The Audi R8 GT is not only the fastest production version of the Ingolstadt supercar, but one of the rarest go-fast cars out there, with production strictly limited to 333 examples of the coupe. In stock form, the track-focused, hunkered-down monster produces an impressive 560 horsepower going to all four wheels. What’s more, through extensive use of carbon fiber, it’s also 100 kilograms (220 lbs) lighter than the standard R8 V10.

Audi has done its best impersonation yet of the Porsche’s 911 GT models, so owners should definitely keep it away from the aftermarket world. But of course, they can’t!

That’s why the Germans from Wheelsandmore have been able to make the fastest R8 even faster. First off, the engine has been boosted from the 560 hp it came with out of the ‘box’ to 611 hp. The tuner already had experience with the engine, releasing a 600 horsepower variant a while back, but playing a few extra games with the ECU has helped, and so has finding out what the V10 likes to breath through - new stainless steel system which features remote controlled valve flaps and is around 40 percent lighter.

The Supersport Edition, as Wheelsandmore calls it, has a lot of bling showing the world it’s special. First off, the wheels come in a 9,0 x 20 inch size for the front axle and in a 11,0 x 20 inch size for the rear one and are wrapped in Continental Sport Contact 5P tires (235/30 in the front and 295/25 in the rear).

In addition to that, the tuner also brought a new finish for the front grille, black exhaust pipes, as well as a new suspension that offers a LCS (level control system) function. This can raise the vehicle by 40 mm at the touch of a button and also allows the driver to adjust the rebound and compression rates.
