Abt Gives the R8 V10 600 HP
The Audi R8 V10 hasn’t reached US shores yet, but it’s been in Europe for some time now. This has given tuning companies such as Abt plenty of time to make the already insanely powerful 525 hp, 5.2-liter V10 even better.
Abt took the R8 V10 and added 75 hp for a total of 600 asphalt-blazing ponies by remapping the ECU and adding a new 4-pipe exhaust system. The extra oomph helps the Abt R8 get from 0 to 62 mph in only 3.8 seconds and lets the supercar join the 200 mph club with a top speed of exactly 200 mph.
Not only that, but it looks badass too. Abt replaced much of the R8′s gorgeous body with their own carbon fiber aerodynamic bits to lighten it up and increase downforce. The result is one mean looking R8; especially with those red accents you see here.
Lastly, Abt replaced the R8 V10′s wheels with their own 20-inch monsters, which are some of the best looking wheels I’ve seen on any car.
The stock Audi R8 V10 could compete just fine on its own, but with the additions from Abt Sportsline, this thing is a whole different beast. 600 horsepower is nothing to laugh at, and the carbon fiber bodywork looks nothing short of exceptional. Good job on this one, Abt.
