Bring on the power and speed.
MTM – Motoren Technik Mayer has been working their tuning magic with Audi, Volkswagen, Lamborghini, Bentley, Porsche, and others for quite a long time. Their experience has set them apart from the pack and into the upper echelon of aftermarket companies. As the 2015 Geneva Motor Show approaches, MTM has previewed three of their tuned and tailored Audi models that will be making their presence known at the show – the MTM S8 Talladega S, MTM RS6 Clubsport, and MTM S3 Cabrio.
“As an Informatics and Mechanical Engineer I have never strayed from this path. Our measures to increase power are always repeatable, successful and so assured that we are able to guarantee them. Our future is aptly described as ‘sporty, special and supreme,’” said Roland Mayer, CEO of MTM.
The MTM S8 Talladega S is the high-speed, luxury monster that draws its roots from the Audi 200 that set speed records at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama in 1986. The MTM S8 Talladega S has seen its 4.0 TFSI V-8 engine tuned to the max with 791 horsepower while carbon fiber aerodynamics and other components allow for the extreme triple-digit speeds to be reached. All this with a handcrafted leather interior.
Alongside the mighty S8 Talladega S will be the MTM RS6 Clubsport. The hardcore wagon sports a weight reduction of 176 lbs. and a tuned 4.0 TFSI V-8 engine spouting off with 750 horsepower and 697 lb-ft. of torque from 1,700 to 5,500 RPM. That’s good enough for a 0-62 mph time just over three seconds while 186 mph comes in after 31 seconds.
The last member of the group in Geneva is the MTM Audi S3 Cabrio. The drop top Audi was given a new turbocharger, MTM Engine Management Unit, and modified catalytic converter and exhaust system. This allows the 2.0-liter, turbocharged inline-four to produce 420 horsepower and 391 lb-ft. of torque, sending it to 62 mph in less than five seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 168 mph.
All three of the new MTM models will come with various chassis, interior, and exterior upgrades that allow for their incredible performance and ensure safety.
MTM will be showcasing its new models at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show at Stand 2045 in Hall 2 starting March 3rd.
