Project Kahn Audi A5 apes the R8

Project Kahn has a new styling package for the Audi A5 which draws its inspiration from its bigger brother, the Audi R8 supercar. Take a look at the front and rear bumpers and you can clearly tell the 'R8-ness' in the bodykit. But if you drove a Project Kahn Audi A5, the only thing that would come to my mind is that you can't afford an R8, ergo the bodykit (much like another company's R8 kit for the Audi TT I suppose). So if you agree with my train of thought and think that this car is actually a poor man's R8, you may just as well stop reading this article and move on to the next. But if you don't actually care what I think of the Project Kahn Audi A5 and think that it is absolutely drop dead gorgeous, then read on.

The Project Khan A5 gets new ala-R8 bumpers front and rear (which includes a a diffuser as with all bodykits these days), quad tailpipes which are part of the sports exhaust plumbing and 21inch alloy wheels from RSL. The A5 also gets a 35mm drop from a customized suspension setup which should improve handling and grip although I think this show car would have problems overcoming the grip part of the equation as from what I heard this is the styling package for the Audi A5 3.0 and not a 4.2liter TFSI V8.

So there you have it. An Audi with more flash and the same amount of dash. Add the quilted leather seats, aluminium pedals, polished door sill kick plates, some interior bits here and there and you have a car that you'd be proud enough to show off at the local night spots.

Project Kahn will sell you a complete Audi A5 Sport Coupe with all the goodies mentioned above for 31,875 in the UK, but I still say if you drove in one and an R8 stops right beside you, you're going to wish that your A5 looked like an A5.
