K.MAN (aka Chiptrick) has unveiled a three-stage power boost for the V10-powered Audi R8.
The highest horsepower you will find in a road-going stock R8 is 570 PS (419 kW) but K.MAN is willing to go further with the V10 5.2-liter engine by launching a base GTK stage lifting output to 590 PS (434 kW). It's followed by a mid-range GTK S at 640 PS (471 kW) and the mighty GTK RS packing as much as 750 PS (552 kW). These power gains were obtained by installing a Garrett twin-turbo system and there are also some weight savings prepared as the GTK has lost 40 kg (88 lbs) compared to a stock V10 R8.
As a result of implementing an ideal more power + less weight combo, the Audi R8 GTK will cover the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) sprint in 11.9 seconds. The GTK S is 0.5 seconds quicker while the range-topping GTK RS will need just 10.6 seconds. All three variants come with a Bilstein clubsport chassis frame and for the GTK RS there's also a beefier braking system to match the added power.
At an additional cost, K.MAN can provide carbon fiber or fiberglass body parts and a bespoke cross-x pipe exhaust system with valve control, with all modifications coming with a two-year warranty.
