ABT Audi R8-R
When we talk about Audi R8, I’m sure that all of you will remember “Iron Man”. A movie that used Audi R8 in its scene . Main character Tony Stark drove this car throughout the movie. The car was destroyed in a deleted scene where Rhodey crashes it into Iron Monger.
Soft NAPA leather used in its interior.
Based on the 2009 Audi R8, the ABT sportsline reworked it and thus the Audi R8-R is born. Every area of the car was addressed even going as far as wrapping the engine bay in that soft NAPA leather used in its interior panels. The full package consisting of carbon fiber aero kit, 20″ wheels, and performance upgrade.
In my opinion, the weakest point of the ABT Audi R8-R package is its wheels. It was too distracting. But, that is only my opinion. Maybe other people will say it nice.

The R8-R increased the horsepower output to 530hp @ 7200rpm, torque to 550Nm @ 7000rpm. The six-speed manual gearbox and Quattro four-wheel-drive system make vehicle weight 1560kg R8-R just 3.9 seconds 0-100km. Top Speed 311km/h.

Sitting 15mm lower than the standard car at the front and 20mm at the rear isn’t a lot, but it’s enough to give the R8 that touch more aggression on turn-in and the added sense of control you get with a car nudging back at the wheel through the bend.
Thanks to a super sticky set of Dunlop Sport Maxx XL tires and a surfeit of power, it launches down the road and through the 100km/h mark in 3.9 seconds.
