ABT R8 GT S Spyder


ery few people would even consider upgrading, changing or enhancing anything about the Audi R8 GT Spyder. It is one of those iconic cars that will define the century and the Audi brand success in the history books. But as it seems ABT (company notorious for its high end tunings of the Audi model line and for it aggressive exterior modifications) has decided that the current specifications of the Spyder R8 GT are not exclusive enough and that there are some clients that would like to drink from the ABT glass of exclusivity without any concern of its monetary value.

Starting with the bright red theme and ending with a time of 3.6 seconds to accelerate from 0-100km/h (0-60 mph) the ABT creation is worth a spot in the museum of aftermarket art both in the exterior, mechanical and interior sections. Powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine (originally producing 520 hp), ABT Suspension, ABT Exhaust, ABT BR 20 inch wheels and significant weight reduction by the use of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) the R8 GT Spyder does not only look fast, but also gives definition of the phrase “fast and furious”.

The interior impresses as well with its carbon fiber sports steering wheel and the combination of black and red colors used throughout matching the exterior as well as the overall theme to perfection.

If you are on the market for the fastest and most furious R8 GT Spyder and the meaning of monetary value is unknown to you then this is absolutely the perfect choice and means to leave a very, very, very long and lasting impression.
