ABT Sportsline GmbH

The company ABT Sportsline GmbH is the largest tuning company for vehicles of the VW-Group worldwide. The company was founded in 1896. The later successes in motorsport were as unpredictable at the time as the later development into the world market leader for VW vehicles in the field of auto tuning. Since the tuning of vehicles developed into a mass phenomenon in the 70s, the ATB Sportline GmbH company has also started a new era - with the vehicle models Audi 100, Audi 80, Scirocco and VW Golf. Along with the range of vehicle models, the technical challenges also grew continuously. In 1991 the company was renamed the high-tech forge ABT Sportsline GmbH. Vehicles are no longer just tuned here, but refined. For example, control units including software are developed that are precisely tailored to the engine and other components of the respective vehicle model. All tuning parts are tested by this provider in the high-end area. For example, they have to prove themselves with the “ABT R8 GTR road racing car”. When developing tuning parts, the focus is on weight optimization and weight minimization. There is more about the company
