This past week Audi revealed
it would be attending its first-ever Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) event, with a host of the luxury marque’s cars scheduled to go on show including a highly modified R8 Spyder
from the guys at STaSIS Engineering.
STaSIS is a motorsports and tuning firm based in West Virginia and specializes in turning regular Audis into tarmac terrors. The firm’s piece de resistance is the Signature Series for the R8 and R8 Spyder supercars and the particular model being shown at SEMA will be a bright red R8 Spyder with a supercharged V-10 churning out 710 horsepower and 523 pound-feet of torque.
A throaty exhaust, Ohlins dampers, lightweight high-performance brakes from Alcon and 20 inch wheels and tires round out the Signature Series package, all of which enable the modified R8 Spyder to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds.
Also on show on STaSIS’ stanads will be modified versions of the Q5 SUV, S5 Cabriolet and the S4 sports sedan.
The good news for interested buyers is that all of STaSIS’ products are available through Audi’s U.S. dealer network and come with a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.
The 2010 SEMA show kicks off on November 2 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
