Racing One, the Rhineland-based motorsports specialist, not only supplies professional support for cars and drivers on race or track days, but can provide packages designed to optimize your vehicle for such event, as this Audi R8 demonstrates.

Using the 5.2-litre V10-engined R8 Coupe as a base, Racing One adds a titanium Akrapovic exhaust system and optimizes the car’s ECU, which sees output rise from 391 kW (525 hp) to 455 kW (610 hp), while chassis upgrades include a two-way Bilstein Modular Damper System, Performance Friction Brakes racing pads and a set of semi-slick tyres. Inside, there’s the obligatory fire extinguisher and a pair of racing bucket seats with six-point harness. Externally, the body wears a pair of R8 GT-style winglets and a lairy green wrap. Prices for the program start at € 26,000.

Racing One also organizes its own events at circuits such as the Hockenheimring, Lausitz and Nürburgring, which include lap data recording along with a high quality video from the day.
