The PPI Audi R8 Razor GTR, which was delivered to professional skier Jon Olsson just this year, is now being offered for sale. The one-off Audi R8 – a carbonfiber beauty -- is one of the strangest and exciting R8s to have ever been built. An acquired taste for something more extreme is the reason that Olsson gave in a short blog post where he announced that this car is available.
He said that he made this decision after having missed the build process and after visiting the Ascari race track. It’s strange since the R8 is already a very extreme vehicle. PPI, which is the tuning firm that built this special model, pushed the R8′s V10 engine to deliver over 600 hp.
Admittedly, cars such as the Lamborghini Aventador have a higher output but then, you’d have to consider that it weighs 3472 lbs. On the other hand, the PPI Audi R8 Razor GTR weighs only 1,320. This is nearly 500 lbs lighter than a Smart ForTwo. To achieve this, PPI and Olsson replaced nearly everything with carbonfiber. It took a lot of time and about €300,000 of parts and labor to make this incredible hypercar with an abundance of overall luxury.
