    This model is not available in the UK. The W12 engine has been out in Germany for 6 years.

    Abt have modified the engine and it is quite a bit more powerful than a standard W12.

    Excellent!!

    So how much power does it have, versus the standard car. I have to admit my ignorance to the specs of this model.

    Apparently it has 580BHP according to the garage who service it.

    I think the standard has 420BHP.

    Stop the press, according to Abt themselves they did four of these cars and not all of them are long wheel base like mine so it would appear I can claim you can count the number of these models in existence is max three.

    I only bought it off the internet, not looking for anything specific....

    I do not have any but I will get on the case. By the way I went pretty damned fast in it the other day just to see how it handled.

    I nearly had to put two hands on the wheel. It must need a service!!!
