Prior Design Audi R8 GT850 Widebody


Audi

The Audi R8 was a great looking car when it was launched, but older models can look a little stale - here’s an idea for yours! The Audi R8 doubtlessly cleared the way for the Ingolstadt car constructors to reach the sports car Olympus. Whether in the “small” V8 or the V10-version, the R8 convinces both with a noticeable look and spectacular driving performance. It plays two important trumps perfectly: its closeness to group brother Lamborghini Gallardo and its exotic role between the huge armada of Porsche 911 models.

The development of a new look for the R8 is certainly no easy thing. However, the specialists at Prior-Design took lots of time for it and now present a truly impressive result. The Kamp-Linfort tuners turn the “standard” R8 into a brutal PD-GT850 racing style car. Its outfit would fit the der Nürburgring Nordschleife as well. The front was entirely revised. A front apron with widenings and an integrated carbon spoiler was installed.

Additionally, two air inlet covers were integrated that are applied with two carbon struts each. The motor cowl has an integrated air outlet with four lamellae. A set of new front mudguards ensure a much wider look. Prior-Design improved the air circulation along the vehicle sides by installing aerodynamically formed side sills that also optionally light the vehicle underbody with four LED lamps. The tuners offer the wide side cover in a carbon fibre alternative as well.

The tail area could have been taken off of a GT3-racing car. A massive tail spoiler and a tail bumper with lateral air inlets, as well as a Carbona application put a lot more power onto the rear axle. A set of tail widenings produces a powerful stance. The construction kit (plus paint job and assembly) for the R8 is completed by a stylish roof scoop.

In addition to the car body construction kit, Prior-Design also offers the matching wheel/tyre combination.

By the way: If you don’t like your car quite that wide, Prior-Design is currently developing an additional “narrow” version of the e Audi R8-Aerodynamikkits.
