The euro-tuners Anderson Germany has added the Audi R8 Hyper Black to their collection. These guys are no stranger to the R8, tuning the V8 version and creating a race edition of the V10 last year. Now for 2011, the R8 Hyper Black has been revealed and can be described as a car with split personalities. Everything was done in moderation when it came to the engine and exterior. The engine just received a lighter and more open exhaust, new air filters, and a software chip that gives it 64 more horsepower and weighs 40 pounds less.
Styling was simple too, just a new pair of 19-inch rims painted to match the body and the Audi rings blacked out. Open the door and that clean look goes away faster than the car can hit 60. The “accent color” orange can be seen everywhere from the wheel and dash, to all the stitching. Then someone got crazy with the carbon-fiber and suede. Every surface possible got covered with one of the two material. I don’t see this type of interior styling a bad thing, I just think it seems a bit out of place. The outside is so clean, no crazy body kit or bright orange wheels. So, no one expects such a funky interior. The Anderson Germany Audi R8 Hyper Black certainly does not fall into the disaster category, it just happens to have a bit of a split personality.
