German auto design house PPI launched its new company name and a new Audi R8 -based Razor Spyder GTR model this weekend at Pebble Beach Concours week. PPI is now called PPI Speed Design , and to go with the new name is this hot open-air conversion kit for both the V-8 and V-10 R8 supercars.
Marked out by freer breathing for the induction and exhaust, the most notable element of the Razor Spyder is the open-air door cutouts that make every day a breezy California summer.
Cut from aluminum and reinforced with carbon fiber, the door cutouts promise a spectacular view of the road and create a cockpit that feels open and free like a track day special or the Aston Martin CC100 speedster. Lacking weatherproofing (or side windows) to provide these interesting cockpit vents, the PPI “Spyder Doors” take the R8 V-10 Spyder ’s drama level and performance level - then cranks it up to "11."
The full complement of PPI Speed Design carbon-fiber styling and aerodynamic tweaks are included on the prototype seen above, which also features a custom satin matte blue paint and contrast black features for the side air ducts and a giant dual intake scoop behind the passenger headrests.
The result is certainly dramatic in a way that most modified R8’s are not, with giant virgin gold painted brake calipers and a GT3-inspired front air dam looking amazing with the latest LED headlights from the latest R8 Audi design.
