The German tuning company xXx recently announced their upgrade kit for the Audi R8.

Generically named the 2013 xXx-Performance Audi R8 Biturbo, the car comes with a few visual tweaks to complement some its major engine rework.

Engine

The tuning team attempted to get more power out of the V8 engine. Successfully, what you get is a twin-turbo system added to the stock 4.2 liter V8 engine, increasing the horsepower to 707.

Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph comes at 3.6 seconds while the top speed has been electronically limited to 194 mph. The additional power required a new gearbox as well. xXx uses a new 6-speed manual gearbox and a new clutch.

Handling

The upgraded rims and tires offer better road grip and more stability when cornering. Its aerodynamic lines increases the downforce in the frontal part of the car giving it better stability at higher speeds.

However, due to the fact that the car is relatively close to the ground and its bigger rims make it difficult to drive on pock-marked roads.2013-xXx-Performance-Audi-R8-Biturbo--real-wide-C

Exterior

xXx did very little work on the exterior. It features the same large frontal grille to go with the additional air vents beneath the headlights. The air intakes on the side of the car are painted in black.

The rear received a few decals. On the sides, the twin-turbo manufacturer’s name has been painted on the lower half of the door. The stock wheels have been replaced by the 20 inch Oxigin 14 Oxrock rims.

The company will be offering three different upgrade packages but the twin-turbo version offers the highest power output gain. xXx’s kit adds a significant performance boost that gives the car the ability to compete against V10 engines.2013-xXx-Performance-Audi-R8-Biturbo-thumbnail-B
