We’ve seen plenty of tuning programs done on the Audi R8 V10 super car. Today, we add another one to that collection.

This program comes courtesy of German motors sports service provider, Racing One, who gave the German supercar a whole lot of new race-ready modifications, highlighted, of course, by a remapped ECU that netted 610 horsepower. That’s up from the 525 horsepower output from the standard model.

Interior modifications were also done on the car, particularly the addition of bucket seats with six-point belts, braces, and even a fire extinguisher. Mechanically, Racing One adapted a running gear that comes with two-way MDS dampers from Bilstein Motorsport. There are also brake pads from Performance Friction Brakes, and a titanium, naturally flip-controlled exhaust system made by the authority in exhaust systems, Akrapovic.

All told, the program will cost more than just a pretty penny for a lot of interested buyers. If you want this installed on your R8, prepare to shell out €26,000, which is around $33,000 based on current exchange rates.

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
