I’m going to go ahead and file this one under “Ridiculous” and call this one of the most insane Audi’s I’ve ever seen. MTM raises the bar here once again and announces a 777hp V10 Twin Turbo Audi R8 just in time for the Geneva Auto Salon. And if 777HP and a 3.0 second 0-62 MPH wasn’t good enough they added a full polished aluminum finish to the car. I guarantee the Sultan of Brunei already has dibs on this one! We all know he has a soft spot for chrome Audis. Not to be forgotten is the 472HP TT RS as well! We will bring you more information and photos from Geneva! View the full MTM press release and high res photo gallery below!
* MTM at the Autosalon 2011 in Geneva – hall 5 / booth no. 5140
* World premiere: Polished MTM R8 Biturbo – more than 1.200 working hours
* MTM TT RS with 472 hp / 347 kW
MTM from Wettstetten will be represented at the Autosalon in Geneva from the 3. – 13. March 2011 with two cars. In hall 5 MTM, car manufacturer and upgrading specialist, presents not only technical details and masterstrokes but also a visual highlight, which lets the exhibition hall shine in the truest sense of the word. The MTM R8 Biturbo with 777 hp / 571 kW and a top speed of more than 350 km/h was highly polished by MTM , this unique specimen with a worth of over 400.000 € was depainted completely in a special procedure and the aluminium chassis was polished in more than 700 working hours – all handmade . As well to see at the Autosalon: the MTM TT RS in the MTM design with 472 hp / 347 kW, which reached a top speed of 312 km/h at first test drives in Nardo.
MTM R8 V10 BiTurbo
The details of the highly polished MTM R8 V10 Biturbo, for which MTM also promises a registration for Germany: Performance upgrade to 777 hp, 888 Nm torque and a top speed beyond the 350 km/h. MTM also expects best acceleration values:
0 – 100 in 3,0 sec
0 – 200 in 9,37 sec
0 – 300 in 19,42 sec
The test drives on the highspeed track in Nardo in South Italy in September last year showed that the car can be moved in a sporty way also under extreme conditions, full load drives and extreme temperatures. MTM uses a coil over kit with adjustable suspensions, 20″ forged rims in the Bimoto design and MTM brakes 380 x 34 mm dimpled with 8-piston calipers at the front and rear axle.
The V10 Biturbo engine was already tested successfully in the RS6 with up to 740 hp / 544 kW and a top speed of 362,5 km/h in Nardo.
Real uniqueness you can also find at the design: The paint of the R8 was completely removed and highly polished in over 700 working hours. The plastic attaching parts have been replaced by carbon parts or with a special paint polished. An adjustable rear spoiler and a front lip out of carbon improve the aerodynamic and stabilise the car. The interieur leather shows that MTM Individual has a perfect design.
