ABT Sportsline has launched an upgrade program for the 2014 Audi R8 V10.

Output of the 5.2-liter FSI V10 engine has been increased from the standard 525 HP (386 kW) to 600 HP (441 kW), while torque has gone up from 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) to 550 Nm (405 lb-ft). As a result of the power hike, 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 3.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).

Aside from the additional horsepower, ABT has installed new suspension springs and coilovers, along with several exterior elements made from carbon fiber to lower the R8's weight. Changes include new front skirt and grille, side skirts, rear wing and rear skirt. The custom exhaust system is made from stainless steel, while standard wheels were replaced by 19-inch rims wrapped around in 235/35 R19 front and 305/30 R19 rear tires.

More details can be found in the attached press release.
