You Ask, ABT Delivers: VW Arteon Is Now 25 Percent More Powerful

ABT Sportsline has released what is likely to be the first power upgrade for the new Volkswagen Arteon.

Applied to the car presented by the tuner a few weeks back, it's targeted at the 2.0-liter gasoline engine, rated at 280PS (276hp) and 350Nm (258lb-ft) of torque in stock form.

The unit welcomes an AEC (ABT Engine Control) unit, which raises output to 350PS (345hp) and 420Nm (310lb-ft) of torque. This helps the Arteon differentiate from its more conservative sibling, the Volkswagen Passat, on a performance level, but don't search for any acceleration numbers, though, because the tuner has yet to provide them.

Making sure that the four-door coupe looks instantly noticeable are a few visual upgrades, which were detailed when ABT released initial details in late September. These are joined by a sports suspension, and a number of available alloy wheel sets. These include the ABT Sport ER-C 19-inch, wrapped in 245/40 high-performance winter tires, along with rims from the DR, FR, and GR series, 19-, 20-, and 21-inch in size.
