Geneva 2011: MTM’s tuned 777bhp R8
Twin-turbo Audi R8 to debut at Geneva show. Oh, and it’s been polished. Biblically
Posted: 28 Feb 2011
Crass innuendo aside, there is much satisfaction to be gleaned from polishing your nuts and buffing up your bonnet.
‘Upgrading specialist' MTM has taken the art of polishing to its next illogical and utterly dazzling conclusion: Hundreds of man hours sprucing up the literally shiny R8 you see above.
The tuned Audi gets a pair of turbochargers boosting power to 777bhp and a claimed top speed of over 218mph. Clearly, this madness isn't nearly enough, so they totally stripped the R8's paint and polished the body. Polished it for 700 hours. Some mightily sore wrists, you will agree.
MTM will also showcase a 472bhp modified TT RS at the Geneva show, just because.
