Abt AS8 Based on New Audi A8 Program Revealed for Geneva

Abt Sportsline has unveiled a modified Audi A8 at the Geneva Motor Show.

Dubbed the AS8, the car features a new front spoiler, aggressive side skirts, a revised rear apron, and stylish 20-inch wheels (21-inchers are also available).

In terms of performance, Abt tweaked the 4.2-liter TDI engine to produce 385 PS (283 kW / 380 hp) and 880 Nm (649 lb-ft) of torque. This represents a modest increase of 35 PS (26 kW) and 80 Nm (59 lb-ft), compared to the standard car.

According to Abt, the "AS8 has been optimized to meet the high demands of its drivers: ABT Sportsline has not changed the elegant glider into a racing car, but carefully into a confident and sporty automobile."
