In standard guise, the facelifted Audi R8 V10 Performance delivers 456 kW and 580 N.m of torque, but Wheelsandmore has upped the power output by quite some margin. The build also features a new exhaust system and suspension upgrades.
Using the naturally aspirated 5,2-litre V10 as a base, Wheelsandmore has added chip tuning, software optimisation for the engine and transmission, a carbon-frame air filter kit and a Garret twin-turbocharging system. This increases the supercar’s peak outputs to a whopping 772 kW and 1 000 N.m of torque. Furthermore, a Dodson Promax dual-clutch transmission has been fitted to deliver the extra power to the Quattro system.
No claimed 0-100 km/h time has been provided but Wheelsandmore has confirmed a top speed of 357 km/h. Adding character to the iconic V10 engine note is a stainless steel exhaust system by Capristo, complete with a flap control to adjust the volume.
To ostensibly improve the mid-engined car’s handling, three adjustable coilover packages are available. These include a simple lowering kit, a three-way adjustable system by KW Springs and an advanced electronically adjustable lift-up coilover package which uses the aforementioned KW setup.
Visually, the R8 remains unchanged apart from the addition of new 20-inch front and 21-inch rear F.I.W.E. handmade forged alloy wheels (with a centre lock). These are wrapped in Continental Sport Contact 6 tyres.
