The production version of the PPI R8 Razor GTR will make its debut at the Top Marques Show in Monaco on April 16. Carbon fiber has been used extensively to achieve lower overall body mass and improve performance.
The full-production PPI R8 Razor GTR will make its world debut at the Top Marques Show in Monaco next week. The Razor GTR is not the regular PPI Razor although it is also based on the Audi R8. The car was unveiled at the 2008 Essen Motor Show.
Some of the alterations made on the R8 include the use of carbon fiber, aluminium and titanium in order to reduce weight and improve performance. It has a widebody appearance with aerodynamics that have been wind tunnel tested.
The interior has been completely redesigned. It now features Onyx Nubuck leather highlighted in orange. Carbon fiber is used in the gear lever, the lightweight folding seats, centre console inserts, door trims, door sill protectors, as well as for the driver and radio console surround.
When it was shown at Essen the Razor GTR was powered by a 580hp (427kW) engine with maximum torque of 600Nm that allows for a 0 - 100km/h sprint time of 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 332km/h.
Former racing driver and race commentator Ellen Lohr will drive an example of this limited-production car during the Top Marques show at the Monaco Grand Prix circuit.
