ABT Sportsline goes easy on the 2011 Audi A8
Renowned for its astonishing VAG automobiles conversions, ABT Sportsline, the Bavarian aftermarket expert has exclusively unveiled the details on its astonishingly elegant creation, the new ABT AS8. The extraordinary luxury ride is based upon the recently launched, new-generation premium sedan 2011 Audi A8 and offers more sophisticated yet unobtrusive sporty vision.
Hans-Juergen Abt, General Manager of ABT Sportsline, says: "With us this extraordinary vehicle doesn't lose its character, we underline it"
Embodying a true sporty gentleman on the road, the new ABT AS8 benefits from a frugal performance increase – 385 horsepower (stock 350 hp) and 880 Nm (stock 800 Nm) of peak torque – which ensures that the high-end liner can easily cope with any situation.
On the outside, ABT has fitted the AS8 premium limousine with newly-shaped front spoiler, side sills, rear aprons with tailpipe cover and three-piece rear spoiler, lending the A8 precise sporty touch and more unique character. Furthermore, a beautiful set of ABT CR alloy rims in 20- or 21-inch size wrapped with top-end tires, represent perfect additions to the ride's overall concept.
