If the Audi R8 put 'old luxury' on notice with its Super Bowl commercial, then PPI is putting Porsche tuners on notice with its modified R8 Razor. Initially shown at the Essen Motor Show last year, the PPI R8 Razor aims to dramatically increase the performance of the stock Audi supercar with a series of modifications.

Just because we love our readers so, we'll give you the best part first: PPI has coaxed an extra 40 horses and 26 little torques out of the R8's 4.2-liter FSI V8, bringing total output up to 460 and 343 respectively. PPI claims that's enough to drop over half a second off the car's run to sixty, down to four seconds flat, with a top speed of 192mph. Pretty impressive, but as you can tell from the pictures, PPI didn't stop with the engine. The German tuning house has fitted a full carbon fiber aero kit, available in glossy or matte finish, consisting of a lip spoiler, larger air intakes that help airflow and facilitate brake cooling, along with sills, blades, a diffuser and an adjustable wing to keep this puppy glued to the tarmac. PPI also used carbon fiber to create 19-inch two-piece rims, complete with black magnesium spokes, and wrapped in ultra-low-profile Michelin Pilot Sport Cup rubber. Inside the CF love-in continues with trim pieces galore, and PPI will also reupholster the interior in custom leather, suede and Alcantara at the customer's choice.

Press release after the jump and images in the gallery below. Consider yourself put on notice.
