When we hear about a black matte sports car we can’t resist the temptation to write about it, especially when the matte black flavor arrives on an Audi R8 V10. SR Auto Group has prepared a very amazing package for the German car, called the "Valkyrie." This can definitely be considered a strange name considering it can relate to the Tom Cruise movie "Valkyre" or it can relate back to Norse mythology where the Valkyrie can be translated into the "chooser of the slain". Either way, it’s pretty freaky.

Regardless, moving on to the car. Starting with the exterior, SR added a Leios matte black, PPI razor carbon fiber front air dam, PPI razor carbon fiber side skirts, PPI razor carbon fiber rear diffuser, PPI razor front/rear air vents and smoked front/side/rear lights.

For the interior, the tuner added a carbon fiber trim and custom SR executive interior reupholstery. The whole package is finished by H&R lowering springs and advance one ADV7.1 wheels (20 x 8.5 front, 20 x 11 rear) with matte black faces and gloss black lips.

The result is truly impressive with all of the added features transforming the vehicle into a dark menacing creature. Anyone will surely stand out in the crowd driving along the roads in one of these babies!

I was captivated with the speed performance of the car. And I would say that this is an awesome tuned up version.

I really love the styling of the vehicle. I was impressed with the speed performance of the v10 here. This would be an awesome production from the Audi.

The exterior seems great as well as the added package. I bet it will give an impressive result with all those added features.

Matte color gives added sporty impression on the car. However, for this car this color looks great. Though, I was hoping that they upgrade the engine a little.

The audiophiles among us will immediately spot the missing ’fin’ underneath the headlamps while the rear is missing two of the horizontal fins. Further than that, the two larger exhaust pipes (instead of two double exhausts) and the side scoops have larger air-intakes for the necessary cooling of the engine."

Same, here. R8 Coupe has a strong road presence, this Spyder looks almost like a cheap TT. The design of roof and aluminum sides on Coupe make a big difference, feels more robust.

at first look it doesn’t look like an R8 for me.

This is a great looking car in any form. When you see one it really grabs your attention and when you see one in the Michigan winter like I have it REALLY grabs your attention. Others have said they see TT but I’m not really seeing that at all except for the 4 rings on the front and the grille. I see a V10 badge and great looking lines that scream "I’m faster than you". Audi, in my opinion makes the some of the best looking machines on four wheels in the world.

I agree, black matte is very attractive to super car specially to audi R8.

This matte black Audi R8 V10 called “Project Valkyrie” makes our jaws drop. Pure awesomeness!

Nissan GTR is faster than both Porsche GT3 and Ferrari F430 in the Nurburging ring... if that’s not a supercar then nothing else is.

What a very nice looking R8 specially the rear diffuser. It gives extra aggressive looks to the r8. And the brake calipers added a high light to the black color.
