The A3 Sportback is one of the family-friendly models in the Audi range. The RS3 variant does not compromise on any of the essential practical characteristics of its more basic cousin, whilst having completely different performance aspirations. With 367 PS up its sleeve, even serious sports cars can struggle to match its top speed of 155 mph (or 174 mph on request) and 0-62 mph sprint time of 4.3 seconds in standard trim. More…

Audi doesn’t build an RS 1 model, but even if they did we think it’d be more tame than this car. MTM has gone all-out in its development of the platform based on a super limited A1 quattro model. The net result appears a bit more akin to Mattias Ekstrom’s rallycross S1 than it is to a peak factory performance RS-car. More…

It’s safe to say that nobody has ever accused Audi’s 560hp RS 6 of being slow, but plenty have thought that it could use a bit more power. Eager to meet this slightly irrational demand, the minds at German tuning firm Motoren-Technic-Mayer (MTM) have created the RS 6 Clubsport, a 760hp interpretation of Audi’s largest avant, complete […] More…

For 25 years MTM has been marketing very powerful, special and craftsman-like interpretations of premium marques such as Audi, Volkswagen, Lamborghini, Bentley and Porsche. The company will be exhibiting at the Geneva Salon for the fifth successive year and presents once again some exciting new models: none more so than the MTM S8 Talladega S.

MTM Audi RS Q3 2.5 TFSI. One Cross Crossover.

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…

The Essen Motor Show is about to begin and as such the big German tuning houses have begun to reveal some of their latest work. First up is MTM and this very interesting S8 Talladega build. Though they don’t call it an RS 8, you get the picture with RS-inspired bumper design, carbon fiber accents and even hexagonal stitching on the seats. Oh yeah, it’s got 760 hp. More…

MTM Tunes Audi RS 6 Avant

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.

Thomas Schöffler converted his large advantage in the GT Sprint International Series into the title win in the season’s finale at Vallelunga. The German, who was assisted in the title hunt in the Audi R8 LMS of Team MTM by his Swedish colleague Johan Kristoffersson, only required an eighth and a ninth place. After eight race weekends, Schöffler has collected 226 points on his tally and thus has 28 more than his closest rival. More…
