Schmidt Audi R8 2014 wallpaper TUNER WHEELS for the Audi R8The Germans most treasured possession is their cars. A unique and outstanding example of a German supercar caught the eye of the automotive photographer Jordi Miranda last month, the unmistakeable Audi R8. Any car enthusiast wouldn’t notice the extensive modification to this sportscar. To ordinary folk the car might catch their eye for its outstanding paint job, but we are sure at second glance the extensive modifications on this car will be noticed.

The Audi R8 wasn’t only lowered into the tarmacs but is also expanded to more than 2 meters in width. The front fenders and the rear valance are individually designed and built in small batch. The aim is an outstanding car design – made to order. Wide body transformations with their spacious wheel arches will be filled with matching wheel- and tire conversions.

MTM S3 2.0 TFSI Quattro: Adds Value at The Wheel and on The Road

MTM Audi S3 2.0 TFSI Quattro 2014 Front Angle MTM S3 2.0 TFSI Quattro: Adds Value at The Wheel and on The RoadThe MTM system has heritage – and spins stories. The heritage is based on MTM boss Roland Mayers’ simple philosophy: cars leaving his performance centre are sporty, super and superior. The stories written about cars after their fitness makeover at MTM tell of victories and records. And an Audi S3 is no exception. Be it a Cabriolet, Saloon or Sportback, the Wettstetten-based manufacturer, right next door to the ingenious Audi brains trust, follows a perfect recipe. It makes sporty Audis and other Volkswagen Group products even sportier and more assured. And what the experienced MTM mechanic needs to achieve this is an M-Cantronic plus 1.5 hours for the modification. The ex-works 300 hp TFSi four-cylinder engine responds powerfully to the new engine management system: 360 hp and 450 Nm of torque make for massive thrust: 4.8 seconds and the sprint from zero to 100 km/h is history, with the electronics kicking in again at 250 km/h to curb further forward momentum. The appropriate gear ratio at any point is selected in the traditional manner on a six-speed manual gearbox. Read the rest of this entry »
