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.
The new programme MTM individual meets all customer wishes and
creates a unique automobile. Therefore, MTM allows an
individualisation of the car, as far as the ideas of the customer
reach. Nothing can top this exclusivity.
Motoren Technik Mayer (MTM) now shows what the individualisation
programme offers. Following customer requirements, the automobile
manufacturer from the Upper Bavarian town Wettstetten has modified
the Audi R8 to such an extent that a unique sports machine has been
created and there is no second car like that.
The most striking 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. With this work, MTM confirms its love for details. As apart
from the large-scale paint of the aluminium body, the
internationally successful car refiner also painted areas in the
engine compartment and has left further accents all over the car.
Therefore, not only the colouring is unique, but also the
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
But the striking colour does not reduce MTM´s own stylishness.
Therefore, Motoren Technik Mayer sticks to the characteristic two-colour
paint which is typical for the Audi R8. Behind the doors an area
measuring 12 inches and painted in glossy black renders a contrast
and gives the car a distinctive R8-appearance.
MTM-Compressor confers the
V8-engine with 560 hp
And MTM would not be MTM
when they settled with a new paint. Therefore, they also offer a
significant performance enhancement. The especially developed
compressor technology which made MTM famous all over the world,
propels the performance of the V8-engine with 4.2 litres cubic
capacity from 420 hp (313 kW) by a third up to breathtaking 560 hp
(418 kW). Also the maximum torque increases by 34 percent from 430
to 580 Newton metres. MTM also offers this enormous 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.
With the Audi R8 makeover, the world-wide renowned automobile
manufacturer confirms that there are no limits to individual cars
from MTM. This leads to exclusive automobiles in the highest
production quality, precisely designed according to the wishes of
