B&B Automobiltechnik, the Birlenbach-based tuning specialist, has created an upgrade package for Audi’s V10-engined R8 model.

B&B’s Stage 3 program involves a reworked engine management system, optimized air intake ducting, carbon filter and a sports exhaust system – for reduced back pressure, which also offers the driver a choice of four different tones – available via remote control.

Those tweaks see the R8’s output jump from 386 kW (525 hp) and 530 Nm (391 lb-ft) of torque up to 449 kW (610 hp) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft). On the road, the 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time drops from 4 seconds to 3.6 s, while the sprint to 200 km/h (124 mph) takes 10.8 seconds compared to the factory car’s 12.3s. Top speed rises from 316 km/h (196 mph) to 330 km/h (205 mph). The conversion is priced at € 14,950.

Other components available include a carbon ceramic brake kit for € 12,950, a selection of 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels from € 7,950 (Kahn RSV wheels shown), and a choice of suspension upgrades, ranging from a spring set which offers a 25 mm drop for € 998, to two sets of coilovers; a € 3,950 adjustable system and a more complex € 4,950 option, which B&B recommends for those wanting to set their R8 up for track days etc.
