This is something that has caught my attention………….

Audi have patented a new process that, when “blasted” into the surface of the R8 sideblades, creates a matte finish for virtually any graphics or lettering.

“With this process, we modify the brilliance of the paintwork and the intensity of its sheen. Light hitting the surface is then reflected diffusely by the individualised surface areas. This makes it appear matt.”

Said project manager Dr. Erhard Brandl.

Production section head Mirko Endres said:

“This form of individualisation is weather resistant, unlike conventional lettering and stickers, and it has a much more high-quality appearance.”

This will be available for the first time as part of the Audi exclusive programme for the R8 Coupe and R8 Sypder. Audi say that this will become an option in their future range.
