Australian Tuners Supercharge V8-poowered Audi R8 to 565 HP

We’ve heard of O.CT Tuning before, the Austrian customizers that brought us the Boehler concept.BS3 back in 2009 and are best known for their work with ECUs. This time, the tuners have turned their attention to the regular Audi R8, giving it more power than even the V10 GT version has to offer.

See Audi, why did you phase out the 4.2-liter in the S5? You guys could have added a supercharger that would have made it so awesome.

By adding its Roots type supercharger kit, along with a stainless steel exhaust and reprogrammed engine management, the O.CT R8 pushes out an impressive 565 hp and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque.

No figures have been released regarding the car’s 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph ) or 200 km/h (124 mph) times, leading us to believe that this car is built for speed, not acceleration. The supercharged R8 is capable of hitting 250 km/h (155 mph) in just 24 seconds. That’s 9 seconds faster than a standard car.

“This values do not match the factory specifications, but are measured in O.CT test drives on real highways under real circumstances without any weight reductions etc. Herewith we can present values which can be reached in reality,”
O.CT Tuning says.

The Austrian company has also shown a video of their work. The car is being tested on a dyno and it sounds like a combination of an American musclecar and one that’s been tuned in a video game like NFS. There’s plenty of screaming sounds coming from the exhaust, plus a few flames for added entertainment value.
