SUPERCHARGED LSA ENGINE
The ClubSport R8 Tourer LSA features a 6.2 litre Supercharged LSA engine which now boasts a massive 410kW of power and 691Nm of torque (DIN).
With all this power comes the need for massive amounts of air cooling. To assist with this, the ClubSport R8 Tourer LSA is fitted with a stacked plate engine oil cooler and a stand-alone water-to-air charge-air cooling system.
Torque Vectoring uses the ESC system to detect when the vehicle is starting to understeer, and helps correct it. The system operates by transferring torque across the rear axle from the inside wheel to the outside wheel. This is accomplished by braking the inside wheel and adding torque, through increased engine power, to the outside wheel. The result is a “rotational moment”, acting on the body, helping to steer the vehicle through the corner.
