Rieger Tuning Audi A4 debuts at Tuning World Bodensee

Posted on 5 May, 2008

German based car customizer and bodykit specialist Rieger Tuning has presented a new styling and performance upgrade for the new B8 Audi A4 saloon at this week’s Tuning World Bodensee event in Germany. The Rieger A4 is a saloon redesigned for daily use with a kick and manages to keep the understated good looks of the standard model while also adding a touch of aggression.

This is helped in part by the addition of a new front-lip spoiler, sport side-sills, a custom rear bumper and integrated diffuser plus a set of 20in alloy wheels.

For the mechanical upgrades, engineers chose to focus on improving performance of 3.0L TDI diesel model. Engine output has been increased to a healthy 297hp (up from 240hp in the stocker) and 610Nm of torque, courtesy of a new sports air-filter and stainless steel exhaust plus an ECU upgrade.

Rieger Tuning was founded by Toni Rieger twenty years ago and is based in Eggenfelden, Germany. The tuner is a specialist in creating bodykits for a number of German labels including Mercedes-Benz and BMW as well as Audi.
