Words by Matt Willis

This “Razor Spyder”  is a modified outfit of the Audi R8, done by the German tuning company PPI. With a full carbon fiber body, this R8 cuts about 500 pounds of weight. In addition to the lighter body, PPI also reworked and retuned the engine, fueling, and cooling dynamics on the Razor to generate up to 600-horsepower.

A hard-top version of the Razor, originally built in Germany, also exists. On the test track (according to PPI) it reached 206 mph.

The interior has also been touched up by PPI, with custom seats, trim and colors.

Trucks have really evolved so much in the last few decades, and really – other than show trucks and hot rods – most of them have fallen off the map. Seeing ones like this, that are nicely restored but not over-customized, is both refreshing and very unique these days…

More 930 Carreras…

By the time we wrapped up and headed out, there was a pretty massive crowd around the facility. Once again, HRE hit it off with another great open house. Thanks for having us, and we look forward to visiting again soon!
