As a factory option, Audi offer a body kit for the R8 called “Audi sport performance parts”. One of the components included are the rear side bumper canards. These accentuate the look of the rear bumper giving a better stance and all round a more aggressive look. Audi charge very high prices for exterior carbon however the new Carbonwurks R8 range aims to tackle that providing the same look at a more affordable price without compromising quality.
The rear side bumper canards are made up lightweight and strong carbon fibre produced via vacuum infusion giving both great strength and superior finish. Once the parts have been produced and pulled from the mould, they are checked and tested thoroughly before heading to lacquer. Each part is inspected further and checked for tolerances before being hand and machine polished, followed by being waxed and sealed in with high content Carnauba products from our partner Race Glaze.
The rear side bumper canards are easy install, although fitting is quite straight forward we do always recommend using a trained professional to undertake the installation. We estimate around 45 minutes to fit the full set. No drilling is required, these are held in place with a very high bond double sided tape (pre-installed) especially developed for us (not available anywhere else), sealant can also be used for an even more secure fit.
