MTM Tuned Audi R8

. Friday, April 10, 2009

At first glance, this MTM tuned Audi R8 will give you a love-hate ultimatum, based solely on the car's green color scheme. If you can get past the "Incredible Hulk" paint-job, there's more to offer under the hood of this mean, green, machine (who can resist a good rhyme now and then).

To be exact, the shade of green used on this MTM Audi R8 is the same found on the Porsche 911 GT3, so that alone should push the coolness factor higher. However, it's what is found underneith the sheet metal that is truly unique.

Powered by the original Audi R8's 4.2 liter V8, MTM pushes the horsepower envelope from a stock 420 hp to a V10-crushing 560 hp. Torque is also raised considerably from 317 lb/ft to 427 lb/ft, all thanks to MTM's renowned compressor technology. In case you're wondering, MTM also offers a V10 upgrade, however no details of that version have been released.

In addition to the powertrain upgrades, the MTM Audi R8 features gloss black, Bimoto 20-inch, ultra-lightweight alloy wheels, carbon fiber aero kit and an optional lift-kit to raise the car over curbs and speed bumps.
