Supercharged Audi R8 For The Impatient

Do you want an R8, but need it to have more power than the standard 4.2-liter V8's 420 HP? Well, you could sit around waiting for Audi to bring out the V10-powered model. Or you could try to swipe the V12 TDI concept. But, if you don't feel like waiting or stealing, you could have a Novidem supercharger bolted to the standard V8.

So, how much power is the blower good for? How about 537 HP at 7000 RPM, and 405 lb-ft of torque at 5900 RPM. That means the sprint from 0-60 should take less than 4 seconds. No word on pricing or US availability, but if you really want more punch from your R8, you'll find a way.
