Anderson is quite a well known tuner over in Europe. It has tuned the Bentley Continental GT, the Ferrari F430, a smattering of Gallardos and so on. With the R8 V10, it now showcases what the tuning house can do to Audi’s flagship coupe.
Anderson is calling the R8 V10 the ‘racing edition’. It gains carbon fibre bits and pieces for the front bumper, rear spoiler, rear diffuser as well as mirror housing covers. The interior also gets carbon bits here and there as well as some tasty quilted leather upholstery. The 19inch alloy wheels boasts the same R8 V10 pattern by is made out of carbon/alloy mix instead. I suppose the wheels are really light and will also lighten your pocket by a whole lot.
It also gets a performance package. The ECU is new, it also gains sports air filters and a sports exhaust system that is 17kg less than the standard one. This is a good mod for any R8 V10 as in stock form, it sounds very quiet when you’re trying to park one. And this won’t do if you’re trying to impress the people in front of the night club. Even though it basically shares the same engine as the Lamborghini Gallardo (with some Audi specific mods) it sounds nothing like it. it is too quiet for its own good or it isn't angry sounding enough. So this aftermarket exhaust system may bring back some of its vocal range. And since it weighs less, it also improves the power to weight ratio of the car ever so slightly.
Anyway, all the mods allow the 5.2liter V10 to produce 577bhp instead of 518bhp and all of this extra power will enable its top speed to increase from 316km/h to 328km/h. This basically allows the R8 to break the 200mph barrier, which is a good thing to brag about at the country club.
