Polished MTM R8 Biturbo - Click above for high-res image gallery

The hand-polished MTM Audi R8 V10 BiTurbo has come out from its shell with its little brother, the MTM Audi TTRS, in Geneva today. We said previously this thing would be visible from space, and it looks like we were right. The naked polished aluminum body work took nearly 700 man hours to get looking just so, and we gotta say, it was worth it.

The MTM R8 BiTurbo sports the mirror-like good looks of Audi's seminal 1991 Avus Quattro concept (remember that?), but packs a Joe Louis-worthy knockout punch with twin hairdryers bolted to its 5.2-liter FSI V10, routed through the stock R8 V10's six-speed manual. The worked-over mill is good for 777 hp and a top speed of 224 mph.

Delicious.
