German tuner, Wheelsandmore, is offering a performance upgrade on the Audi R8 V10 model which is powered by the 5.2 liter TFSI engine.

Wheelsandmore handcrafted its own stainless-steel exhaust system with valve control. Together with a re-mapped ECU, the R8’s 5.2 liter V10 TFSI engine’s output gets boosted to 600 PS with an accompanying 590 Nm of torque. That's a boost of 75 PS and 60 Nm of torque over the standard configuration which generates 525 PS and 530 Nm.

The tuner has also crafted its own 3-piece wheels for the R8, which come in 9 x 20 dimensions at the front and 11 x 20 for the rear in various color combinations. The rims come wrapped in Continental Sport Contact III tires sized 235/30/20 and 295/25/20 for the front and back respectively.

For the suspension, there's KW race coilovers with adjustable rebound and compression rates. The new hydraulic suspension can move 4.5 cm in either direction vertically to adjust the ride height.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
