There is no doubt about it, the Audi R8 is one of the best cars on the market today. The extroverted styling possesses the essence of class yet is suggestive of the fact that this is no ordinary Audi. It truly looks like a car designed with the passion of a Lamborghini, but with the seriousness and elegance of a German manufactured vehicle. Powered by a V10, this beast of a machine will reach 100km/h in an astonishing 3.9 seconds. In that short span of time, your ears will be thoroughly pleasured by the cacophony of harmonies being spat out the sports exhausts. When it is finally time to slow down before the bend, the all-wheel drive system of the the Audi R8 will allow you to take the corner with superb precision, in fact it seems like it takes corners as if they weren’t even there to begin with. What a car!
Now you might wonder what more you could want in such a fantastic car. Well, the answer comes in the form of ABT’s Engine Control Unit. Essentially, this enhancement is a ‘smarter brain’ for your R8, and as a result, you experience a drastic increase in power, 75 bHP to be exact, thus bringing the bHP capacity up to a whopping 600 bHP. Torque also benefits and the figure goes up by 20 Nm. All of this equates to a quicker 0-100 time, and despite the increase in performance, your car’s emissions will be better for the environment. They’ve thought of everything, with enough oomph to please the petrol-heads out there as well as emission reduction to please the tree-huggers! The video below is pretty epic, so I suggest you give it a watch! (The video shows the higher spec Engine Control Unit).
