As you know German tuner MTM releases a new Audi R8 every half an hour! Here’s the very latest based on the R8 V10, build for showing off at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. It packs 777 horsepower.

Now, we thought everybody is grown out of chrome foil thing nonsense but MTM decided it’s very cool to give this R8 that treatment. Well, it isn’t! Driving around in a chrome painted car will make you look like a colossal idiot.

Looks aside, this car is an engineering marvel. They managed to increase the power of that Lamborghini-derived V10 from 525 to a massive 777 hp with 888 Nm torque. That of course has a profound effect on performance. Check out these numbers: 0 – 100 in 3,0 sec, 0 – 200 in 9,37 sec, 0 – 300 in 19,42 sec, top speed 350+ km/h.

The car also benefis from a coil over kit with adjustable suspensions, 20? forged rims in the Bimoto design and MTM brakes 380 x 34 mm dimpled with 8-piston calipers at the front and rear axle.

Also on display at Geneva is the MTM TT RS. They have given this little fella a new urst of energy so it can now produce 472 hp. That is an awful lot in a car the size of a shoe!

Torque (max.): 600 Nm at 4400 rpm
