Check this bad boy out, it`s not actually solid silver but it is polished Aluminum, finished in a clear protective lacquer. The car was put together for a Saudi Sheikh buyer by Roland Mayer and his team at mtm (Motoren Technik Mayer) tuning in Germany.
This particular design project is known as the Audi A8 D3 polished. Before applying the final, clear finishing coat the metal surface of the car had to be totally free of any marks or defects because retouching later was not possible.
Of course the plastic bits could not be polished, parts like front and rear bumpers, spoilers, exterior mirrors, side skirts and fuel tank cap. These parts were finished in a special enamel paint to match the polished metal surfaces before they too received a clear finishing coat.
Mtm developed its own `discreet` body kit for the car. Inside, the door sills and floor mats have been stamped with the company’s logo.
The polished A8 is powered by a supercharged 4.2-litre V8 that delivers about 336kW of power and 530Nm of torque. To accommodate the extra performance the speedo can show more than 300 km/h.
The price has not yet been divulged BUT I can only imagine its around £100,000.
