Matte Black R8… so whats the story?

Jun 25

Thank you Brian Baldwin of Twenty Forty One for sending us this picture while you were at Squaw Vally Tahoe for a work assignment, must be tough! We wanted to know if anyone has the inside scoop on this matte black Audi R8? It looks to be a supercharged 4.2L V8 with some other Stasis goodies, but we can’t see enough from the pictures to know for sure. If you’re a Nevada Audi Dealer or live in the Reno or Tahoe area and have more information on this car, we would love to hear all about it because quite frankly its sexy!

I saw this car driving around Southern California about two weeks ago. I distinctly remember the Stasis logo in the front.

This guy was in our group at Sonoma last week. I’ll ping the other guys to see if we can pin the owner down.

He joined us at Infineon to test drive the R8 GT. Stay tuned!

I know the prick who owns this. And he is me. 

What would you like to know?

We love it, how do you like your Audi R8?

From Scott Mitchell on December 7th, 2011

Its a great easy to drive sports car… Stasis Supercharger on the V8 gives you big HP with lighter weight than the stock V10. Alcon brakes, 4 way adjustable Ohlins shocks, Stasis exhaust… its been a great car.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
