You shouldn’t be too surprised to hear that the Audi R8 V10 has just received a new upgrade package. After all, ever since it was launched on the market, it received lots of attention from tuners. Today’s package comes courtesy of Pfaff Tuning and Heffner Performance.
The two tuners teamed up for one of the most amazing upgrades offered for theR8 V10 . The car received a new twin-turbocharger system from Heffner that includes a pair of Garrett GT35R units running 6 psi of boost.
As a result, the 5.2 liter V-10 engine delivers a total of 725 wheel horsepower (about 850 horsepower at the crank) - quite an increase over the car’s standard 525 horsepower. We’re just wondering how these upgrades will improve the car’s performance figures. Pfaff promised that it will let us know soon.
