MTM Polished Audi R8 Biturbo to Shine in Geneva
The vehicle’s V10 engine has been fitted with twin turbochargers and now delivers 777 hp and 888 Nm (655 lb.ft.) of torque, pushing the monster to a top speed of over 350 km/h (217 mph). As for the sprinting game, the vehicle can hit 62 mph in 3 seconds flat, 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.37 (we like the German precision) seconds and 184 mph (300 km/h) in 19,42 seconds.
To handle all the muscle, the MTM R8 V10 biturbo uses an adjustable suspension, a beefier braking system that comes with 380 x 34 mm rotors and eight-piston grabbers for both axles and 20-inch forged rims.
The exterior of the vehicle comes with a polished finish that took over 700 working hours to complete and has been fitted with multiple carbon fiber parts. This is an unique vehicle, which is estimated by the German aftermarket developer at EUR400,000 (around $554,000).
“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 The plastic attaching parts have been replaced by carbon parts or with a special paint polished.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 interior leather shows that MTM Individual has a perfect design,” a company statement reads.
