Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro: MTM’s new green ride

Audi R8 MTM
Maybe not our color of choice, but a heck of a mod by MTM and this Audi R8.

The tuner’s latest program for the R8 is without doubt highlighted by its “Porsche 2D8” green paint scheme – the same as the 911 GT3 RS.

Showing MTM’s attention for detail, on all four black brake calipers and on the black fuel cap there is a green “R8” nameplate. The ultra-light MTM Bimoto light alloy wheels measuring in at 20in also features a green nameplate stating “MTM forged” on one of the spokes.

In the interior, the same color repeats at the seams of a suede steering wheel and the “Quattro” nameplate on the glove department flap. Also, the “R8” logo on the gear-shift shines in green.

Thankfully, MTM hasn’t left the mechanicals untouched. A new supercharger kit for the R8’s 4.2L V8 engine that boosts output to 560hp (418kW) and 427lb-ft (580Nm) of torque is available, but owners of the new V10 model haven’t been left in the dark. MTM also offers an ECU upgrade for the 5.2L FSI engine, which lifts output to 560 hp (418 kW) as well.
