ABT Sportsline is the largest tuning provider for vehicles from the Volkswagen and Audi Group, also being known worldwide for its participation in numerous motorsports activities for the brand with the four rings. With over 125 years of history, ABT started with Johann Abt, a blacksmith who founded an innovation workshop in 1896 where new ideas were literally forged, inventing a carriage which could also be used as a sleigh in the harsh, snowy winters – a true hybrid. Since then, the family-run company has continuously developed further.
When Johann Abt, the founder’s grandson, completed his first car race in 1950 and laid the cornerstone for ABT’s motorsports activities, and then founded ABT Tuning in 1967. He tuned the first VW Golf in 1978 and already launched the first chip tuning product in 1980. After that, things moved very quickly. In 1991, the new prestigious company headquarters were established on what is now the “Johann-Abt-Street”. In 2014, an impressive motorsports centre was added which also includes its own museum.
ABT has now established itself in the industry as the leading tuning provider for VAG vehicles, bringing enthusiasts’ dreams to life through its premium refinement range of top-quality performance and aesthetic enhancements.
