ABT XGT is a 640PS Audi R8 GT2 for the road

There was a right fuss kicked up a month or so ago when a rather conspicuous prototype was caught lapping the Nürburgring. From a distance it looked like Audi’s race-spec R8 LMS GT2, with its enormous wing, roof scoop and other aero addenda. On closer inspection, though, it appeared to have a number plate. The rumours of course began to swirl.

Was Audi going to out-GT3RS Porsche in a final flourish for its V10 supercar? That’s what most claimed. Well it turns out it’s real, it’s just not quite Audi. At least, according to Richter Automotive, who are calling this the ABT Sportsline XGT.
