At the Essen Motor Show 2013, the Bavarian-tuned GTI will be seen in a very special version. The exterior decorative set with the striking lettering on the C-pillar, the trunk lid attachment or at the headrests are part of the overall concept of technology and design. And the ABT Golf VII GTI Dark Edition looks quite assertive for a reason. "After all, the GTI has always been part of the family. We have always teased out the best performance from all its generations," says Hans-Jürgen Abt. The ABT Sportsline CEO points out that it is traditional to combine roadworthiness and fun.

The German tuner has bumped the power from 200 hp to a quite respectful 300 hp (221 kW). Thus equipped, the GTI has very convincing characteristics indeed: its top speed is 258 km/h and it reaches 60 mph in 5.6 seconds.

The dark taillights, mirror caps and headlight covers are typical of the ABT Sportsline design and part of its consistent overall concept. This also comprises side skirts, front spoiler and front skirt, the trunk lid attachment and a rear skirt set with a four-pipe chromed black exhaust system. ABT recommends the sporty and light ABT CR alloy wheels in 20 inches and with 235/30 R20 high-performance tires.

ABT Sportsline has also given this "über-Golf" new sport stabilizers and above all the intelligent ABT height adjustable suspension kit.
