ABT Gives The Audi S8 Plus More Power Than An Ferrari 488


As if the Audi S8 Plus wasn't insane enough.

When Audi released the 605-horsepower S8 Plus, we were impressed. The regular S8 was already extremely fast with 520 horses, so the Plus was a very welcomed bonus. As it turns out, Audi left a fair bit of power on the table and now ABT has decided to up the ante. The new package from ABT takes the S8 Plus up to 696 horsepower and 619 lb-ft of torque! This catapults the car to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, which is down from the stock car's "terrible" time of 3.8 seconds. But we believe that the 0-60 time will actually be a fair bit quicker.

Motor Trend tested the standard 520 horsepower S8 and recorded a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds. With almost 200 extra horses, we think the ABT car might be able to break into the 2.0 second range. ABT has also lowered the car by 25 mm and added a new four-pipe muffler system. Customers will be able to choose different wheels in 20", 21", 22" sizes. If you have always been mad that Audi never made an RS8, then the ABT S8 Plus should make you pretty happy. We guess we can call it the Audi S8 Plus Plus?
