Audi R8 owner claims 2k hp

Ok, I have a question for some of you guys that know your shit. I was with a friend last night and some guy in Katy, TX claims he has 2 Audi R8's that push 2k hp, are street legal, and daily driven. I called B.S from the start. But after doing some internet research i'm almost positive he is full of shit. Am I mistaken?

I saw a few online but they were far from street legal and they didn't even use the stock engine at all. Lambo engine swap is what they used. The damn thing needed a parachute to stop. lol

yeah he wishes... that car would be undrivable with 2,000 hp. And the amount of money it would take to get it there would be astronomical.

That is what I tried to explain... Apparently, he is going to "show me up" tomorrow and show me a video dynoing one of the cars at 2k hp. lol I can't wait. If this kid had 2 R8's pushing 2k hp in street mode he would be FAMOUS.

Seriously this whole push for MOAR HP is stupid. If all you want to do is strap the car to a Dyno and produce big numbers then ya, sure.

But I feel it's a waste of an amazing car, that kind of horse power would make it WTFOMGBBQ insane to try and drive... in ANY situation.

The Audi R8 is a beautiful, powerful vehicle in stock form, and yeah I'm all for modding for taste or personality. But a person that wants a driving car does not want something with 2000 horsepower.
