Audi tuning specialist reveals its latest package for the 2014 R8.
VW and Audi tuning maestro ABT Sportsline has followed its updated GTR package unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show with an upgrade program for the 2014 Audi R8. ABT increased output of the 5.2-liter V10 from 525 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque to 600 hp and 405 lb-ft. This translates to a reduced 0-62 mph time of 3.5 seconds, down from 3.7, and a top speed of 199 mph (up from 196). Complementing the power boost are some chassis upgrades, including a lowered suspension, a set of 19-inch ER-F lightweight alloys and stainless-steel exhaust system.
The tuner also added some new styling elements to the supercar, with visible carbon fiber being used for the front skirt and grille, side skirts, and rear wing and skirt. Upon request, ABT Sportsline can also add some custom floor mats and integrated entrance lights to the R8’s interior, further customizing the German supercar to the buyers' tastes.
