Johann Abt from Kempten, Germany founded a blacksmith’s with a famous idea: to convert carriages, so that they could even be used in the harsh Allgäu winter. Since the time of its foundation the company has continued to develop and even maintained this policy even throughout hart times.
Meanwhile in the fourth generation, Hans-Jürgen ABT and his brother, the former DTM pilot Christian Abt, are leading the company to new customisation heights. Next to professional racing involvement and product development, both brothers manage successfully the global growth of the world’s largest and most successful tuner of Volkswagen group vehicles.
Innovation and constantly growing know-how ensure that ABT Sportsline is able to set new trends.
ABT Sportsline continues to invest in its own capabilities: the best example are the highly-modern performance engine test stations, practically the most modern and unique engine test equipment in Germany, which raises engine developments to a totally new level.
