ABT Volkswagen R32 2008

Volkswagen Golf 3.2 V6 R32 is the fastest Golf from the Wolfsburg carmaker. However, ABT folks took the charge and have put togethere a tuner package that will boost the power output to 370 HP instead of 207 HP, reduce sprint time under 5.0 seconds instead of 6.2 seconds and will have top speed of more than 270km/h. Check it out after the jump.

The road as Golf course – for the Abt 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-Jürgen 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-Jürgen Abt. Small wonder, as the Kempten Golfer is equipped with the ABT adjustable sports suspension harmonizing perfectly with the 370 horses of the V6.
