People tend to get excited, and maybe a even a little bit carried away when it
comes to comparison talks ... but I think he's basing his assessment just on the
advertised numbers alone, for our V10 Supercharger Systems vs. some of the
more well known hypercars.
What he seems to be missing is that while the 5.2L V10 engine is shared between
all of the current model Audi (Gen2) R8 models, as well as Lamborghini Huracan
variants,... is that the R8 V10 Spyder sits at the bottom of that food chain based
on the added weight, chassis flex, and gearing.
That being said, our systems have tested with Motor Trend multiple times over
that past few years to produce 0-60 times as low as 2.2 seconds, and the 1/4
mile in as low as 9.9 @ 144mph. This does indeed rival (if not beat) a number
of hyper cars, including a number of Veyron models. LINK: www.motortrend.com The-21-Quickest-Production-Cars-MotorTrend-Tested-in-2018/
(VF's mention comes in the paragraph just below the #1 car for 2018
At the end of the day our benchmark for these systems is not other vehicles
or products, but rather the degree of improvement over stock and the amount
enjoyment/excitement that will provide the driver during his ownership.
For the Spyder in the video above, the power goes from 540hp to 805hp,...
which is 265 horsepower over stock (roughly 49% UP) and dramatically
improves every popular measurement of performance!
