We’re still a little dizzy from driving the S8 Plus what with that 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 making 596bhp and 750Nm of torque. But we’ll need to keep the Panadol at the ready because ABT Sportsline has given it a real amp up.

The tuner has managed to add 100 horsepower to the Audi, for a total of 696bhp. Torque has shot through the roof, too, and now stands at 840Nm. It’s not a surprise then that it can hit 100kph from rest in less than 3.5 seconds — bettering the stock car’s time of 3.8. Aside from tweaking the ECU and giving it a new four-tip exhaust system, ABT also lowered the car by 25mm to improve road grip and offers customers a choice of FR or DR wheels from 20in to 22in sizes.
