Carbon Love: Audi R8 Hyper Black Edition by Anderson Germany

Anderson Germany, one of Europe’s lesser known tuning firms, has set their sights on the flagship version of the Audi R8 with the 5.2-liter V10 powerhouse. Named Audi R8 Hyper Black Edition, the tune includes both aesthetic modifications and a few modest performance upgrades.

The mechanics at Anderson Germany started by reconfiguring the ECU and adding a modified air filter and a custom sports exhaust system which shaves 22 kg or 48.5 pounds over the stock unit and comes with a remote-controlled valve adjusting system that lets the driver opt from three different levels of noise. The result is a 64HP bump for a total output of 589HP.

On the styling side, the R8 is painted in a ‘Hyper Black’ color and is fitted with carbon fiber coated 19-inch rims in a black finish with orange edging. The same orange hue is also found on the brake calipers.

Several carbon-fiber exterior accoutrements are available including the window frames, front lip spoiler, rear spoiler and rear diffuser.

Inside, the R8 V10’s cabin is lathered in orange Alcantara and a special black carbon-fiber leather trim.

Pricing for the Audi R8 Hyper Black Edition has not yet been announced.
