We’ve covered many of Abt’s tuned and modified cars in the past, including an R8 modified with a supercharger. The R8 shown by Abt at this year’s Essen show will not sport any power-boosting forced induction, but is a handling and appearance tuner extravaganza.

A wrap-around system of carbon-fiber skirts and blades add lightness and a high-tech look to the front, sides and rear. The functional rear wing is also made of carbon fiber. The entire kit is tuned for aerodynamics. A new wheel set is also installed, bringing a new look and massive 20×9inch front and 20×11inch rear sizing. A suspension and lowering kit from Kempten adds to the increased grip and decreases body roll even further. A big brake kit from Abt finishes off the package.

It may seem insane to tune a 420hp supercar, but when the results look this good, it’s hard to argue.
