Watch Twin-Turbo 2017 Audi R8 With 1250HP Run Quarter Mile In 9 Sec

Have you ever sat in an Audi R8 V10 Plus and thought it needs more power, like double the amount? Well, welcome to the world of Underground Racing.

Introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the second-generation Audi R8 came with sharper styling, stronger traits, and more powerful engine variants (compared to the outgoing model).

With the V10 Plus’ 5.2-litre V10 taken directly from the Lamborghini Huracan, it meant that the mid-engined supercar from Ingolstadt could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, and keep on going until it reached 330 km/h (205 mph).

But clearly that’s not enough for the guy (or gal) who’s living life a quarter mile at a time, so that’s why Underground Racing offers a Stage 3 system that comes with a fully rebuilt engine and develops 1,100 hp using 93 octane pump gas, and over 1,250 hp using MS109 high-octane race juice.

Like the twin-turbocharged Lamborghinis they built, the TT R8 has the JRR MoTeC M1 ECU with a custom MoTeC harness and boost by gear setup. It even comes with a 2 year/24,000 miles (38,624 km) warranty.

The result is as monstrous as you’d imagine, with the car completing the quarter mile in the low 9’s. If you don’t believe us, you should check the video down below.
