World Record Quarter Mile Pass – Audi R8

August 26th, 2016

World Record Quarter Mile Pass - Audi R8 02This is the sound of Underground! The whole world knows that Underground Racing (UR) is on the forefront of high performance multiple turbocharger enhancements for the street. This video shows us that UR is not just breaking barriers with their Lamborghini creations; they are capable of setting world records across their entire vehicle range – up to and including Audi’s top tier coupe.

It also treats us to a world record breaking 1/4-mile pass for an Audi R8. This canary yellow rocket blasts through the 1320 in 9.025-seconds at 160 mph flat.

This 2017 Audi R8+ DCT rolls off the assembly line in pretty impressive condition. It features an all-aluminum, DOHC, 40-valve, direct fuel injected, 5.2-liter V10 engine mated to a 7-speed, dual clutch automatic transmission. The engine has a recommended redline of 8,700 RPM and makes 610hp and 398 lb-ft. of torque. If any of this sounds familiar, it’s because the R8 is the sister car of the Lamborghini Huracan – same engine and transmission, same carbon fiber cockpit, identical steering system, and same electronics. This makes for a fine foundation upon which UR can build.

UR adds their extensive twin turbo X Package with a JRR MoTec M1 electronic controller. Horsepower (running racing fuel) is estimated at 2,200.
