German tuner ABT Sportsline has released their program for the Audi S8. The kit named AS8 features a performance increase, new suspension and wheel set.
The 4.0 TFSI in its serial version has 520hp. The ABT engineers came up with a kit offering 20 percent higher output of 620hp. The torque level of the AS8 has been increased from 650Nm to 780Nm. To get from naught to 100km/h takes now about four seconds. In fourth gear, it needs 2.8 seconds to get from 60 to 100km/h. In fifth gear, the ABT sports limo only needs 3.5 seconds to get from 80 to 120km/h. From naught to 200km/h takes a little more than 13 seconds. The luxury ABT sports-car has an electronically limited top speed of 290km/h.
If the customer wants to optimise its handling characteristics further, they can opt for the ABT Level Control, which lowers the pneumatically suspended car’s center of gravity. The luxury sedan rides on DR and CR wheels available in either 19, 20 or 21 inch.
