MTM individual makes the Audi R8 unique

Autozine
14 April 2009 | Customers who want to avoid that their neighbours suddenly shows up with the same car, are now given a guarantee by MTM that this will certainly not happen. Motoren Technik Mayer (MTM) now shows what the individualisation program offers. The most obvious novelty of the middle-engine super sports car with the aluminium body is the garish green paint. 'Porsche 2D8' is the exact name of this brash colour which became famous on the Porsche GT3.
 

On all four black brake callipers and on the black fuel cap, there is a green 'R8' nameplate. The ultra-light MTM Bimoto light alloy wheels measuring 9x20 and 11x20 inches in glossy black, show the green nameplate 'MTM forged' on one spoke per wheel and therefore refer to the high-quality forged technology of the rim. In the interior, the exciting car colour repeats at the seams of the suede MTM steering wheel and the 'Quattro' nameplate on the glove department flap. Also, the 'R8' logo on the gear-shift shines in green.

The especially developed compressor technology by MTM, propels the performance of the V8-engine with 4.2 litres cubic capacity from 420 hp (313 kW) by a third up to 560 hp (418 kW). Also the maximum torque increases by 34 percent from 430 to 580 Newton metres. MTM also offers this power improvement for the Audi R8 with the V10-engine. By exchanging the motor electronics, the performance of the latter then increases from 520 hp (388 kW) to 560 hp (418 kW) as well.

The right sound is rendered by the new exhaust system with valve control which leads into four black ceramic-coated end pipes. Re-engineered side-blades which direct the airflow from behind the doors right into the middle engine provide the necessary air supply.

In order to transfer the newly gained power on the road, an extensive aerodynamics package renders the necessary downthrust. At the front, the splitter made of carbon fibre which is painted green on the top and matt black on the bottom thrusts the automobile on the tarmac. The side skirts and the rear diffuser, both also entirely made of green varnished carbon fibre hold the rear axle of this 4WD automobile on the road. Therefore, the MTM R8 achieves top speeds on the race track. In order to avoid hitting the ground on road bumps or garage exits, MTM added its Lift-up-System. This optionally elevates the front- or rear axle by 40 millimetres and enables the driver to master all everyday chicanes.
