MTM Press Release
A 606 hp, road legal super sports car with MICHELIN tyres takes almost two seconds off the existing lap record.
The time was officially clocked at 1:29.89 as Bild Sporstscars test driver Guido Naumann sped across the finishing line at the Sachsenring. “Two laps to warm up the tyres, then go for broke”, Naumann commented coolly after his record lap. “The R8 LMS’s 606 hp certainly helped but the MICHELIN Sport Cup’s qualities - size 295/30 ZR 18s on the front, 345/30 ZR 19s at the rear” - also stood me in good stead.
The experienced tester delivered a clear testimony for the mtm R8: “The combination of power and grip resulted in a comparatively smooth record run. The record lap was a doddle.”
The extra driving fun will set you back less than 4,000 euros at mtm; if you make an appointment the tyres can be fitted while you wait.
