Specialist Audi tuners PPI Automotive Design have created the PPI Razor GTR based on the Audi R8, taking 250 kg off the 1,580 kg curb-weight of the production R8. The Razor GTR delivers 580 hp (at 7,400 rpm) and a windmill-esque torque of 600 Nm.

Specialist Audi tuners PPI Automotive Design have twinkled their fingers and, shazam, delivered this supercar which is supposed to be an R8 underneath it all.

Their little magic act delivers 580 hp (at 7,400 rpm) and a windmill-esque torque of 600 Nm. Couple that with a diet that takes 250 kg off the 1,580 kg curb-weight of the production R8 and you can see where this is all headed.

The PPI RAZOR GTR goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds. Speed tops out at 332 km/h.

Special carbon fiber body panels, including side skirts and a rear wing, and PPI wheels cast from lightweight materials provide for the decrease in weight and improved aerodynamics with a wider body skin.

Superior handling comes from the 10Jx19 MAG11 wheels fitted with 255/35 ZR 19 Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires at the front, and 11.5J x 20 MAG11's on 325/25 ZR 20 Michelin Pilot Sport 2 at the back. A high-performance braking system is added with 6-piston callipers and extra large discs.

The PPI is a full-on tuner and does the interior as well with Onyx Nubuck leather and carbon fiber materials to refashion the cabin in a "sport identity" and lighten the car too.

See press release for full details.

The PPI Razor GTR will debut at the Essen Motor Show which runs from the 29th of November to the 7th of December.
