For their first ever SEMA show, Audi has teamed with STaSIS Engineering to showcase a range of high performance models. The best of the lot is indeed the 710-hp supercharged STaSIS Signature Series R8 V10 Spyder, but they also bring S5 cabriolet and Q5 SUV, as well as the S4. They will also introduce to the visitors their performance-enhancing parts for TT, S5, S4, A6, A5, and A3 models.
“Customers have several options to personalize their Audi vehicles, from factory-installed to dealer-installed options,” says Jeff Kuhlman, Chief Communications Officer of Audi of America. “STaSIS exhibits an exciting third option, an aftermarket solution for the all-new R8 Spyder. This represents a high level of content that is a technically sound complement to an already fantastic supercar.”
“STaSIS was built on a history of racing excellence and no-compromise performance solutions,” said Paul Lambert, president of STaSIS. “SEMA gives us an opportunity to showcase our passion—delivering racing technologies to enthusiasts so they can experience the excitement of exotic car ownership in their daily driver.”
STaSIS R8 V10 Spyder
A STaSIS supercharged R8 V10 Spyder delivers an incredible 710 hp and 523 lb-ft of torque, and rockets from 0-60 in 3.1 seconds. A throaty exhaust, lightweight high-performance brakes and upgraded wheels and tires round out the Signature Series package. STaSIS offers the only supercharger kit available in the world with a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty. Visitors to SEMA will get to see a one-of-a-kind R8 V10 created especially for the show.
STaSIS S5 Cabriolet
The STaSIS Signature Series S5 cabriolet enhances performance from 333 to 410 hp and adds 26 lb-ft of torque. An upgraded exhaust, a high-performance suspension, and six-piston Alcon monobloc calipers improve performance, agility, and stopping power.
The STaSIS Signature Series Q5 includes options that boosts factory performance to 310 hp. Add heightened acceleration, handling, and braking power to the Q5’s rugged usability and you get a tough and aggressive, yet refined vehicle that is unique in the sports utility market.
Improving power by nearly 80 hp over the factory sedan, the STaSIS S4 includes an aggressive suspension and a customer-tunable quad-outlet exhaust in addition to Alcon brakes and upgraded wheels and tires. Like all STaSIS models, the STaSIS S4 balances performance with comfort and reliability, backed by a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.
