Shmee Checks Out A Quad Bike Powered By Audi R8 V10 Engine
Quads or four-wheeled motorcycles – sometimes called all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) – are commonplace in recreational activities. They’re easy to use and fun to drive, roam, roll, and could really give you a kick since you don’t have to worry about balance in idle.
But if there’s one quad that stands out, it’s this one – the Engler FF Superquad. It’s in an entirely different category, and it sits close to the ground unlike your regular ATV. With a four-figure horsepower rating, this hybrid of a motorcycle and a supercar deserves the super monicker, especially given its insane power-to-weight ratio.
Shmee checks out the Superquad before it’s shown at Salon Prive in the UK, which is something we rarely see from the Youtube star. You can watch the video at the top to see the whole encounter.
The Superquad Engler is an original idea of Victor Engler, a Slovak. You run it like a motorcycle, with the throttle and brakes on your hands, but it has the posture of a supercar – a small one at that.
What’s not small, however, is the fact that it’s powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V10 from an Audi R8. The engine is mounted in the rear and sends 1,100 horsepower (820 kilowatts) to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
With this enormous amount of power involved, the Engler Superquad can sprint from zero to 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in just 2.5 seconds. It hits 350 km / h (217 mph) – you can only imagine how much outdoor fun you can have. With the right equipment, of course.
Only 10 of these insane machines will be produced per year, and Shmee said all units to be produced in the first or two years have been sold. Then again, if you’re interested, visit the official Engler Superquad website and drop them a line.
