ABT Audi A1 Sportback Is Cool
Now, there’s even a go-faster version of the A1 Sportback, tuned by the specialists at ABT Sportsline. With some coaxing and caressing, the 1.4-liter TFSI petrol engine has been tweaked from 185 hp to 210 hp, making it a truly hot hatch with a top speed of 240 km/h and a naught to 100 km/h time of 6.6 seconds.
Further down the range, ABT has tuned the base 1.4-liter from 122 hp to 160 hp, and the 1.2-liter model from 86 hp to 110 hp. There’s even a hot diesel, the 2.0 TDI top model that’s been tuned from 143 hp to 170 hp.
“There is the chilly ALOHA in its Hawaii look, the charming and funny KLECKS or the waspish
HIGH-VOLTAGE with its martial Skulls“, CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt explains.
Among the cosmetic changes, we’re really big fans of the custom, mid-mounted dual exhaust and the 18-inch DR wheels or the 17 or 18-inch Z Titan ones.
