MTM has unveiled the insane, street-legal Audi R8 GT3-2.
Like the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni, the GT3-2 ditches all-wheel drive for rear-wheel drive. Elsewhere, the company installed a differential lock, an adjustable sports suspension, an improved braking system, aerodynamic carbon fiber body parts (front spoiler, side skirts and rear wing), and 20-inch forged wheels with Dunlop Sport Maxx GT (or Michelin Cup Sport) tires.
Power comes from a supercharged 4.2-liter FSI engine, which produces 560 PS (412 kW / 552 hp) and 580 Nm (428 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the GT3-2 to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, before topping out at 317 km/h (197 mph).
No word on pricing or availability, but MTM says "people who already own a R8 have the possibility to convert it into a R8 GT3-2."
