Carbon-fiber exterior and interior treatment, new wheels and performance upgrades have refined Audi’s open-top supercar.
Vancouver-based tuning house SR Auto Group has returned to one of its most popular projects, reinventing the Audi R8 Spyder with a host of carbon-fiber parts, new wheels and some modest performance upgrades. Dubbed the Speed Walker, the revamped R8 Spyder's only exterior change is a carbon-fiber front spoiler courtesy of Hofele and a set of 20-inch PUR 4OUR monoblock alloys finished in modern gloss black and housing a set of red brake calipers.
On the inside, SR fitted a PPI carbon-fiber steering wheel, and a carbon-fiber center console and gear shift ring both by MA. To improve performance and refine the engine's soundtrack and breathing, the tuner added a Carbonio carbon-fiber intake sytem, a Miltek exhaust system and an APR ECM upgrade.
