The brand new 2014 Audi R8 V10 Plus has been acclaimed as the best R8 ever with it being even better than the potent R8 GT and R8 GT Spyder. Consequently, the Audi R8 V10 Plus would be the perfect supercar for most, but for those looking for a little bit more potency, B&B Automobiltechnik has the car just for you.
In standard specification, the 5.2-liter V10 engine of the Audi R8 V10 Plus produces an impressive 550 hp and 540 Nm of torque. Now, B&B Automobiltechnik is offering three different tuning packages for the V10 plus each slightly lifting horsepower from the base car.
The Stage 1 performance boost sees peak power rise to 595 hp and 560 Nm of torque. Next, the Stage 2 kit sees power rise to 610 hp and 570 Nm of torque. Finally, Stage 3 or BB R8 M20/3 has increased power to 628 hp and 585 Nm of torque. The additional power gains have been achieved thanks to modifications to the ignition and injection systems, changes to the intake channels, air ducts, the fitment of the company’s own racing exhaust system constructed from lightweight stainless steel. The performance changes have been completed with new B&B carbon air filters and ECU changes depending on the specification selected.
In top specification, the Audi R8 V10 Plus by B&B Automobiltechnik can sprint to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and is able to reach 200 km/h in a brisk 9.6 seconds. The top speed has then been increased to 238 km/h.
Completing the changes is a tuned chassis as well as light alloy wheels measuring 20×9 at the front and 20×11 at the rear. They are wrapped in tyres measuring 235/30R20 in front and 305/25R20 at the rear.
