Green light for Golf VIII programme

With the Golf VIII, Volkswagen promises an entirely new digital experience – but the new model also scores with its classic virtues. The handling and driving experience are first-class and the direct steering in particular lends a sporty feel. Now, we present the first matching tuning products. Ever since the first options for the Golf 1 during the 1970s, we have accompanied every generation of Golf with a comprehensive programme. Both then and now, lowering is essential to create a sporty appearance. ABT suspension springs reduce the chassis clearance of the Golf VIII all round by between 25 and 30 mm, depending upon engine and specification. By doing this, not only is the handling improved, but the Golf also takes on a significantly more sporty appearance. The set is also suitable for cars with adaptive chassis control (DCC).

Lowering also creates the perfect opportunity to showcase the range of ABT alloy wheels. As such, the first three available designs come into their own in the wheel arches. The silver ABT ER-C is available in 18 or 19-inch sizes with tyre options of 225/40 R18 or 225/35 R19. The elegant designed FR-C rim features an impressive, diamond-machined wheel body in mystic black. The distinctive wheel for the Golf VIII is available in 20-inch exclusively and with the option of 235/30 R20 tyres. The same sizes apply to the especially dynamic ABT Sport GR with its diamond-machined, matt black finish.

In addition to the lowering and the sports rims, we also offer something for the engine of the Golf. Due to the performance increase developed by our engineers, the power offered by the 1.5 liter TSI increases from 150 hp (110 kW) and 250 Nm to 190 hp (140kW) and 290 Nm.

Fresh from the “Driving Range” - the perfect swing for Golf VIII GTI, GTI Clubsport and GTD

The 8th generation of the Golf is offered as standard in a wide range of sporty models, way beyond the regular Gran Turismo Injection. Alongside the GTI (245 HP / 180 kW / 370 Nm) and the GTI Clubsport (300 HP / 221 kW / 400 Nm), the GTD (200 HP / 147 kW / 400 Nm) is available for diesel fans.
However, many drivers still want more power. No problem. We offer a wide range of performance upgrades for the top models of the Golf family. The basis for each of these is the high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC).

The Golf GTI is boosted to unleash 290 HP (213 kW) and delivers a maximum torque of 410 Nm. The GTD delivers 440 Nm and 230 HP (169 kW). However, even the series GTI Clubsport has a few more horses under the hood than a performance-upgraded normal GTI. For this model, we offer the option of 360 HP (265 kW), with a maximum torque of 450 Nm.

The Golf VIII R - the ultimate compact sports car

The sportiest Golf VIII is the Golf VIII R. The 2.0 TSI delivers as standard 320 HP (235 kW) und 420 Nm. With a performance upgrade to 384 HP (282 kW) and 470 Nm, this car will certainly put a smile on your face.

Regardless of the selected platform, we offer three attractive rim designs for the Golf GTI, GTD, GTI Clubsport and R. For example, the 19-inch ER-C in matt black. If you want to pull out all the stops with a 20-inch rim, choose the ABT FR in mystic black or Sport GR in glossy or matt black.
