Hofele-Design restyles the all-new Audi A8 luxury sedan
It turns out that ABT Sportsline is not going to be the only tuner, which will present a custom program for the recently released 2011 Audi A8 high-performance luxury sedan at this week's Geneva Auto Saloon, Hofele-Design's PRs have also announced a similar program and provided few renders of the refined newcomer. The premium-class designer's Audi A8 is distinguished by lower stance, emphasized sporty lines, redesigned cabin styling and modified ECU.
In the terms of aerodynamics and exterior design, the engineers at Hofele have developed a new front bumper with big air intakes and air vents in alloy look, discreet side skirts, rear diffuser with openings for a stainless steel sports muffler with four tailpipes and integrated bigger trunk spoiler lip.
In addition to the new restyled look, the retrofitted ride also boasts ETS lowering module, which allows individual adjustments between 40 and 80 mm, 20- or 22-inch Hofele Prado wheels wrapped in high-performance tyres and ceramic brakes. The A8's modified ECU boost the figures of the 4.2l V8 FSI gasoline engine to 400 horsepower (294 kW) and 475 Nm of maximum torque, which reflects in improved 0 – 100 km/h acceleration sprint – 5,3 seconds at fuel consumption 9,5l / 100 km.
Inside, the Hofele program restyles the cabin with 2-tone leather with stitched diamond pattern, Alcantara roof and 2-tone leather steering wheel in R8-Look with Carbon inlays.
Optionally, the stunning limousine can be finished in exclusive 2-tone, Maybach-like paint.
