Audi is a premium manufacturer. It is therefore not surprising that the company offers many opportunities to personalize their cars. And now she is ready to bring a new technology of partial matting to mass.

Even in the past decade, car paint has become a popular paint for matte paint, but now it is no longer so relevant. However, the company from Ingolstadt went further and introduced its own technology of partial matting. For the first time we could see it on the limited edition sports car R8 Coupé V10 plus: “selection 24h”. A total of 24 copies were released.

The essence of the technology lies in the fact that after painting, the car is “blown” by small pieces of glass, removing thousandths of a millimeter from the top layer of varnish. This creates the effect of partial matting. But earlier the manufacturer did it manually. Now the process will be partially automated.

The first production car with affordable partial matting as an additional option will be the Audi Q2 crossover. Unfortunately, the cost option is not reported.

Meanwhile, Audi decided to take a direct part in the creation of a new cartoon about a superhero, the main role of which will be cartoon Will Will. The company personally engaged in the creation of the supercar of the main character of the cartoon “Camouflage and espionage”.
