MTM TT-RS - the new chartbuster
Looks like the competition for the fastest tuned Audi TT-RS among the German tuners is still ‘ON'! After the release of the new, more powerful ABT TT-RS (501 horsepower and Vmax - 292 km/h) from the last month, MTM has officially unveiled its answer, a 472 horsepower TT-RS with 312 km/h top speed.
Tested on the Nardo highspeed track in Italy, the all-new MTM TT-RS has also recorded better time for the zero to 100 km/h acceleration sprint - 3.9 seconds – than its more powerful ABT rival.
Roland Mayer, owner and Head of the technical Department at MTM shared: "It's not decisive what we measure on the dynamometer but how many bhp you get on the road. The right master plan has a bigger effect on driving dynamics, acceleration times and maximum speed than the search for a maximum in performance values."
The MTM's newly retrofitted TT-RS boasts under its hood a smartly optimized ECU, a powerful turbo charger, as well as a complete MTM exhaust unit. At the Nardo circuit, the ultra-fast MTM ride was packed with a set of 20-inch Bimoto lightweight alloys wrapped in high-performance Dunlop Sport Maxx tires.
The extensive 472-hp engine conversion by MTM has a price tag of about 14.500 Euro, including tax and installation. The 20-inch Bimoto forged rims with mounted 15-inch brakes with eight-piston calipers (front axle) are priced at 9.973 Euro.
MTM has further announced that a 500 + horsepower version of the ride is already in works.
