Most likely a family with some type of royal connection with some backing of oil money.

You'd have to hold your head high in hopes that you'd be able to see where you were going. The reflection from that hood has to be a killer.

My wife would kill me if I chromed our A8. She attracts enough attention in it as it is.

Is the skin of the A8 aluminum as the unibody is? Could it be polished rather than painted (at least the metal parts)?

mtm Audi A8 D3 polished


In Dubai the mtm Audi A8 polished was the eye-catcher. The car was analysed and in many studies the enamel varnish of the aluminium car body was removed. Furthermore the car was cleaned. After that, the car body was poslihed with fine abrasive paper as well as special polishes to high gloss. The blank dress must not have any defects, because of the fact that retouching was not possible. Finaly the car was protected with special clear varnish against enivornmental impacts.
Because of the fact that it is impossible to polish plastic parts like front- and rearspoiler, mirror house, side sillboard or also fuel tank cap, they were enameled in a complex way to get a chrom effect. Finaly they were polished with clear varnish.

Optics:
For the new top model of the Audi family we developed a discreet aerodynamic package for better output. The front- and rearspoiler is available in different materials like Carbon, aluminium vaporized or to enamel in the current car-color. In the interieur there are entrance strips as well as door mats with mtm logo available. A steering wheel can be ordered soon. The kingly leather accouterment can be worked over in the way you want to get a kingly ambiance in the car. The offer of interieur parts are rounded off by changed instruments scales - the speed indicator can show more than 300 km/h.

Engine:
Between the cylinder heads of the 4,2 litres V8-aggregate a compressor is put. Thus a performance of ca. 450hp and a torque of 530 Nm is reached which is leading to excellent driving performance.

Suspension:
The air-spring-chassis was modified, so that a programming of speed dependent heights is possible.

Wheels:
The 9,5x19" mtm-bimoto rims are SLC coated and snuggle excellent to the high gloss polished blank dress of the luxury car.

Wonder how it'd look at night when you're driving up to it and your headlights are reflected right back at you... reminds me of my friend who wanted to paint his Colt Vista with that reflective road striping paint.
