ABT Sportsline Press Release
ABT Sportsline has got a new home. Right in time before the start of the season, the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group has opened its new, state-of-the-art motorsport center next to its headquarter in Kempten, Bavaria. On 2,400 sq m, a staff of about 50 will now prepare the four Audi RS5 DTM’s for the DTM and develop the FIA Formula E activities.
“Motorsport is our great passion and has been a pillar of our company for decades”, says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. “With the new complex, we have created the right conditions for our future work. Our team feels good there, enjoys ideal working conditions and has a lot of space to be creative.“
Inside, on 2,400 sq m the staff finds a little motorsport paradise: lavish work areas, modern offices, carbon and transmission workshops, a washing shed, modern equipment, a spacious warehouse and a gym. The truck shed next door can house five trailers, which now can be loaded and unloaded in whatever weather conditions may obtain outside. Even the daily DTM pit stop exercises can be done inside.
