Abt Audi TT Roadster

Kempten-based tuner Abt presented a new sport package for the 2008 TT Roadster that follows in the footsteps of the TT-S and TT-R coupe versions. The package includes a full bodykit consisting of a rear wing and front, rear and side skirts. The exterior look is completed with a new ser of 5-spoke allow wheels and a 4-pipe rear muffler incorporated in the rear skirt inset and its integrated rear diffuser.

Abt’s top notch version of the TT Roadster is equipped with the same supercharged 3.2-litre V6 unit that we find under the hood of the TT-R Coupe. With an output of 355Hp, the V6 engine accelerates the car from standstill to 100 km/h in about 5,0 sec. The German tuner also offers various upgrades for the favored 200Hp 2.0-liter Turbo FSI, pushing power from 240Hp up to 300Hp. Chassis upgrades include Abt’s suspension kit along the Abt sports brake system with its huge disc diameters of 380×34 millimeters. –Continued after the jump
