ABT Sportsline wants to underscore the dynamic look of the Golf GTD and has equipped it, like its predecessors, with Bavarian extras: customised aerodynamic elements are just as much part of it as is a powerful and dependable uprating. 

The extensive aerodynamics package includes a front spoiler, front grille, side skirts and trunk lid attachment. Augmented by the right headlight covers and mirror covers, this all makes for an assertive look that underscores the aesthetics of the GTD. The four-pipe exhaust and rear skirt insert are also very striking indeed. 

But this diesel is not only visually powerful and energetic. Thanks to ABT Power, the compact diesel engine has about 210 hp/155 kW (serial version: 184 hp/135 kW). With about 430 Nm (serial version: 380 Nm), the GTD can be very torquey.

And with the right tires it is even made better: the dynamic VW simply needs the ER-C or DR 18 or 19-inch alloy wheels.
