Just starting to tap into the 4.0 TFSI’s potential.
The Audi RS 6 is an incredible machine. It’s a high-powered, efficient super sedan that is capable of supercar performance right from the factory. Then there’s the newest upgrade from MTM – Motoren Technik Mayer that gives the Audi RS 6 supercar-like performance and power figures that catapult it to triple-digit speeds in mere seconds.
“We tested and measured this variant in Nardo – everything genuine, everything okay” said Roland Mayer, founder of MTM. “The technical potential of the standard version permits different variations that we will carefully evaluate for their suitability for everyday use.”
The 4.0 TFSI twin-turbocharged V-8 engine is packed with potential and MTM was able to tap into some of it with their new upgrade package. The most powerful package from the German company to-date includes a new engine tune and a stainless steel exhaust system with front adjustable flaps and muffler to reduce backpressure. The package pushes output all the way up to 722 horsepower and 653 lb-ft. of torque, sending the Audi RS 6 to 62 mph in 3.3 seconds, 124 mph in 11.3 seconds, 155 mph in just under 19 seconds, and to a top speed of 211 mph. Those by themselves are supercar performance numbers out of an all-wheel drive premium sports sedan.
All that power does not come without a supporting cast. MTM offers a wide range of chassis options for the Audi RS 6. Putting all that power to the road are 20-inch MTM Bitmoto wheels with 285/35 ZR 20 Michelin Pilot Supersports tires hiding Brembo six-piston monoblock calipers with drilled 405 x 36 mm discs. Coilovers, springs, or air suspension upgrades are available for the RS 6 and help to improve handling for the high-speed sedan. Aluminum pedals, new floor mats, carbon fiber paddle shifters, and other modifications can be installed to add a touch of sport to the interior.
The MTM full engine tune for the Audi RS 6 is available for 13,751.80 Euros while the stainless steel exhaust is priced at 4,000 Euros. Customers can also choose from the wide range of other available upgrades from MTM.
