APR Tuned R8 V10 5.2 6-speed manual goes firstname.lastname@example.org in the 1/4 mile
10 second naturally aspirated R8 V10? You bet and what makes it even more impressive is that this is a manual transmission model. The R8 is detuned from the factory to protect the Lamborghini Gallardo's image but since it has the exact same motor an ECU tune unlocks the power and brings up to and beyond the LP-560 Lamborghini. This particular car features an APR ECU tune along with a full GMG race exhaust system.
It also has some lightweight parts including OZ race wheels on Hoosier R6 tires, carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber rear panel, lightweight battery, lightweight rear and side windows, and the passenger seat removed. So, a couple hundred pounds is likely shaved from the car although an R8 5.2 V10 should still be capable of cracking into the 10's with bolt ons alone.
This run took place in Florida at the Brdenton Motorsports Park. Timeslip below:
