Following the success of the Audi R8 V10 Extreme Challenge Edition, Stasis Engineering has taken over the V8 model to provide it with the same advanced tuning package. With power updates and aerodynamic modifications, this newly-tuned V8 is even faster than the standard R8 V10.
The standard V8 engine found in the Audi R8 has been given a not so silent partner in the Eaton/Magnusson TVS 1900 supercharger running 7.5 psi of boost. That extra power is sure to heat things up so Stasis made sure to install an independent charge cooler system to ensure consistent high power output. They then went into the high performance STaSIS ECU remap to get a total of 540 HP and 435 lb.ft of torque. This new output provides a 0-60 mph sprint time of 3.6 seconds, a tenth of a second faster than the standard R8 V10.
In order to handle the power increase of 28%, the Stasis Engineering also put in a new brake system, lowering springs to improve handling and overall appearance, and a new set of 20" ultra-lightweight forged aluminum wheels wrapped around high performance low profile tires.
