German Audi tuner PPI Automotive has announced the debut of their Bi-Centrifugal Supercharger (B-CS) kit for the Audi R8 V8 4.2 FSI at the TopMarques Monaco show yesterday.

Churning out a massive 801 bhp (597 kW / 811 PS), PPI lays claim to being the "first and only company to combine a centrifugal supercharger with the R8 V8 4.2 FSI motor in 2009, and now they offer an innovative and completely unique Bi-Centrifugal Supercharging system, once again, tearing away from the competition and boosting the car into the stratosphere where few supercars enter."

The complete performance package consists of two R48 bi-centrifugal superchargers with magnetic coupling, up-rated pistons, rings, connecting rods, bearings, improved valvetrain, water-to-air charge cooler, special sport air filter in a carbon fiber air box, roof ram-charged air intake system, sport exhaust and remapped ECU. Compression ratio is 9.2:1. In the transmission 1st and 2nd gears are strengthened and a longer final gear is installed for higher top speed.

When all is said and done, horsepower kicks up to 801 bhp (597 kW / 811 PS) and torque at 860Nm @ 5910 rpm. 0 to 100 km/h takes 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). PPI notes a higher top speed is achievable with additional aerodynamic components.
