Limited to only 25 units, the ABT R8 GT-R was a sensation. Today we want to bring it back to your attention with a presentation video. The R8 GT R features a carbon made bonnet, front and rear aprons, adjustable rear wing, tailgate, external mirrors, and door panels. ABT was able to reduce the weight of the vehicle by 100 kilos by installing windows made of Makrolon.

It develops a total of 620 HP by the use of a 5.2 FSI engine. The result is a sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, from 0 to 124 mph in 9.9 seconds and a top speed of 201 mph. The sports car also gets height-adjustable ABT Sports suspension and adjustable dampers and 19" extremely light ABT CR alloys wheels.

Driving around in this car would make me feel like a tool. Big wing + R badge? Classic "ricer" maneuver, even if the wing is effective and the R badge actually means increased performance. I’ll take a stock R8 V10, please. smiley

I agree but in terms of performance. The 911 won over the acceleration, braking and handling.

Cool design, a way more impressive than the 1000pound king Porsche 911 turbo. both car are really hammering with each other.
