ABT Sportsline perhaps stole a part of the show at Geneva with their R8 GT S, their take on Audi’s R8 Spyder. Featuring a beautiful chrome red exterior, ABT Sportsline clearly aimed to grab the attention of the public with the contrasting carbon fiber components and the overall sinister red-and-black theme throughout the vehicle.
The chrome red wrap is clearly the highlight of the entire project, but you can’t look past the carbon fiber body kit that truly transforms the Spyder into a memorable machine. The body kit not only gives the R8 a whole new look, but it lightens the load by swapping in a new front, rear, side skirts, rear wing, air scoops, bonnet, mirrors and windscreen frame cover – all in carbon fiber.
ABT Sportsline’s R8 Spyder boasts 620-hp, about 20% more than the stock version. On the inside, ABT also offers carbon fiber steering wheel, red carbon fiber on the center console, shift gate and door panels.
No pricing was announced.
