Sure, the R8 is no lame duck, and this is even more so once the sports car has been tuned by ABTSportsline. The result is a real model athlete, which does not just ooze power, but also doesn’t have asingle gram of fat on its body. With the limited version R8 GT R (with only 25 units available)engineers and designers have gone one logical step further: experience from motorsport flowed intothe design, and all the components have been systematically trimmed to ensure a light-weightconstruction and optimal weight distribution. As a result not just the bonnet, front and rear aprons, theadjustable rear wing or the tailgate are made of carbon, but the outline edge on the rear, the externalmirrors and the door panel are also made of the same material. The side windows are made ofMakrolon - the high-tech polycarbonate does not just reduce weight, but also has impressive strengthproperties. The result: the ABT R8 GT R is a proud 100 kilos lighter than its series counterpart.

How much motorsport the team, which comprises the current winners of the DTM and the ADAC GTMasters, actually brings to the road can be seen from the details: Recaro racing seats, a 4-point seatbelt system, stainless steel roll-over bar with seat belt attachment, hand-held fire extinguisher or anABT Sports steering wheel made of carbon – the people at ABT have thought of everything. “TheR8 GT R is an uncompromising racing car for the road, and provides maximum performance”, statesChristian Abt. The successful motorsport racer indicates his responsibility for the development of thisextraordinary vehicle and is impressed with the result. “I recommend trying the GT R on a racing trackfrom time to time, as the car is great fun to drive there", says the General Manager of ABT who isresponsible for technology. The adjustable front panel allows sports inserts; the ABT driver overalls,helmet, racing shoes and gloves are just as much as part of the effective GT R special equipment asan on-board video system and the expandable data module.

The well-trained sports car has enormous performance potential: instead of the series-standard525HP (386 kW), the 5.2 FSI in the ABT R8 GT R provides a massive 620HP (456 kW) and as aresult the light car travels extremely quickly: the top speed is 325 km/h, it does 0-100 km/h in just 3.2seconds and the GT R reaches the 200km/h mark in a mere 9.9 seconds. In order to ensure that thepower can be optimally applied on the road and on the race track, height-adjustable ABT Sportssuspension and adjustable dampers are standard on the ABT R8 GT R. The ceramic brake systemwith modified brake pads has been adjusted to meet the enormous performance potential of the supersports car. The extremely light ABT CR alloys round off the package. On the front axle they aremounted in 9x18 inch and on the rear axle in 11x18 inch. The Michelin sports cup tyres are the perfectchoice for the car. The ABT R8 GT R is a unique vehicle which provides maximum driving enjoyment.It has been designed for driving at the limit: from the weight-optimised exhaust unit to the ABTTitanium special coating – ABT’s love of motorsport can be seen in every detail.
