While North Americans (and perhaps international automotive enthusiasts) were enjoying SEMA, Anderson Germany unleashed their own showstopper, the Race Edition Audi R8 V10. Not only does Anderson Germany’s Audi R8 V10 truly look like a race-inspired beast, but the collection of carbon fiber goods found on it are astonishing and perfectly fitting for Audi’s supercar.
There’s no denying how aggressive and exotic the R8 looks from the factory, but just the addition of Anderson Germany’s front carbon fiber apron transforms the exterior to something menacing and beautiful. In addition to the front apron, the rear spoiler, rear diffuser and mirror housings are replaced with carbon fiber counterparts.
Equally stunning are the staggered 19×8.5- and 19×11-inch one-piece wheels sporting a carbon coating with an orange pinstripe. Matching the new race-inspired look is a new power output of 577-hp, a significant increase over the factory’s 518-hp. This is achieved thanks to a reprogrammed ECU, high-flow air filter and lightweight exhaust system. Anderson Germany claims that their exhaust is 37-lbs less than the factory unit.
