    Default MTM builds an 888-hp Audi R8

    Before you even say it, yes the wheels got to go. ESPECIALLY with a flate pant job. I was also a big fan of the rear glass enclosure, which has now been sealed for the most part with scoop looking things


    MTM, those crazy Germans who built the twin-engine, 740-hp Audi TT Bimoto, brought their own version of the R8 to the Dubai Motor Show. Although visually subtle, a turbocharger system has been added to the 4.2-liter V8 for a total of 888 bhp and 610 lb-ft torque. 0-60 mph can be achieved in 3.0 seconds flat, and top speed is limited to 223 mph. MTM built the car, fittingly named the R888, as a one-off for a European customer, but they will gladly build more of them for a mere 280,000 each.

    I've got no issue with the HREs. I wouldn't mind black calipers though...

    I promise it looks better in person. I saw the combo at the frankfurt auto show and loved it.
