ABT Tuned VW Up! Is Retro Chic
Hans Jurgen ABT himself says the new Up! is fun to drive around town and especially on narrow streets. It even reminded of the little Abarths his father used to drive.
The Up! has been tuned with a mix of modern and retro styling. Window frames and side skirts are the “common thread” leading straight to the strong back of the ABT up!, where rear masks, an exhaust pipe tunnel and the sporty double exhaust pipe form a unit, the tuner says.
This little car screams “consumer market”, but does so in a very stylish way. Sadly, we can’t report on any power boost, and if any is coming it will take a long time to get here, as the Up! comes with a brand new, never before tuned engine.
