AUDI R8 TUNING

The Audi R8 has 540 PS (397 kW; 533 bhp) V10 engine and alos available is a more powerful V10 Plus with 610 PS (449 kW; 602 bhp) engine. The body is lighter and stiffer, thanks to substititution of several large aluminium parts in the shell by carbon-fibre

At GCAP we have designed a package to further refine the Audi's character with a few simple modifications.

Exhaust

We use an Akrapovič exhaust system on our tuning packages for this vehicle.

The Slip-On Line exhaust system is constructed from an ultra-lightweight high-grade titanium alloy, boosting the R8’s power-to-weight ratio and handling characteristics. The Slip-On Line (Titanium) has been precision engineered to improve throttle response and increase both the power and torque outputs. The performance exhaust system is designed to reduce back-pressure to almost half of the stock levels through a combination of specialized muffler shapes, secondary resonators, and titanium dual-mode exhaust valves. It is finished with two exquisitely hand-crafted carbon-fibre and titanium tailpipes that fit perfectly into the R8's stock diffusor. It is tuned to enhance the sporty note from the V10 engine while still ensuring maximum comfort and enjoyment in the car’s cockpit. The tone moves from a pleasant growl at low revs to the unique Akrapovič race-like sound as the revs rise and the excitement grows. The sound can be further adjusted with the addition of the optional Akrapovič Sound Kit.

Software

We have developed our own software to increase the cars performance. This comes in two forms. A stage 1 map (I.E. a software only calibration with no hardware changes) and a stage 2 (with our Akrapovič exhaust system).

When tuning we measure afr, ignition timing, intake temps, EGTs etc. to ensure our tune is as safe and reliable as possible whilst drawing the most out of your supercar.

 

We have seen gains up to 650bhp 540lbft.

Brakes

As with most Audi, the brake system is excellent. However we can offer modified braided brakes lines. Our lines have a stronger wall density delivering a more precise and accurate brake pedal feel. This translates into more confidence in your supercar.
