As with the closed R8 versions from ABT, the team has designed all the components in order to achieve the sports car’s optimum distribution of weight; all the parts are therefore made from carbon. The ABT R8 Spyder has redefined the word “roadster” with Bavarian thoroughness.
Powered by the V10 engine with 5.2 litre cubic capacity, this provides the ABT R8 Spyder 600 well-trained horses (441 kW), while in the series version there are 525HP (386 kW). The Spyder is able to sprint from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds and achieves a top speed of 320 km/h.
In detail, ABT engine technology presents a 5.2 FSI Engine with 5204 ccm capacity. This results in a performance of 600 HP/441 kW (standard: 525 HP/386 kW). The ABT aerodynamics covers the ABT front grill, ABT front skirt, ABT side skirts, and ABT rear skirt with exhaust covers. Alongside, ABT also presents the suspension springs and ABT wheel technology consisting of the ABT BR in 20 inches bi-colored painted and ABT CR in 19 inches.
