  • 2012 Proton Saga FLX bolt on turbo

    Here is my own 2012 Proton Saga FLX bolt on turbo. Currently running without management, still able to boost up to 0.4 bar (albeit with bad fuel consumption). Saving up for a Haltech Sprint 500 standalone! To complement the power, a new semi-racing clutch will be dropped in. Next is to upgrade the brake system to a double servo pump, and better brake pads. The car is currently running on a lowered spring setup (Sapura sports spring) which is sufficient for daily usage. Read more

550PS New Audi R8 V10 Plus: 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds!

Audi’s R8 has been given a tune, dubbed as the Audi R8 V10 Plus, revealing 550PS from its 5.2-litre V10 engine. In comparison, the standard R8 V10 quattro produces 525bhp (532ps) from the same 5.2-litre V10 engine.

0-100km/h (0-62mph) is done in 3.5 seconds now, which was 3.7 seconds previously. At this calibre of performance, a 0.2 second is no easy feat!

 Top speed is now 317km/h (197mph) thanks to its S tronic DSG gearbox, an increment of 4km/h from the already awesome original top speed of 313km/h (196.35mph).

The New generation R8 v10 will be priced at RM589,377 (£124,675 OTR) in the UK. Malaysians should expect the price to be RM1,000,000 mark though, thanks to the taxes and duties.

Audi has taken the back off its new R8 V10 plus supercar for a new video which allows viewers to see its high-performance 550PS engine in action - and hear it roar.
The film, which captures the excitement of the R8 accelerating at full throttle, is available on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpB1yR9Sz9Y - and has already been viewed over 200,000 times since it first went live.
