Power blasting technique leaves behind permanent etching in paintwork on Audi R8.
Audi has revealed a new customisation option for the R8, offering buyers of the supercar the option to have their own personalised mark left in the car’s paintwork.
Using a new patented etching technique, Audi can ‘blast’ any lettering or graphics into the lacquered surface of the side blades, and though it’s only available on the R8 for now, the company says it’s a mod which will become available on other Audi models in the near future.
While the pictures provided by Audi show the R8 wearing rather tame Audi Sport logos, the company says it will etch any pattern requested by a customer so long as it doesn’t impede on any third-party rights.
