Anderson of Germany just released their new tuner iteration of the Audi R8. Now called the Hyper Black Edition, which looks like it could be the new Batmobile, it features a bunch of new aesthetic and technical equipment to make the R8 have more cohones…like it didn’t already have enough?
The HBW features a – take a guess – nope, you’re wrong. It features a carbon fiber body kit with new front and rear fascias with diffuser, and a new rear wing.
The windows are tinted, tails smoked, the brake calipers are painted orange, and 19-inch shoes are slapped on.
On the inside, the carbon fiber treatment continues on virtually anything that’s a hard surface. Alcantara is laid throughout the cabin with enough orange highlights to make you want to drive the car only on Halloween.
Under the bonnet, Anderson fitted a new high-flow air filter, a retuned ECU, and a sport exhaust system with dynamic remote-controlled sound valves that allow the driver to descide how much ROOOOMMM he/she wants. The combined efforts raise the 5.2L V10 to 581hp, 63 more than the stock V10 R8.
Prices will be announced in the near future.
Anderson Germany Audi R8 Hyper Black Edition:
AUDI R8 HYPER BLACK EDITION FROM ANDERSON GERMANY
Once the car reaches a road speed of 100 km/h, the rear spoiler moves automatically as if by magic. This street legal sports car that somehow has a look of UFO – albeit a fantastically beautiful – inspires respect to any Porsche. With 443 inches long, only 125 height and 1620 kg weight, this all-aluminum flounder is practically sticking on the street.
Once again the company ANDERSON Germany from Dusseldorf helps a practically perfect Audi R8 with specific interventions to attract unlimited attention. First, the performance of 5.2 liter engine and 525 hp was increased, that provides now up to 8700 rpm, 589 hp and accordingly grown torque. This power increase was implemented through the Rennkats exhaust system (this alone allows to save 22 kg weight), a software optimization, and air filter modification. Of course, the exhaust path has a remote-controlled valve adjusting system that lets the driver opt from three different levels of noise. So much for the “inner values”.
Among external and thus visible changes, it is worth to mention exclusive carbon-coated 19-inch rims painted in body color with edging in Racing Orange style. Through the rim, the brake caliper is visible, of course, painted in Racing Orange as well.
On the other hand, the carbon exterior package should also be mentioned which, apart from the window frames, has “covered” various other parts like the front spoiler lip, rear spoiler for improved downforce, the rear diffuser and the mirror. All windows and rear lights were tinted. Last but not least is the expensive paint finish in black mirror which Anderson worthily called Hyper Black. This paint gives the R8 V10 somewhat a black soul.
The interior finish with matte black carbon fiber leather combined with orange Alcantara holds any comparison. At this point, this so-called carbon interior package includes the handbrake handle, the radio visor, the ashtray, the handles of the seat adjustment, door panels, and the side panels of the center console and shifter surround. And finally, the already first-rate sports steering wheel was additionally enhanced with visible carbon.
