Since the German super car is only limited to 333 units, the fact that it gets its own tuning program ramps up the exclusivity to a whole new level. The whole onus of the program was to make the R8 GT Spyder lighter and more powerful, a task that’s easier said than done.
In order to accomplish it, Wheelsandmore prepared a special performance package that includes a lighter stainless steel exhaust system with remote-able valve flaps that’s 40% lighter than the standard equipment. Add that to special carbon-frame air filters and a reprogrammed ECU that nets a new output of 620 horsepower and 435 lb/ft of torque, and you have an R8 GT Spyder that’s even more special than the rest of its special edition brethren.
Suspension was also an important part of the program. In this case, Wheelsandmore fitted the German super car with the latest state-of-the-art motorsports technology from KW-Automotive within the LCS (level-control-system) hydraulic lift up system. There’s also a remote control switch that provides an additional road clearance of +40mm and a separate and independently adjustable rebound- and compression damping, giving the owner free reign over his super car’s suspension set-up.
Finally, there are the handcrafted 3-piece ultralight forged 6Sporz² wheels that can be customized and finished according to the customer’s whims. The wheels are then wrapped in a set of Continental Sport Contact 5P tires.
