German tuner Wheelsandmore is back, and they’re returning with yet another impressive tuning program. This time for the limited-run Audi R8 GT Spyder.

Since the German super car is only limited to 333 units, the fact that it gets its own tuning program ramps up the exclusivity to a whole new level. The whole onus of the program was to make the R8 GT Spyder lighter and more powerful, a task that’s easier said than done.

In order to accomplish it, Wheelsandmore prepared a special performance package that includes a lighter stainless steel exhaust system with remote-able valve flaps that’s 40% lighter than the standard equipment. Add that to special carbon-frame air filters and a reprogrammed ECU that nets a new output of 620 horsepower and 435 lb/ft of torque, and you have an R8 GT Spyder that’s even more special than the rest of its special edition brethren.

Suspension was also an important part of the program. In this case, Wheelsandmore fitted the German super car with the latest state-of-the-art motorsports technology from KW-Automotive within the LCS (level-control-system) hydraulic lift up system. There’s also a remote control switch that provides an additional road clearance of +40mm and a separate and independently adjustable rebound- and compression damping, giving the owner free reign over his super car’s suspension set-up.

Finally, there are the handcrafted 3-piece ultralight forged 6Sporz² wheels that can be customized and finished according to the customer’s whims. The wheels are then wrapped in a set of Continental Sport Contact 5P tires.

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 More

Don’t forget to mention its striking wheels. Oh, how I love to have this at the soonest!

I like the red brake caliper which is the same color used in Lamborghini Bianco Rosso.

Wheelsandmore successfully tuned Mercedes SL, Mercedes63 AMG, Aston Martin DB9, and now this Audi R8 GT Spyder. We can expect that every tuning program they applied, it will make the production model better.

Since it’s been tuned by Wheelsandmore, it’s expected to give better results and performance.

Boosting ponies is an expected result of the tuning program by Wheelsandmore. I hope they’ll apply their latest design on it.

Wheelsandmore are making the heat rise once again. And now they are on Spyder, I expect that to be more powerful and strange like their former developed Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione that from the standard 450HP, and they tuned it up to have extra 20HP for a total of 470HP.
