“It is really the right engine for this car,” says Hans-JÃ¼rgen Abt, CEO and founder of ABT Sportsline. “Particularly people who use their car quite a lot will really value how economical but also torquey it is,” he added.
Under the hood of Volkswagen Beetle 2.0 TDI ABT, the German firm tweaks the 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit to increase power from 138hp (140PS) and 320Nm (236 lb-ft) to 168hp (170PS) and 370Nm (273 lb-ft) and as a result, acceleration to 100km/h (62mph) drops from 9.4 seconds to 8.8 seconds. ABT then fits the Beetle 2.0 TDI with a lowered sports suspension and a larger brake kit for the front axle with black painted calipers.
