2011 Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition by STaSIS Engineering

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.

It is maybe not an awesome upgraded version but unlike you, I’m still impressed with its angst and aggressive appearance. Moreover, it looks so cool with its matte body paint and with its engine output.

Well, I don’t think that the Stasis Engineering made an awesome upgraded version for this car. BTW , the car seems faster in terms of 0-60 mph.

The v10 engine technology of the Audi R8 deliver a more powerful output! Well, I guess it would be better to less consider this vehicle.

I am a bit surprised that Stasis Engineering actually put on only a small amount of engine boost on this one. Though I really like the other features that they have here.

Good thing that they have incorporat4d all those features into the car. Those will certainly help a lot in improving the car’s run while maintaining its stability.

Nice take on the R8, they certainly went all out on this one. Just look at those parts, those are definitely some of the high end ones when it comes to aftermarket parts.

For me, I’m satisfied with the output power of this tuning package. 540 hp and 435 lb. ft of torque is quite a good figure plus it could do the 0-60 mph for 3.6 seconds!

Can we call it a major adjustment since the boost power has increased for 28% only. BTW, I would say that I’m really impressed with the production version of this car and it really perform well.

Audi R8 would be one of the most successful model in Audi I would say that I’m quite impressed with the boost engine performance of this car! I still can’t believe that 100 hp additional power is possible! BTW, the look of the car is already good no more thing to upgrade there.

It seems that STaSIS Engineering makes an awesome job here! Although, the boosting of power for aftermarket company, Still, I got interested to see in how much power they could actually give to this car.
