There’s no doubt Audi made some big weaves when they launched the R8; the Audi R8 still does. Probably why, in collaboration with Chiptrick, aftermarket specialists xXx Performance developed a Biturbo system for the Audi R8 4.2 FSI, revealing their new Audi R8 4.2 FSI quattro Biturbo.Looking dangerous!

The Audi includes Garret turbochargers, a bespoke charge-air cooler, a high-pressure fuel pump and more efficient injection nozzles. The xXx Performance Audi R8 Biturbo was also fitted with a custom sport exhaust system – with a cross x-pipe – and a valve control system. Audi fans may also opt out for the charge-air cooler’s covers in red, black or carbon – if you wish for a fancier look under the bonnet.

xXx Performance didn’t sop there; they’ve also remapped the R8’s ECU and – for the sequential R-tronic 6-gear transmission version only – they’ve also reprogrammed the gearbox’s software. xXx Performance is offering the Biturbo package for the Audi R8 in three stages:

  • Stage 1 – 590 hp and 660 Nm of torque
  • Stage 2 – 640 hp and 675 Nm of torque
  • Stage 3 – 707 hp and 809 Nm of torque

The more powerful Stage 3 version of the xXx Performance Audi R8 is able to accelerate from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.6 seconds, to 200 km/h in 10.6 seconds, and to 300 km/h in 25.8 seconds. The top speed is 313 km/h. Moreover, the Biturbo package is also available for the Audi R8 V10 too and – depending on the stage – that Audi develops between 850 and 1,200 hp. The xXx Performance program for the Audi R8 Biturbo features other goodies as well: 20-inch Oxigin 14 Oxrock alloys, R8 V10 side blades, and carbon fiber front spoiler flaps and rear fins. No clue about the price-tag, though.
