Find out about the chromed R8 V10 Biturbo from MTM, and how fast it may be able to go, inside.
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.
