Speaking about the unit, it can produce the exhilarating 550 horsepower (405 kW) and 540 Nm (399 lb-ft) of torque. Nonetheless, this wasn't enough for the tunes and they have raised the standards via a three-stage performance boost.
First, the performance and torque was boosted to 595 hp (438 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) in the "small" Stage One. The Second Stage gives the R8 610 hp (449 kW) 570 Nm (421 lb-ft). At last, the final upgrade Stage Three is called "BB R8 M20/3" and boosts the V8 up to 628 hp (462 kW) and 585 Nm (432 lb-ft).
