Audi presents the R8 in September 2006, the first mid-engined sports car, which is approved as a production vehicle for the road. With the mounting position of the engine in the all-aluminum body a weight distribution of 44 to 56 percent between the front and rear axle shall be achieved. The prototype, from which the name R8 originates and with which Audi won at Le Mans five times, and the production car are however worlds apart. Exactly this R8 Coupé, an already quite polarizing sports car of superlatives, has been subjected to an almost miraculous metamorphosis by the firm REGULA Tuning from Schwerte. A made of aramid (aromatic polyamide) body kit brings the R8 even closer to the perfect race machine with road approval. As with all products from the pen of REGULA tuning, unlimited robustness and absolute accuracy have the first priority. The use of raw materials with only the highest quality and permanent quality controls ensure the high standard of product flexibility with also an extremely smooth surface, which in turn helps to reduce the painting costs.
