„Apocalypticar“ by Wheelsandmore
Will the current facelift of the Audi R8 really become the last independent model from Audi or will the model live on from 2024 in cooperation with Lamborghini? Questions that Wheelsandmore did not move burning in 2019. Rather, the specialists for individual tuning of sports and super sports cars were interested in how to get the highest possible and most stable performance out of the V10 naturally aspirated engine in order to transform the R8 4S into a monster machine with the unmistakable name “Apocalypticar”.
Power upgrade for Audi R8 V10 4S
Audi´s high-revving V10 engine is without question one of the most solid units on the market and combines sportiness with high suitability for everyday use. The all-wheel-drive model type 4S is currently flanked by the 620hp performance model. Wheelsandmore has been offering a powerful compressor upgrade called B3AST² with almost 800hp engine power since the model was introduced in 2015. In addition, the manufacturer offers minor upgrades using software optimization, also combined with a flap exhaust system from exhaust specialist Capristo. But the latest upgrade will let the hearts of tuning fans beat even faster. The 10-cylinder engine remains completely untouched, but receives a set of asymmetrically working turbochargers, which are supported by special tailored water- and charge air coolers. With the appropriate software for the engine control and the adapted transmission control, which transmits hte signals to a high-performance double clutch from Promax, switchable 1050hp at 1000nm of torque via a boost controller are good enough for a new top speed of 357 km/h. The acceleration values:0-100 km / h = 2.7s0-200 km / h = 6.3s100-200 km / h = 3.6s0-300 km / h = 14.2 s0-357 km / h = 20.3s With prices between 2,940 EURO and 66,387 EURO for the Stage IV 430hp upgrade, Wheelsandmore has the right tuning upgrade for the R8 V10 for every requirement and budget.
