Edo Competition upgrades the Audi R8

We all know Edo Competition for its tuning program for the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, Maserati MC12 but they also do Aston Martin, Mercedes and the Porsche Carrera GT. Now the German tuning company can add the Audi R8 to its list. Don't expect a huge increase of power, Edo only pumped another 22 bhp from the 4.2 liter V8, this makes a total of 442 bhp. This extra 22 bp makes the R8 go a 0.2 seconds faster, only 4.5 seconds in the 0 - 100 kilometers per hour sprint.

The exterior hasn't changed that much. Customers can choose between 19"and 20" alloy wheels. The front spoiler has been changed and Edo has added a carbon fibre diffusor. If you look closely you'll see that the exhaust system has been upgraded as well. All these changes make the car go 9 kilometers per hour faster so the R8 is capable of reaching 310 kilometers per hour.
