STaSIS presents Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition upgrade package

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 9, 2011

STaSIS Engineering is presenting a tweaked version of the Audi R8 that is more powerful yet lighter – the Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition. Designed to deliver pure driving adrenaline, this Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition offers a bunch of improvements compared to the base version. It accelerates faster, is easier to handle, has a more responsive suspension, and features a more stunning soundtrack.

It is powered by an engine that delivers up to 540 bhp, or around 120 bhp more output (plus 28 percent) than the V10 engine it replaced, as well as 435 lb.ft of torque. This engine features an Eaton/Magnusson TVS 1900 supercharger with 7.5 psi of boost as well as independent charge cooler system for consistent high power output. It also features CNC billet alloy machined intake plenum for better durability and strength as well as high performance STaSIS ECU remap. The magnanimous soundtrack of the Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition is being taken care of a cross-flow exhaust system with 3.0 inches of TIG welded and individually numbered stainless steel, as well as reduced back pressure for better power and efficiency.

Its suspension is made of lowered springs for improved handling and excellent ride quality. The suspension system for the Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition also features matched bump stops and a retained ‘drive select. The Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition sits on 9.5 x 20-inch ultra-lightweight forged aluminum wheels on the front and 12 x 20-inch forged aluminum wheels on the rear – all wrapped in high performance low profile tires. Taking care of the braking is a system from Alcon that measures 390mm on the front and 355mm on the rear with two piece floating discs.

With all of these dynamic and braking enhancements, the new STaSIS Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition should be able to deliver a driving experience that would elate many drivers, especially since this vehicle boasts of a high level of safety. Performance-wise, the STaSIS Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition could accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, compared to 4.4 seconds for the stock version.

Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition continues the momentum set by the V10 STaSIS Challenge Extreme Edition package launched in the United Kingdom just last month. It is an embodiment of the no-compromise philosophy that underpins the STaSIS brand by fusing cohesive powertrain, chassis and braking upgrades to bring the performance of the V8 Audi R8 to supercar levels. To ensure supreme levels of performance and reliability, each of the new STaSIS component fitted on the STaSIS Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition – from concept to production – undergoes rigorous testing. Interested customers could avail of the STaSIS Audi R8 V8 Challenge Extreme Edition from APS of Brackley and from STaSIS agents across the UK.

They may also avail of the individual components separately, allowing customers to upgrade their vehicle as their budget permits.

In addition, APS of Brackley is offering another 10-percent discount on any related STaSIS product availed during the period.
