Gallery: Upgrading an Audi R8 LMS to 2013 ultra specification

By Johan Laubscher

Twin Busch Motorsport is a German team who compete in the VLN Championship. During 2012 they acquired and raced an older specification Audi R8 LMS. The team have decided to upgrade their car this year. They have purchased an upgrade kit which would transform their older R8 LMS to the latest 2013 Audi R8 LMS ultra specification.

The latest version of the Audi R8 LMS race cars includes a number of improvements and updated aerodynamic components. You can read more about the different Audi R8 LMS versions and their visual differences HERE

Twin Busch Motorsport kept their fans updated during the upgrade process by posting various photos on Facebook during the build. We have included those photos below, which reveal a pictorial display of the transformation from an Audi R8 LMS to a 2013 Audi R8 LMS ultra.

The photos begin with the car in its original R8 LMS specification and then continue through the upgrade process (including a photo of the entire kit as delivered) and ends off with the completed 2013 specification race car.
