A lot of manufacturers refers to motor sports when marketing sporty large-scale production cars. But one should always beware. After all, stickers and alloy wheels alone do not make for a real racer. ABT Sportsline, however, takes a more challenging approach, and visitors to the Essen Motor Show will be able to see it at Booth A155 in Hall 3.0 when checking out the RS5-R.

After having been subjected to a proper ABT tuning, the eight-cylinder car has 470 hp (346 kW), which is enough to let it reach 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. Its top speed is limited to 188 mph (303 km/h). The huge performance triggered by revving up is very, shall we say, sound-variable, because ABT has indeed mounted an amazing sidepipe, ending shortly before the rear axle on the driver's side.

"In the RS5-R, we combine our motor sport competences and the development of roadworthy vehicles in an ideal fashion," says Hans-Jürgen Abt, ABT Sportsline's CEO: "On the race track, power isn't everything. Balance and weight are equally decisive." Therefore, the ABT RS5-R not only has a very strong engine, but also a racy and light carbon body. The body parts are made of carbon-fiber material, as are the assertive front skirt with side flics, the front splitter, side skirts, rear wing, rear skirt and bonnet with its impressive air outlets. Weight-optimized super sport-type wheels round it all off. The wheels also combine a top design with sportiness: ABT uses the elegant forged ER-F in 9.5 x 20 inches with tires in size 275/30 ZR20.

The ABT RS5-R's motor sport DNA is also revealed in the interior of black and red Alcantara. Racing stripes on the sport-type bucket seats, carbon door panels, 4-point safety belts and a roll cage adorn the driver's area. The sport-type steering wheel is ergonomical and features an LED shift indicator and a carbon-Alcantara mix of materials.
