Elegance in its most impressive form

The Bavarian sports-car limo is based upon the new Audi S8, which means that its basic version is certainly no weakling either. The 4.0 TFSI in its serial version has 520 hp (382 kW). The ABT Sportsline engineers came up with an uprating of over 20 per cent, which is really quite something: the ABT POWERed ABT S8 has 640 hp or 471 kW. The ABT S8 has a very sophisticated way of showing how very powerful it is. Its torque of 780 Nm (serial version: 650 Nm) doesn’t only make him cope with many situations, it is also always on top of any situation - just as a real super sports-car should be.

The car’s acceleration is quite impressive indeed. (Don’t forget that it weighs almost 2t.) To get from naught to 100 km/h, the ABT AS8 only needs about four seconds. In fourth gear, it needs 2.8 seconds to get from 60 to 100 km/h. In fifth gear, the ABT sports limo only needs 3.5 seconds to get from 80 to 120 km/h. Equally impressive is how the Bavarian flagship gets from naught to 200 km/h, which only takes it a little more than 13 seconds. The luxury ABT sports-car has an electronically limited top speed of 290 km/h.

Better performance guaranteed

It is ABT’s family tradition to make an engine perform as well as possible. Be it an optimisation of the electronic engine management, turbo chargers or compressor retrofitting – performance increases are what we do and want to do. No wonder, then, that we are the global No. I tuner of cars produced by Audi, Volkswagen, Seat and Škoda. And given our experiences gained in racing we also know that it isn’t only about power, it is also about stability. Only the two factors combined will make driving such cars real fun - permanently.

ABT POWER for your Audi S8 – enhanced performance in perfection.

Be it a petrol-engine or a diesel-engine - modern cars require an electronic engine management. It is the brains, responsible for capturing, analysing and translating into specific commands all the pertinent data and parameters like engine temperature, air and fuel masses. This optimisation is the job of the specially developed ABT Power Software. It guarantees an ideal performance at equally ideal consumption levels and also sees to it that your engine is not driven too hard. You can rely on it and make your Audi S8 perform best. 


Engine technology sees a constant development. Thanks to high-tech electronics, cars are now getting ever more perfect. And in terms of performance, a new era has now also been ushered in by ABT Engine Control. Specially developed for the latest engine generations to optimise the optimum. The advantages are obvious: If you have two “brains”, either can focus upon what it does best. For ABT Engine Control, this means. All performance-relevant measurements and parameters are analysed, fine-tuned and translated into ABT POWER  commands in an extra control unit. And for you, this means maximum fun and even more safety. Even if there is a defect, which is highly unlikely, the fixed ABT Engine Control unit is still fully functional. 

Maximum performance, where you can rely on

A better performance in the same exhaust emission category. A better performance does not necessarily mean higher CO2 emissions. At least not with ABT. While a serial model of the latest engine generation emits 0.9 to 1.0 g/hp, using ABT Power and ABT Power S reduces this level to down to 0.7 g/hp.

So the hp-based CO2 emissions are lowered by up to 30 per cent. A better performance, but no higher CO2 emissions. And the previous exhaust emission category still applies.
