Racing limo – ABT POWER S accelerates Audi S8 at 100 kph in 3.6 secs

Incredibly fast but providing first-class comfort: the Audi S8 tuned by ABT Sportsline is

proof of the fact that you can in fact build a super sports car that is not uncomfortable, noisy

and cramped. A luxury limo at its core, this car accelerates as fast as a Ferrari or

Lamborghini. “As always, we have timed it precisely: our S8 reaches 100 kph in 3.6 seconds.

And in contrast to the serial version, its top speed is 290 kph,” says a proud CEO

Hans-Jürgen Abt. To realise this impressive performance, the globally largest tuner of

cars produced by the Volkswagen Group has uprated the car from 520 hp / 382 kW to

675 hp / 496 kW and from 650 to 840 Nm.

This is made possible by ABT POWER S New Generation, based upon its own

ABT Engine Control including a special software. And an ABT muffler system optimises

the technical part without changing the attractive serial look. The entire performance package

has been tested on ABT’s own dynamometer and public roads, also for its stability, which is

why in Germany it comes with a 2-year warranty on the basis of the manufacturer’s

guarantee – from first delivery and up to 100,000 km.

In visual terms, the Audi S8 has been left largely untouched and cultivates high-end

understatement. But you can always order ABT’s alloy wheels. The car in the photo, for

example, is equipped with the exciting 21’’ ABT DR in “mystic black”. And the wheels are

also available in “gun metal” and in 20’’, as is the cast ABT ER-C. The latter also comes in

“silver bullet”. But all this is up to the customer, and 675 hp / 496 kW will always get the

wheels turning, anyway.
