The German power house Senner Tuning has just released a new customization program for the Audi R8 super car. Their kit turns the high performance mid engine sports car into a true Super Sport machine. By adding what most may feel are a few simple upgrades when looked at individually, but when joined together they work to improve upon every aspect of the R8’s attitude. Starting out with what we can’t see, Senner has replaced the paper air filters with a set of sport filters that flow more air and allow the re calibrated ECU to do what it does, pumping out 458 HP. Spent gasses are then spit out of Senner’s custom high performance exhaust complete with adjustable valve control to keep tones under control when necessary and then open to reveal a true super car bark.
As far as making the Quattro driven Audi R8 handle even better than the factory version, Senner has upgraded the stiff stuff with an adjustable sport suspension that not only lowers the Audi’s center of gravity, but just like the exhaust system, it too can adapt to any situation. However it is where the rubber meets the road that can make the biggest difference, so Senner has upgraded the R8 with a set of staggered 20 inch rims wrapped in sticky Dunlop SportMaxx tires. For only 14,900.00 Euros Senner Tuning will transform your own R8 into a Super Sport model as well.
