The R8 was a major new product launch for Audi as they enter the supercar league using experience gained from the Lamborghini marque. One of the most original features of the R8 are the side panels which open into a vent to the bottom of the door. Customers could specify Carbon fibre side panels and this is, in our opinion the most stylish. There is something about carbon fibre than finishes off a performance car nicely. We’re just waiting for the all carbon fibre bodied R8 to be realised but until then we shall content ourselves with a set of carbon fibre panels.
