    UGR wraps up its first TT R8

    As told by tuner John Reed:

This UGR stage 3 specification R8 should be great competition against our Gallardo twin turbos! More details and video coming soon.

    Features UGR built engine, UGR Stage 3 twin turbo kit, UGR upgraded clutch/axles, MoTeC engine management by myself, and all the other goodies that make up these great builds.

    Huge thanks to Cody W. out of Austin, Texas for letting us build his TT Audi R8!

    I must say the look of this kit is probably my favorite overall design the guys have done so far.

    UGR does $#@! right.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Might as well -- considering the bumper is still off, it might be a week or more before the videos are done

    Don't they share the same V10? if so, that would be a damn close race, only the gearing/aerodynamics/weight would be the main factors...

    ahh im taking into account that the r8 v10 was detuned but with UGR that would be gone. would really be interesting to see though. how do the transmissions, gearing, aero compare though?

    When asked whether there were any heat issues having the charge and exhaust pipes so close together he replied:

    Engines, transmissions, and tire sizes are the same although I suppose it is possible Audi tweaked the final drive. The weight is the main factor: an R8 GT weighs about the same as a Gallardo, but 200lbs more than the Superleggera. The regular R8 weighs 400lbs more than a Gallardo, and 600lbs more than a Superleggera... Audi released aero specs (.35 Cd 21.4 frontal area) but Lamborghini has not (wiki says .31 for a murci but I doubt it). Regardless, from the near identical top speeds we know the drag is very close (199mph for the 552hp 3350lb R8 GT, 202mph for the 562hp 3150lb LP570-4 Superleggera).

    S65 can, anything can, it's just that this is all possible due to a mid-engine layout and a Motec.
