Stasis Audi R8 5.2 Challenge Extreme Edition

Stasis has made an incredible mod of the Audi R8 V10. Have a look and make sure to watch the video!

Stasis designers envisioned their most potent R8 as a gap-filler in Audi’s expanding supercar range, so they methodically tweaked a handful of the platform’s key performance components. Daily usability and reliability also were kept in mind. A year of development later, they boosted output by 185 horses and 132 pound-feet to 710 and 523, respectively.

Doing so necessitated the introduction of top-shelf aftermarket parts, namely a custom-fitted Eaton TVR 2300 blower and 1-inch-lower Öhlins suspension with stouter anti-roll bars, bushings, and bumpstops. A new computer brain increases output by 27 hp and 41 pound-feet and allows Neckarsalum’s tech to communicate with the new bits from Summit Point, West Virginia, the Stasis home base. Hot fumes are expelled via a less-restrictive, 2.5-inch T-305 stainless steel system that’s 30 pounds lighter than the stock unit.

Corners perch on grey 20-inch FD11 forged aluminum wheels measuring 9 inches wide up front, 12 inches rear. Michelin’s Pilot Sport rubber, sized 245/30-20 front and 325/25-20 rear, provides Super Glue stick. Alcon’s 15-inch front, 14-inch rear two-piece rotors replace the garden variety units, which are 12 pounds heavier. All told, the tuner’s touch carries a 50,000 mile, 5-year warranty.
