MTM from Wettstetten will be represented at the Autosalon in Geneva from the 3. - 13. March 2011 with two cars. In hall 5 MTM, car manufacturer and upgrading specialist, presents not only technical details and masterstrokes but also a visual highlight, which lets the exhibition hall shine in the truest sense of the word. The MTM R8 Biturbo with 777 hp / 571 kW and a top speed of more than 350 km/h was highly polished by MTM , this unique specimen with a worth of over 400.000 € was depainted completely in a special procedure and the aluminum chassis was polished in more than 700 working hours - all handmade . As well to see at the Autosalon: the MTM TT RS in the MTM design with 472 hp / 347 kW, which reached a top speed of 312 km/h at first test drives in Nardo.

0 - 200 km/h in 9.37 sec
0 - 300 km/h in 19.42 sec

The test drives on the highspeed track in Nardo in South Italy in September last year showed that the car can be moved in a sporty way also under extreme conditions, full load drives and extreme temperatures. MTM uses a coil over kit with adjustable suspensions, 20" forged rims in the Bimoto design and MTM brakes 380 x 34 mm dimpled with 8-piston calipers at the front and rear axle.

The V10 Biturbo engine was already tested successfully in the RS6 with up to 740 hp / 544 kW and a top speed of 362,5 km/h in Nardo.

Real uniqueness you can also find at the design: The paint of the R8 was completely removed and highly polished in over 700 working hours. The plastic attaching parts have been replaced by carbon parts or with a special paint polished. An adjustable rear spoiler and a front lip out of carbon improve the aerodynamic and stabilize the car. The interior leather shows that MTM Individual has a perfect design.
