Judging this tuning package on the project name alone would lead anyone to believe that Project Kahn had worked on another kit for the Audi R8. Take a close look at the images provided and any Audi lover will tell you that this is simply not the case. Although the vehicle you see before does come with the face of an R8, the body actually belongs to its younger brother, the Audi TT

The TR8 project seems to be the kind of project that could provide any TT owner a chance to look like a baller without actually spending the cash needed to back it up. The package started with a 2.0 FSI Audi TT and then escalated with the use of new front and back vented bumpers with mesh inserts and a new front grille fashioned to look like the ones found on the R8. What really makes the tuning package are the R8 style side blades that we guess, at a quick glance, can make a small number of people think they just saw an R8 go by. Other additions to the exterior are a new rear spoiler, a stainless steel quad exhaust system, sports lowered suspension springs, and a front lower bumper lip and door mirrors in a billet steel finish to match the dark gray exterior paint of the Audi. The shiny factor is taken care of with a new set of 20" RSV alloy wheels. For further customization, the TR8’s interior can be altered using a complete bespoke interior design service available to suit individual tastes.

A lot of work was put into the exterior of the car, but that’s where the similarities - if you can really call them that - to the R8 end. The TR8 is simply all bark and no bite with only 200 HP and 207lb-ft of torque coming out of the 2.0L FSI TT engine which is a far cry from the R8’s 430 HP and 317 lb-ft of torque.

Well, the packaged of this TR8 is really quite impressive but not its engine. I just don’t think that it would give a nice speed performance on that output. I think they should boost it more.

I would agree on that one. I also like the packages of the car. The car is tuned impressive by Project Khan. The engine performance which is a bit changed makes a big difference. I wonder who will be its competitors.

The car look so sporty and its good thing that this tuning company have offer an engine upgrade in the package of the car.

Project Kahn has made an impressive modification in the exterior of the car. The boost in the speed performance of the car is quite amazing as well!

Indeed, the standard TR8 engine would actually be more than enough for this one. But I think it would have been better if they have tweaked the engine a bit.

Well, come to think of it, this one really doesn’t need an engine upgrade at all. After all, it is a TR8, the engine on this baby is pretty powerful and more than makes up for that aspect.

As expected, Kahn didn’t even touch the engine on this one, which is starting to really get annoying. I mean, how much work does it really need to put in some engine tweaks here?

As always, Kahn really makes an already good looking car even better. I like the color that they used for the body, plus that white trim on the sides actually turns out to be rather perfect.

Aesthetically,it really looks like a Audi r8 which is good actually. I love it especially
the figure performance of this car. I wan to read more updates about this production.
And i hope I could test drive one of this!

Its a good thing that Audi choose to collaborate with their own model. I would say that Audi r8 and TT are quite successful brand. Still, I don’t know on how will the car perform but I think it would be powerful.
