Liberty Walk Dresses Up First-Gen Audi R8

Although the R8 is 10 years old, – its overall design still looks fresh even by today standards; why, even Audi didn’t mess with it that much for its second generation.

Yet Liberty Walk decided it was time it spiced it up a bit and fitted a wide-body kit.

Composed of hand-finished moldings, it makes the R8 look like a racer and is available in either Carbon Fiber or Glass-Reinforced Plastic (GRP). Both offerings are identical in appearance, but the carbon fiber one can be commissioned “naked”, that is sans paint, which can open new possibilities to a wide array of customization options.

Owners can choose to either order the complete kit, which includes everything from bumpers to widened fenders, or any part individually.

The Carbon fiber body kit carries a £14,413 ($20,493) price tag for the for the V8 and a £15,480 ($22,008) for the V10, while the standard CFRP package for the V10 goes for £13,066 ($18,578).

    I think the red R8 looks brutal! 22 grand is a bargain.

    i like liberty walk customs, just not already wide bodied cars.

    I think you meant GRP is $18k ?

    This vehicle was originally a fine-tuned machine ready for track use straight from the factory. With these mods, the tires are creating friction against the inner fenders and the contact patch of the rear tires (most evident on the red car) is reduced with that camber. Assuming this thing has adjustable air suspension installed, an optimal weight total is affected as well. This is essentially a neutered race car. Like plucking strategic feathers from a bird of prey so that it cannot escape captivity. This is reminiscent of the orange Supra from the first The Fast and the Furious film. At the time those specific car mods may have seemed like the right thing to do, but in the end you’ve devalued a classic the Toyota factory no longer produces for the sake of vanity. Liberty Walk is a serial offender in committing crimes of tackiness and assault on otherwise functional vehicles.
