NFL Running Back Gets a Twin-Turbo Audi R8

Underground Racing hooks up the football star’s Audi R8 GT V10 with serious power.
Former New York Giant and current San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs is known for his big and powerful runs into the hearts of defenses all across the NFL. It seems fitting that the bruising back drives an Audi R8 with the more-powerful V10 engine, however he demanded something bigger and more powerful to better fit his game. Cue the team at Underground Racing. The tuning experts from North Carolina have fitted Jacob's 2010 Audi R8 V10 GT with a powerful twin-turbocharger system.

Underground Racing has remained mum as to what tuning stage the pro baller chose, but the team's twin-turbo enhancements for the Audi R8 V10 range from 700 horsepower at the wheels to a staggering 1,000 horses at the top ofthe line. Underground Racing also painted the silver R8's intakes and side cover panels black to create a noticeable and stylish contrast on the powerful German supercar. The car is currently in transit to San Francisco where Jacobs is located. Hopefully we can see the epic build in action soon.
