April 8th, 2009
Previous - Next



This is the world premiere of the PPI RAZOR GTR in production form, at the TOP MARQUES show in Monaco. The car is based on the Audi R8 and has had an extensive makeover using Carbon Fiber, Aluminum, and Titanium wherever possible. The car is a widebody version of the original car and includes all our knowledge from the past year in competition, closed road races, open road races, and research and development in the wind channel, autobahn and track testing, to create a truly inspired production car. We focused on optimising the power-to-weight ratio of the Audi R8 while simultaneously strengthening the motor, increasing performance, improving handling dynamics, and managing to reduce the weight of the Audi R8.

In addition to the excellent driving performance, this PPI Supercar also has a striking widebody appearance with elaborate, wind tunnel tested aerodynamics. Special attention was paid to the reduction of the vehicle's weight, which was achieved by extensive use of the extremely light and high-strength formula 1 and aerospace-proven Carbon Fibre. All parts are made of this high-tech material, reducing weight and adding strength in the process.

The serial interior has also been completely re-designed and is replaced by highest quality Onyx Nubuck-leather with orange-coloured accents and highlights. Additionally, the limited edition RAZOR GTR makes extensive use of Carbon Fibre throughout the cockpit; hand-brake lever, door sill protectors, Driver and Radio Console Surround, Door Trims, Center Console inserts, and kneepad trims, the ultra-light folding sport seats are also made of Carbon Fibre and bear the PPI "Sport Identity" style, following with the headliner, the steering wheel, shift knob, door panels and center console. The technical highlight of the interior is the ergonomically re-designed PPI sport steering wheel. Highlighting the exclusivity of this limited series production is PPI RAZOR GTR badging, threshold plates, and an aluminium production plaque framed by Carbon Fiber.

The show is from April 16 until the 19th. We will also have a PPI R8 RAZOR on hand to be driven by Ellen Lohr on the Monaco Grand Prix circuit.
