Abt Audi R8 V-10 pumps out 600hp

ABT Audi V10 fq

Aftermarket tuners Abt have got stuck into the Audi R8 V-10 and the results are unsurprisingly dramatic.

The German tuning and motorsports company has added another 75 horsepower to the already gutsy R8 V-10. Abt has also thrown as much carbon fibre as possible into the mean machine.

These factors add to the base vehicle’s appeal, but the new body kit definitely pushes the look of the R8 further into the Lamborghini-flashy territory.

So, what does she do?  Acceleration from 0-100 kph will take a mere 3.8 seconds, and it tops out at 320 kph even and packs 600 horsepower at the crank. Best of all, the engine’s power curve was designed to make that 600 horsepower accessible under normal driving conditions.

Other additions included in the Abt package are a custom rear wing and a four-pipe exhaust system.
