The Audi R8 Le Mans Race Car Has Been Transformed Into the ABT XGT

Buckle up, gearheads! The mystery behind the jaw-dropping Audi R8 that’s been causing a stir at the Nürburgring has finally been unveiled—it’s the ABT Sportsline XGT. Straight from the wizards at ABT, known for turning Audis into asphalt-chewing beasts, the XGT is their latest masterpiece. Born as the Audi R8 LMS GT2 race car, this road-legal marvel underwent a radical transformation, passing through the hoops of 40 government approvals to make it street-legal. Crash-tested, tweaked for civilian use, and clocking in at a nimble 3,086 pounds, the XGT delivers a Le Mans experience on the open road.

Under the hood roars a 640-horsepower version of the R8’s 5.2-liter V10, ensuring a symphony of power. Limited to just 99 units and priced at a cool $653,706, the XGT is a rare breed, exclusively showcased at ABT’s Mainz, Germany showroom. Unfortunately for North American speed enthusiasts, the XGT won’t be tearing up roads stateside. Nevertheless, the mere existence of 99 road-ready Audi R8 LMS GT2s is enough to make any petrolhead’s heart race faster. Welcome to the future, where Le Mans comes to you.
