2017 Audi R8 is only a few months old. Some consider it to be a proper supercar, while others think of it as an entry supercar. Regardless, this is a fast and quite amazing car powered by a massive 5.2 liter V10 engine capable of some incredible power. In its purest form, it develops fantastic 610 hp which channeled through the Quattro four wheel drive makes for a car capable of supercar performance. In short – about three seconds to hit 62 mph.
Now, think what would happen with double the power, or even more.
We had an answer before because many of the world’s best tuners were improving the first gen R8 to some incredible numbers. Finally, the Twin-Turbo 2017 Audi R8 landed. It comes from the Underground Racing. You know, the guys that drag raced the Lamborghini Huracan and the Lamborghini Gallardo each developing 2000+hp. Twin-Turbocharged Audi R8 is capable of achieving some serious speeds on the drag strip. 1250hp is not a joke at all. TT R8 has the JRR MoTeC M1 ECU with a custom MoTeC harness. This is actually available for anyone who wants to improve their car. Underground Racing is selling these kits and even offer a 2 year/24,000 miles (38,624 km) warranty.
Regardless, a quarter of a mile attempt here gave birth to the fastest 2017 Audi R8 in the world. It finished the race in low 9 seconds. That is astonishing, to say the least. Cloaked speed is 160 mph. Considering this is a street legal car, these results are incredible.
