Stasis Audi R8 V8 Supercharged

Stasis, the famous tuner of Audi and Volkswagen cars, has come up with a package for the Audi R8 V8 which beats the factory R8 V10 in terms of power and speed.

This R8 V8 dubbed Challenge Extreme Edition gets an Eaton / Magnusson TVS 1900 supercharger running 7.5 psi of boost for a maximum output of 540 bhp and 435 lb.ft of torque. What’s more the car gets upgraded suspension, brakes and a new set of exhausts as well as new wheels and tires for better performance.

The thing is, the R8 V0 seems to have some kind of witchcraft going on in its chassis because it is such a sweet handling car. We’re not sure you get the same awesome drive with the R8 V8, even though it packs a bigger punch. Still it looks quite good in its matte black outfit.
