ABT Sportsline Bringing 350 PS Cupra Ateca To Essen Motor Show

Deliveries of the Cupra Ateca haven’t even started, and a tuned version is already coming our way.

ABT Sportsline will become the first company to release a tuning kit for the Spanish performance SUV at this year’s Essen Motor Show that takes place between December 1-9. While the standard model offers a healthy output of 300 PS (296 hp) and an equally satisfying peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft), ABT takes things one step further.

The power kit lifts the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine’s output to 350 PS (345 hp) and the maximum torque to 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) between 2,000 and 5,200 rpm.

At 5.0 seconds, the tuned Ateca is 0.2-seconds quicker to the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint than the stock model thanks to the extra power and standard launch control system. Top speed is now 255 km/h (158 mph), or 8 km/h (5 mph) faster than the factory version.

The souped-up engine is accompanied by a set of lowering springs from ABT Sportsline to ensure the SUV copes with the enhanced performance. No other hardware changes are made to the SUV, which still features a seven-speed DSG transmission that sends power to all four wheels via the 4Drive all-wheel-drive system.

Styling-wise, the 20-inch ABT Sport GR alloy wheels are the only update available at the moment.

      I actually earn close to $24,000-$25,000 each month through the internet. I lost my job after working for the same company for several years, I wanted reliable earnings. I was not thinking about the “get rich overnight” packages you see all over the net. Those are all mlm programs or stuff in which you have to sell to your friends and relatives. The most exciting part of working via internet is that I am always home with the little kids and also I easily go out on family trip for long time. Honestly,it is actually simpler than you would believe. I got the instructions kit and within a month I was earning over $4,000 per month. You don’t have to be technical, but you should be aware how to use the internet. If you can fill forms and surf web sites, you can do it very easily, You don’t even have to sell anything. It is as simple as being on any search engine like google or doing copy paste job. Let me show you what I do… RAWTRIFT.TUMBLR.COM
