Audi R8 by Graf Weckerle

Karlsruhe-based customizer Graf Weckerle has released details of its new Collection Sport range and created this anthracite Audi R8 project to display its wares.

The company’s Sport wheels displayed are ultra-lightweight, multi-piece forged items, sized 9 and 11 x 20-inches and wrapped in 245/30 R 20 and 305/25 R 20 tyres. Consisting of a highly-polished centre with gloss black rim, other finishes available include matte, rough ultra-matte or gloss painted centres, while the rims can be either pure metal, hand-polished or brushed. Personally, we’d avoid wheels with black rims as they tend to make the overall diameter appear smaller than it actually is. The only other visual change is the two shades of anthracite applied to the R8’s body and Graf Weckerle’s logos on the sideblades.

Performance upgrades consist of a remapped ECU and stainless steel exhaust system with remote controlled flaps and matte ceramic tips, allowing the 5.2-litre V8 to produce 355 kW (455 hp), while the factory suspension has made way for a fully adjustable, aluminium coilover set-up.
