One of them - Abt Sportsline - presented the Abt Touareg VS8-R at the last Frankfurt Motor Show. Today it is one of the most powerful versions of a fashionable SUV.
The letter R in the name of the Abt Sportsline tuning car traditionally means Racing, that is, "race." In this case, it is synonymous with a maximum power of 470 hp. and peak torque of 550 N.m. The increase in power alone was 160 hp. The Bavarians achieved such indicators by installing a mechanical supercharger. Now acceleration to 100 km / h in a large SUV takes only 5.9 seconds, the maximum speed is limited to 260 km / h.
Best in technology. Such a title could be awarded to the Abt Touareg VS8-R. Suspension studio specialists did a great job implementing the Abt Level Control (ALC) system - it allows you to adjust the stroke (within 40 mm) and the air suspension stiffness, adapting it to the road and speed. They also put their hands on the brake system: discs with a diameter of 396 mm were placed on the front axle and 380 mm on the rear axle.
