Illustration for article titled MTM Supercharges Audi R8, Takes Power Up To 560 HP

We’re seriously impressed with MTM’s take on the Audi R8 — not just with the performance made possible by the supercharged engine’s 560 HP and 428 lb-ft of torque, but with the way it looks. The tuning company has done a much better job at making the svelte R8 both more aggressive and more elegant than the Audi R8 V12 TDI concept.
Those headline power figures are reached courtesy of a supercharger, and reduce the 0-60 sprint to 3.9 seconds while bumping the top speed up to 196 mph. For reference, those figures are believed to be close to those expected from the upcoming Audi R8 V10. But just look at that white paint and the all-black accents. Audi should offer the standard car in these colors instead of the questionable silver-on-silver. Things stay incredible inside too, with the addition of some very concept car-esque carbon race buckets lined with geometric white pads. If only every tuner car looked this good. [via WCF]
