Just the right stuff.
The Audi R8 is arguably the perfect all-around, every-day super car. It serves up superb performance, lots of technology, comfort, and is a capable daily driver. Frankly, it doesn’t need much of anything, and this R8 V10 with a new set of Brixton Forged M53 Targa Series wheels is a perfect example.
The mighty 5.2-liter V-10 engine sitting right behind the cabin provides a wonderful earful of screaming cylinders. That symphony is sent to all four wheels through the quattro all-wheel drive system that grabs the pavement in any situation.
The job of controlling that power for this Audi R8 V10 falls upon the new set of Brixton Forged M53 Targa Series wheels. The lightweight, three-piece forged alloy wheels boast a more technical and complex design with step-lip construction and a concave depth that emphasizes power and performance.
Up front, the Brixton Forged M53 Targa Series wheels measure 9.0 x 20 while the rear comes in at a wide 12.0 x 20. Each wheel sports a high-luster polished Classic Bronze outer lip and matte Olympic Bronze transparent top coat with 120-grit brushed aluminum face, to provide some contrast to the grey paint.
While it’s not an overly complex upgrade package, the Audi R8 V10 shows that it doesn’t need much to be a stand-out super car.
