2008 ABT Golf R32
VW‘s Golf 3,2 V6 R32 is the fastest Golf offered by the Wolfsburg carmaker – and "therefore the perfect basis for ABT Sportsline", says Hans-Jurgen Abt. "The R32 is already designed as a super sports car. People who buy this Golf want an extremely fast compact car." A racing car in golf‘s clothing, suitable for every day use.
ABT has put such an extraordinary car on dynamic 19-inch BR-wheels: instead of serial 250hp (184kW) the ABT R32 now delivers enormous 370hp (272kW). This immense plus in power of 120hp is possible thanks to a modified motor management and the use of the ABT compressor kit combined with a water-cooled intercooler.
All components are tuned perfectly to the potent V6 by the Kempten engineers, and therefore offer permanently impressing driving values: for example, the ABT R32 sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 5.0 seconds, compared to 6.2 seconds for the serial R32. The top speed is more than 270km/h. Particularly impressing is how the tuned engine is getting it on: the six-cylinder engine accelerates just as smoothly as powerfully in every rpm-range. "The R32 is as much fun on the motor way as on winding country roads", explains Hans-Jurgen Abt. Small wonder, as the Kempten Golfer is equipped with the ABT adjustable sports suspension harmonizing perfectly with the 370 horses of the V6.
