If the Audi A8's stock wheels do nothing for you, or if the ride height as delivered from the factory still makes you think of a pickup truck, Project Khan has the fix. The British/Italian tuner starts with its 21" RS-X wheels (9.5" wide in the front and 11" out back), and then fits the vehicle with its TUV-approved electronic lowering module to drop the big sedan by 1.5". Privacy tint is applied to the glass, and to top off the modifications, a bespoke exhaust system with twin bazooka-sized machined 90mm tips is installed. There's no word on what effect the changes have to the performance of Audi's flagship, but we think that the modifications achieve subtle but very pleasing visual results. We also can't speak to the pricing of the package, but you know what they say about having to ask...

There are a couple more shots of the black bullet posted after the jump.

      Like people don't make Caddies gaudy. Escalade on Dubs BLING BLING!

      I don't get this tuning package either, 21 inch wheels? Why?

      I would take an MTM tuned S8 though.

      Man I am now an audi lover. The wheels are great. I am going out for a test drive. Will keep you updated.

      #10 Ryan...Where have you been the last couple years? EVERYONE has been saying the Five Hundred has VW/Audi styling cues.

      The funny thing is, the man that used to design for VW/Audi is the same man that designed the Five Hundred...

      AGAIN with the modern curb feelers (big stupid wheels). If it's your style, fine, but such a way to ruin a good car.

      Big pimpin spendin Gs, I got yo bitches down on they knees

      If the "tuner" of this A8 Turd ever wants to sell this in the US, they are going to have to learn the above lingo.

      Maybe this can become the next gotta have 'Sclade.

      Fugly wheels. Fuuugly.

      And when will people realize that filling up the entire wheel well is neither attractive nor functional on real roads?

      Beats Audi hands down!

      Actually used to have an A6, liked it a lot, but hated the service at the dealer.

      It is pointless to have wider rear wheels on this car.

      At best the weight distribution is only 55/45. Even with a torsen III center differential is still isn't needed, and precludes tire rotation. Michelin Pilot PS2 are the audi quattro tire.

      #4 You'd take a Caddy over and Audi? Have you ever driven an Audi?

      Like wow man, the comparison of cadillac and audi isn't fair for cadillac, audi is in a completely different and (better) league.

      I've driven both, no comparison.

      #6.... and your point? I'm saying I'd take a Caddy over any German, cept maybe a BMW M3/5.

      #5 Cadillac Sedan.. not Escalade... Sorry, Luxury truck to me is an oxymoron.... And all I'm saying is they look better stock...
