German tuner Abt has revealed the XGT, a road-going version of the Audi R8 DTM racer, as the "most exclusive car that has ever left [its] factory".
Limited to a production run of 99 units, the XGT was spotted earlier in the year during dynamic testing at the Nürburgring - a process in which it covered "thousands of test kilometres".
It was designed to be as close as possible to a road-going version of the R8 GT2 racer that competed in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) and retains its “race-track feel”.
Abt worked on the project with Scherer Sport, a sub-brand of the Scherer Group, which sells race-ready Audis for competitive use.
Its unveiling follows a "two-year, extremely complex" development process that went "beyond the scope of conventional vehicle development".
Power comes from the same 5.2-litre V10 engine as in the R8 GT, but it has been given a 20bhp boost to 640bhp, which, together with a 170kg weight drop to 1400kg, gives a top speed of 200mph and no doubt a sub-3.4sec 0-62mph time.
Company boss Hans-Jürgen Abt said: "It was the challenge itself that spurred us on to develop this unique complete vehicle. The XGT is the quintessence of our heritage.”
DTM drivers Kelvin van der Linde and Ricardo Feller have test driven the XGT and said its "road handling, steering behaviour and acceleration cannot be compared with any road car”.
