German tuner Wheelsandmore is now offering a tuning package for the Audi R8 4.2 liter V8 that provides more than a few added extras to this raging supercar.
For a mere 1,700 euros, a chip tuning kit offers 30 hp more on the 4.2 liter V8, which will take your total horsepower rating to a nice, round 450. That seems like fair value for your money, yes. But if you want more than that you may have to weigh the considerations of waiting for the R8 V10 version, which will come with a 5.2 liter FSI with 525 hp and will be priced at 142,400 euros, versus the 4.2 V8 FSI which costs 109,100.
Don’t feel like waiting? Spoiled and rich and used to getting everything you want right away? Okay, fine. For 32,500 euros, you can pump up the volume on this beast to 530 hp by means of a Wheelsandmore compressor. For an additional 13,998 euros, Wheelsandmore will also refine the braking system with 8-piston calipers at the front, 6-piston ones at the back, and high-performance pads. Just bring 14 one thousand-euro notes and Wheelsandmore promises they have plenty of two euro coins on hand for your change. Now, that is service.
And there are even more goodies available - an aluminum race suspension for 3,999 euros or a 8,949-euro hydraulic lift full-race suspension that permits the front and rear axles to be raised 30mm, a 5,500 euro front lip spoiler and rear diffuser both made of carbon fiber, two sets of 20-inch alloy wheels for 9,250 and 9,800 euros, respectively, a handmade rear silencer with valve system for 4,800 euros (an extra 900 to have it remote controlled).
