Restyling a classic Audi.
The Audi A8 D2 was a major step for the German automaker in the executive sedan segment. The car was the first to feature the Audi Space Frame aluminum monocoque that lowered weight and retained structural rigidity. The A8 was also a worthy competitor to the likes of the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz W140.
JMS Tuning has unveiled a styling program for the classic Audi that gives it a more aggressive appearance with a design stuck in the 1990’s. Called the “Racelook Aerodynamic Kit”, the package features bodywork that improves downforce and high speed stability while giving the A8 a unique look.
The front of the JMS Audi A8 D2 styling kit features a redesigned apron with a larger spoiler and integrated fog lights. Each side of the A8 can be fitted with new JMS Tuning side skirts for better airflow around the car. The kit also equips the rear with a large, and somewhat odd-looking fascia with dual exhaust cutouts and middle square design.
Accompanying the unique body kit are new wheels and a lowered suspension for better overall driving performance. The original wheels were replaced with modern 8.5 x 20 Audi five double-spoke wheels and 245/30/20 tires. The Audi A8 was then lowered by 50 mm at the front and 40 mm at the rear through the use of a KW variant one coilover kit.
All of the upgrades for the JMS Tuning Audi A8 D2 are currently available. The front bumper is priced at € 239 (+/- 310 USD), the side skirts at € 249 (+/- 323 USD), and the rear fascia at € 239 (+/- 310 USD). The KW coilover kit can be purchased for € 1,119 (+/- 1,400 USD). All components come with TUV certification.
