ABT Audi A8 and Audi R8 GTR

Saturday, March 6th, 2010:

Audi R8

ABT Sportsline released a new line of styling kits this past week, the two we have here are for the Audi A8 and Audi R8 GTR cars. Starting with the new GTR-version for the Audi R8, the V10 supercar received a lot of lightweight aerodynamic parts to enhance its appearance. With a new front bonnet, front and rear aprons, and carbon fiber adjustable rear wing, the aggressive R8 GTR looks like it could take on the notorious Nissan GTR. The windows were even replaced with Makrolon pieces, a super strong, lightweight material that is better than the factory parts. ABT’s tuning firm swapped the original door panels with carbon fiber ones, and all these feather-like additions made the Audi R8 GTR 100 kg lighter than the stock model.

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009:


Recently Sportec upgraded the Audi TT-RS to 400 hp, but now ABT has released their latest car tuning kit for the Audi on the German market. The brand new Audi TT-RS from the factory comes with 340 hp which isn’t bad, however ABT decided it was not enough for the convertible. They were able to increase the horsepower by 80, for a total of 420 hp, which is the same horsepower number for a stock Audi R8. This is a great figure for some simple engine tuning, and the track numbers are just as impressive. At the track, the customized Audi TT-RS was able to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, with a top speed limited to 282 km/h. That is only the Stage 1 kit installed by the tuning experts, now imagine what a Stage 2 or Stage 3 could do for the new Audi.

For more than 30 years Volkswagen Golf was Germany’s favorite car and the new Golf VI was appreciated a lot.
