Theme Week: 2009 Stasis Supercharged Audi R8

When ridiculous isn’t enough, sometimes you have to take matters in to your own hands.  That’s exactly what the previous owner of this car did.  Enter STaSIS Engineering, one of the premier Audi tuners in the world.  The STaSIS supercharger kit adds 120hp to the already impressive 420hp of the 4.2l V8, and all with a factory-matching 4-year, 50,000-mile warranty.  This of course doesn’t come cheap, the supercharger kit for this car is $30K…you read correctly $30K.

This Ice Silver Metallic R8 for sale in New London, CT is not for the faint at heart with 540hp, and 435lb/ft it’ll certainly plant you in the seat.

At $100,000 this car is about $3,000 over average retail, but factor in the upgrades, that makes the price more than reasoneable, if you’re in the market for a modified super car.  The upgrades to this car are top quality, and with the STaSIS warranty, you know that you’re protected even though the factory warranty may be void.

With all of that said, would I buy this car?  In short, no.  This car was local to me, and was part of the VW/Audi scene here in New England, so I’m pretty familiar with it.  From what I could see, this car had a pretty rough 18K miles, being smoked in, and abused, not just driven hard, abused.  It’s certainly a shame, as no expense was spared in modifying this R8.  So if the history of the car is of no consequence to you, then this is a smoking deal on a true rocket ship.
