TTS Performance Developing Twin-Supercharged for Audi R8

TTS Performance Developing Twin-Supercharged for Audi R8

TTS Performance is currently in the development stages of creating a unique twin-supercharger kit for the Audi R8 V10 which reportedly will lift power to over 700hp and 700Nm of torque when completed.

With the exception of the Koenigsegg Agera and its predecessors, very few production cars utilise twin-supercharged kits and even fewer high-end tuning companies opt for such a set-up as twin-turbos are significantly more popular in the supercar tuning scene.

Although details of TTS Performance’s supercharger kit are scarce, the company did release a video on Facebook courtesy of MRC Tuning who are co-developing the engine. It looks at the new set-up through detailed 3D drawings of the kit and confirms that it’ll utilise two Rotrex C38-61 superchargers.

Additionally, the video gives us or first look into a dyno run of the car, suggesting that the kit is in its final stages of development meaning a public release is imminent!

Audi R8 V10 Stassis by VF Engineering

VF Engineering is really into breaking the mold when it comes to developing programs for some of the world’s finest supercars. The American aftermarket company definitely knows a power upgrade when they see one and their latest offering for the mighty German beast, the Audi R8 V10, is no different.

With some help from fellow Audi aftermarket wizard Stassis Engineering, VF Engineering took the R8 V10’s massive 5.2-liter engine and made serious work out of it, highlighted by the addition of a bolt on roots style supercharger system and an Eaton/Magnuson TVS2300 four-lobe roots blower with an air/water aftercooling system that boosts up the R8 V10’s output from the standard 520 horsepower and 390 pounds-per-feet of torque figures all the way up to 720 horsepower and 590 pounds-per-feet of torque. That impressive bump in output is particularly jacked up because of the resulting lag-free instant punch of 5psi from as little as 2,000rpm, with the boost gradually climbing all the way up to 6.5psi at redline.

And should the R8 V10 be using a 91 or 93 octane, the stock engine programming is then recalibrated by VF courtesy of an OBD2 port electronic flash.

For all of the program’s downright awesomeness, there is one bit of bad news out there for anybody interested in getting this package. It’s not compliant with the California Air Resourse Board and cannot be used on public roads in California.

Wait, what?

At this point, all we can say is that Audi must enjoy messing with our heads. In the Spring, our spy photographers caught the R8 e-tron testing around the Nurburgring a number of times. Then, in June, the same car became the fastest electric vehicle around the Nurburgring.

Surely, this is a vehicle that is on its way to becoming a prized possession of many environmentally friendly people who still enjoy to cruise around at high speeds, right? Negative. Audi has decided that it will be putting this project on hold and could even be axing it in the future.

The decision to put the car on hold was made by Audi’s new R&D chief Wolfgang D rheimer who thinks that the high price of the batteries could still be a problem. He also fears that there aren’t enough customers interested in an electric car of this caliber.

This seems to be a reasonable explanation for putting a vehicle on the back-burner, but we’re still a little bummed that we will not be seeing the R8 e-tron in all of its glory. Then again, we can take comfort in the fact that the Audi F12 E Performance Prototype is still out there, chugging along with the R8 e-tron’s technology, so not all is lost.
