Loaded, beautiful, and wickedly fast from an added supercharger â€“ this 2009 Audi R8 4.2L Stasis Package is a truly red hot 540hp, six-speed supercar that’s ready to stun them all and as it passes everyone by.
An intelligent supercar like this deserves a color like Brilliant Red. It retains a fine luster today thanks to good care and superior German craftsmanship. So, the super-slippery paint looks great on this precision-built body. The R8 really did throw out the rulebook with its design. The low hood, even lower headlights, and optional carbon fiber side blades give this a perpetual distinction. And the profile of this car looks like how you imagine air wants to flow. It has an instant attractiveness and freshness that tells you this is true exotic.
German cars are some of the best at ergonomics, and the R8 proves it the moment you sit in the contoured leather bucket seats. These seats and steering wheel power adjust, so it’s always easy to find your ideal position no matter if it’s for performance driving or easy highway miles. And that’s the true beauty of the R8 â€“ it’s an adaptable car built to be comfortable in all situations. That’s why you have a long list of features, including automatic climate control, keyless entry/ignition, heated seats, power windows, cruise control, dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. Plus, the center infotainment system includes Bang & Olufsen audio system, Bluetooth, satellite navigation, a backup camera, and Bluetooth. But while this might sound like a coddler, the stick shift, deeply recessed gauges, and flat-bottom steering wheel let you know it’s also a performance machine.
The original 4.2-liter V8 is still under the rear hatch. It was already an appealing powerplant with 420 horsepower on tap. But those who know R8s will instantly recognize this one is far from stock. This is a STaSIS supercharged Challenge Extreme Edition. That means a well-engineered upgrade that gives the motor an extra 120 horsepower. It gives you more power than the V10 version, and yet, it weighs less that that car, too. So yes, you’re looking at a terrific power package. You get total control over it all with the six-speed manual transmission. But more than just an amazing motor, Audi focused on the full performance experience. Even the undercarriage has been engineered for maximum wind efficiency. But the true party piece is the Quattro all-wheel-drive system that was specially engineered for performance driving. Plus, you have vented four-wheel disc brakes, grippy Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, and a recent $5k investment in a new adjustable coilover suspension.
Complete with the original owner’s manual, this is an awesome supercar with a unique heart. So don’t miss this red-hot exotic. Call now or be the person watching a fast, red, blur go by.
