MTM R8 Rear Wheel Drive

MTM presents: Audi R8 with rear wheel drive and 560 HP (412 kW)

MTM R8 GT3-2 undertakes a new driving experience behind the Audi steering wheel
-560 HP (412 kW), 580 Nm, 3.9 seconds, Vmax 317 km/h;
-Technical finesse and details for an exceptional sportscar.

The question is legitimate and short:

-A street-legal Audi R8 with rear wheel drive and with a 560 HP supercharged engine?

The answer is also short:

- YES IT EXISTS!

At MTM the snow is hardly gone from the streets that the noble tuner from Wettsetten is announcing their latetest project: the MTM R8 GT3-2, with the last digit standing for the number of powered wheels. The car has 560 supercharged HP, accelerates from 0 to 100 in 4 seconds and goes easily beyond the 300 km/hr barrier. It is no 'QUATTRO' but a modified R8 with rear wheel drive from the Audi refiner MTM. This new concept promises a complete new driving experience behind the wheel and pure driving pleasure, which comes a lot from technical details and finesse. The result is a perfect and exceptionnal sprotscar.

The most exciting fact about the MTM R8 GT3-2 is definitely the rear wheel drive concept. It was developed by the technical specialists around Roland Mayer. With differential lock and new adjustments, the GT3-2 floats presently with its driving concept as the only one RWD Street-legal Audi, in the footsteps of the Audi high powered cars that are challenging the DTM or the GT Series. Those who are searching for an "Ingolst dter" with four rings and rear wheel drive have to look back more than four decades ago.

MTM from Wettstetten/Ingolstadt would not be one of the leading Audi-refiners in the world if they didn't care for technical details in order to provide maximum driving dynamics. The first thing to be mentioned is the supercharged 4.2 FSI engine, producing 560 HP (412 kW) at 7.750 RPM and a torque of 580 Nm at 5.500 RPM. Enough power to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and take the speedometer needle up to 317 km/h.
The
sound goes together with the power, thanks to a special exhaust system in export version - without rear pipes and without throttle valves.
Unmistakable.

So much power needs a MTM suspension kit, which has several settings options, also in the built-in condition, and which is well adjusted with the lightweight and solid MTM forged wheels on Dunlop Sport Maxx GT / Michelin Cup Sport tyres. The 20" rims in the size 9x20 ET 42 (front axle) and 12,5x20 ET 60 (rear axle) shelter the 380 x 34 mm - punched, ventilated
- MTM brake system.

With the R8 GT3-2, MTM has also worked on the exterior appearance, which is very particular for the technical specialists from Wettstetten, who usually only make slight optical changes on their sports cars. In this case, the carbon fibre front spoiler, side skirt and rear wing ensure a better air flow.

This MTM offer not only refers to new cars - also people who already own a
R8 have the possibility to convert it into a R8 GT3-2. For more information, please contact MTM in Wettstetten.
