We’ve seen lots of wild tuning - like the crazy Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 by SR Hamann Renaissance - but sometimes crazed attention go-getters take the idea of being able to choose your own color scheme a bit too far. They don’t opt for the usual matte black, matte white, dull gray, or even pink; they go for something very much like this purple chess board debacle. We are not sure why this particular customer asked German tuner, Dartz, to do something like this to his Audi R8, but our guess is that this guy either loves chess and grapes or has a sick sense of humor. We hate to break it to him, but the joke is most certainly on him!

Of course, no changes were made under the hood because the customer was way too busy thinking of a way to leave a void in his sex life. We think he’ll manage with the standard 420hp found in the Audi though.

Were it not for the Lamborghini concept and a raft of lighter lotus cars, i’d be a lot more stoked for this. Still.. great job Audi.
