In the nearly two years that went by since we last talked about ABT and Volkswagen's T5, the German automaker made some updates to the van series and the tuning firm has responded with the release of a more powerful package for the diesel version.
Previously, the most potent 2.0-liter TDI developed 138hp (140PS) with ABT lifting that number to 168hp (170PS). Now, with the availability of the 177hp (180PS) diesel unit, the tuner has modified the four-cylinder engines' electronic to give it 197hp (200PS).
Naturally, all previous upgrades continue to be offered with the fastest version being the ABT-tuned 2.0-liter TSI that makes 236hp (240PS) allowing the van to sprint from standstill to 100km/h (62mph) in 9.4 seconds.
Other available parts include a subtle aero package, bigger alloy wheels and a sports exhaust system with the traditional quad pipes.
