Underground Racing, known for producing some of the fastest modified Lamborghinis to ever touch tyres with tarmac, has got its hands on the new Audi R8 V10. The sound their creation makes is distinctive, intense, and most certainly emotional.
The Audi R8, available from Jardine Motors Audi, is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine boasting 602bhp. If that wasn’t enough, Underground Racing has teased Audi enthusiasts with a tuning package that’s said to take the power past 1,000bhp - however, full details of this tantalising turbocharging have not yet been announced.
Underground Racing said: ‘Thought we would throw out this quick teaser of the first twin-turbo 2017 R8 on the planet. Track testing went great the first time out. It also didn’t take long to understand that these monster R8s are basically a Lamborghini Huracan undercover. We are torn on which car we like the best. Huge thanks to John Reed for quickly getting our new R9 MoTeC M1 setup and custom firmware completed. Stay tuned as more information will be released soon.’
