West Coast Customs Tron Audi R8

Friday, January 21st, 2011:

Here’s some crazy tuning by the guys from West Coast Customs and Monster Cable on the Tron themed Audi R8. Take one look at the car and the only thing that comes to mind is sick, literally, you will feel that after seeing all the pictures. Definitely overkill since the Tron motorcycle already seems to be a bust. However, some people will probably like it and want to make their car glow, even if it’s not a supercar like the Audi R8 Tron. Thankfully, there were no modifications under the hood, and West Coast Customs strictly stuck to customizing the exterior with glowing rims, glowing vents, glow seats, and a blinding chrome finish. It looks like they did a professional job building the Audi, but whoever drives this car will probably cause more accidents than help the road.

Anderson Germany Audi R8 Racing Edition

Here is the latest “Racing Edition” package for the Audi R8 V10 from the tuners at Anderson Germany. Starting off with a performance kit consisting of a new valve controlled sport exhaust system, racing cats, sports air filter, and new engine power management system, the Audi was able to drop the weight around 17 kg or 37 lbs. This results in numbers around 585 hp compared to the factory 525, and the top speed was increased by about 12 km/h or 7.5 mph. Exterior styling improvements came next with a new carbon front apron and rear spoiler, along with a carbon diffuser, carbon mirrors, and rear window bordering. Inside the Audi R8, the interior was re-trimmed around the door trims, radio frame, ashtray, gear shift frame, and steering wheel. Topping it off on all fours are the new lightweight alloy rims finished with a carbon fiber to complete the Racing Edition Audi from Anderson Germany.

PPI Audi R8 RAZOR GTR-10

PPI Audi R8 Razor GTR-10

The Audi-exclusive tuning specialists at PPI Automotive Design GmbH have announced the plans to create 10 units of the Audi R8 RAZOR GTR-10. This car carries a V10 engine, with only the front hood, front bumper, and rear diffuser being the same aftermarket parts featured on the previous Audi R8 RAZOR GTR. Although the front fenders, front spoiler, side skirts, rear funder, rear spoiler, rear engine lid, and bumper might look similar in this project, they are all modified slightly. Under the hood, the PPI tuners refined the V10 powerplant with a roof mounted ram air-intake system, vented liftgate glass, a high performance exhaust system, and a reprogrammed ECU for the ignition map. It results in a serious power increase to 601 bhp at 7,400 rpm, and a max torque of 565 Nm at 6,400 rpm. For a comparison, the stock Audi R8 V10 produces 518 brake horsepower (bhp) from the factory.

Sport Wheels Audi R8 Spyder

The tuning company Sport Wheels has just released their version of the Audi R8 Spyder. From the factory, the standard Audi R8 is fitted with a 5.2 FSI quattro engine producing 525 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. Most people believe that this amount of power is plenty, and no further tuning should be necessary. However, the tuners at Sport Wheels are not typical like us, and took this Audi R8 to the next level. Apart from the engine tuning, the cars styling wasn’t drastically affected besides a new set of wheels.

Gold Wrapped Audi R8

Gold Wrapped Audi R8

Here is an Audi R8 wrapped in gold car wrap, and we have seen plenty of these wraps making their way onto modified cars lately. The Nissan GT-R wrapped in chrome, white, and matte black was a hit previously, but now it seems like we have people wrapping cars in anything they can find. So what’s hotter than your typical matte white or black car wrap? Well, some owners would probably consider the rich color of gold like this owner did, when this Audi R8 was seen in Moscow, Russia. But, they aren’t the first. Some gold cars already out there include the gold Ferrari Enzo, a gold Bugatti Veyron, and a gold Hamann Ferrari 599 GTB. Just don’t mistake this car wrap for real gold, since one gold Porsche was stolen in Moscow because the thieves probably thought it was worth much more.

SR Auto Group Audi R8 Valkyrie

SR Auto Audi R8 Valkyrie

The SR Auto Group was all about a dark themed Audi R8 when it came to this tuning project. The tuners started off with wrapping the car with matte black car wrap, then added a series of carbon fiber aero parts from PPI. After the body work was completed, they smoked out the front, side, and rear tail lamps for added stealth appeal. It wouldn’t be complete without a black set of wheels, so a new set of 20-inch Advance One ADV alloy rims wrapped in high performance tires round out the Audi R8 package. These ADV1 wheels are finished with a matte black face and a gloss black lip for a stunning look.

ABT Audi A8 and Audi R8 GTR

Audi R8

ABT Sportsline released a new line of styling kits this past week, the two we have here are for the Audi A8 and Audi R8 GTR cars. Starting with the new GTR-version for the Audi R8, the V10 supercar received a lot of lightweight aerodynamic parts to enhance its appearance. With a new front bonnet, front and rear aprons, and carbon fiber adjustable rear wing, the aggressive R8 GTR looks like it could take on the notorious Nissan GTR. The windows were even replaced with Makrolon pieces, a super strong, lightweight material that is better than the factory parts. ABT’s tuning firm swapped the original door panels with carbon fiber ones, and all these feather-like additions made the Audi R8 GTR 100 kg lighter than the stock model.
