Hennessey Performance Unveils 912 Horsepower Twin-Turbo Audi R8
Most powerful Audi ever?
While Hennessey Performance is renowned for endowing American muscle cars and trucks with double or triple the stock horsepower, the Texas tuner’s latest creation is a souped-up European supercar: the 2020 Audi R8 V10.
With 562 horsepower, the German marque’s flagship is capable of a sub-four-second zero-to-60 mph time straight out of Bavaria. But with the addition of two precision twin-ball turbochargers, the 5.2-liter engine cranks out 912 horses, which slashes the 60-mph time down to just 2.6 seconds.
Along with the turbines, Hennessy’s performance package include a high-flow air Induction System, dual-inlet pipes, dual blow-off valves, stainless-steel, thermal-coated turbo downpipes, and other high-speed components, along with a one-year/12,000-mile warranty.
“Most people know us for our performance enhancements on American vehicles,” said company founder John Hennessey. “But we also apply the same engineering and design excellence to European supercars like the Audi R8 and its Italian cousin, The Lamborghini Huracan.”
Priced at for $79,500 for the package—that’s not including the cost of the car— the ferocious mods are available for all Audi R8 V10 and V10 Plus models, as well as all Lamborghini Huracan variants. Contact Hennessey for more info.
