MTM Unleashes Three Reinterpreted Audis at the Geneva Motor Show
Audi S8 Talladega S, RS6 Clubsport and S3 Cabrio are the MTM remastered models which will gather the glances at the Geneva Motor Show next week. Starting with the first mentioned, the vehicle joins the Audi 200 in its aims to show exhilarating performance records at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. Although the current Talladega S is larger, it is still capable of the same velocity due to its powerful unit.
Precisely, the engine produces 802 hp (590 kW) but this is not everything that the car can show-off with. MTM has given it the magic of luxurious interior imbued with carbon-fiber and hand-crafted leather.
At MTM's Geneva stand we will also see the RS6 Clubsport that is 80 kg lighter than before. The 4.0 TFSi Quattro engine was tweaked and now delivers up to 760 hp (559 kW) and 945 Nm (697 lb-ft) of torque. The transmission here is the 8-speed Tiptronic gearbox and it helps the car score a 3 seconds 0-100 km/h acceleration sprint.
At last, the final Audi in the trio is the S3 Cabrio that stands proud with enhanced 2.0 TFSi unit. The power output is now 426 hp (313 kW) and the torque reaches 530 Nm (391 lb-ft). It is therefore no surprise that the open-top S3 can reach the 100 km/h in a mere 5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 270 km/h.
If you wonder about the modification, well MTM has ensured that the powerplant gets a turbocharger and ECU mapping as well as modified Cat and exhaust system. Each of the cars has also received chassis refinement. Which one would you like to drive?
