Dubbed the Hyper Black Edition, the package brings exterior, interior and powerplant developments. We shall start in the engine bay: the 5.2-liter V10 unit has been fitted with a custom exhaust, which is 22 kg lighter than the stock one, sports air filters and has received an ECU remap. The unit now churns out 589 hp, a decent increase over the 525 hp factory output.
As its name suggests, the vehicle uses an all-black theme, both for the exterior and the interior. The R8 has been gifted with a carbon fiber exterior package, which includes a front spoiler lip, rear spoiler, rear diffuser and the mirror caps. The car is dressed in what Anderson Germany calls Hyper Black. The R8 rides on 19-inch rims that are painted in the body color and feature Racing Orange edges.
As for the interior, this uses a mix of carbon fiber and Orange Alcantara and also comes with special elements, such as a sports steering wheel.
“Once the car reaches a road speed of 100 km/h, the rear spoiler moves automatically as if by magic. This street legal sports car that somehow has a look of UFO – albeit a fantastically beautiful – inspires respect to any Porsche. With 443 inches long, only 125 height and 1620 kg weight, this all-aluminum flounder is practically sticking on the street,” stated the press release, potentially generating hatred in the Porsche family.
