On the outside, ABT’s R8 GT S gets a red paint finish contrasted by the use of carbon fiber parts in the middle section of the car. The front skirt, rear skirt, windscreen frame cover, red air scoops and the engine compartment are all made of carbon fiber, which is said to help reduce the car’s weight by an unspecified amount. The sports car also rides on a new set of wheels, available in 19-inch or 20-inch sizes.
The same red and black color theme is continued in the interior which also boasts numerous carbon fiber parts including the dashboard and door trims.
Under the body, a performance kit that includes a sports exhaust system lifts the 5.2-liter V10’s output from 525Hp to 620HP allowing the R8 GT S to complete the standard 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km/h (199mph). A more taut suspension system completes the package.
