Partial Matting on Audi R8

Partial matting on Audi R8 - Definitely cool!

The owners of the Audi R8 have always been able to make an impression but now, they can also make their mark on one thanks to a new Audi-developed process: the partial matting of painted surfaces that enables virtually any lettering or graphics to be precisely ‘blasted’ into the painted surface of the supercar’s distinctive sideblades.

A special powder roughens the clear lacquer on the surface to a depth of a few thousandths of a millimetre so that individual markings become visible, making each R8 which undergoes the process unique. As the desired symbols are applied to components after being painted, the process can easily be integrated into normal series production.

Using this partial matting of painted surfaces, we would love to see an orange Audi R8 with the word “VINCAR” on the sideblades!
