Random Spotlight: SR Auto Group R8 Project 'Dione'

February 14, 2011

We all know there are tons of Auto Shops or individually owned businesses in building project cars for major automotive shows or for clients and from the overwhelming lists of companies, I want to share a project car made and developed by SR Auto Group from Richmond, BC.

This car really doesn't need an introduction, especially after the company introduced two R8's in the past; R8 V10 Project Valkyrie and Project Pur R8 Phantom. However, their technical skills and knowledge of luxurious cars didn't stop and continued with another R8, and this time, named 'Dione'.

One of the major focused areas for this project was the exterior. The Front Grill and Lip, Wing, and Side Skirts were replaced with PPI Razor Carbon Fiber, one of the companies that designs and manufactures Carbon Fiber parts for exotic vehicles.

And for a project car, the choice of wheels is definitely critical because it changes the flow and look of the whole car. SR Auto Group shortened down their list of wheels and chose 20 in. Volk Raching VRG2 in Matte Finish with Jet Blue Metallic Pinstripes to match the color of the body. The wheels just made an exotic car more exotic.
