The 2012 Audi R8 GT is a rare, limited edition supercar with only 333 examples worldwide and only 91 imported to the U.S. This car is #272. The V10’s output is lifted to 560hp… but that was not enough, so we added a Stasis Supercharger bumping power to 740hp!!! In addition to the power upgrades, this vehicle was upgraded with Stasis suspension and OEM Carbon Ceramic brakes! On top of the power mods, Kindig It Design customized the entire car in a not-available-to-the-public special PPG color named, “Bad Ass Tomato,” which is a beautiful red with a very subtle gold pearl. Carbon fiber faced wheels and an RS style grille, which complement the GT’s matte dry carbon components, round out the cosmetic upgrades on this already capable machine.
Several component mass reductions, plus lighter-weight dry carbon fiber used throughout the car, reduce vehicle weight by 265 lbs. The most significant weight savings come from a carbon decklid, lighter battery, and a thinner hood and windshield and ultimately result in a V10 R8 that is 65 lbs lighter than the V8 model! Aerodynamics upgrades include a front splitter and canards, a fixed rear wing, and a carbon diffuser. This makes for 2x the downforce in front and 6x the downforce in back, without increasing drag. The R8 GT is equipped with Audi's automated single-clutch R tronic gearbox but, is updated with lightened transmission counter balancers that reduce rotational inertia, which allows for faster shifts.
This car was a special collaboration between Kindig It Design (“Bitchin’ Rides”) and Makes & Models. Own a piece of Audi and the automotive aftermarket’s history with this very tastefully upgraded, special edition, R8 GT.
