That is quite interesting since Audi announced they will NOT be doing their DSG in the R8 due to not having enough space for their DSG.

Yes... I would like to see the stripped race interior in this car... especially what they did with the R8's huge dashboard area.
Interesting also that even with a modified ECU and a modified new exhaust system, the power gain was only 20 HP. But that 440 HP can certainly push this car's 2750LBS much faster than the OEM's 3600 LBS!
Here is a reposting of a track video in Varano Italy made by Ti-Mike 10 months ago when he first got his R-8. Really fun stuff with a great Euro feeling to it... Man, the R8 looks super in that dark green color. Thanks for the ride, Ti-mike!
