    Riced out R8? XXX-Performance's '650' horsepower widebody blue chrome foil wrapped R8 V10

    There is tasteful modding and there is this. Basically, this car just screams attention and does so more in the manner of a big girl wearing a tight leopard print dress than something a bit more elegant and refined which is what an R8 is supposed to be. Ok, to the blue foil wrap and the 20 inch "blinged out" Forgiato wheels are a bit much. The same can be said about the black vinyl accents especially on the hood that just make one go, "What were they thinking?"

    The rear of the car is actually pretty sexy looking aggressive with the large quad pipes built into the diffuser. The widebody work is pretty well done especially the fenders. In black without the ridiculous scoop on the roof the car would likely look very aggressive.

    XXX-Performance claims 650 horsepower out of the 5.2 V10 with software and exhaust modifications. AudiBoost claims BS and conveniently there is no dyno graph to support the claims. It's their word versus ours and considering what other tuners are getting out of the motor their word holds little water with no support. A tuner should be required to back up these kinds of claims.

    Pictures below.

    Who stances an R8 like that? I bet the handling characteristics are compromised. Do not want, although I must agree that the actual bodywork is well done. Though, I don't like the way the fenders extend down to the front of the car. Its an awkward, relatively strait line that looks out of place.
