Audi A8 ‘SR 8’ by Hofele Design

Donzdorf-based tuning specialist, Hofele Design, has created the SR 8 package for Audi’s current A8 – its interpretation of how an RS 8 model might look.

If the face of this car looks familiar, that’s because Hofele based those massive intakes and silver lower lip on the RS 5’s. It even uses Audi factory mesh. Around the rear there’s a discreet boot lid spoiler and lower apron with an integrated diffuser, which frames the new quad tailpipes. A pair of carbon mirror covers can also be ordered.

Hofele offers a range of alloys wheels, sized 9 and 10×20 inches, while the speed-related electronic lowering module controls the air suspension, allowing it to drop the A8 up to 40 mm – when travelling below 70 km/h (43 mph). Anything above that speed and the ride height returns to factory level – to maintain “comfort and security.”

Inside the cabin, there’s two-tone, quilted seats, finished in nappa leather, or a combination of leather and Alcantara. The door panels and steering wheel also receive a covering of hide.

Finally, hofele can offer engine management tweaks, taking both the 4.2 V8 FSI and its diesel-slurping sibling, the 4.2 TDI CR up to 385 hp. The TDI also produces a mighty 664 lb/t of torque.
