The Audi R8 GT has been getting a lot of face time this week - thank Audi’s "R8 GT Week" for that - and the news just keeps on coming.

German tuning firm, Wheelsandmore, has introduced their latest take on the powerful Audi supercar featuring a few styling makeovers, an improved performance set-up, and a swanky name - the Supersport Edition - that hammers home all the changes that came with it.

As far as the visual details on the car, Wheelsandmore limited the changes to a new set of 20" matte black coated lightweight wheels wrapped in Continental Sport Contact 5P tires to go with a new remote-controlled hydraulic lift system that can add 40 mm to the supercar’s ride height. The seemingly bare changes on the car’s detailing is more than made up for by an impressive performance upgrade that features a new electronic set-up and the addition of a handcrafted, stainless-steel exhaust system that’s 40 lbs lighter and comes with its own remote-controlled valve flaps. With these modifications set-up on the car, the output from the 5.2-liter V10 engine has spiked from the standard 560 horsepower and 398 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 611 horsepower and 431 lb/ft of torque.

The added output also resulted in a faster 0-60 mph time for the R8 GT - 3.6 seconds to 3.3 seconds - and a higher top speed of 208 mph, up from the ’standard’ model’s top speed of 198 mph.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

It seems that Audi having a lot of new cars this year. By the way, the car is pretty awesome. The look of the car is very sporty, and the added performance is better. The name really fits for this car because it is a powerful one having V10 engine and the top speed is increased by 10 mph!

I’m really impressed with the work of Wheelsandmore for they have modified and boost the performance of the car into an impressive amount of power! Aside from that, Wheelsandmore has makes the styling and design of the car more sporty.

Yeah, this is what I’m talking about. The lighter tyres that was used in this vehicle decreases the weight of the car for sure! Well, it’s a good thing that the V10 technology here can deliver up to 611 horsepower and 431 lb/ft of torque. For sure this car would be more speedy compare to the standard version.
