The German tuner house ABT Sportsline has created a new performance and aerodynamic kit for the Audi R8 V10. The kit is dubbed GTR and will be unveiled next month at the Geneva Motor Show.
This time the German tuner has focused on the engine performance. As you know, the V10 5.2 liter TFSI unit is developing 550 HP (404 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) in the Plus version, but thanks to the job done by the guys from ABT, the engine now produces 620 HP (456 kW) and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque.
In case you didn’t know, in stock, the V10 R8 can sprint from stand still to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, while the ABT version can do it in 3.2 seconds. The new top speed is clocked at 202 mph (325 km/h) while the standard version can hit 193 mph (311 km/h).
On the outside, the German tuner comes with a new hood, new front and rear apron, special rear wing and an adjustable front splitter. Thanks to these changes the ABT V10 R8 GTR now weights 1.515 kilos, which means its 110 kg lighter than the base model.Source: ABT Sportsline
