The current Audi S8 is no doubt a great car, but German tuner MTM decided the luxury sports sedan can do much more than it does from the factory. In its base setup, the S8 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter, V-8 engine that delivers 520 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque.
MTM went ahead and tweaked the output to a mighty 650 horsepower at 5,950 rpm and 590 pound-feet of torque delivered between 1,700 rpm and 5,500 rpm. With the extra power, the MTM S8 can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just four seconds and up to a top speed of 181 mph.
The engine is mated to an eight-speed tiptronic transmission, and a new brake system with 405-by-38 mm (15.9-by-1.5-inch) brake discs on the front axle help drag the beast to a halt.
The MTM S8 featured here is priced at €155,000 — about $200,000 at the current exchange rates — but you can buy the performnace components a la carte.
