Luxury Cars: Ok, so you can't wait to get the new Audi R8 V10? Today you have a new alternative: the new customization program from Wheels And More! This kit includes a new ECU tweaking (priced at ?1,700) which gives and extra 30hp, but also a new compressor kit that really boosts the vehicle from 450 to an impressive 530 hp (also the price for this kit is impressive: ?32,500). Due to the power increase you will also need a new braking system, with 8 pistons on the front and 6 on the rear, priced at ?14,000. The tuner also offers a new rear silencer, providing an additional sporty sound (for an extra ?900, this system can be activated through a remote control). According to AutoWeek, a race chassis with aluminium parts costs about ?4,000 while a new suspension kit which lowers the car with up to 30 mm is priced at ?8,950. For a front lip spoiler and a carbon fiber air diffuser you'll have to pay ?5,500 while for the new set of 20-inch alloy wheels fitted with Dunlop Sport Maxx rubbers, you need ?9,250. Looking at these prices, in our opinion it would be better to wait and buy the new Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI Quattro.
