So, the Audi R8 wins the 2010 World Performance Car and tuners still think they can improve the car’s look and performance. We just have to love overachievers like the ones at RENM. The Australian tuner has unveiled the Enigma tuning kit based on the Audi R8 sports car. This kit can be applied for both the V8 and V10 versions and includes high quality components, unique carbon fiber styling, and seamless integration.
For the V8 version, the tuner is offering an ECU re-calibration, carbon fiber air-intake, and a performance exhaust. The result is an output of 460 Hp and 465 NM of torque. For the V10 version, RENM is only offering an ECU re-calibration that allows the sports car to produce an output of 565 HP. As an option, RENM will also provide high-flow sports air filters and performance exhaust system which will increase the output to an amazing 600 HP.
Next to the engine upgrade, the tuner is also offering 20-inch lightweight carbon fiber/forged wheels, a carbon fiber/Alcantara steering wheel, carbon fiber interior upgrades, a carbon fiber front lip, and a rear diffuser.
