"Wheels and More" tunes the Audi R8 V10


Wheels and More has taken the wraps off its tuning package for the Audi R8 V10. It includes both aesthetic modifications and a few modest performance upgrades.

By reconfiguring the ECU and adding a valve-controlled stainless steel exhaust system, Wheels and More is able to pump an extra 44 pound-feet of torque and 74 horsepower out of the R8's 5.2-liter V10 TFSI engine. Total output stands at 592 hp and 435 lb-ft of torque.

KW race-ready coil-overs provide an upgraded ride and feature adjustable rebound and compression that is able to hydraulically lift or drop the vehicle as much as 1.77 inches.

The kit also comes with a set of three-piece wheels sized 9 by 20 inches in the front and 11 by 20 inches in the rear. Wheels and More wraps the alloys in Continental Sport Contact III rubber, 235/30 in the front and 295/25 in back.

Several carbon fiber exterior accoutrements are available, including a front spoiler and rear diffuser as well as a LED-illuminated carbon fiber air box.
