The ABT R8 V10 is an extreme athlete with a lot of motor sport experience. The 5.2 FSI engine (serial 525 hp / 386 kW) has been "ABT POWERed" and now shows 600 PS / 441 kW; torque now being 550 Nm.
It only takes 3.5 seconds to go from 0 to 100 kph, and it goes without saying that a top speed of 320 kph is no problem at all. To make the super sportsman roadworthy, the uprating is complemented by ABT suspension springs that make for an adequate lowering and an even better road behaviour. For the V8 version, ABT also has coilovers.
ABT Sportsline has developed style elements for the R8 that are mostly made of clearly visible carbon. Weight reduction was as important here as was a striking appearance. Front skirt and grille make the two-seater’s front appear even more energetic.
The also specially developed side skirts underscore the car’ sporty character and at the rear end a wing and rear skirt leave the right impression. This is a successful interplay that also makes for an ideal weight reduction. This R8 has a weight-optimised exhaust system made of stainless steel. And finally it’s the sport-type wheels in 9 and 11 x 19 inches made by ABT Sportsline with tires in 235/35 and 305/30 R19.Source: Audi
