Are you a brazen Audi TT owner who couldn't get onto the R8 waiting list? Yorkshire-based Niche might just have the solution for you.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and with the Audi R8 being regarded as one of the planet's most beautiful cars, it was only a matter of time before someone planted an imitation R8 'bodykit' on the smaller TT.

If you lack an inferiority complex and can stomach the direct questioning about why you did not get an R8 instead, you could go ahead and fork out R100 000 and slap on a Niche TT kit.

All the R8 styling features are present, such as the huge rear bumper vents, aggressively oversized front grille and vents as well as an obligatory set of oversized mags.

Larger, square-shaped exhausts aid the audible appeal of the exhaust note, whilst the rear styling upgrades still render the parking sensors usable too. The R8-like presence of the Niche TT is reinforced by a suspension lowering, which is part of the overall package.
