For some people, even a car that already packs a walloping 420 horsepower under its hood isn’t enough to satisfy their lust for speed. These are the very same people that look at a car like the Audi R8 and think of ways to bump up the supercar’s already impressive performance output. They might think of themselves as torque hungry fellows. We think of them as heroes.

Evolution Motorsports is a US-based tuning company that specializes on these sorts of things and their latest project involves taking an Audi R8 V8 and outfitting it with their very own EVOMS R8 Twin Turbo, a performance system that taps the R8’s true potential as one of the best supercars on the planet.

Despite its stature, Evolution Motorsports believes that the R8 lacks in true raw power. So to tap into that, they meticulously designed and engineered a twin turbo conversion system that shoots up the R8’s performance output all the way up to 800 horsepower. The best part is that the 800 horsepower upgrade is only the beginning of Evolution Motorsports’ project for the Audi R8. The folks from Arizona are also building packages for the R8 that will see its pony output rise up to 900 and even 1000+ horses under the hood.

Talk about unleashing the R8’s true potential, huh?

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Its engine output is really so impressive for this vehicle even the design on the center of its front bumper is truly very cool with this. I think that’s the reason if why they consider it as an eye catcher vehicle.

Its seems that this car is close to perfection! Hell! The power output of this vehicle is around 1000 hp and that’s equivalent to the speed of Bugatti car.

Wow! This is what you call luxurious and elegant car. I was impressed with the detailing of this car as well as its speed performance. And its high technology features is just enough to make everyone drool.

Hundred Years Loan? You are joking, right? The bank can issue a long term long for about 10-25 years but not hundreds. Unfortunately, all of us cannot afford to by Audi R8. That is a reality.

My only one expression for Audi, “Superb!” We knew how expensive this one. I actually grab the chance to take some photos on the recent car show when I spotted an Audi R8.

Wow! This car definitely looks good..I mean its perfect!No wonder of this car is already sold out. BTW, I agree on you luke_franks, I want also to see how this car will perform since I wouldn’t have a chance to own onesmiley

Wow! looks so impressive I like the sporty look of the R8 and how it combines to the luxurious design. I want to know how this car will perform.

Pretty decent! I wonder if I could actually buy one and drive it daily. I think it would be epic if I’m going to have it with V10 bi turbo.

wow this is a lovely car, more aggressive than the new Nissan GT-R, I hope it can perform as it looks, I bet it sound more menacing than the previous one but cannot perform as the GT-R can.

I think they also replace their material on making the R8’s body just like what the Lamborghini did.

R8 GT is a lighter version of the R8 V10 Coupé – 100 kg to be precise – and powered by the same 5.2 liter V10 FSI engine as its older brother producing up to 560hp and 540Nm.

I personally like it but this car is only for rich people who can afford to buy it. Nice review of a nice car.

  (340) posted on 12.16.2010

i wonder if you can buy one and do the necessary conversions to make it road legal and use it as a daily car. Or order it with the V10 bi-turbo from the RS6..That would be EPIC!!

Audi Sport is making use of the opportunity offered by the GT3 regulations and will obtain FIA homologation of an evolution-version of the R8 LMS which features numerous technical improvements compared with last year’s model.

With a 1000 HP engine "fuel economy" you can feed a month an entire poor country!

R8 is cool enough without the EM changes!

  (101) posted on 12.15.2010

Not sure why the other pictures present another engine. Am I missing something?

  (39) posted on 12.15.2010

At 800 HP and the new price, it better do 2.5s to 60MPH and 8s to 120 MPH smiley
