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.

ABT Audi AS5 (2008)

ABT Audi AS5
The new Audi A5 combines a sporty and an unobtrusive design to a powerful, elegant and individual appearance. "A uniquely beautiful car and thus a real challenge for us," says Hans-Jürgen Abt. The managing director of Abt Sportsline raved about the new Coupe from Ingolstadt, but he emphasizes that "our designers and engineers were able to improve the outstanding base model even more". The character of the noble sportscar still maintains but after getting a special treatment in the Allgaeu it appears more dynamical. The body kit, especially tailor-made for the Abt AS5, is a spectacular package: a front skirt with a grid element which emphasizes the singel-frame grill and the fog lights, the slightly curved, laterally mounted body parts and the sleek gill-shaped air-inlets, as well as the well-proportioned rear. With the unobtrusive but striking rear spoiler and the rear skirt inset in diffuser optics, the design of the Abt AS5 is gracefully rounded off. The 4-pipe rear muffler is perfectly fitting and additionally recontoures the rear view. Needless to say that the car sounds as a real Abt car should.

Even when standing still, the Abt AS5 is a sensual car, which eagerly wants to be driven. And when it is allowed to go on the road, it shows how much sports spirit it has. First of all, the 3.0 TDI engine gets a significant "power treatment". The extremely powerful, self-igniting engine perfectly fits to the A5 and, in addition, offers moderate consumption values. By means of improved motor management, Abt turns the serial 240 hp (176 kW) into powerful 272 hp (200 kW). With an extra Abt turbo charger, the power even increases to 300 well feeded horses. Diesel and sportiness belong together since long. Certainly, Abt Sportsline will successively modify later developed A5 engines.

To ensure a perfect handling of the noble power package, Abt also makes use of its adjustable sports suspension, besides the serial Quattro engine. All the more, the Abt AS5 will be brought to a standstill by means of the Abt brake system with a disc diameter of 380 millimeters.

To perfectly round off the successful optics package, Abt Sportsline recommends the AR wheel, which is available for the A5 in the sizes from 18 to 20 inch, of course together with appropriate sport tyres. Wheels, body components and technical modifications build a whole unit: a wonderful Coupe at its best. Not more and not less.
