ABT tunes the Volkswagen Golf R to 400 PS

ABT decided to infuse more power into an already menacing five-door hot hatchback, the Volkswagen Golf R. Their main focus was on the four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine which has received the tuner’s Power S control unit as well as a sport catalytic convertor. These hardware changes have enabled the motor to develop an additional 100 PS (73 kW) and 100 Nm of torque which means the Golf R by ABT seen in these images offers no less than 400 PS (294 kW) and 480 Nm of torque.
