The instant we’ve come across this stunning 2013 Audi R8 V10 Biturbo GT by MTM, our mind was flooded by memories regarding the Audi R8 V10 Biturbo tuned up by MTM back in 2011. The 2013 edition is in fact some sort of revision of the previous package, with pretty staggering results to be honest.

The 2011 package for the R8 used to lift the output of the car to as much as 777 HP, but the GT is now able to deliver a mind-boggling 802 HP at 6,980 RPM and 892 Nm (657 lb-ft) of torque between 2,750 RPM and 6,280 RPM. Considering these numbers, the car is able to hit a maximum speed of 223 mph (360 km/h) and to accelerate from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3 seconds. The 124 mph (200 km/h) and 186 mph (300 km/h) markers will be reached in 10.6 seconds and respectively 26 seconds.

The styling side has pretty much been left untouched, the R8 having been fitted with a 3-way adjustable special chassis alongside a brand new set of wheels measuring 9×20 inches at the front and 12.5×20 inches at the rear. The rims were wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. In terms of braking systems, the R8 was equipped with 380 x 34 mm (14.96 x 1.33 inch) dimpled rotors pressed by 8-piston calipers. In addition, an MTM coilover suspensions by KW with adjustable damping make sure the beast turns as easy as possible.

The price one needs to pay for such an exquisite package is quite exorbitant, though. The MTM Audi R8 V10 Biturbo GT costs a dazzling €450,000 or approximately $600,000 at current exchange rates.
