ABT R8 GT R limited to 25 units – packs 620 horsepower

by Ionut Dragomir

Based on the already exclusive Audi R8 V10, the ABT R8 GT R is limited to just 25 units and 100 kilos lighter than its series counterpart.

Body parts such as the bonnet, front and rear aprons, the adjustable rear wing, tailgate, mirrors and door panels are all made of carbon fiber to bring the weight down.

Inside you’ll find lightweight Recaro racing seats, a 4-point seat belt system, stainless steel roll-over bar with seat belt attachment, hand-held fire extinguisher or an ABT Sports steering wheel made of carbon.

“The R8 GT R is an uncompromising racing car for the road, and provides maximum performance”, states Christian Abt.

Power on the 5.2 FSI V10 has been increased from 525 hp to 620 hp, taking it from 0-100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds all the way to 325 km/h.

The ABT R8 GT R rides on extremely light 19-inch ABT CR alloys wrapped in Michelin sports cup tires.
