And here’s something to go with our tastes – the gorgeous 2014 Audi R8 V10 has recently been targeted by ABT Sportsline.

The German car tuners have lifted the output of the 5.2-liter FSI V10 engine hidden under its bonnet from the stock 525 HP (386 kW) to an astonishing 600 HP (441 kW), while the torque figure has risen from 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) to 550 Nm (405 lb-ft). Thanks to these changes, this R8 sprints from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds and will on to a maximum speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).

And there’s much more alongside the higher performance. ABT Sportsline have also fitted this R8 V10 with brand new suspension springs and coilovers, plus carbon fiber exterior elements which lower its weight. They’ve installed a brand new front skirt and grille, rear wing, rear skirt and side skirts. There are also a custom exhaust system, crafted from stainless steel, and a new set of wheels encompassed by this package – 19-inch rims shod in 305/30 R19 high performance tires at the rear and 235/35 R19 ones at the front.
