German tuning firm, Wheelsandmore, has introduced their latest take on the powerful Audi supercar featuring a few styling makeovers, an improved performance set-up, and a swanky name - the Supersport Edition - that hammers home all the changes that came with it.
As far as the visual details on the car, Wheelsandmore limited the changes to a new set of 20" matte black coated lightweight wheels wrapped in Continental Sport Contact 5P tires to go with a new remote-controlled hydraulic lift system that can add 40 mm to the supercar’s ride height. The seemingly bare changes on the car’s detailing is more than made up for by an impressive performance upgrade that features a new electronic set-up and the addition of a handcrafted, stainless-steel exhaust system that’s 40 lbs lighter and comes with its own remote-controlled valve flaps. With these modifications set-up on the car, the output from the 5.2-liter V10 engine has spiked from the standard 560 horsepower and 398 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 611 horsepower and 431 lb/ft of torque.
The added output also resulted in a faster 0-60 mph time for the R8 GT - 3.6 seconds to 3.3 seconds - and a higher top speed of 208 mph, up from the ’standard’ model’s top speed of 198 mph.
