    Same thing. Just what Audi calls their Carbon Fiber.

    In chemistry, sigma bonds are the strongest type of covalent chemical bond so Audi might be associating their CF as being strong.

    thanks. It has a mat finish and is not shinny like the carbon fiber on the exterior of the car.

    Not so. Interior carbon on regular R8 is matte finish. Outer blades and engine compartment are glossy.

    In the UK the Plus (standard) and V10 (option) are matte and the Spyder option is gloss. There are also two levels of package. The basic inlay option covers the doors, centre console and passenger dash; the full carbon interior pack extends this to the instrument surround and vents. The full package is standard on the Plus.
