WaM modified Audi R8

German tuning company WaM, short for ‘WheelsandMore,’ is best known for its outrageous wheel designs but the tuner has proven that it can match the big boys like Brabus and Lumma with its latest performance upgrades for the Audi R8. The latest package includes the tuner’s trademark flashy wheels but it also comes with a bevy of useful aero and power mods.

The most striking feature of the car is the forged 20in alloy wheels, available in two different styles. These protect a set of eight-piston callipers biting 15in discs and performance pads. A set of stiffer springs also improves handling and lowers the ride height by 25mm.

The rest of the exterior remains stock-standard but underneath the sheet metal is a range of performance modifications that boost output of the 4.2L V8 engine by 37hp (28kW) – up to 457hp (341kW). The list of power modifications includes a recalibrated ECU and a handmade stainless-steel exhaust system with a volume controller valve.
