The Skoda Fabia enjoys a strong following - however, at Abt Sportsline the compact car is given even more of a sporty appearance. As the world's leading customizer of brands of the Volkswagen Group, the Kempten-based enterprise developed a range of ideas for the small member of the VW family. The model which featured for the first time during the Automobil International fair in Leipzig in April 2001 was not only tuned optically with frontspoiler lip, rear wing and noble interior, but also with a power boost to 92 kW (125 hp).
With its standard 74 kW (100 hp) engine, the Skoda Fabia 1.9 TDI is extremely agile, nevertheless the Abt technicians give the compact Czech car even more sportiness. Thanks to Abt tuning, the power output of the turbo-diesel DI engine is boosted to 108 kW (125 hp).
Abt springs provide the diesel and petrol varieties of the Skoda Fabia with even better road handling. The springs lower the vehicle by around 35 to 40 millimetres. Abt are working on an individualised suspension, as well as various refinements to the body of the Skoda Fabia - for example the Abt front spoiler lip or a rear wing.
For the interior, a comprehensive package is available. A real eye-catcher is the polished silver gearshift knob with the matching Abt aluminium pedals for manual and automatic gearboxes, as well as floor mats sporting the distinctive Abt logo. The sporty look continues with Abt running boards.
For those interested in an even more luxurious interior, Abt supplies the finest leather accessories. The fine napa leather set comprises both front seats including head rests, the rear seats and the four inner door panels. Abt takes care of the assembly at the company headquarters.
Possibilities are endless with the choice of rims. Six different varieties in four sizes are available for customers to choose from. The one-piece, cast rims share one common feature: the unparalleled dynamic Abt look. Naturally, rims are available with tyres.
Abt offers steel-braided brake linings which deliver a constant and optimal braking point of pressure and require less pedal force. Abt Sportsline offers this complete package for the Skoda Fabia with a type approval. The advantages: The braking force is more sensitively controllable, the braking distance is shortened, and the system also ensures an optimal protection against stone impact and abrasion.
