When it comes to tuning the Audi R8 , it’s the V8 version that gets most of the attention. Generally, this is because tuners try to update it to the same power level as the V10 version. This time, however, German tuner XXX Performance took on the challenge of working on the R8 5.2 V10 FSI and provided a complete upgrade package.
The exterior of the Audi R8 V10 by XXX is special in its own right because it’s not every day you have the chance to see a green R8. The tuner combined a real eye-catching bilious green with a carbon foil finish on the side blades and the exterior rear-view mirrors, while the front grille and the headlamps were painted in black. Next, the tuner added a new set of 20" Oxigin 14-Oxrock rims that are fitted with foils to match the bodywork. The new wheels also come with an H&R coilover kit that allows a massive lowering of the vehicle. The interior has been wrapped in fine Alcantara and real leather in a carbon fiber look with white seams.
The best part of the upgrade is the power upgrade provided to the sports car. XXX Performance opted to optimize the engine software and added a BMC carbon air-box as well as a high-end sports exhaust system with Bluetooth flap control system. The result is an amazing 650 HP - up from the standard 525 HP.
