Audi Performance Parts Take R8 And TT RS To New Heights

Audi has answered the call from enthusiasts asking for more personalization options for the R8 and TT RS by introducing a selection of bold new performance parts for the two models.

The parts, available individually and initially in Germany from late summer 2017, have a transformative effect on the exterior of both models, adding a significant amount of aggression to two vehicles that when left standard, are far from subtle. Additionally, they look to improve the performance of the two models. Funny that.

Starting with the R8, the visual parts make it look more like a race car than a road car and start at the front end with a new splitter and dual canards on either side of the bumper. Aggressive? Yep. Subtle? Definitely not.

Elsewhere, Audi has created a set of custom 20-inch black wheels for the supercar and complemented them with new side skirts. At the rear, there is a huge carbon fiber wing with swan neck uprights, an ultra-aggressive diffuser and new carbon fins on the sides of the bumper.

As for the TT RS, its available aerodynamic parts closely mimic those available for its bigger, more powerful and more expensive sibling. As such, the front is characterized by canards, a new splitter and a set of bespoke air intake surrounds. A new hood is also available.

The extreme theme then continues to the sides with wheels identical to those of the R8 and distinct skirts. Completing the available modifications are new matte gold exhaust tips, a carbon rear wing and a new diffuser.

Customers of both the TT and R8 will also have the option of two- or three-way coilover suspension systems and new brake lines.

    That’s what I’m talking about. Those wheels are gorgeous and the other elements bring much-needed aggression to the TT-RS, particularly.

      Agreed, the TT-RS definitely looks the part of the “Mini-R8”

    The R8 looks great, it reminds me of the old V10 GT. The TT-RS on the other hand is a bit too much, and red surely doesn’t help it.
