Get Even More Power and Wilder Looks with the ABT R8


Audi did a damn good job with the R8 V10 Plus. It’s fast, ferocious, and surprisingly reasonable, but what if you wanted more of the first two and less of the last? Enter ABT.

The Volkswagen Group’s biggest fans, ABT Sportsline, are at it again, tuning the R8 V10 Plus to make it even wilder. With some new aero bits festooned about the body and some careful performance mods, the tuners have managed to make something special.

With better exhausts and carbon tipped twin tailpipes, the ABT R8 makes some 630 hp. To go with the 20 extra horses, ABT also shaved off 50 lbs. Finally the tuning house stuck some specially designed coilovers onto the car to make sure that it doesn’t handle as wildly as it  looks.

And boy does it look wild. With a new front lip, skirts to go on either side, and winglets on either side of the new lip, it’s enough to impress even Andrian Newey.

Take a look in the gallery below.
