Audi’s finally given the world the new, second-generation R8 for 2017. While no one would call it slow, more power never hurt, right? Clearly that’s the thought over at Underground Racing (UGR), as it’s already slapped two turbos on the new R8 V10 Plus.
That’s right, the V-10 engine, which comes with 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque from the factory, now huffs through two turbochargers.
How much power is it putting out? How fast is it? How much boost is it running? These are all great questions that we would love to get answered. Unfortunately UGR hasn’t given us the answers to any of these questions, yet.
What it has given us is a teaser video (above), which let’s us both see and hear what this banana-yellow R8 V10 Plus sounds and looks like while it blasts down the dragstrip. We also get a quick glimpse of the powertrain.
Hear that noise? The sound of those turbos spooling. It’s a thing of beauty.
We’ll have to wait to find out exactly how much power this monster puts out, and how fast it is. In the meantime, know this: UGR is known for building monsters, so it wouldn’t be shocking if this modified R8 is putting out more than 2,000 horsepower.
