STaSIS Engineering has released more details on their tuned R8 Spyder, set to make its debut at Audi’s first ever SEMA display this year. They’ve also announced that they will bring three more tuned Audis to SEMA for display at their own booth, including two premieres.
The STaSIS R8 V10 Spyder will pack a supercharged variant of the car’s 5.2L V10, churning out a massive 710 horsepower and 523 lb-ft of torque. The result is a 0-60 sprint of 3.1 seconds. STaSIS has also thrown in a “throaty exhaust”, as well as upgraded brakes, wheels and tires. A special one-off R8 V10 based on this package will be unveiled at SEMA as well.
STaSIS will also reveal tuning packages for the S5 Cabriolet and Q5 at SEMA. The S5 Cabrio is bumped up to 410 hp with the STaSIS tuning package. It also gets an uprated exhaust, high-performance suspension, and improved brake calipers.
The STaSIS Q5 will put out 310 hp, and have “heightened acceleration, handling, and braking power”, but not much more details are revealed.
The STaSIS-tuned Audi S4 will also make an appearance, although it is not a premiere and has been around for some time now. This gets an 80 hp power boost, a customer-tunable exhaust system, and improved brakes, wheels and tires.
Thanks to the company’s close ties to Audi, all these cars come with a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty when purchased and installed at a certified Audi dealership.
STaSIS Debuts Performance-Enhanced Audis at SEMA 2010
710-hp R8 V10 Spyder and New S5 Cabriolet and Q5 Extend STaSIS Portfolio
Summit Point, West Virginia (October 20, 2010) – STaSIS Engineering will showcase its latest race-bred high-performance Audis at the 2010 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show on November 2 through 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Debuting at SEMA in the Audi of America booth will be the 710-hp supercharged STaSIS Signature Series R8 V10 Spyder. The STaSIS Signature Series S5 cabriolet and Q5 SUV will be introduced in the STaSIS booth, appearing alongside the STaSIS Signature Series S4. These vehicles feature the same performance-enhancing brake, suspension, and driveline products as the entire STaSIS line for sedans and sports cars. Sold at Audi dealers nationwide, the STaSIS portfolio also includes a STaSIS version of Audi’s popular A4 that improves performance by nearly 25 percent, as well as performance-enhancing parts for TT, S5, S4, A6, A5, and A3 models, all with a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.
“Customers have several options to personalize their Audi vehicles, from factory-installed to dealer-installed options,” says Jeff Kuhlman, Chief Communications Officer of Audi of America. “STaSIS exhibits an exciting third option, an aftermarket solution for the all-new R8 Spyder. This represents a high level of content that is a technically sound complement to an already fantastic supercar.”
“STaSIS was built on a history of racing excellence and no-compromise performance solutions,” said Paul Lambert, president of STaSIS. “SEMA gives us an opportunity to showcase our passion—delivering racing technologies to enthusiasts so they can experience the excitement of exotic car ownership in their daily driver.”
STaSIS R8 V10 Spyder
A STaSIS supercharged R8 V10 Spyder delivers an incredible 710 hp and 523 lb-ft of torque, and rockets from 0-60 in 3.1 seconds. A throaty exhaust, lightweight high-performance brakes and upgraded wheels and tires round out the Signature Series package. STaSIS offers the only supercharger kit available in the world with a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty. Visitors to SEMA will get to see a one-of-a-kind R8 V10 created especially for the show.
STaSIS S5 Cabriolet
The STaSIS Signature Series S5 cabriolet enhances performance from 333 to 410 hp and adds 26 lb-ft of torque. An upgraded exhaust, a high-performance suspension, and six-piston Alcon monobloc calipers improve performance, agility, and stopping power.
The STaSIS Signature Series Q5 includes options that boosts factory performance to 310 hp. Add heightened acceleration, handling, and braking power to the Q5’s rugged usability and you get a tough and aggressive, yet refined vehicle that is unique in the sports utility market.
Improving power by nearly 80 hp over the factory sedan, the STaSIS S4 includes an aggressive suspension and a customer-tunable quad-outlet exhaust in addition to Alcon brakes and upgraded wheels and tires. Like all STaSIS models, the STaSIS S4 balances performance with comfort and reliability, backed by a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.
STaSIS products purchased and installed by a certified Audi dealer are covered by a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty integrated seamlessly with the standard factory warranty. The STaSIS warranty is the only factory-level warranty in the industry.
