Video of the Day: Watch an Audi R8 V10 run the 1/4-mile in 8.4 seconds at 169.81 mph

words: Bill, video: That Racing Channel

Tony Palo started out drag racing Hondas and selling some parts for them. He eventually formed T1 Race Development and became big in the Nissan GT-R world but then an Audi R8 V10 rolled into his life…

Tony fitted a twin turbo setup combined with his company’s own fuel system plus upgraded the transmission for the extra torque but never opened up the motor itself. The results? Zero to sixty in 1.3 seconds and a 8.4 second/169.8 mph 1/4 mile run. Unbelievable. Make sure you turn the volume up as you watch the video below.
