The Audi R8 is a wonderful car, sure. It kicked the 911 off its high horse and since it came out its been a critical darling, but it’s always been a little understated.

Don’t get me wrong, that’s one of its finer features. It looks good without looking, well, rude. But what if you have a sense of drama. What if you want to be noticed? Well, Hanoverian vinyl wrap experts,, have your solution: their new Sunflower Matte Metallic wrap.

Not only will this make your R8 stand out more, it will also make it safer, because the wrap utilizes “self healing” technology to protect the car from stones and other hazards conspiring to chip it.

With the self-healing material, says XPEL who makes the product, light scuffs and scratches will disappear in the heat of the sun or your garage. It’s not a miracle, but it seems to work pretty well in this video they produced.

The cost of this marvel of modern technology is €3,400. The color may not be to everyone’s tastes, but, to my eye at least, the shade of yellow works for the car. It’s bright, but the flat finish is interesting and unusual with the yellow. offers wraps in other, more understated colors, too, if those are more to your tastes.
