Audi R8 by WheelsAndMore

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

Ok, so you can't wait to get the new Audi R8 V10? Today you have a new alternative: the new customization programme from Wheels And More!

This kit includes a new ECU tweaking (priced at €1,700) which gives and extra 30 hp but also a new compressor kit that really boosts the vehicle from 450 to an impressive 530 hp (also the price for this kit is impressive: €32,500).

Due to the power increase you will also need a new braking system, with 8 pistons on the front and 6 on the rear, priced at €14,000.

The tuner offers also a new rear silencer, providing an additional sporty sound (for an extra €900, this system can be activated through a remote control).

According to AutoWeek, a race chassis with aluminium parts costs about €4,000 while a new suspension kit which lowers the car with up to 30 mm is priced at €8,950.

For a front lip spoiler and a carbon fiber air diffuser you have to pay €5,500 while for the new set of 20 inch alloy wheels fitted with Dunlop Sport Maxx rubbers, you need €9,250.

Looking at these prices, in our opinion it would be better to wait and buy the new Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI Quattro.

Audi R8 by WheelsAndMore

As the new Audi R8 already has a sportsful equipment, the german cartuner wheelsandmore designed a few special parts to increase the look and the perfomance of the bolide. To complete the existing carbon parts a new front-spoiler lip and a rear diffusor, completely done in carbon, were developed.

A new feature in 2009 is a hydraulic lift coilover, adjustable in damping and rebound, which allows lifting up the car up to 30mm helping the Audi R8 avoid road clearance difficulties. From the actual series the 6Sporz wheel-model was chosen to refine the cars look.

At the front axle they took a 9,0x20 with tyres 235/30/20 and at the rear a 11,5x20 rim with 295/25/20 from Continental. The wheels are handmade in germany, weight optimized, forged and any kind of surfacing is individually possible.

To increase the cars performance up to 457 hp wheelsandmore made an ECU update and took their handmade, stainless steel, free digitally programmable exhaust system with valve control. Further a kompressorkit is offered to tune the cars power up to 530hp at 550lb-ft to get the performance of the current not deliverable V10 Audi R8.
