Considering how long this car has been around, and how good it looks with buffed up fenders, you don’t see that many wide body Audi R8 models out there. You have Liberty Walk, Prior Design, and that’s about it. Now there could be a third one, if a tuner picks up this design and start working on it.
This rather special wide body Audi R8 is penned by Jon Sibal who has taken a lot of liberties with the design of the car. But all of the changes he has made serve the purpose of creating something wonderfully unique out of the old R8 hardtop. He’s given it super-wise, almost DTM-style, arches, custom sills and skirts including new side blades, custom bumpers and aero parts, a cool ducktail spoiler, and some pretty awesome wheels.
Sibal calls his wide body Audi R8 the “Panda Express” although it looks to us more like a ripped Stormtrooper. Sadly, chances are we will never see this thing out in the real world on account of it being way too fancy and complicated to build. Come to think of it, the reason we don’t see more tricked-out R8s could have something to do with the R8 buyers, the majority of whom are the efficient, academic type with no concept of tuning.
