Can’t afford the price tag of Fifth Gear’s COTY winner, the Audi R8? Well as long as an Audi TT is still within your budget you needn’t worry.
UK based tuning shop Niche has developed an exterior treatment to transform your humble TT into the thoroughbred R8.
Along with the R8-inspired body panels, for an £8800 ($A20,000) price tag you will also receive nine-spoke alloy wheels, lowered suspension and dual exhaust outlets.
Does this mean the elegant TT will meet the same fate as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo V, where every kid with a few hundred dollars could transform his mum’s hand-me-down 1.5-litre Lancer into the mighty Evo – stickers included? While this a kit for rich people it smacks of the same cheesy shortcut philosophy – perhaps if it had the V8 to match?
