Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

PPI Automotive, the German tuning specialist, has removed the wraps around its latest Audi R8-based PPI Razor GTR at the 2009 Top Marques Monaco. The highest horsepower figure, which is 580hp, is reached at 4,700 rpm, and torque reaches maximum at 600Nm beginning at 6,200rpm.

The PPI Razor GTR weighs only 1,580kg, a whopping 250kg lighter than the PPI R8 and lighter than the Audi R8 V10. Because of these revisions, acceleration rate has been improved so that it can sprint from standstill to 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds, and hit the maximum speed at 332km/h.

Racing, wind tunnel development, road testing and track testing helped to bring about these positive changes. Power-to-weight ratio was the primary focus, without compromising the performance of the car whatsoever.

The car comes with a bespoke supercharger that is totally compatible with the high performance stainless steel exhaust and ram-charged air filter system. Carbon fiber was used extensively to cut on weight and includes the new front bumper and diffuser. The front is equipped with larger air vents which effectively aids in cooling the brake systems because of channeling in the new engine cover. Bespoke sideskirt and rear wing with adaptable flap, completes the new exterior appearance of the car.

The PPI model sits atop MAG9 Carbon Fiber aluminum wheels clothed in Michelin Pilot Sport 2 rubber. For the front 19-inche tires are utilized while the rear employs 20-inch tires. Stopping power is provided by big orange six-piston brake calipers.

PPI has designed new coils for the car and even installed a hydraulic lift system permitting a totally low-riding vehicle to be raised by about 45mm to prevent it from hitting speed bumps and make maneuvering in parking garages easier.

PPI quality gets inside the car where PPI used Onyx Nubuck leather with orange highlights to trim the car. Again, carbon fiber was extensively used in the interior, even the lightweight folding sport seats are made of carbon fiber.
