T1 Race Development’s 2,000+ HP Audi R8 is Faster Than Most Hypercars

T1 Race Development 2000HP Audi R8
T1 Race Development’s Audi R8 may look normal at first glance, but under the hood, you’ll find a twin-turbocharged 5.2L V10 engine making 2,061 hp and 1,246 lb-ft of torque, mated to an automatic 6-speed gearbox.

Tony Palo of T1 Race Development started out tuning Honda vehicles, but eventually moved on to the Nissan R35 GT-Rs before this Audi R8 came into view. The latter’s modding journey was kickstarted after Motec released a plug-and-play ECU kit for the Audi R8 V10 and modifications ensued, including a pair of 80mm turbos, which gives it the potential for 2,500 hp.

As an ongoing development project, the R8 hasn’t hit its ultimate power number yet, although Palo’s plan is to push it to the limit and beyond. Of course, expanding the tuning scope of modern sports cars is a complex calibration exercise, and the T1 team records 850 channels of data during each drag pass, which feed back into development,” said Mike Spinelli, Head of Content at Motorsport Network.

MANSORY Empower Concept Flying Hypercar
The MANSORY Empower concept teases the future of flying hypercars, and its front end looks like a Ferrari SF90 meets the Lamborghini Huracan STO. This vehicle would seemingly have the ability to hover in place, similar to those seen in such films as Blade Runner.



No powertrain was mentioned, but we imagine it having something similar to the all-electric Alef Model A, which can travel for up to 110-miles on a single charge. However, MANSORY will have to first build a functional prototype before requesting FAA approval for test flights.
