The kit is entirely made in carbon fiber and completely transforms the look of the R8 , even though the updates are limited just to a new front and rear apron, and a new set of side skirts.
The kit checks in at &euro7,850 — about $10,500 at the current exchange rates — and it can be applied to both the coupe and roadster versions, and all the engine variations.
No changes were made under the hood, but we think that what Audi is offering from factory is quite enough. In case you forgot, the R8 Spyder is powered by a 5.2-liter, V-10 engine that delivers a total of 525 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 391 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. This output is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and up to a top speed of 193.25 mph.

Audi R8 Spyder by Regula Tuning in Detail
Rear Three-Quarter Detail
The new bodykit includes a new front and rear apron, plus a new set of side skirts, all made in carbon fiber. For the rear there is also a new exhaust system with the end pipes integrated into the rear spoiler.
The car sits on a set of Oxigin-Oxrock wheels sized 8.5-by-20 inches up front with tires sized 265/30R20, and 11-by-20 inches with 305/25R20 on the rear axle.
Since its appearing about seven years ago, the Audi R8 has been an eye catcher – always and everywhere. The mid-engine sports car made by quattro GmbH at Neckarsulm, Germany, was able to convince even professional pessimists, “playing” today even so undeterred as also merited in the automobile fourth division, in one range with other big brands.
The REGULA Tuning company at Schwerte, Germany, well known for their professionally made, very sturdy and without exceptions perfectly fitting tuning parts, has now equipped a face lifted Audi R8 V10 Spyder by a body kit completely made out of the high class material carbon – consisting of front and rear apron and side skirts. The price for this masterpiece of handicraft precision amounts up to 7,950.00 Euro. Besides aerodynamics optimization, the R8 is now also somewhat faster, more sportive. And on the rear part of this bolide, besides the superb exhaust end pipes in stovepipe-diameter, the firmly integrated rear spoiler merits especially to be mentioned. By the way, this R8-special made by REGULA Tuning body kit is available for all coupé- and Spyder models, as well as for all exhaust variations (V8, V10, V10 GT and V10 Facelift).
In terms of engine technics, the REGULA-R8 has nothing new to propose, which means nothing else, as that the drivers must be content with the serial 525 HP (= 386 kW), but, nevertheless, this should not be very difficult, particularly because the not always very simple part as seam between car and road has been carried over to a set of Oxigin-Oxrock rims, namely in 8,5 x 20” with tires 265/30-20 on the front axle and in 11 x 20” with 305/25-20 on the rear axle.
