This isn’t Prior Design’s first go-around with the Audi R8, but their tuning packages for the beautiful sports car just keep getting better and better. Their latest package can be applied to both V8 and V10 versions and adds a noticeable look and spectacular driving performance to the already stunning sports car.
The PD-GT850 tuning kit transforms the standard R8 into a brutal racing style car with an entirely revised front end. There’s a new front apron and an integrated carbon spoiler, as well as two air inlet covers with two carbon struts each and an integrated air outlet with four plates for better engine cooling.
The most noticeable thing about the PD-GT850 kit is that it transforms the R8 into a much wider car with the use of new front mudguards and wide, carbon fiber alternative side covers. The side of the car has also received aerodynamically formed side sills with four LED lamps. The package ends with a massive rear spoiler and a new rear apron with an integrated carbon diffuser and lateral air inlets. These changes will set customers back a total of 24,900 euro, or about $32,200 at the current exchange rates. For an additional 9,900 euro (about $12,800 at the current rates), the tuner will also add a new set of 3-part, 20″ ADV1 Concave-wheels with Continental tires (265/30R20 for the front and 325/25R20 for the rear).
Engine modifications can also be had with the PD GT850 program, including a special sports exhaust system with flap control for an extra 2,699 euro (about $3,500 at current rates) and an increased power output to 475 HP from 420 HP for 5,900 euro (about $7,600 at current rates). Customers can get more power by opting for the compressor conversion which will net them an even more impressive 565 HP. Pricing for that conversion has not been released.
