Model #VFK85-02

The R8 V8 supercharger system is back by popular demand!

In keeping with our tradition for turn-key, direct bolt-on power upgrades, with dyno proven daily drivable performance, the latest system engineered for the 4.2L V8 utilizes the Magnuson TVS1740 and a new 7-rib drive belt system. Peak power is increased to between 575-600 crank horsepower, exceeding the factory power output of the popular Audi R8 (Gen1) 5.2L V10, and rivaling the performance of most current supercars.
