THE ABT CON­CEPT STUDY

Super Street - - THE ORIGINAL 2018 ULTIMATE WHEEL & TIRE GUIDE -

Their lat­est of­fer­ings have set so­cial me­dia ablaze. But will they be avail­able to the pub­lic?

With over 120 years of his­tory, ABT has re­mained com­mit­ted to their roots as an in­no­va­tion work­shop. Of­fi­cially founded as ABT Tun­ing in 1967, they have ac­crued a rich rac­ing her­itage that started back in 1950 with an Audi. From the race­track to the street, ABT Sport­sline has con­tin­ued to de­liver on their com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence and to­day they are the largest tun­ing provider for the Volk­swa­gen and Audi Group. Since then, ABT con­tin­ues to de­velop their brand. Their lat­est of­fer­ings have set so­cial me­dia ablaze — es­pe­cially with their col­lab­o­ra­tion with famed Swedish alpine race skier Jon Ols­son. Known by many as a pro­fes­sional skier, car cul­ture knows Mr. Ols­son as the guy with the most in­tense and unique builds. From his in­sane

Lam­bos the snow, lux­ury with his roof builds land racks, yacht are vis­ually to equipped his Roll­sroyce stim­u­lat­ing for and breath­tak­ing to look at. Yet it is his most re­cent build, the new ABT RS6+ pro­ject, which he calls “Phoenix,” that has set the stage on fire. A work of art in its own right, the car fea­tures his trade­mark graphic en­sem­ble and is high­lighted by unique ABT Aero Wheels. The wheels fea­tured on his build were a con­cept study the skier saw at the Geneva Mo­tor Show and he was not pre­pared to wait, so ABT Phoenix. they has Since cre­ated pro­vided ref­er­ence its quite de­but, four as the the pro­to­types the com­mo­tion ABT wheel Aero (which to Wheel) build and it’s ABT ac­tu­ally SPORT based GR wheel. on their The ex­ist­ing stan­dard ABT SPORT GR is pre­sented in 21 inches and pic­tured here is their lat­est con­cept study, CRP cov­ers fin­ished off in vis­ual car­bon com­plete with spo­keend de­signs painted on. The ba­sic idea for the ABT Aero Wheels is in­spired by For­mula E, which, by the way, was where Ols­son and rac­ing driver Daniel Abt met. And while the aim of ABT Sport­sline is to bring a lim­ited edi­tion of these wheels into pro­duc­tion in the near fu­ture, the com­pany is cur­rently de­bat­ing whether it will be re­leased to the pub­lic. So as we ea­gerly await their fi­nal de­ci­sion, those in­ter­ested can visit them on­line for more de­tails. In the mean­time, you can start set­ting funds aside be­cause if they do de­cide to re­lease it, we’re sure they won’t last long.
