Big German luxury and performance.
Senner Tuning has had quite a bit of fun boosting Audi’s performance models such as the S5 and S4s along with a few RS variants sprinkled in between. Now, they set their sights on the big Audi A8 and gave it more oomph to go along with its understated design and presence.
The team at Senner Tuning didn’t go over-the-top designing all sorts of aerodynamic upgrades and adding in carbon fiber doodads everywhere to create a sportier exterior. Instead, they kept things simple and tried to subtly enhance the Audi A8’s presence through a newly upgraded stance. The factory wheel and tire setup was swapped out for a set of 10.0 x 22 Oxigin14 Oxrock wheels wearing a Black Full Polish finish and 265/30 R22 Continental Sport Contact 3 tires for added grip. The new shoes were then complemented by a new KW DLC lowering module for the air suspension that can be controlled via iPhone app thanks to a WLAN module.
Powering the featured Audi A8 is the tried-and-true 4.2-liter naturally-aspirated V-8 engine that pumps out a healthy amount of power in factory form. However, Senner Tuning knew they could squeeze out some extra muscle with the addition of two sport air filter inserts, a power converter, ECU tune, and an in-house stainless steel exhaust system with pre-muffler and 100 mm tailpipes. These goodies help increase output up to 397 horsepower and 352 lb-ft. of torque and give the A8 a meaner exhaust note.
The only other upgrades to the mighty A8 was a set of red-painted brake calipers and new LED license plate lighting.
The full conversion kit for the Audi A8 from Senner Tuning is currently available as an entire package for 9,500 Euros. Customers can also opt for individual accessories as well.
