Now, we have even better news for you, as ABT Sportsline has announced it is currently working flat out on the Kempten version of the new VW Beetle. This is huge, as ABT is the world’s biggest tuner for the VW Group and these boys take their jobs very seriously.
The tuner already has a lot of experience with what’s under the bonnet of the 2012 Bug and has given out estimative performance levels for the project: the 1.2 TSI will be boosted from 105 hp standard to 140 hp, while the 1.4 TSI will grow from 160 hp to 201 hp. “The two-litre turbo VW offers 200 HP or 147 kW, and we expect that the ABT version will provide 230/240 hp," says Abt.
Meanwhile, in the diesel department, the 1.6 TDI will provide 125 HP instead of 105 hp, and the 2.0 TDI will have 170 HP instead of the usual 140 hp.
