Anderson Germany has done it again. The German tuner has unveiled another remarkable tuning package for the Audi R8 V10. After the Racing Edition unveiled last year, the tuner has now brought forth the Hyper-Black Edition. As its name suggests, the Hyper-Black edition comes in a smooth black exterior, but it also combines that exterior with different orange inserts and an impressive engine boost to the tune of an extra 64 HP.
The standard version of the R8 V10 delivers 525 HP, but with the added boost, Anderson Germany was able to get a total output of 589 HP. This was accomplished with a Rennkats exhaust system, a software optimization, and an air filter modification. Alongside the engine mods is a carbon fiber package that helps to reduce the car’s total weight. So far, nothing has been said about the car’s performances, but we can only imagine what this car is now capable of doing.

Exterior and Interior
The Hyper-Black Edition by Anderson Germany is obviously painted in a sinister mirror black color called Hyper Black. Next to this dark side is some carbon fiber which has been appropriately added to the front spoiler lip, rear spoiler for improved downforce, rear diffuser, and mirror. Orange brake calipers provide for a small highlight against the dark exterior. The car sits on a new set of exclusive carbon-coated 19-inch rims painted in the same black with edging in Racing Orange.
For the interior, the tuner is offering matte black carbon fiber leather combined with orange Alcantara. The carbon fiber is used for the handbrake handle, radio visor, ashtray, handles of the seat adjustment, door panels, and side panels of the center console and shifter surround.
Any car that has received this many carbon fiber additions will obviously get a boost in performance as well. Helping that boost along is a Rennkats exhaust system which saves 22kg (48lbs) of weight, a software optimization, and an air filter modification. These additions and modifications help the engine pump out 589hp, up from the standard 525hp.
The sounds of the engine have also been given some extra incentive with a remote-controlled valve adjusting system that allows the driver to choose from three different levels of noise.
Anderson Germany has yet to reveal any pricing details for their new Audi R8 package.
Ever since its official launch, the Audi R8 V10 has seen lots of tuning packages. As previously stated, this is already the second package from Anderson Germany alone. Their first package, the Racing Edition, received a power increase from 525 to 585 HP, while also getting some significant exterior updates. Both of these packages work just fine for the avid R8 enthusiast, but the most impressive package comes from a little tuning firm called MTM.
The R8 V10 Biturbo by MTM is the package for the R8 simply because it delivers no less than 777 HP! With these updates, the MTM R8 is able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, from 0 to 124 in 9.37 seconds, and will hit a top speed of 217 mph. Clearly, MTM gets our vote.
