ABT R8 GT S – The hot open-top sports car
Red is the colour of love – and the Spyder ABT R8 GT S is on display in an elegant, self-confident red chrome tone at the Motorshow Geneva. A contrast is provided by the middle section of the car with carbon dominating from the bonnet to the rear wing. When designing the car, the Motorsport Department of ABT Sportsline paid attention to weight reductions and the perfect distribution of weight. With its dynamic carbon inlays at the side and on the covers of engine and convertible-top the cabrio signalises that it is one of the fastest around. The front skirt, rear skirt, windscreen frame cover, red air scoops, engine bonnet or even the mirrors are not just design, they are made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CRP) and are correspondingly light. The sports car is the perfect weight to achieve highest performance.
The dream car from Bavaria now brings 620 HP (456 kW) onto the road thanks to ABT POWER. This is compared to 525 HP (386 kW) on standard models. A performance improvement of almost 20% is a statement in the super sports car class: the ABT R8 GT S sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 320 km/h. The cabrio with the 5.2 litre V10 engine is fully compatible for everyday use and is real fun for cruising on country roads. After all the “hot open-top sports car” is open to anything. And thanks to the ABT Suspension the setup is optimal at all times. The Sports exhaust system provides good acoustics and is an important part of the design concept, it harmonises with the diffuser, rear wing and trapeze-shaped rear skirt. The car is not just extremely quick, but also looks like it is. It makes hearts skip a beat, especially when the light metal alloy ABT BR in 20 or the CR Superlight in 19 inch announce the car’s inherent power even when stationary.
With the ABT R8 GT S the love of detail continues in the interior: ABT Sportsline has “dressed” the sports steering wheel, the centre console, the shifting gate and parts of the door panels in red carbon. As a contrast the remaining parts of the doors and the dashboard were covered with new leather. The texture of the material is expressive and elegant. The red and black leather of the seats perfectly harmonises with this styling. Red safety belts and illuminated door sill panels round off the powerful appearance of the ABT R8 GT S.
Built to be outstandingly quick – The new ABT A6
6 is a powerful number: If you throw a six in Ludo, you reach the goal quicker, and the same also applies if you drive an ABT A6. Power and comfort make the premium car a perfect everyday companion. Long journeys can be managed with ease, but the fun already begins on short trips. Regardless of whether you choose a petrol or diesel engine, the A6 becomes a veritable sports car with a performance improvement from ABT Sportsline. In the developments for the new model from the successful A6 range, the world’s largest tuner of vehicles from the VW group also ensures that the character of noble superiority is not just retained, but is accentuated even further. Thanks to ABT POWER, the 3.0 TDI offers a high-torque and cultivated 282 HP (207 kW) instead of the series standard 245 HP (180 kW). An ABT Turbocharger is additionally used in the ABT POWER S package, giving the diesel 310 HP (228 kW). 610 Nm torque ensure that the A6 can “cope playfully” with any situation. The professionals are currently working full out to develop a performance improvement for the 3.0 TFSI: The petrol engine will then bring a powerful 410 HP or 302 kW onto the road (series standard: 300 HP / 221 kW).
Visually it is also clear exactly where the new ABT A6 comes from: From the back it confidently shows its rear skirt with the typical four tailpipe look of ABT Sportsline. The rear spoiler adds to the elegant appearance of the car and gives it an even sportier look. The side skirts and front spoiler underline the other “sweet sides” of the successful Ingolstadt design. “For us the A6 is an extravagant, straight-forward car, which doesn’t show off yet also doesn’t hide away,” states Hans-Jürgen Abt. For the General Manager of the traditional company which recently celebrated its 115 year anniversary, the A6, which has been further developed specifically to reduce its weight, is a great success: “It is just the prefect choice for our demanding customers.”
The appearance of the new A6 can be rounded off perfectly with the alloy creations from ABT Sportsline: The designer light alloy wheels are available in 19 to 21 inch and, of course, in combination with fitting high-speed tyres. Which wheel you choose in the end is of course a matter of taste, but all the models suit the classy-dynamic appearance of the ABT A6 harmonically. One thing remains unchanged: Throwing a 6 may make you happy in the short-term, but the ABT A6 gives you lasting enjoyment.
