The Top Marques Monaco isn’t just for luxury and super car automakers to display their newest creations; no, this event gets its fair share of tuning projects too. One project blindingly taking center stage in Monaco is this Audi R8 V10 by MTM. The German tuner took special care to prepare this sports car, S.W.A.T. style.

The Audi R8 V10 S.W.A.T Edition by MTM is based on the firm’s latest Biturbo version of the R8 that features a 5.0L V10 engine delivering an impressive 777 hp. This is just enough power to sprint the MTM R8 from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, from 0 to 124 in 9.37 seconds, and allow it to hit a top speed of 217 mph. This special Audi R8 V10 S.W.A.T Edition features a 100% chrome wrap combined with a S.W.A.T theme. Considering S.W.A.T stands for Special Weapons and Tactics, we’re thinking the Audi could be the team’s special weapon.

Of course, it would be impractical to drive this thing to any emergency situation, but maybe it can be a gift for agent of the year or something along those lines. Either way, it is a shining example of what a tuner can accomplish when wanting a vehicle to stand out amongst the more grandoise vehicles at the Top Marques Monaco.

Is this car is not for sale and exclusive only for SWAT? I want to have one of this since I find out that this car will perform well than Lamborghini.

The body paint really looks great and awesome but not with this S.W.A.T vehicle. I think it is over designed with that. However, I’m so impressed with its powerful engine output.

The r8 has been the most impressive production of the Audi. I’m really impressed with its figure performance and deliver power output.

The figure performance of the car is kind of impressive. Its styling is kind of great and it seems faster in terms of 0-60 mph. I would love to its performance with the remove top speed.

hmm. I think this production needs to be consider less for the Audi have planned on modifying the RS-series! I wan to see a figure performance the same with this! BTW< I bet with that speedy performance , let’s just see if the cops can chase those evil doer!

It seems that the speed performance of the car in future generation have a horsepower of around 700+ hp and I have seen a lot of car manufacture uses a more modern technology! Well, I find it kinda good for its not really a gas guzzler car.

Even before I was impressed with the performance of the R8! And I think for the v10 engine its power output is kind of impressive! If given a chance I would definitely test drive this car myself!

I wonder of this car would be a police car or what? However, the speed performance of the car is great though it still have a speed limit! Is this production is exclusive for the law enforcement only?

  (394) posted on 05.16.2011

IMO, a high performing car that has a good high power output is really appropriate to be used by law enforcement to chase away the criminals.

  (419) posted on 05.16.2011

Well, its a good thing that they have made an impressive high performing car for law enforcement! BTW, Although it has an high power output, its quite shocking that its still deliver a better fuel economy!

I cant figure out the best type of these car, Its like a strange car to me. It would be great if it will consider the exterior outlook of this kind of hybrid.

  (1211) posted on 04.26.2011

Well, Its not a good idea of hybrid car. I think this is only left out because of its exterior looks, And not a good one for emergency purposes.

  (676) posted on 04.20.2011

This engine delivers an impressive a special future itself. But its not usual to use for any emergency purposes.

That’s why I am not really fond of all of these weirdly named theme cars. They always leave you scratching your head as to why they are named as such.

We were hoping Top Marques would unveil those Audi Executive Armchairs in Monaco. BrandedAlive would be proud.

@Xanthias, I think it’s for sale. The SWAT emblems are just there for the overall theme. And they would probably allowed you to customized it with your own theme.

If they could attain the horsepower and the sprint of this car I find it quite impressive! I bet this would be much awaited during the Top Marques Monaco.

Well, in that case, this one would also be a bad gift to an outstanding SWAT officer. You will only be letting the crooks know who your best man is if they see him driving this baby.

  (599) posted on 04.18.2011

And if they are indeed going to do a real SWAT car, it probably won’t be as flashy as this one. If it were, the crooks would easily spot this one a mile away and that large SWAT logo will easily give it away.

  (708) posted on 04.15.2011

Well, if they would be doing a real SWAT car, they would probably keep it under wraps and not show it in any car show. After all, that one would really be strictly for authorities’ use.
