Taking the 710-horsepower R8 5.2 out for some fun.
STaSIS Engineering has taken the Audi R8 5.2 to an entirely new level of performance with the Signature Series R8. The new tuning program uses the largest Magnussen/Eaton supercharger in production to create 7.5 PSI of boost pressure and along with a new intake, exhaust, and software tune, pushes the V-10 to produce an incredible 710 horsepower and 523 lb-ft. of toque. This propels the all-wheel drive animal to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds; a 0.6-second improvement over the stock time.
Matt Farah and the team at TheSmokingTire.com have been given the keys to one of the fastest Audis and takes it for a drive through some winding canyon roads. Just listen to that exhaust note!
