ABT Sportsline is a Germany based tuning company which mainly tunes Audi and primary Volkswagen Group marques. It redesigns them by using sports-type suspensions, engine power upgrades, lightweight wheels, aerodynamic mechanisms and more. It has added a stylish look to your Audi GTR R8.
The new ABT R8 GTR has turned out to be a dream car which is worthy of the smooth roads. It has been modified upon company’s motorsport skills. The ABT POWERED super sports car’s V10 engine’s performance data are certainly impressive. It has 620 hp (456 kW), up from 525 hp (386 kW) as shown by Audi R8’s serial version. The ABT R8 GTR has the maximum speed of 325 km/h. The fastest R8 is a speed champion as it reaches 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds.
Such features and components could only be possible by Bavarian company’s spectacular manufacturing skills. In combination with the development in the ABT racing department, the engineers have modified the car for less weight and ideal distribution. The body kit of the car does not only suit the design of the R8 GTR but the ABT Sportsline version also weighs 100 kg less. This has been possible by its components made of high-quality, durable and extremely light carbon fiber.
All the parts including the front or rear spoiler, rear wing, hatch door or bonnet, everything is made up of carbon fiber. The exterior mirrors, door panels and rear tear off edges are made of carbon fiber. The front splitter of the car is adjustable to give it a complete professional look of the Audi R8 GTR.
Suspension and Brake System
ABT has combined all its skills together in this premium motorsport. The ceramic braking system, the height-adjustable sport-type suspension with its adjustable shock absorbers to the wheels are the signature modification of ABT. The company has installed the ER-F forged wheel where it will play a major role in weight reduction. The ER-F used here in 9 x 19 inches (front axle) and 11 x 19 inches (rear axle) are very resounding and maintains your trust on the car. There is no doubt that this sports car has high-speed and robust tires which is a perfect match for car’s top speed.
The highlight of the ABT R8 GTR is its classy interior. A black-red Alcantara adds a tasteful and assertive touch to its car. The subtle racing stripes embellish the sport bucket seats. A rollover cage and 4-point safety belts are the much-needed equipment in the car which add a extravagant look to it. The sport-type steering wheel made of Alcantara and carbon along with LED-shift indicator lights is the high point of this super vehicle. After all, the performance and its equipment make this car a fantasy car. No doubt, ABT has indeed designed the perfect sports car.
