The Audi R8 V10 tuned within an inch of its life by MTM recently set the fastest lap time at the Tuner Grand Prix 2013 and DrGumoLunatic on YouTube was lucky enough to film the following video of this incredible race-derived machine.
This particular Audi R8 V10 by MTM has been upgraded to now 606hp from its 5.2-liter Lamborghini-derived V10 engine and managed to sprint around the 2.6km Motordrome Short Course in just 1:06.695 minutes. The MTM R8 was running on BBS wheels with central locking and wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.
Managing Director of MTM, Roland Mayer said, “Armed with a stopwatch and under comparable conditions it’s always good to show what a car prepared by MTM is capable of. On some another occasion, we will then demonstrate that our success is built not just on peak performance but on our reliability as well.”
The Tuner Grand Prix has become an annual tradition for German tuning brands and the final trophy is highly coveted. Last year, 24 different companies took part and an estimated 30,000 visitors came to the Hockenheimring to take a look at the cars and the action. The winner of each class is determined by Sport Auto drivers who set five fast lap times. The average of the five fastest laps is then calculated and the highest score wins its respective class.
