    Quickest/Fastest V8 R8, MRC Tuning's single turbo R8 V8 at the dragstrip - 11.1@132

    Good results here for an R8 V8 turbocharged with a single turbo setup from MRC Tuning. We have previously sit this turbo V8 R8 setup in action hitting an impressive 204.4 miles per hour but this 1/4 mile run gives us a much idea of the performance capability. With the GT45 turbocharger and upgraded fuel system (modified LPFP and HPFP pumps) the R8 V8 4.2 managed an impressive 11.1@132 in the 1/4 mile putting it ahead of any other recorded R8 V8 at the dragstrip.

    A more aggressive launch would easily get the car into the 10's. The R8 V8 4.2 in stock form is capable of high 12's in the 110 mile per hour range making this single turbo setup a large improvement. Enjoy the video below.

    the launch looked a bit weak. The car obviously bogged pretty bad. Get that sorted out and this car can run mid 10's all day i would think. 1.9 60 for an AWD turbo supercar?

    Definitely a weak launch but I think these were just shakedown passes. They'll get it into the 10's pretty easily once they're ready to abuse the drivetrain.

    how is this impressive? A single turbo'd v8 supercar that can't even run a 10 second 1/4mi time? LOL. Now the top speed. That's impressive. But lets be honest here. If I put that much money into a super car and it didn't run 10s first time out I'd probably sell it.

    Well the V8 R8 just is a lot weaker than the V10. With no DCT in these... that also hurts. The 4.2 just isn't that fast or strong but this is a hell of a lot better than stock.

    I remember when I blew an R8 away for the first time with just bolt ons, wow was it fun. Guy looked like he walked in on me doing his wife.

    LMFAO. exactly my point though. I'm pretty sure V8 R8 owners aren't buying them because they're some special supercar. Status symbol and can't affor a V10. Has to be. IDK. LIke I said though, that top speed is pretty impressive.
