ABT Sportsline presents tuned Audi R8 Spyder at Geneva 2010
At Geneva Motor Show, ABT Sportsline has unleashed officially its remarkably sleek open-top supercar ABT R8 Spyder. Based on the recently released Audi R8 Spyder, the refined newcomer is far from the words "just another cabrio", it strikes with uncompromising styling, top-end materials, matchless comfort and incredible performance.
The vehicle's exterior design is distinguished by newly developed lightweight carbon elements: front grill, front apron, side sills and rear apron with rear spoiler. Another highlight found on the new roadster's exterior is the huge dual-tone coated ABT BR alloy wheels.
In the terms of power boosting, the ABT R8's V10 powerplant with 5.2-liter cubic capacity now produces 600 horsepower (441 kW) instead of the 525 horsepower (386 kW) available on the series counterpart. With these upgraded values, the tuned Spyder sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds and achieves a Vmax of 320 km/h. The roadster is therefore a hurricane for the road, giving lovers of fresh-air driving a new "tangible" term. Suspension springs from ABT provide even better handling, which in particular has a positive effect in the threshold regions of the Spyder. In addition the lower centre of gravity gives the mid-engine sports car an even more aggressive appearance.
