Bold Ride of the Week: ABT Audi R8 V10

Audi R8 tuning done right, courtesy of our friends over at ABT. Because we've seen all to many times- like here, and here, and holy shit here- how tuning of an Audi R8 can make a turn for the worst. But aside from a subtly gorgeous exterior, complete with custom wheels, exhaust, front and rear diffusers- underneath the hood is where is mid-engined beauty stretches its legs. The 5.2L V10 was turned up to produce 600-hp and manage a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of just about 3.5 seconds. Quicker than a standard R8, wouldn't you know.
