About Us

Championship Winning Knowledge & Know-How

Owner – Al Ludington


Based out of Daytona Beach, FL, V8R Performance is owned and operated by Al Ludington, a road racing crew chief with over 10 championships.

​With a desire to shift more toward automotive side, Al partnered with V8R Roadsters, a Mazda performance parts manufacturer. With this move, he brought with him decades of mechanical & racing knowledge.

​V8R Performance is the designated conversion partner of V8 Roadsters. We are not the typical auto shop. We work on an appointment only schedule, allowing us to take the necessary time and energy to ensure every vehicle and motorcycle gets the same quality and attention to detail.

What we do

Every customer’s project is unique, and treated as such

“He is a great guy with a great knowledge and LS Motors and building Miatas highly recommend coming to see him for any of your LS issues”

“Al and his crew are very knowledgeable and down to earth. They do not play any games and tell it to you straight. I wish more performance shops would do the same.”
