2000+HP Twin Turbo Audi R8 V10 Plus

April 9th, 2024

Izzy’s Back and he brought a maximum performance twin turbo Audi for our amusement. Last time that Shawn (from Autotopia LA) got in the car with this guy (it was a 1,900hp Nissan GT-R), his backside tried to eat the bottom half of the seat cushion. He was so scared! This time the car is even faster. Shawn better take a half a baby aspirin and grab his crying towel. It’s gonna be a wild ride.

The base platform is a 2018 Audi R8 V10 Plus. When Izzy got the car, it was bone stock. Modified by Sheepy Race, this mid-engine all-wheel drive nightmare has neck-snapping power. Right behind the driver’s seat is the 5.2-liter V10 engine (the same powerplant used in the Lamborghini Huracan). This one has been professionally built and upgraded with a pair of Garrett turbochargers. Maximum output is 2,000hp at the crankshaft. That translates to approximately 1,750whp. The transmission has been built with heavy-duty clutches and billet gears. Everything is controlled by MoTec.

Riding on stock suspension (lowered with coilover shocks), this R8 is ready for anything. The wheels are T1 beadlocks wrapped in M&H Racemaster rubber.

Exterior carbon fiber accents are stock as are the luscious leather door panels inside.

Let’s get this bad boy on the road.
