2008 PPI R8 Razor

The PPI R8 and PPI R8 Razor – automobile lifestyle in carbon fibre

2008 PPI R8 RazorWith the launching of the R8, Audi heats up against rivals Porsche, Ferrari and Bentley vigorously providing stiff competition. The Swabian, German tuners PPI Automotive Design GmbH, customize Audi's flagship sportscar by stoking up the fire wîth even more coal going that extra mile by providing an enhanced look combined wîth improved driving dynamics. A wind tunnel-tested aerodynamic kit of carbon fibre in combination wîth a performance enhancement and special lightweight magnesium wheels in 19-inch dimensions provides measurably improved appearance whether on the race track or the elegant promenade of the elite jet set.

Optimised performance for better resilience and increased driving pleasure2008 PPI R8 RazorThe stage 1 kit produces an increase power output of the original motor from 309kw/420hp to 348kw/460hp and increases torque from 430Nm/317lb-ft to 465Nm/343lbs-ft. A performance kit wîth durable components designed by PPI consists of corrosion resistant stainless steel sport rear muffler wîth throttle system. Just beginning at low-end torque, the resulting sound signals pure power, but wîth high speeds one experiences an even more imposing sound. Matched to this is a complete optimised engine management plus sport air filter providing the unit wîth extra breathing abilities. Results are a top speed of 192 mph (311 km/h) and sprinting from 0-60 mph in only 4,0 seconds; a six-tenths decrease versus standard production.

PPI aerodynamics: continued further development in carbon fibre

2008 PPI R8 RazorWithout being overstated, PPI's approach to the R8 was to retain the standard series design, wîth the addition of PPI developed aerodynamics. All PPI aerodynamics for the R8 are made of carbon fibre. This material is commonly used in motor sports reducing general weight yet simultaneously increasing sturdiness. This material is already featured in the Audi base model. PPI consequently takes a further step applying carbon fibre as the main component wîth highest quality for its entire car body material. Furthermore, PPI production carbon fibre parts are available in glossy or matte finish. The PPI aerodynamics package includes a lift reducing front lip spoiler. This more aggressive front air damn is designed to channel air to the front brakes, and cut through the air. In addition, the PPI designed, front bumper air intake 'cartridges' were created for OEM fitting, and for improved air ventilation of the front radiator wîth separate air channel for brake cooling. Side sills sedate air inflow between the axles and provide this vehicle wîth a sporty and aggressive look even when standing still. It's lateral appearance is completed wîth side blades in carbon fibre matte finish as standard production series offers carbon fibre glossy only. The diffuser wîth integrated PPI-designed air channels for exhaust pipe cooling stabilizes the rear wîth extra downforce and directional stability. The new double-sided rear grill deflects engine heat and exhaust system outwards and flanks the middle PPI rear plate. Rear spoiler wîth its adjustable wing increases downforce on the rear axle and completes the sporty elegant look.

PPI MAG9: the lightweight wheel from PPI

2008 PPI R8 RazorThe new PPI MAG9 wheel design characterises the connection of high technical demands to sporty elegance. The two-part magnesium wheel wîth nine spokes and a wheel rim of carbon fibre commands not only by its exclusive look, but also through its outstanding craftsmanship setting new benchmark standards in the Audi tuning arena. The offered PPI MAG9 comes in dimension 9 x 19 front and 11 x 19 rear. Through the use of ultra light material magnesium resulting in reduction of unsprung mass, acceleration as well as deceleration and handling are distinctly improved. Weighing a mere 7,8 kg for front axle rims and 8,2 kg for rear axle rims, the PPI wheel are absolute champions in the lightweight arena. Optimal tires developed for the PPI R8 Razor in cooperation wîth Michelin are the supplied Michelin Pilot Sport Cup in dimensions 235/35 ZR19 (front) and 305/30 ZR19 (rear).

Ideal interior engineering

2008 PPI R8 RazorTo complete the exclusive enhancements of the R8, PPI offers extensive modifications in materials and parts to the original interior. PPI offers handbrake, door entry threshold plates and middle instrument panel in carbon fibre. The technical highlight of the interior is the new PPI designed ergonomic §teering wheel (available wîth Carbon Fibre sections) wîth additional interface controls for its driving dynamical program. Offered on special request is a personalized floor mat set furnished wîth leather trim. Also available is complete hand crafted precision leather, suede, alcantara upholstery from our in-house saddlers.
