German Audi tuner PPI Design has released several versions of its R8 Razor GTR over the past 18 months and has now completed the project. The official unveiling happened at the Top Marques Monaco show and there really aren't many words for the exotic other than "impressive."
Thanks to a supercharger kit mated to the 4.2-liter V8, the R8's new output is 580hp at 7400 rpm and 443 ft-lbs of torque at 6200 rpm.
Weight has also been decreased significantly due in part to an all-new carbon fiber body - and a set of carbon/aluminum wheels. In total the PPI Razor GTR weights 551 lbs less than the standard R8 for a total curb weight of just 3,483 lbs. PPI claims the added power and light weight translate to a 0-62 mph sprint of 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 206 mph.
