Hennessey Performance Engineering popularly known for tuning American muscle has also offers upgrades for a German exotic.
Hennessey has now unveiled an upgrade for the Audi R8. It’s a twin-turbocharger upgrade for the R8’s 5.2-liter V-10, and it sees the output dialed to 912 horsepower. That’s a huge jump on the stock R8 which delivers 562 hp in R8 V10 guise and 602 hp in R8 V10 Performance guise.
The result of this extra power is a stated 0-to-60-mph sprint time of just 2.6 seconds, and a blistering 9.8-second quarter-mile at an ungodly 145 mph.
The price of the upgrade fully installed is $79,500, and Hennessey notes that since the R8 is a twin under the skin with the Lamborghini Huracan, the same upgrade can also be installed on the Italian supercar.
