The Audi R8 is powered by a 5.2 Liter V10 engine delivering 525 horsepower and 530 Nm (391 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the open-top vehicle to sprint from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in as low as 4.1 seconds. The vehicle will achieve an impressive top speed of 313 km/h (194.49 mph). Add a Nardo Gray exterior paint finish and this poses a perfect foundation for an aftermarket build.
This project was completed by R1 Motorsport. This California-based tuning company works on some of the world’s most exquisite supercars and luxury vehicles. In turn, they are the perfect people to complete a build like this.
First, the tuner installed a complete Vorsteiner VRS aero package. This package consists of the VRS aero front splitter, VRS Aero rear diffuser and VRS Aero rear wing. All parts are made from the finest Autoclaved Pre-Impregnated Carbon Fiber, allowing Vorsteiner Carbon Fiber parts to provide superior stiffness, aerospace strength and durability compared to traditional hand laid carbon fiber composites.
Finally, a set of ADV10 M.V2 Track Spec CS series wheels were installed. These multispoke wheels are light, made to exact specifications for this vehicle, allowing for a perfect fitment. The wheels are sized 20×9 and 21×12.5 in the front and rear, respectively. The customer chose a Brushed Gloss Manbronze finish, giving his wheels a great contrasting effect, against the Nardo gray exterior. Furthermore, these wheels feature standard 50/50 Titanium Exposed Hardware as well, a perfect accentuating touch.
