So we told you about the ABT’s 2010 Geneva lineup including the Audi A8 and R8 Spyder, but the this one right here is a cherry on the top! It’s the R8 GTR based on the Audi R8 V10 and by any standards, it is a full on race car. It is exclusive, limited to only 25 units, posh, well look at that body! and powerful, with 620 hp.

So it has a 100 hp more than the standard R8 V10, but because it’s been on a carbon fiber diet, it’s also about 100 kilos lighter as well. That’ why ABT has equipped it with stuff like Recaro racing seats, a 4-point seat belt system, stainless steel roll-over bar with seat belt attachment, hand-held fire extinguisher and an ABT Sports steering wheel made of carbon. Actually with records like 0 to 100 Km/h in 3.2 seconds and top speed of 325 km/h, the GTR is blisteringly fast.

“The R8 GT R is an uncompromising racing car for the road, and provides maximum performance”, states Christian Abt. The successful motorsport racer indicates his responsibility for the development of this extraordinary vehicle and is impressed with the result. “I recommend trying the GT R on a racing track from time to time, as the car is great fun to drive there”, says the General Manager of ABT who is responsible for technology.

To make sure that the R8 GTR drives well at high speed, the tuner has improved the chassis by using height-adjustable ABT Sports suspension and adjustable dampers as well as ceramic brake system with modified brake covering, and also installed ABT CR 9×19 inch and 11×19 inch with Michelin sports cup tyres.

Then to make sure it stays on the ground, they’ve come up with that massive body kit with modified front and rear aprons, side skirts, new lightweight engine cover and panels, rear diffuser and a fixed big rear wing made of carbon fiber.

It also comes with ABT equipment (driver jump suit, helmet, racing shoos, gloves), Professional Onboard video system (chasecam) and Expandable data module (video- and data-overlay).
