AS5, AS4 & R8 - Abt Concepts

Bound To Woo Audi Owners

Dec 1, 2007

Abt Concepts
Unveiled at the '07 Essen Motor Show, Abt has developed three concepts bound to woo Audi owners. First is the AS5 built on the new S5. The coupe features two-tone paint with Abt aerodynamics. The kit includes front and rear valances, fender inserts and a rear spoiler. The car also features Abt's new 20" BR wheel. Further tuning is done to the 3.0 TDI motor, with 300hp and 443 ft-lb of torque available. The AS5 accelerates from 0-62mph in 5.3sec and has a top speed 164mph. For braking, Abt designed 380mm front brakes.

The second concept is the AS4, based on the'08 B8 A4. It features similar body parts, including the valances, skirts, rear spoiler and fender inserts. They've also developed a tuning program to increase the power from virtually every European models, including the 1.8TFSI and diesel-powered 2.0TDI, 2.7TDI and 3.0TDI. Lowering springs, big brakes and wheels were also fitted to the concept car.

Finally, the Abt R8 is the headline grabber. You might have thought an R8 couldn't get any better, but Abt has added a carbon rear valance, side blades and skirts. There's also a front valance and rear wing to create a harmonious flow. The Abt R8 is equipped with 20x9" front and 20x11" rear wheels. Lowering springs and big brakes are the final touch.
