Audi A5 by Hofele-Design: Audi R8 Wannabe

Albeit less extreme than the R8 themed bodykit on the TT (see here) that we saw at the Geneva Show last March, Hofele-Design’s proposition for the A5 tries to imitate the lines of Audi’s supercar on both ends of the car. Key word here of course is “tries” – we didn’t say that Hofele-Design actually manages to succeed… However, if this “light” R8 themed bodykit tickles your senses learn that it can be combined with Hofele-Design’s 200-inch alloy wheels “Largo-RS 20” with tires 255/30 R 20. -Continued

Press Release Hofele-Design A5

Audi-tuner Hofele-Design has developed a new design concept for the Audi A5 Coupe. Part of this new design concept are the front & rear bumper made of the high-quality material PKG with big air intakes. The used lamella mesh reminds of the lines of the new Audi R8 and gives the A5 Coupe a more aggressive look. The front was designed more rounder as on the original A5.

Striking are the big oval tailpipes which are integrated into the rear bumper. A flat rear spoiler on the trunk snuggles against the car body. The side skirts with air intakes stretch the sidelines of the car.

As tire-wheel combination the Hofele-Design alloy wheel “Largo-RS 20” in the size 9Jx20 inch is mounted along with tires in the size 255/30 R 20. The chassis is lowered 40mm, the tracks are broadened.

Thanks to an electronically booster kit, the serial output of 240 hp and 500 Nm of the 3.0 TDI can be increased to over 280 hp and 580 Nm. Price of the kit is 1.150,- Euro. An interior concept including carbon, exotic woods and leather is also under development at the moment.

As usual all parts are being mounted to the original points of attachment. This is easy-going, fast and requires no modifications to the car at all. All parts are available this autumn and are of course TÜV approved.

Audi-tuner Hofele-Design is the specialist for all types of Audi especially the luxury-class like A8, Q7 and R8 and has business partners in 21 countries all over the world.
