It was only last year that PPI Razor unveiled the GTR-10, an update package based on the Audi R8 V10 version. Their package increased the total output of the Audi to an impressive 600 HP, but that accomplishment didn’t seem to be enough for the German tuner. They have now moved on to squeeze 800 HP from the R8 and not from its V10, but rather from the V8 version. Now that’s an upgrade!

In order to achieve such a monstrous update, PPI adapted the engine to get a better compression ratio and a stronger resistance of the first and second gear. That, plus an adjustment of the ECU and two R48 Bi-Centrifugal Superchargers with magnetic coupling, the V8 engine’s output has been increased from 420 HP to 801 HP with a peak torque raised to 634 lbs-ft. The air intake system has also been altered to include a special sport air filter in a Carbon Fiber air box for optimal air flow.

Getting double the amount of power out of the smaller V8 engine has undoubtedly boosted the sports car’s performance numbers. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is now made in 2.9 seconds, while top speed goes up to a super car mark of 217 mph. The beautiful sounds coming out of the engine can be heard through the PPI Dual Inlet Sport Exhaust specifically designed and optimized to work with the supercharging system in the R8.

The package also includes numerous aerodynamic updates that can be added to match up the exterior with the heart-thumping metal found under the hood. What’s not available as of yet is the price for this insane package, but we can’t imagine these modifications will come cheap.

Having the boost power is the main feature of this car. And because of that many people are attracted to this car.

The perfect super car, I love to see this car race in a race track to test its speed and handling.

Wow! This R8 800 is really oozing with angst and aggressive looks, which are so precise with its dimension. Anyway, it also looks cool with its body paint and only adds more appeal for this one.

Well, I have to admit that I was impressed with the boost power of this car! I was expecting that they will modified only the exterior of the car! Nice job PPI!

As expected from this car it has an impressive performance. The specs offered in the tuning package is great as well. And its a good thing that they have include the upgrade in the performance of the car.

420 hp to 801 hp? Well, that’s incredibly great! The performance of the original Audi R8 is already impressive but its amazing now! I just hope that it could really attain or give all the power as stated above.

Oh yes! The boost power of this aftermarket company is quite amazing! I think that’s really so high than what I expect! I bet this car would be so powerful and will give a more fun driving experience.

It has a strongest version of German tuner. The power output of this car seems to be incredible and can speed up in a higher level.

The GTR-10 has aggressive looks that enables to perform to the highest point of speed accuracy which make it a strong creation. And because of its firm density that can perform to the air intake system which has the ability to drown your air flow.

Yes, the GTR-10 was the first one that they have boosted the performance of. But I doubt that they would get greater numbers on that one even if they try to.

  (708) posted on 04.15.2011

I think they already did that with the GTR-10. Guess what, they were able to come up with only around 600 hp with that one. But they would probably go higher if they use this set of upgrades.

  (599) posted on 04.15.2011

Well, I was really surprised that they were able to pull this one off with the V8 engine. Now, I just can’t imagine how much of an engine boost they will be able to add if they use these upgrades on the V10.

Yeah, me too, I want to see this car in action. Though I already know what I am going to see, but still it would be interesting to watch this baby zoom around the track.

The tuning company, the PPI has made an amazing job. Its kind of unbelievable that they made this car upgrades its power up to 400 hp! I want to to see this car move in action!

  (780) posted on 04.13.2011

Amazing! Those eagle-eyed headlights, exterior and the matte color for the R8 makes this car really aggressive. I really love it!

  (570) posted on 04.13.2011

I wouldn’t say that this Audi is all that powerful, but all those upgrades that they have added certainly makes this one a looker. Great performance too.

  (858) posted on 04.13.2011

Yeah, those were definitely one heck of a set of upgrades. I was really surprised that they were able to boost a V8 by that much, really impressive.

  (210) posted on 04.12.2011

Wow, that one is really a whooping set of upgrades. Imagine that, they were able to get out that amount of power from a V8, that’s certainly something.
