ABT Sportsline has released their tuning program for the new Volkswagen T5 Multivan.

"The car can manage a lot of (shopping) baskets and is fast and agile despite its XXL size.", said Dirk Nowitzki, the world's famous basketball player.

The ABT T5 comes with complete aerodynamics package including a new front grille, a new front spoiler, a pair of modified side skirts and a new rear bumper.

All components are perfectly matched; rear skirt and rear spoiler form a harmonious unit in combination with the exhaust system with its two double tail pipes, typical for the ABT Sportsline premium brand.

Suspension is also revised in order to handle the additional power and to deliver more comfort in sporty driving.

The exterior is completed by a set of new 19" DR sport rims wrapped in performance low-profile tires.

There are also some performance packages for the whole range of engines: The 2.0 liter TDI with 84HP (62 kW) is boosted to 110HP (81 kW) and the 102HP (75 kW) version now delivers 130HP (96 kW). The powerful 140HP (103 kW) is boosted to 170HP (125 kW) and 400Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.

Last is the powerful 2.0 liter turbocharged TSI petrol having 240HP (176 kW) and 400Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. 0-100 km/h in 9.4 seconds, which is pretty fast for a VAN.
