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?

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.2011 335is DCT, moving to Italy, looking for new car friends

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.
