Audi R8 in matte black carbon
If you have been following Top Speed over the past year, then you will understand our affection for matte black super cars, so at first glance we thought what could possibly be better then this stealth like Audi R8 that was spotted in historic capital of Greece, Athens. From a distance it appears that the all wheel drive aluminum super car had received a flat black wrap just like a very special Ferrari F430 that we showed you recently, however as you get up close, the dull dark luster turns into a honeycomb of woven strands of carbon.
Now we’ve seen what a carbon fiber wrap can look like with the Hennessey Tuner School’s Genesis Coupe. However after inspecting it in person at the 2009 SEMA Show, the imitation carbon fiber ended up looking like a pitiful attempt at body work. But you can rest assured, because it looks like this R8 owner skipped the vinyl store and went straight to the autoclave, because these body panels look to be 100% pure space age black stuff.
Pretty cool, don’t you think?
