We are off to a good start in 2018 with a delivery of a brand new supercharged power upgrade for the well-known Audi V8 owner. We’ve looked after this vehicle for the past 3 years with initial supply of custom forged RamSpeed wheels, R8 sports exhaust system then some cosmetic touches in a form of painted brake callipers with Audi R8 emblems imbedded in a shiny new, baked paint job and now for the final crescendo a massive horsepower upgrade on the already quick Audi R8. RamSpeed of course is not a stranger to power upgrades on the mighty 4.2l V8 Audi engine. We have previously done plenty of Audi R8 twin turbo upgrades and other exhaust and ECU remap mods, but this was out very first supercharged R8. As can be seen, the installation is incredibly neat. The entire package was colour coded to the previously painted Audi brake callipers in a bright range
RamSpeed Carbon division delivered yet another great custom set up. Two of our trusted customers wished to enhance their luxury sports car interiors with carbon. All desired interior parts have been carbon fibre laminated with UV stable 100% carbon fibre and multiple layers of clear coat for a beautiful and long lasting carbon finish. Mercedes CLK Black Series and Audi R8 custom carbon interior parts by Ramspeed.

If that in itself isn't a reason to celebrate: ABT is celebrating its 115th anniversary. In its fourth generation the Bavarian family company is focussing on continuity and tradition. This experience can be seen in the cars and products which the world’s largest tuner of vehicles from the Volkswagen group will be presenting at the Geneva Motor Show. A particular eye-catcher will certainly be the silver ABT R8 GTR – this uncompromising racer for the road is a gold medal candidate. This super sports car is extravagant, fast as well as technically and visually unique. Elegance and dynamism, everyday usability and superior driving characteristics are combined by two models which ABT Sportsline will be focusing on in particular in its anniversary year: The ABT A7 Sportback is a coupe, limousine and sports machine in one. An aggressive appearance and perfect processing right to the finest detail – in Geneva you can see the ABT’s definition
