Polished chrome Audi R8 hits the market in Germany

Can you see yourself in this car? If the answer is yes – and you're not just referring to its mirror-like livery – then good news, it's up for sale and can be yours for just shy of £400,000.

The first generation Audi R8 received a makeover at the hands of equally German tuner MTM three-years ago, and one of the major modifications was the stripping and polishing of its bodywork panels – a process which took more than 700 hours of work.
