The R8 gets real in your face.
JMS Fahrzeugteile has been making body kits and plugging in aftermarket upgrades for German sports cars for quite some time. Now, they’re teaming up with CT Exclusive and the first result of this collaboration comes in the form of a flashy Audi R8 V8/V10 body kit that will undoubtedly turn heads.
The team at JMS and CT Exclusive didn’t want the Audi R8 to go unnoticed or slip through traffic with its modern factory design. The duo created a new body kit that reflects the performance of the supercar with a number of visual aids at the front, rear, and sides.
The new styling kit has been designed to fit the Audi R8 V-8, and V-10 powered models along with the new facelifted design. The kit includes a massive set of front air intakes on the new bumper surrounded by red striping, resembling some sort of lipstick. Two air intakes on either side of the bumper draw air into the wheel wells to cool the brakes. Along each side, new skirts visually lower the supercar and mimic the side blade intake design that the R8 is known for. At the rear sits a fat bumper with integrated five-blade diffuser. The bumper sports a number of vents to keep the rear brakes and engine cool as the R8 speeds down the road. A new spoiler setup is also worn at the rear for better downforce.
Protruding from the rear of the Audi R8 are new exhaust tips as part of the Capristo exhaust system that includes a racing muffler with valve control. Customers that don’t want to hear the full power of their mid-mounted engine can opt for the standard exhaust tips from the facelifted factory Audi R8 V10.
To match the powerful and commanding looks of the new body kit, the team at JMS and CT Exclusive installed a new set of Oxigin 14 wheels that are finished in gunmetal grey with red highlights. The five-spoke wheels measure 9.0 x 20 at both axles and wear 235/35/20 front and 305/25/20 rear tires. Behind the color-matched wheels sits a new KW Variant 3 coilover kit that lowers the ride height down for a clean stance.
All of the upgrades are currently available from JMS Fahrzeugteile and CT Exclusive and fit the Audi R8 V8 and V10 models including the facelifted design. The full body kit can be purchased for 8,900 Euros and comes with a free spoiler. The KW coilovers can be had for 3,599 Euros, while the wheel and tire setup starts at 3,400 Euros.
