German tuner Graf Weckerle has released details and pictures of its new rendition of the Audi R8. The most distinctive feature of the package is that set of ultra-light multi-piece forged 20″ rims, fitted with in 245/30 R 20 and 305/25 R 20 tyres. Consisting of a highly-polished centre with gloss black rim, other finishes available include matte, rough ultra-matte or gloss painted centres, while the rims can be either pure metal, hand-polished or brushed.
Performance upgrades performed by the Karlsruhe-based specialist include a remapped ECU and a new stainless steel exhaust system with remotely controlled flaps and matte ceramic tips, which would boost the output of the standard 5.2-litre V8 unit up to 455 hp, while the factory suspension has made way for a fully adjustable, aluminum coilover set-up which is available with or without magnetic ride damping system. It almost goes without saying that the progressive coilover suspension improves both handling and aesthetics of the car.
