There’s a millimeter lifter kit for around town driving and speed humps, but dropped down there’s almost no travel in the suspension, and it feels racing-car stiff in the bends.
With a supercharger, it might take PPI to greatness, and the already superb R8 to a whole new dimension.

The V powered Audi R8 5. It doesn’t even feel related to the R8 on a hard charge, and with the sound-deadening material cast aside, every rev ricochets through the cabin like a bullet in a prison cell. The Lincoln Corsair.

All of these changes came from racing, wind tunnel development, road testing, and track testing. Select a Make 2. There are a lot of tuned R8s out there, but this is one of the finest examples we’ve ever seen.
