Cartrade-ABT unleashes wicked VSR tuning packages for Volkswagen models

Published on September 5th, 2009

ATTENTION! Professional racecar drivers, hardcore car enthusiasts and those who just simply love performance and modified cars who just so happen to own, or are planning to purchase a Volkswagen, do take note!

Renowned Volkswagen and Audi tuning specialist ABT are now offering attractive performance products and packages for cars from these two German marques.


ABT-Asia LLP’s Managing Director Wolfgang Kitzeder said, “ABT is a well respected brand that exemplifies sportiness, racing specifications, and premium quality. As attested by surveys conducted by leading German automobile magazines, ABT enjoys a world-class reputation as a successful tuning brand for both Volkswagen and Audi, and ABT always delivers the highest values in customer satisfaction.”


On Malaysian soil, Cartrade-ABT – a subsidiary of the Cartrade Group – first opened its eye-catching and head-turning showroom in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, slightly more than a year ago back in May 2008. To date, the company has done quite well for itself in Malaysia, as it has sold more than 150 ABT-tuned cars and ABT kits, and Cartrade-ABT is also blatantly responsible for upgrading more than 30% of the popular Volkswagen models like the Golf GTI into envious ABT-tuned road rockets.


Recently at its showroom in Bangsar, Cartrade-ABT introduced the tempting and hard-to-resist ABT VSR GTI Mk6 and the ABT VSR Scirocco packages in the Malaysian market, continuing the brand’s global success in transforming already impressive Volkswagen models into the archetype of both speed and power.

A visibly proud Kitzeder revealed, “We are extremely proud to unveil the VSR range, ABT’s definition for our latest tuning and upgrade kits. The package includes ECU upgrades, wheels, suspension systems, performance exhaust systems, and aero packages”.


The ABT VSR package for the Golf GTI Mk6 lifts the car’s power output from an already impressive 210hp to an amazing 260hp, with 360Nm of torque at 2600rpm – 5100rpm. The package combination is set to make the ABT VSR GTI Mk6 as the new standard in Malaysia in its class, and there’s little or no argument here.


The ABT VSR package for the beautifully sleek Volkswagen Scirocco delivers 240hp, with 340Nm of torque at 2400rpm – 4800rpm. The aero package simply enhances the Scirocco’s reputation as it helps to deliver speed suited to the car’s dynamic optics, making it an impressive enough to be tagged as the ‘Next-Big-Thing’ where hot hatches are concerned on Malaysian roads.

Helmi Ilyas, Cartrade-ABT’s Director of Sales said, “ABT is the perfect pitstop for anyone wanting to harness their Volkswagen or Audi’s full potential. Our partnership with ABT is rock solid, and we hope to fully meet the demands of a new generation of Volkswagen and Audi owners who desire maximum performance capability.”


Looking ahead, Cartrade-ABT expects to achieve a higher level of success with the ABT brand in Malaysia, particularly with Volkswagen and Audi cars enjoying an increase in sales and gaining more traction in the Malaysian Automotive marketplace.
