Originally the Audi Q3 wasn’t the sort of car that took to the streets to dislocate people’s necks. It tended to be sober, was a good family friend and endowed with all the ingredients which mobile man does not wish to be without when travelling by car. Then the Q3 caught the attention of interested parties who don’t like to do without performance as a matter of principle. It was for this clientèle that Audi created the RS Q3 2.5 TFSI quattro. The powerful five-cylinder engine generates 310 hp, and that was the end of the steady old friend, guardian of hearth and home. Its image is now more akin to the road-going go-getter than the mother-in-law’s blue-eyed boy. More…

Its full name: Audi RS6 4.0 TFSI quattro; and even it doesn’t exactly hang around when its bi-turbo eight-cylinder engine is suitably motivated. 560 hp and 700 Nm of torque make for irresistible traction. This Avant accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in not even four seconds. But despite that – Roland Mayer and his MTM team have done their stuff and breathed even more life into the power bundle – the current version boasts 722 hp and 885 Nm. This knocks a few tenths of a second off the sprint to 100 km/h, now achieved in exactly 3.3 seconds, 200 km/h is clocked in 11.3 seconds and on its way to its top speed of 340 km/h the 250 km/h mark is passed in a shade under 19 seconds.

Parked on the pier of Monte Carlo’s harbour, its restrained elegance might be overlooked: at first glance an Audi S8, black, long and crouching on fat paws: 305/30 ZR 21, fitted on 10.5 inch wide mtm bimoto wheels. Majestic even when stationary, blending with the backdrop of the beautiful and fast yachts, as if to the manner born. However, a second glance espies three tell-tale letters testifying to this saloon’s special status. mtm, a discreet white on black, is to be discerned forward of the rear wheel housing. Namely, a special Audi S8, one from the high tech laboratory of mtm, a stone’s throw from the premium manufacturer in Ingolstadt.

Motorists hate black ice like the devil hates holy water. No wonder, because when the going is icy, directional stability is all too often an unpredictable lottery.

The Finn Janne Laitinen clocked 331.61 km/h on the thick ice sheet of the Gulf of Bothnia on 6 March 2011. More…
