Liberty Walk strikes again, only this time with a more down-to-earth Audi S5.
Even with the naturally-aspirated, 4.2-litre V8 at its disposal, the Audi S5 doesn’t appeal to the exotic side of the automotive world. Its body – sketched by Walter de Silva – is governed by the familiar Teutonic-look that won’t break any design barriers, thus making it a less incisive option for Liberty Walk’s style.
Still, its well-defined, balanced proportions seem to adopt the Japanese wide-body kit with ease, although some may argue that the visual “improvements” do spoil the vehicle’s overall simple design style.
As you’d expect, Liberty Walk doesn’t surprise anymore with its unique approach, as the S5 – like all of the LB Performance-signed products – bears the same widened style offered by the fender flares. One thing is for sure, though; the German beast looks terribly great with a widened stance (just like a DTM racer). But don’t you think for a moment that the model doesn’t come with its own subtly-unique visual enhancements, as the minute bumper lips and side skirts make the car seem lower and more planted.
We’ve got to admit, not much is happening with the car visual-wise, but it’s enough to completely transform the car. LB didn’t offer additional info for pricing (or performance upgrades) as the S5 is still a preview of things to come.
We’re eager to see how the “real-life” variant will look like and if it will sport smaller flares, since the ones on this CGI version seems to cover the place where the fuel filler cap used to be.
