Volkswagen’s Touareg TDI SUV Gets Kitted To 500HP By ABT Sportsline

Volkswagen’s Touareg TDI has been the recipient of a substantial amount of attention lately. After all, the V8-powered SUV was already at the head of its class for looks, performance, and power. However, having the complete package sometimes isn’t enough — a rare notion that’s been proven true, yet again, by ABT Sportsline.

VW’s transcendental Touareg TDI has been taken under the company’s wing for another aftermarket tuning package that seeks to augment the vehicle’s performance-ready DNA. The original vehicle, which presents itself as a very viable 416-horsepower contender in the SUV realm, has been amplified by the company’s newly-developed ECU, allowing it to reach a staggering 500 horsepower overall. And while the TDI was already hot-off-the-line thanks to its staggering 664 lb-ft of torque, ABT’s implementation has boosted it to a healthy 715 lb-ft, giving it even more guts for those moments when depressing the accelerator might seem like the most attractive proposition. If you’re interested, head over to the company’s configurator to turn your factory-fresh Touareg TDI into something a bit more formidable.
