Volkswagen Arteon Gets Modest Updates From ABT

ABT Sportsline has dropped its first aftermarket take on the Volkswagen CC’s successor, the sexy looking Arteon.

The sports saloon can now be had with the German tuner’s grille emblem, in chrome, matte black, or black chrome, a selection of wheels in a variety of patterns, colors, and sizes ranging from 18- to 22-inch, and lowering springs that drop the car closer to the ground by 25mm (0.98in) at the front, and 30mm (1.18inch) at the rear.

ABT says that the final lowering rate “varies depending on the configuration of the vehicle”, telling customers at the same time that these are not suitable for certain models, so you might want to check out their online configurator here, before making a deposit.

Coinciding with the introduction of the Volkswagen Arteon’s modest updates, ABT has also launched complete winter wheels for a variety of Volkswagens and Audis, which are said to provide them “with distinctly more precision during steering and braking”.

    Looks great! But that front overhang uugh!!! Kill it. It should have been an RWD to make a Kia Stinger rival.
