“Black Optics” has been a regular option box on Audi’s German order book for years. The idea is simple: rid the car of most any chrome be it grille surround, window treatment or other. During the B7 era Audi of America experimented with the look, packaging it with unique wheels, S-line body treatment and specific colors to create the successful A4 Titanium Package. The model worked and the cars achieved a cult-like following amongst enthusiast. That success was enough to garner a return and even an expansion for the B8-generation.
