Audi R8 V10 by XXX Performance

XXX-Performance has presented their own take on the Audi R8 V10 quattro.

There is little doubt that this model will surely get you noticed on the road, but it may have gone a little too far with the exterior paint that is accurately identified as bilious green. The model has also been fitted with a set of 20-inch alloy wheels that are styled to match the body's color and are wrapped with Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tires.

The 5.2-liter V10 unit that resides in the engine bay has been boosted to 650PS (478kW/641hp) with an upgraded air flow system that includes a BMC carbon air-box as well as a high-end sports exhaust system. The tuner car also features an H&R coilover kit and G-Ride Airride system that lowers the models ride height.

The interior has been treated to Alcantara and real leather upholstery as well as a set of Audi RS sports seats. Fortunately the XXX-Performance stylists have shied away from extending the extravagant exterior color to the cabin.

It's all a matter of image: Audi's sports car project with the abbreviation R8 once came as a real bombshell; it has meanwhile gone rather quiet around this perfect Porsche 911 substitute. A good quality second-hand of the "small" R8 with the popular 4.2 liter V8 of 420 horse power of the Audi RS4 is available at the moment as from almost EUR 50,000. This amount will definitely be sufficient to acquire a technically mature sports car that is extremely rare on German streets. Even a great deal rarer is the bigger brother with the ten cylinder core, which competes with Lamborghini Gallardo on in-house basis.

For the second time within the shortest possible time, the Tuning Smithery from Bochum XXX-Performance is presenting a reconstructed version of a first class R8. Following the "small" V8 in orange is now the bigger brother V10 - this time in a bilious green, cladded in full wrap dressing. The wrapping of car bodyworks is part of the areas of expertise of XXX Performance. The side blades and the exterior rear-view mirrors were refined with carbon foil finishing as a contrast to the bilious green. Cleaned Audi emblems, front grill painted in black as well as darkened headlights round up works on the car body shell. The real eye catchers are deeply lowered in the wheel housings. This is where exclusive Oxigin 14-Oxrock rims that are fitted with foils to match the bodyworks, roll over the road surfaces. In its format 8.5x20 and 11x20 inches, this combination with the befitting Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tires of 235/30R20 and 295/25R20 ensures sufficient grip on road surfaces. The H&R coilover kit that was completely modified on a G-Ride Airride system ensures a massive lowering of the vehicle. This brute lowering status is thus also realizable for the purpose of public display.

Indeed, the tuners of XXX Performance also left virtually no stone unturned in the 5.2 liter V10 engine. The engine software was optimized and a BMC carbon air-box as well as a high-end sports exhaust system with Bluetooth flap control system from the reputable Capristo establishment provided to achieve a boost in performance to the present status of approximately 650 horse power. The company from Bochum further achieved a boost in the visual appearance value of this roaring ten-cylinder aggregate by implementing different real carbon covers.

Apropos of value boost: The interior of the R8 V10 is now almost beyond recognition. Whichever way the eye strays, the fine Alcantara and real leather in carbon looks with white seams are always sure to be caught in all views. The roof liner, the complete dashboard, the steering wheel, the seats, the door claddings or the plastic parts, you name it: High-grade leather is henceforth seen and felt everywhere. Moreover, the arm supports were fitted with real carbon. There is finally a set of peccably expensive Audi RS-seats that are of course, equally slightly modified and given a facelift in their dressing.

Black wheels, sticker delete, and a V-10 TDI would make this car purrrrr-fect. I can't figure out why Audi has never produced the R8 in a TDI. That would make it truly a 'green' machine.

They tried to put the V12 TDI in there, but a bunch of their prototypes caught fire. Difficult to keep cool apparently.

That was not the case. They were worried that if their cars were to self- combust, Firreari might think tehy are trying to make a challenge in their sector of the industry, something Audi is not ready for, yet.

Actually I don't know why Audi fans want a diesel in the R8! The V12 TDI is a good engine but not efficient. You don't see a diesel 911s so better stick with petrol.
