How's this for the perfect Summertime Supercar? ...​



Archie Hamilton is no stranger to fast cars, or rather specifically, to this
exact 5.2L V10 engine as he's owned BOTH an R8 V10 and Huracan.





Note: The performance numbers shared in the video are a bit skewed as I
believe they mixed up the information they had on hand for our Huracan
Performante system, and the Gen2 R8 V10.

The Spyder will be at 2.5 seconds / 0-60mph ... and 10.4 second 1/4 mile.
(Improved from 3.3 seconds and 11.5 respectively)

Wow what a click-bait title [Bugatti Destroyer ] LOL . Sales guy seems to be clueless when it comes to cars . I personally seen Porsche 918 run 9.7 at 142mph

If the conversions werent £30k you'd find that 50% of owners if not more would opt for one, i find hiked prices very odd in the fact that selling more at a cheaper price is what makes millions rather than a complete niche. Even Archie says himself he never did it as he hasnt got £30k to throw at an already expensive car and that guy has a fair amount of money lets face it. £15k and id say most cars from 2016-2018 would be charged by now inc my own

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.

(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!
