RS Styling or S8 Performance: Why Not Both?

It's not just a black&white or run-of-the-mill question; there's definitely no easy answer as to why Audi's designers pack many of their cars (the S8 in particular - R8 as an exception) into such understated envelopes. This is often styling that bears no resemblance to the advanced engineering or driving experience the cars are capable of. This is not a criticism of the OEM design, just an observation. Regardless, we're more than pleased they have not assigned responsibility for the A8 / S8 design over to their cousins at Lamborghini.
Why? ... because LLTeK provides German car owners with the shortest problem-free distance from OEM design to the modified look of the performance car they purchased. Here at LLTeK, we know firsthand that certain Audi owners believe these cars have lines that are so conservative, they are virtually begging to be modified. Yes, we modify. No, begging is verboten.

This "wrap" modification from Hofele Design GbmH (besides the font bumper, valence, and spoiler) includes an offering of carbon fiber mirror housings, electronic suspension lowering and an array of wheels.

    Update September 14, 2012 - Mark was in Europe for the show in Frankfurt last week and after the show, he stopped by Hofele. A D4 (SR8) was in the showroom and he was surprised when he saw the D4 trunk lip spoiler as shown to the left. This snapshot came off his iPhone and it illustrates a fine point that has been clarified in the description above. The carbon fiber in the spoiler is an accent as opposed to being the material of manufacture.

    We have a request in for better images - and will publish when we receive them.
