The German studio has prepared a tuning package for a large flagship sedan.

Let’s remind, firm ABT Sportsline specializes on completions of models of mark Audi, to a lesser extent Volkswagen and Skoda. The company develops for them power upgrades, body kits, suspension suspension kits and exclusive wheel sets. The last “victim” of specialists at the studio was A8.

Exterior luxury four-door sedan remained untouched. In this case, the company ABT decided to keep the sports-solid look of the Audi A8, adding only one touch, which, however, the appearance of the car is significantly transformed. This is a set of 22-inch 10-spoke wheels ABT Sport GR with a combined matte black and polished silver finish.

The main “magic” occurred in the engine compartment of the car, where the ABT Engine Control module was integrated to increase the efficiency. If the stock version of the three-liter diesel turbo six produces 286 hp and 600 Nm of torque, then after the chip-tuning the output rises to 330 hp. and 650 Nm of torque.

The ABT does not disclose how the dynamic characteristics of the tuned Audi A8 change and do not call the cost of the package. Note that the stock version with a 286-horsepower diesel engine, combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, accelerates to the first 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and to a limited electronically maximum speed of 250 km / h.

By the way, the case of the Audi A8 in the European market is not the best way. With this model, the manufacturer is seriously inferior to competitors. The sales capacity of the car in 2016 was 5,372 pieces, and in 2017 – 5,887 units. For comparison, in the BMW 7 Series, these figures are 13,320 and 11,533 vehicles, while the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has 14,967 and 14,757 units, respectively.
