ABT Audi R8

The Abt R8: Sports car in perfection

There are cars and dream cars. The latter includes Lamborghini's Gallardo, Ferrari's F430 or

Porsche's 911 Turbo. These cars make your heart beat faster and show the perfected magic of

speed on the roads. Abt Sportsline's R8 will also be among these outstanding super sports

cars and is getting ready to overtake them in the prestige duel.

The design studies already show the first impressions of Abt's sportiest creation - and prove

that the Kempten-based tuner manages to perfect an excellent serial model like the R8 to

detail and accentuate its racing genes already in the drawing. The front of the Bavarian R8

shows the marked Abt face. Together with the unique and beautiful rear with its four inclined

arranged exhaust end pipes, the rear diffuser and the extravagant rear wing, the front of the

Abt R8 is part of an overall concept that brings about phenomenal roadholding. The add-on

parts of the super sports cars from the Allgäu-region improve downforce and ensure perfect

balance of the front and rear axis. This is especially notable in speed ranges reserved for

only a few cars. The sideblades which were developed especially for the Abt R8 and the Abt

side skirts give the Abt R8 a new and individual design besides aerodynamical advantages. The

aerodynamically efficient Abt body kit, which also includes carbon-fibre parts, is a real eye

catcher but also shows the state-of-the-art Bavarian precision work. With the ingenious

construction, which also includes a carbon-fibre bonnet, not only a maximum reduction in

weight is achieved but it also ensures optimized weight distribution of the Abt R8 - the pure

presence of the model athlete already shows this.

Technology and design milestones do not only come from Maranello or Sant'Agata-Bolognese but

also from Kempten. The Abt R8 will be a gorgeous dream car with the genes of a top-class race

car. This special automobile will belong to one of the fastest among the fastest; the Abt R8

will also challenge the Lamborghinis and Porsches. With regards to the anticipated

performance data the Bavarians are traditionally discreet. But this data already amazes

sports car fans and makes them want to spur the hot-blooded Bavarian horses. 530 HP (390 kW)

are to be drawn from the 4.2 litre-V8 thanks to the Abt supercharger. Compared with the

serial model which already shows impressive performance data this means an increase of 110 HP

(81 kW). The brand new Abt 20-inch BR wheels stylishly transfer this power onto the asphalt.

The all-wheel-drive dream car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and reaches

a top speed of 317 km/h. These values are synonymous with magic and this extraordinary super

sports car desperately wants to be driven. By means of the Abt suspension which is adjustable

in height, pressure and rebound, the performance and driving comfort of the super sports car

can be adapted perfectly to the requirements of its driver.

A dream car is becoming reality: In autumn the top-class sports cars will have a new

challenger as this is when the almost unrivalled fast and uniquely beautiful Abt R8 becomes

available.

New Nissan GT-R tested ON SLICK PAVEMENT 0-60 in 3.3 seconds with launch controll, 1/4 mile in 11.6 seconds. That's signifigantly faster than the Porsche 911 Turbo, and for under $70,000. put it on the proper asphalt with the perfect tires you'd be lookin at a tenth or two less.

$70g for a vehicle thats signifigantly faster than a $126k Porsche 911 Turbo (3.7 0-60) or even the $191k Porsche GT2 (3.6 0-60) Sounds like a deal to me! :) :lol:

But speaking of bikes, I'm a sucker for a nice Hyabusa ;)
