Latest AUDI Headlines

Holding true to the chosen motto is not always a matter of course. Especially when it comes to perfect the perfect things! The fact is that this slogan of the Sport Wheels from Hürth Germany could be again realized without any smear and can convince everyone through the staged here red Audi R8.

Not least for reasons of weight reduction, various Eisenmann parts made of high-strength ultra-light carbon steel were manufactured and installed at the R8, but this has its price. The front bumper with the grill, the ribs and the cooling ducts in carbon make a difference of 7.799.00 Euro.

The carbon brake cooling ducts add 1.259.00 Euro. And 1.799.00 Euro for the front spoiler in carbon fiber. At the opposite end of the Audi R8, a rear apron with carbon fiber grill at the price of 4.799.00 Euro is installed. The carbon-fiber rear diffuser at the price of 3.799.00 Euro and 1.990.00 Euro for the rear spoiler are considered. The level 2 software optimization (only in conjunction with the modified muffler with throttle system and center tube outlet at the price of 4.599.00 Euro) has improved performance up to 600 hp and a maximum torque of 580 Nm that costs 1.449.00 Euro.

The complete wheel set costs 4.599.00 Euro and consists of etabeta Jofiel X black/red rims in 9x20 inch Dunlop Sport Maxx GT 235/30-20er tires in front and 11x21 inch 295/25-21er tires with the same protector rear. Behind the rims easily can be recognized MOV´IT-CER (21.990,00 Euro) ceramics brake calipers.

As aluminum coil-over suspension, Variant 3 KW HLS 4 for additional 7.349.00 Euro is provided. The bottom line is, in fact, no chicken feed in the R8, but you should see the costs for this individualizing as investment in the future.

And whoever will not fall to temptation to get into this red R8 to undergo a more or less extensive "test drive", is probably beyond help anyway.
