K.MAN tunes the Audi R8 V10

K.MAN has announced plans to offer a trio power upgrade package for the Audi R8 V10. As a reminder, the most powerful version of the German supercar delivers 570 (419 kW) which should be more than enough for most of us but those who still want more should contact K.MAN (formerly known as Chiptrick) as they have prepared GTK, GTK S and GTK RS upgrades.

The base GTK kit lifts output of the V10 5.2-liter engine to 590 PS (434 kW) whereas the GTK S churns 640 PS (471 kW). The cream of the crop is a menacing GTK RS derivative unleashing a whopping 750 PS (552 kW). As you probably have guessed this by now, the huge bump in power was possible by installing a twin-turbo system, in this case provided by Garrett.

Aside from gaining substantially more power, the Audi R8 V10 also went on a diet as the GTK for example has lost a considerable 40 kg (88 lbs). It will cover the 0-200 km/h run in 11.9 seconds while the GTK S does it in 11.4 seconds. The fastest of the bunch, the GTK RS, will perform the process in a mere 10.6 seconds.

These three upgrades for the Audi R8 V10 can be bundled with a Bilstein clubsport chassis frame while the GTK RS also comes with an uprated braking system. For more money, clients can customize their supercar with a cross-x pipe exhaust and body panels made from fiberglass or carbon fiber.
