it on the road. This coupé is really a power pack.“
The ABT Golf VI GTI – “The last edition”
Sporty and fast “Golfs” have been carrying the three letters GTI since 1976. ABT was the first place to go for everyone who wanted even more dynamic and driving fun from the very beginning. Each generation of the Golf GTI became its own special outfit and more power. The sixth generation of the compact sports car also bears the magic abbreviation.
