MTM Audi R8


Updated on

The German tuners from Motoren Technik Mayer have dressed up and supercharged the MTM Audi R8 GT3-2. MTM’s 420 hp V8 dropped the Quattro four wheel drive system, making the rear axle responsible for the power improvements. The tuning firm supercharged the 4.2-liter V8 to produce 560 hp at 7,750 rpm and 580 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. Featuring a limited slip differential, the power is sent via a bespoke rear wheel drive system. The MTM specialists claim that this is only street legal Audi R8 with the rear wheel drive system.

MTM said that this Audi R8 project was inspired from the DTM and GT Audi racing cars. The R8 has a threatening sound thanks to a free flowing exhaust system hooked up underneath. To handle the extra power, the tuners installed a suspension kit featuring multiple settings to allow the driver to switch between road and track conditions. At the track, the MTM Audi R8 GT3-2 was able to reach 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, and max out at 317 km/h.

Motoren Technik Mayer also fitted the R8 with a new braking system with 380×4 mm drilled and ventilated discs. On all fours you will find 20-inch MTM forged wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx GT or Michelin Cup Sport tires. Aerodynamic improvements include a new carbon fiber front spoiler, side skirts, and large rear wing.
