0 comments



Tuning firm MTM plans to show off their latest version of the Audi R8 V10 Biturbo at the Geneva Motor Show next week, according to the company's website. With a blinding new chrome exterior, the not-so-subtle car will be an easy mark for traffic cops.

However, police cars will have an incredibly tough time keeping up with the highly-tuned machine, which takes advantage of 766 horsepower (571 kW / 777 PS) and up to 888 Nm (655 ft-lb) of torque. The bi-turbo kit is expected to get the car to over 360 km/h (224 mph), once testing is completed. So far, the vehicle has "only" managed 347.6 km/h (216 mph), according to MotorVision.de.

Other features on the car include 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin PS2 tires. Upgraded 8-piston brakes, a new front lip and rear spoiler, and handling improvements have also been installed. The driver controls the four-wheel-drive car by way of a six-speed manual transmission. With any hope the car deliver's an exquisite driving experience, as the car will cost €400,000.
