Audi R8 V10 tuned by Racing One

German motor sports service provider and event organizer, Racing One, has given this green Audi R8 V10 a little tuning job. Intended to be used as a promotional vehicle, power output was raised from 525 PS (386 kW / 518 bhp) to 610 PS (449 kW / 602 bhp) via an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system and remapped ECU. Racing One also upgraded the running gear with Bilstein 2-way MDS dampers, Performance Friction Brakes and semi-slick race tires while inside, race bucket seats, 6-point seat belts, interior chassis support braces and fire extinguisher were added. Since the R8 V10 will also be used for driver training events and track days, Racing One has fitted a data logging system accessible via CAN bus for later analysis. Two video cameras also capture all of the driving action. Racing One has spent 26,000 euros to perform all of these modifications.
