The Audi R8 is one of the most customized supercars on the planet and true to form, another aftermarket company has taken the German car and given a pretty distinctive styling kit. The body kit is called ’Toxique,’ and features full carbon fiber panels.

According to the German tuning company, the Toxique body kit comes with a new front bumper with enormous air intakes, flared wheel arches, new side skirts, mirror caps, a rear bumper with large vents, a rear diffuser, and an optional large rear wing. Other modifications done on the R8’s exterior include the fitting of a new adjustable suspension system from H&R, a new stainless exhaust, and a new set of 20" wheels.

Then there’s the interior, which has been fitted with its own share of carbon fiber enhancements on the seats, dashboard, center console, door panels, side sills, and, of course, the steering wheel.

The whole program is currently being offered at a price of €16,800, which is around $22,660 based on current exchange rates. If that’s a little out of your price range, TC Concepts is offering a similar program, one built on a combination of carbon and fiber glass, for "just" €9,800 ($13,200).

One thing we realized about TC Concepts’ ’Toxique’ body kit is that nothing about it is subtle. For our part, we’d prefer something a little less audacious, although we’re confident that a lot of people will have different opinions on the matter.

@harry_bright: Really ? Does having a low stands can give more appeal ? I don’t think so.

I love how low this Audi stands. It gives more appeal to the car itself in addition to that the body kit is very sporty.

Its initial picture is truly a teaser! I really can’t wait for the official one! smiley Moreover, I think it should be more impressive if they use a better engine than with V10 only.

Well, good thing as well that they justify the fact that it is a sports vehicle! Nice engine anyway! smiley Moreover, the exterior modification of this R8 is absolutely perfect on this, and I will surely wait for the production of it.

No doubt, that this concept vehicle of Audi R8 is really a good-looking race car, and it looks so elegant either on its sleek metallic body paint. The engine output was great also, but I hope that they truly had the plan to put it on the market.

This new R8 is absolutely looks so cool with its abstract design! Well, I must say that among all R8 vehicles, this is the most attractive! smiley Anyway, I’m sure that its engine could already give a nice speed on it.

One of the best concept vehicles from Audi! smiley I just wonder if until when it became a concept? Well, I can’t wait to see this one on the race track, and I’m sure it would truly have a nice speed because of its engine.

I love the angst that this R8 concept had! Well, the modification of this vehicle is really looking great with it, but I wonder if they also did some updates on its interior? Anyway, I’m still impressed with its engine output.

This Toxique of Audi is looking so strikingly with its new looks! I love that this one had and although the engine output that they use on it is really good enough it, there is still lots of race car out there which is more powerful than with this one.
