The latest evolution into model T6.1 has made the VW Bulli even more desirable. No other large van evokes such an emotional response as the legendary Volkswagen that can be driven almost as casually as a car and is at least as cool as a trendy SUV. The ABT’s newprogramme for the T6.1 follows on seamlessly from the sales success of the T5 and T6 components. It all starts, of course, with the ABT Power performance upgrades that provide even greater driving pleasure due to the standard electromechanical steering of the latest Bulli.
The power boost based on the specially adapted high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC) is now available for the mid-range 2.0 TDI. This provides an increase from 150 hp (110 kW) and 340 Nm to 180 hp (132 kW) and an impressive 400 Nm. A performance upgrade for the top model with a standard 199 hp (146 kW) is currently under development. From the start of March 2020, amazing 226 hp (166 kW) and 490 Nm instead of 450 Nm will be available. The perfect partner to the newly gained additional power is the BILSTEIN Height Adjustable Suspension Kit from ABT Sportsline. This option was a popular order for the previous models and lends the bulky VW T6.1 an unexpected light-footedness and precision. The body can be lowered according to your personal set-up and aesthetic preferences between 40 and 70 mm. ABT suspension springs are under development and will be available in a few weeks.
With its narrower headlamps and large grille, the new VW bus exudes even more premium character than its predecessors. Attractive ABT Alloy Wheels add extra sports appeal. Here, customers can choose between the ABT DR in 8.5 x 19 inches – mystic black – or the ABT GR in 9.0 x 20 inches. The latter can be ordered either in matt black with diamond machined finish or glossy black with diamond machined rim flange. You want more?
