ABT Sportsline takes us on a tour of the ABT R8 GT-R
Abt Sportsline’s R8 GT-R was quite arguably, one of the most popular tuned-up supercars to make an appearance at the Geneva Motor Show.
Combining a significant power upgrade and a stream-lined and stylish look, the R8 GT-R, which was based on the Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI, comes with a significant engine upgrade that saw its performance levels get spiked from 525 horsepower to 620 horsepower. The bump in pony power allows the R8 GT-R to clock a 0-100 km/h (62mph) time of just 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 202 mph.
ABT Sportsline also saw to it to give their creation a minor aesthetic makeover, which includes a carbon made bonnet, front and rear aprons, adjustable rear wing, tailgate, external mirrors and door panel.
In this video, ABT Sportsline’s head honchos, Hans Jürgen Abt and Albert Deuring take us on a little walk-a-bout tour of sorts and explains the method and motivation to turning the ABT R8 GT-R from an idea to reality.
