Audi R8 by XXX Performance

Audi is one of the most famous brands in the whole world. And its Audi R8 confirms its fame. The car gives an incredible performance and an amazing design and this ensures its place in the top Audi cars.  Some of the best tuning companies such as OK Chiptuning, ABT Sportsline, Prior Design, have already created an upgrading program for the awesome German vehicle. Well, it seems that XXX Performance thought it is about time for them to show their skills when it comes to tuning Audi cars. Their latest project is based on the Audi R8 4.2 FSI.

The Audi R8 has got some tuning kits from XXX Performance before. However, the 4.2 FSI version is something new. The tuner requested some help from Chiptrick and as a team have succeeded in creating the program for this precise R8. The supercar received a twin-turbo system with Garret turbochargers, a bespoke charge-air cooler and a custom exhaust system. These elements are to blame for increasing the power of the stock engine that normally produces420 HP (309 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque.

The tuners offer three upgrade stages for the Audi R8’s engine. The first stages allows the powering unit to develop 590 HP (434 kW) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft), the second stage enables the engine to produce 640 HP (471 kW) and 675 Nm (498 lb-ft), while the supreme and the most powerful version gets the car’s heart to output 707 HP (520 kW) and 809 Nm (597 lb-ft) of torque. The third stage takes the R8 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in only 3.6 seconds. The 124 mph (200 km/h) is done in 10.6 seconds. The maximum possible speed is electronically limited to 194 mph (313 km/h). Besides the power boost, the R8 also gets new 20-inch Oxigin 14 Oxrock alloy wheels shod in 235/30 R20 front and 295/25 R20 rear rubbers and carbon fiber front spoiler flaps and fins, too. The Audi R8 is a masterpiece, and now with all the extra power it is a real craze.
