As with the Transporter 6.1 and Multivan 6.1, the facelifted California gains more tech and updated styling.
The converted Transporter joins the Crafter riot and Caddy dog vans in VW’s special vehicles lineup.
The new VW Transporter 6.1 follows in the footsteps of the recently-unveiled Multivan 6.1.
ABT’s lineup in Geneva included the Audi Q8, A6 Avant, RS4+ and VW e-Transporter.
The facelifted T6.1 range even adds an all-electric version for the first time, developed by ABT.
Despite the sporty styling, the electric van only has 109 hp.
Being a van driver is no excuse for not working out.
Obviously, it’s not an official VW Group project but it’s so well executed it might as well be.
Charming and packed with clever solutions it is, but the new California is also one pricey camper.
You’ll be excused for not liking fast vans, but hey, there’s a market for them, and ABT wants a chunk of it.
The bespoke Transporter has a lot of exterior and interior updates, but their price is quite steep.
Tuning a people carrier is unusual, but this one a. looks nice, and b. sports a plush, and unique, cabin.
