Audi RSQ8-R By ABT Helps Celebrate Tuner’s 125th Birthday With 740 HP

SUV with unique signature – Intriguing ABT RSQ8-R limited with aerodynamic group at 315 km / h

In 2021, ABT Sportsline will celebrate its 125th anniversary. To further increase the anticipation of this anniversary, there is now exactly one ABT RSQ8-R for each of these years. This strictly limited model is the ultimate expansion step of a vehicle which, with 600 hp (441 kW) and 800 Nm in the production version, has already set a Nordschleife record for SUVs. Shortly thereafter ABT Sportsline upped the ante with a performance upgrade * to deliver 700 hp (515 kW) and 880 Nm from the start. Of course, the exclusive special model can even beat that. Here, the high-tech ABT Engine Control control unit works in conjunction with a specially designed intercooler, resulting in 740 hp (544 kW) and 920 Nm. The world-leading tuner for Audi and VW vehicles offers an increase in optional top speed 315 km / h. Until recently, this tempo range was clearly seen as super sports car territory. The rare RSQ8-R also knows how to make its presence felt acoustically. This is guaranteed by the ABT stainless steel exhaust system. With its four 102mm end pipes it also makes a visual statement.

However, the ABT RSQ8-R does not only display its special status by means of striking details. The aerodynamic package is a flagship for the skills of ABT Sportsline’s design department. It includes the following individual carbon fiber elements: front apron add-ons, front lip with add-on element, mirror caps, side skirt add-ons, wheelhouse ventilation, fender extensions, rear skirt extension and rear spoiler . The literal high rollers are the 23-inch ABT High Performance HR wheels with optimized fluidity with 295/35 R23 tires.

The sporty and improved interior presents itself at the highest level. This is demonstrated, for example, by the upgrade of the ABT steering wheel, the on-off switch cap and the shift knob cover. Further elements are the revised armrest and center console as well as the refinement of the ABT seat. The door sills with the inscription “1 in 125”, the floor mats with the model’s logo as well as the special plaques, inscriptions and logos bear witness to the Bavarians’ love of detail. The ABT RSQ8-R is thus presented as a strictly limited vehicle with almost unlimited potential. For more information visit: www.abt-sportsline.com/limited-editions/abt-rsq8-r.
