Black R8

Audi R8 V10 in Delaware – Updated

I saw this beauty in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware a few weekends ago and had to share it on the site.  I honestly am not sure where to start on this car.  It has had a few modifications that are trying to make the car go faster.  They have probably succeeded.

First, let’s look at a stock Audi R8.  This is the 5.2 litre V10, which produced about 525 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque.  This car goes for about $150K and is probably worth every penny.  The top speed is right at 200 mph and the 0-60 time is 3.7 seconds.  Those specs can compete with just about any sports car out there.

The first thing I noticed about the car was the color.  Matte black isn’t a usual color for an Audi.  I am guessing this car is skinned in the matte black and not painted.  The next thing I saw were the extra aerodynamic additions on the front bumper.  Since this is an all-wheel drive car I thought it was to help keep the car down in front for traction.

Then I looked at the engine, in fact, you should too.  Did you notice it?   The word “supercharged” is on the engine with a new addition in the middle.  That is a Stasis Supercharger.  It is an additional $40K to the price of the car but it also ups the horsepower to 710 and the torque to 523 lb-ft.  Those are crazy numbers.  I wasn’t able to see any additional enhancements but I bet there were a few more.

I wish I could have stayed to see this car drive away.  The sound the supercharger makes is probably outstanding.  The car is beautiful too.

 

UPDATE – Apparently, this car is the StaSIS Challenge Extreme Edition which was featured in a Motor Trend video.
