By Benjamin Hudson
What separates cars from dream cars? The former basically includes cars that may be considered as necessity; you know ordinary transport that takes you from point A to point B and then back again. Dream cars however, are another story since they include the array of supercars that makes your heart flutter and transforms the road into a stage for you to show off.
The Abt Sportsline's R8 is another addition to the selection of dream cars and is preparing to get ready to overtake the other sportscar in the battle for prestige. The design studies conducted by Abt for the Audi R8 has lead to the creation of one of the sportiest sports car that Audi--luxury unit of Volkswagen and recipient of quality VW vent visors-- has ever had--the Abt Audi R8.
Abt a Kempten-based tuner has been able to perfect an excellent serial model like the R8 down to its littlest details and at the same time be able to accentuate the R8' s racing genes. The front of the Bavarian R8 displays the signature Abt face.
The front of the Abt R8 is basically a part of an overall concept that brings about phenomenal roadholding. Its unique and beautiful rear with its four inclined arranged exhaust end pipes, together with the rear diffuser and extravagant rear wing gives the front of the Abt R8 with a look that is both classy and compelling.
The add-on parts equipped on the super sports car from Allgau-region enhance downforce and create a perfect balance of the front and rear axis. Such add-ons are especially reserved for only a few cars. The sideblades and the side skirts were especially created for the Abt R8 to enhance its aerodynamics.
The aerodynamically efficient Abt body kit also includes carbon-fiber parts that has not only enhance the looks of the Abt R8 but also display the state-of-the-art Bavarian precision work. The R8 will also sport a carbon-fiber bonnet that does not only reduce weight but also optimized weight distribution of the Abt R8.
Design and technology innovations do not only come from Maranello or Sant' Agata Bolognese but also from Kempten. The Abt R8 is going to be one striking dream car with genes derived from a top-class race car. This car is expected to challenge the likes of Lamborghinis and Porsches. And with regards to the anticipated performance data the Bavarians are traditionally discreet. But these initial data already amazes sports car fans and makes them want to drive Bavarian horses.
The Abt Audi R8 revs up 530 hp (390 kW) drawn from the 4.2 liter V8 Abt supercharger engine and comparing it with the serial model which already shows impressive performance data it means that the Abt R8 has a significant power increase of 110 hp or 81 kW. The brand new Abt R8 20-inch BR wheels are stylish and complement the R8 on the road.
The all-wheel-drive dream car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in a matter of 3.9 seconds and reaches top speed of 317 km/h. Such values reflect an extraordinary super sports car that is waiting to be driven. The Abt suspension equipped on the Abt Audi R8 is adjustable in height, pressure and rebound. This suspension increases the performance and driving comfort of the super sports car and can be adapted to the requirements of its driver. The Abt Audi R8 dream car is turning into reality this coming autumn.
