    MotorTrend tests the Stasis R8 5.2 liter V10 710 hp supercharger setup - 11.0@127.3

    11.0@127.3 is pretty fast, right? Well, it is, but compared to the stock numbers MotorTrend hit of 11.6@122.1 it really isn't all that impressive. Now magazines aren't really the best at drag racing but we would expect a much bigger performance gain than that, especially with horsepower that is supposed to be in the 700 range. Output is supposed to be boosted by 185 horses and 132 pound-feet of torque with the positive displacement blower.

    7.5 psi of boost is added to the direct injected V10 which is part of the $55,000 Extreme Edition package. We have to ask ourselves, for $55,000 shouldn't this thing be running low 10's instead of low 11's at well into the 130's trap speed wise? Why even bother with this then when twin turbo packages are available for less money offering more horsepower and higher trap speeds? Someone would have to really love positive displacement blowers to go this route.

    Positive displacement is way more fun and their blowers are usually more expensive, not cheaper. I'd prefer a positive over a centri any day for pure driving pleasure.

    they maybe better at low revs, but that 5.2 has enough throttle response at low rev that you don't need more.

    It being a higher revving, high strung motor (relatively) torque down low doesn't hurt.

    Complete waste of money! Buy a used M3 or new 1M or something. Those gain in HP #s look like a tune and exhaust system was added and that's it. Wow.

    It has to be much more powerful, I think MotorTrend just kind of sucked at getting an impressive time.

    its probably in the 10's and much faster. i dont think older peopel would feel comfortable driving the car if they said it ran 10's. mph probably low due to wheel spin. either way , $55k? no thanks
