Wheelsandmore Audi R8 GT Supersport
Wheelsandmore presents their weight- and performance optimized conversion of the actual Audi R8 GT, called “Supersport Edition”.
As the Ingolstadt-based engineers already saved about 100kgs of total weight and increased the power of the V10 aggregate up to 560hp at the limited edition with just 333 copies comparing to serial model, Wheelsandmore promptly strikes back.
With this simple-sounding formula, the Wheelsandmore engineers developed a special performance package for the Audi R8GT. Not only the sound, but also the throughput and the weight of the standard exhaust system should be optimized. The result is a 40% lighter system with remoteable valve flaps, handcrafted of finest stainless steel. Combined with the specially tuned electronics the dyno testing certifies the luxury tuner brutal 611 hp and 585 Nm of torque. Wheelsandmore specifies the top speed at 335 km/h and the acceleration sprint from 0-100 km/h is now done within 3.3 seconds.
With installing their handcrafted 3-piece forged wheels the tuner achieved a much sportier look without affecting the weight negatively compared to the serial forged wheels. The matte black coated lightweight wheels are sizing 9.5x20 inches in front, combined with 245/30/20 Continental Sport Contact 5P tires and 11.0x20 inches at the rear with 295/25/20 Conti tires, fitting absolutely perfect to the body of the sport coupé.
Perfect suspension performance is realized due to latest state-of-the-art motorsports technology from KW-Automotive within the LCS (level-control-system) hydraulic lift up system. With a remote control switch the system provides an additional road clearance (+40mm) to avoid expensive damaging. The separate and independently adjustable rebound- and compression damping allows an individual setup for different uses and preferences.
