German modification company Prior Design is one of the best out there, and its wide body kit for the 1988 Audi Coupé B3 proves just that.

Rarely does a company produce body parts for a car that is over 30 years old. Instead, the industry is filled with tuned Mercedes-Benz G-Class‘ and reworked exotics. However, Prior Design has looked to Audi’s rallying heritage and has developed something that wouldn’t look out of place in the 1980s, when Quattro was dominating Group B rally races.

The Prior Design Audi Coupé B3 is undoubtedly cool. Sitting on a set of matte black five-spoke rims, you’ll see a boxy body complete with wide wheel arches, a squared-off front end with five bonnet slats, canards on the side, and a large front splitter.

On the side profile, you’ll spot new side skirts with carbon fiber air ducts appearing just above them. At the rear, Prior Design brings a slightly more contemporary aesthetic thanks to a set of oval-shaped exhaust pipes (that look reminiscent of modern Audis), and a new rear bumper-diffuser combination. Rounding out the look is a large extended lip spoiler. Black branding on the side and rear completes the custom design.

Prior Design spent four months developing the Audi Coupé B3 wide body kit with “well-known figures from the automotive industry.” Only 40 are due to be built, costing €5,798 EUR each (approx. $6,700 USD). Take a closer look at the car above, and purchase your kit while stocks last on Prior Design’s website.
