What you see is the Audi R8 GTR Police Car which specially designed by ABT to support their Tune It! Safe! campaign. The idea why ABT proposes the campaign is to show that tuning vehicle is not only focusing the cosmetic parts, but also still think about the safety as well. This happens because ABT and the rest of tuning houses and aftermarket specialists know that some tuned vehicles are ignoring the safety standard features because the cosmetic upgrades are the main focus.
ABT drastically transformed the ordinary R8 GTR into one menacing Police Car which to us, it is like the real life version of the police car on the Need For Speed game console. The Audi R8 GTR Police Car by ABT was officially introduced during the Essen Motor Show. ABT not only tuning in the cosmetic parts, so it means that the R8 GTR Police Car still carries the same old engine with a bit of additional power output.
The Audi R8 GTR Police Car by ABT is based on the 2010 model platform. The powerplant is 5.2L V10 and with a bit of magical dust from ABT, this sportscar now has total power output around 620 ponies with 550Nm of torque. Taking this sportscar for a sprint and its easily hit 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.2 second with top speed at 202 mph (325 km/h).
