Owners of the entry-level Audi R8 with the 4.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 seeking a healthier output may want to take a look at O.CT. Tuning’s latest offering. The European tuning firm has developed a new performance package that bolts on compressor to the Audi model’s V8 engine while also tweaking the ECU and adding a custom exhaust system.
As a result, output is lifted from 430HP and 430Nm to 565-horsepower and 560Nm (413 lb-ft) of peak torque. O.CT. Tuning says the force-fed R8 completes the standard 0-60mph (96km/h) sprint 0.7 seconds faster than the regular model while it can reach 250km/h (155mph) in just 24 seconds.
Other available options include a carbon-fiber bonnet and front grille surround, plus a high-performance braking system.
