xXx Performance tunes the Audi R8

Even though the current generation Audi R8 is on its way to a well-deserved retirement, it still manages to pique the interest of aftermarket specialists. For example, xXx Performance decided to modify the supercar and transform it into something that you normally see in racing video games. However, some people do actually like this sort of tuning jobs even though it looks a bit overdone as if they were trying too hard.

This particular Audi R8 has been widened by 40mm (front) and 70mm (rear) and has received a white body paint complemented by striking orange accents noticeable on the mirrors, rear diffuser, front splitter as well as on the side skirts and wheels. Speaking of the rims, gone are the standard ones as these were removed to make room for Schmidt’s FS-Line split-design concave 20-inch wheels shod in Hankook S1 tires.

It’s certainly not an aftermarket project for everyone, especially since xXx Performance lowered the car so much and the ground clearance is almost inexistent so it should be a bit tricky to go over a speed bump. Maybe the tuner installed an adjustable suspension so that the driver can modify the Audi R8’s ride height whenever necessary although this hasn’t been specified in the press release issued.
