Volkswagen Golf GTI Dark and Polo R WRC Street by ABT Sportsline

ABT Sportsline has announced details of its new Golf GTI Dark and Polo R WRC Street programs.

Painted in black with red details, the Golf wears dark taillights, mirror casings and headlight covers along with side skirts, a front apron with lip spoiler, an embossed tailgate strip and rear skirt shrouding four chromed black tailpipes. Chassis tweaks include sport stabilisers and a height adjustable coilover suspension kit, while the factory alloys make way for ABT’s 20-inch CR wheels finished in gloss black and wrapped in 235/30 high-performance tyres.

Under the hood, the company’s Power Kit allows output from the 2.0 TSI to develop 221 kW (300 hp) rather than 169 kW (230 hp) meaning the 0-100 km/h time drops from 5.5 seconds to 5.8s, while top speed is increased to 258 km/h (160 mph).

Packing a near-identical 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, the Polo R WRC Street responds to ABT’s upgrade in a similar manner, making 213 kW (290 hp) and 420 Nm instead of 162 kW (217 hp) and 349 Nm. Customers can also opt for the 8 x 18-inch DR or Z5 alloy wheel upgrade.
