Audi R8 Hyper Black Edition by Anderson Germany

. Monday, March 14, 2011

Dusseldorf-based tuner, Anderson Germany has today revealed the company's latest creation; the Audi R8 Hyper Black Edition. Based on the Audi R8 5.2 FSI, Anderson's Hyper Black Edition boasts 589 horsepower, a Rennkats exhaust system, 19" carbon-coated wheels, Racing Orange interior/exterior accents and whole a host of carbon fiber accoutrements. All resulting in one seriously menacing package.

Outside, in typical Anderson fashion, carbon fiber can be seen in all of the right places. The front spoiler lip, rear spoiler (also improving down-force), rear diffuser and mirrors all receive the carbon treatment. In addition to the jet black paint scheme, tinted windows and rear lights (along with black badges) all serve the car's "Hyper Black" namesake. All black, except for the conspicuous use of Racing Orange on the lips of the 19" carbon-covered wheels and brake calipers. The orange, in our opinion, being the perfect accent color for this particular machine.

Of course, looking mean is only half the battle. The other half comes by way of a 589 horsepower, 5.2-liter V10. Boasting 64 extra horses over stock, a software optimization, performance air intakes and a Rennkats exhaust system (with remote-controlled valve adjusting system) are all enough to even top the company's earlier "Racing Edition" R8.

Finally, the exterior color theme continues even after you pull the door handles. Inside, the R8 Hyper Black is finished in matte black carbon fiber-look leather combined with orange Alcantara accents. Of course, carbon fiber is then applied everywhere possible. The handbrake handle, radio visor, ashtray, seat adjustment handles, door panels, side panels of the center console, shifter surround and steering wheel each sport the carbon weave.

All told, we're more than willing to give Anderson Germany's Audi R8 Hyper Black Edition, our "sinister R8" seal of approval.

Press Release:


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.
Get into a car, buckle up and go...
