The release of the RENM Audi R8 Enigma concept coincides with the Audi R8 V10 being awarded the 2010 World Performance Car.
The Audi R8 4.2 V8 Enigma upgrade includes an ECU re-calibration, carbon fibre air-intake and performance exhaust that increases peak-power to 460 PS (338 KW) 465 NM.
The 5.2 V10 version develops 565 PS (415 KW) 560 NM with a simple ECU re-calibration alone. By adding high-flow sports air filters and performance exhaust system, peak-power for the 5.2 V10 increases to 600 PS (441 KW) 585 NM.
High-performance exhaust valves are operated via remote control, allowing the user to select between cruise, sport or open modes. The tuning program includes 20-inch light weight carbon fibre/forged wheels, carbon fibre/alacantra steering wheel and carbon fibre interior upgrades. A carbon fibre front lip and rear diffuser are optional extras.
A supercharger kit for the 4.2 V8 is available, and when combined with other engine upgrades, increases total output to an impressive 530 PS (390KW) 600NM. Uprated brakes, including 8-pot front and 6-pot rear calipers are fitted to accomodate the additional power. Other options include race suspension kits or race hydraulic lift systems.
