The garden variety Audi R8 supercar is already fast enough as is, but it still wasn’t fast enough for the kooks at MTM. They’ve decided to build their own version of the R8 for the Dubai Motor Show and this car rocks 888 base horsepower. That’s a lot of ponies!
MTM is based out of Germany and it is the same firm that was responsible for creating the twin-engine 740hp Audi TT Bimoto. Their take on the Audi R8 isn’t a far cry from the regular R8 in terms of outward cosmetics, but when you peep the powerplant, things change. They’ve added a specialized turbocharger system to the 4.2L V8, bumping the horsepower to 888 and the torque to 641 lbs-ft.
With this modification, the R8 is now capable of doing the 0-60mph run in 3.0 seconds flat before topping out at 223mph. MTM has christened this beast as the Audi R888 and it’s a one-off creation for an unnamed European customer. He or she paid 280,000 Euros for the car.
