Although we’ve never heard of this tuning firm until today, Autodynamica have always worked on state of the art, high performance four wheelers. Backed up by an expertise of around 30 years, this car tuning company has recently presented a stunningly reworked Audi R8.

The stock Audi R8 boasts with a 4.2-liter V8 engine which delivers 420 HP at 7,800 RPM and 317 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 RPM. It accelerated from naught to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds thanks to all that power, its relatively reduced weight and the Quattro system.

Autodynamica have garnished the car with a brand new set of 20 x 12 inch HRE P40 SC forged wheels at the rear and 20 x 8.5 at the front, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sports tires. They have also mounted a medium-sized carbon fiber spoiler at the rear, for a bit more downforce, in addition to a new exhaust exit system consisting of a pair of dual-exit 2.5-inch muffler tips signed Stasis.

By far the most important changes they’ve done to the R8 can be seen under the bonnet. They have fitted the 4.2-liter V8 with a 1,900 cc Magnusson/Eaton supercharger and a custom built, CNC-machined billet aluminum intake system to increase the airflow. A new cooling system was needed as well, thus they’ve also installed a secondary water cooling system. Furthermore, the R8 sports a Stasis full exhaust system, tipped by the 2.5 inch muffler tips we have already mentioned.

The power output of the R8 was increased by 29%, now reaching 540 HP. The engine’s torque has also been upped, by 24%, to a stunning 435 lb-ft. Tied by 6-speed manual transmission with Quattro system to all four wheels, the engine propels the car to 60 mph from a standstill in a whopping 3.6 seconds, 0.9 seconds faster than the stock version.

There were also a number of modifications executed under the R8 as well. They have mounted a set of Ohlins coilover monotube dampers with linear-rate coil springs on the car’s suspension, plus Stasis spring perches and UHMW (stands for ultra-high-molecular-weight) discs. The last upgrade done to the suspension is a rear anti-roll bar, which prevents the car from leaning too much.

A Stasis brake system was also installed to make sure the driver is safe, consisting of 390 mm (15.35 inches), 2-piece rotors at the front and 355 mm (13.97 inches), 2-piece rotors at the rear.

As for the price of this magnificent car, it hasn’t been disclosed by Autodynamica. One thing is certain though – the package is bound to cost a bit more than £50.000, given the fact that only the Stasis parts cost $44,995. All in all, it surpasses a lot of renowned supercars.
