AUDI R8 TUNING
The Audi R8 MK2 has 540 PS 533 bhp) V10 engine and also available is a more powerful V10 Plus with 610 PS (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.
We use a Quicksilver exhaust system on our tuning packages for this vehicle.
The Active Valve version gives you the ability to tailor your sound to match the environment. At lower engine speeds they can produce a wonderful deep tone, with volume and pitch increasing in direct proportion to rpm climaxing in a robust race car howl at the red line.
These systems have a Titanium silencer and thin-gauge Stainless Steel tube to achieve a combination of the lightest possible weight with strength and durability.
We offer systems for pre GPF models and post GPF models. By deleting the pesky GPF filters, you can unlock the true sound of your V10 engine.
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.
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.
