Liberty Walk’s Audi R8 Spyder PURRs With New Wheels

Whether you like them or detest them, it seems that Liberty Walk’s flashy upgrades are here to stay, with the latest example to receive them being an Audi R8 Spyder in Thailand.

The kit include the usual fender add-ons in addition to some front and rear modifications, and a new suspension. Apparently, the owner of this R8 Spyder wanted more, so he turned to Infinite Motorsport, a local PUR dealer, for a new set of rims.

After viewing the collection, he eventually chose the ‘Luxury Series I’ LX04, which are engineered from aerospace-grade 6061-T6 forged aluminum, in 9×19- and 12.5×20-inches size front and rear respectively. With an extended concave profile, the wheels are powder coated with a matte anthracite face and gloss anthracite lip and have a forged carbon composite center cap.

Despite gaining extra head-turning points, we’re not sure if these mods have in any way affected the performance of the Audi R8 Spyder, which needs 3.5 seconds for the 0-60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration in the 540 HP base version, and 3.2 seconds in the 601 HP Plus, both of which are powered by a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10.

    Liberty Walk company should be renamed to “Boring Bolted Fenders”. Every single car from them has exactly the same so called visual tuning as all their cars before, but everybody is still panting how awesome it is…

      That’s their style of modifications. It appeals to different people.

        Repeating exactly the same thing over and over again is not really a style… And I’m not saying that it does not look good on some cars, but it’s like they can’t do anything else. They are just putting on the same fenders, regardless of the actual style of the car.

      Every car they modified looks like a stanced backyard garage tuning special. It’s a tasteless disgusting insult to the original designers.

    Wow that’s tacky! I would hope anybody with sufficient good taste to purchase an R8 Spyder would steer clear of such Pep Boys style “upgrades”.

    burn it with fire..twice.

    Hideous. If this were in front of my house, I’d have it towed.

  • ErnieB

    Looks like an first gen TT now… ugly

  • jsz00

    Can this car turn at high speed corners? Or even any corners at all?

  • cooper

    Wow, that is hilarious looking.

  • Major Lee Gassole

    Their *yawn* mods look okay on some cars, but not this one.
