Sitting behind the driver in the stock R8 5.2 is a high-revving V-10 that produces a whopping 525 horsepower. This wasn’t enough for wheelsandmore however, who decided it was necessary to upgrade the ECU and bring output to an impressive 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft. of torque. Also contributing to the 65 horsepower, 200 lb-ft. of torque increase in the wheelsandmore R8 is a new handmade stainless steel full exhaust system with controllable valve flaps that allow for a bold or subdued exhaust note.
The mid-engine layout of the wheelsandmore R8 gives the sportscar a superb weight distribution and predictable handling dynamics. To further enhance the car’s agility, wheelsandmore has fitted new lightweight wheels and adjustable suspension components. Multi-spoke three-piece C-Sport wheels are installed and available in a virtually unlimited number of different colors and finishes. Up front, the 9 x 20 C-Sport wheels wear 235/30/20 Continental Sport Contact III tires, while the 11 x 20 wheels fitted to the rear axle are shod in 295/25/20 tires. The increased grip is further improved with the addition of KW race coilovers with adjustable rebound and compression.
