The new and improved V10 powered Audi R8 5.2 Liter FSI delivers a maximum output of 525 HP straight from the factory, and even though the ten cylinder engine shares almost all of its architecture with the more exotic Lamborghini Gallardo LP-560, the Italina super car puts out a total of 550 HP. However owners need not worry, because for a few extra Euro they can upgrade the brains of their R8 thanks to the German tuning firm MTM no matter whether they enjoy fixed roof motoring or enjoy their four ring super car with the wind in their hair.

For only 6000 Euros MTM will tune the V10 to deliver an additional 63 HP, bringing the total up to 588 HP, well above the Lambo. The added performance brings the standard car’s 3.9 second 0 to 60 MPH time down by 0.1 seconds and increases the mid engine super car’s top speed to 201 MPH. If you have some more money to burn then you might want to spring for the free flowing stainless steel exhaust system, upgraded Brembo brakes and a shiny new set of wheels to celebrate you car’s newfound performance.

That seems to be a great upgrade that exceeding the limit of an Audi R8 to 388 HP, that quite astounding. It’s kinda hard to tune up and for a reasonable price of 6000 euros, you will experience a speed that’s in the limit of 201 MPH.
