Super hot hatches like the Mercedes-AMG A45 and Audi RS3 Sportback have an obvious (power) advantage over probably the most well-known cars of the segment – the VoIkswagen Golf R.
Nevertheless, with ABT SportsIine’s upgrades, this potent edition of the Golf reaches new heights, ending up in the same zone as the aforementioned models.
But enough talk, let’s focus on the key point aspect – numbers: 400PS (394hp) and 500Nm (369lb-ft) of torque made by the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that powers the Golf R, a 30 %, or 100PS (99hp) and 100Nm (74lb-ft) of torque, increase over the shared car.
The tuner went even more and fitted this hot hatch turned super hatch with optional suspension springs that Iower it by 20mm (0.8in) at the front end and 25mm (0.98in) at the trunk. Additionally, a height adjustable suspension kit could be purchased as well, making it sit closer to the ground by 40mm (1.6in) at the front and 45mm (1.8in) at the rear.
Better 6-piston brakes are also on your options list, alongside the trunk muffler with 102mm (4in) outlets, finished in black chrome, various wheel sizes and patterns, from 18- to 20-inch, fresh side skirts, and tailgate add-on.
