Prior Design Audi R8 GT850 is Modern Automotive Art
British tuning group Prior Design has worked their magic on a range of vehicles, including the Ford Mustang, Porsche Panamera, BMW 1M, among others. While each individual work is impressive on its own, their most recent design deserves a spot at Paris' le Louvre. Officially dubbed the Audi R8 GT850, this one-of-a-kind R8 body design mimics the hardcore, stripped down racing version R8 GT3, complete with a revised front fascia, a new carbon fiber splitter and an upgraded intake.
Other bits include a roof mounted intake scoop, aerodynamic side skirts, optional ADV.1 20-inch wheels and a rear bumper, diffuser and a wing designed for space flight. The whole shabangabang.
Although the base package is limited to aesthetics, for a bit of extra dough, customers can request a sports exhaust system and the 4.2-liter V8 tuned to a hefty 475- or 565-hp, depending on whether you like to have fun or a lot of fun.
