Matt Farah of TheSmokingTire, the YouTube-distributed automotive video series, have had a chance to get behind the wheel of STaSIS' supercharged R8 that graced the Audi stand at SEMA. It being a supercharged V10 R8 Spyder we doubted we'd see much dislike about the car but even we were surprised to see Farah reduced to giggles at how much he liked the car.
In the video Farah raises some interesting points. The STaSIS system is fast enough to move the car from 0-60 in 3.1 seconds and does so without even any real audible whine from the supercharger. Unlike biturbo setups for the R8, this system goes atop a stock motor and can be built, bought or leased from one of STaSIS' many Audi dealership-based dealers. Check out more via the video below.
