German tuning company, MTM , is prepared to make quite an impression at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show and they’re doing so in a very colorful and patriotic manner.

One of the vehicle’s that are set to be on-hand in Geneva is a modified version of the Audi Q3 2.0 TFSI quattro . The obvious take-away from this particular Q3 is the vinyl body wrap which harkens to the colors of the German national flag. In addition to the visual homage to their motherland, MTM also put in a slew of new components, including a new rear diffuser, a lowered suspension, and a new set of 20" Bimoto alloy wheels wrapped in ZR rubber tires with a Brembo brake system that comes with 380 X 34 mm discs gripped by 8-piston calipers.

Under the hood of the Q3, MTM installed a new turbocharger kit that saw the output of the Audi crossover’s 2.0-liter TFSI engine spike from 170 horsepower all the way up to an impressive 310 horsepower. The significant bump in output - almost double! - allows the MTM-tuned Q3 to hit 0-62 mph in just 6.1 seconds with a increased top speed of 155 mph.

German tuner, MTM , has decided that even the most powerful A3 in Audi ’s line-up can be improved significantly. Their new package based off of the RS3 Sportback 2.5 TFSI provides the sports hatch with a drool-inducing boost in power and some signature coloring.

Getting the RS3 to a level of supremacy took a series of high tech components, including a modified turbocharger that gives the engine a high-powered air supply. This turbocharger is teamed up with modified spark plugs that ensure the optimal firing of the combustion chambers and a new exhaust system specifically tailored to suit the different power variants. Final counts come in with an output of 472 HP, up from the RS3’s standard 340 HP.

A jump of 132 HP is nothing to shake a stick at so nothing else needed to be done for the Audi to shine. Of course, it was mandatory that MTM splash their customary exterior color combination of black, orange, and white just in case the home of this package was questioned.

Pricing for this package comes in at 10,600 Euro - or about $14,100 at the current exchange rates.

German tuner, MTM , has unveiled a new tuning package for the Audi A7 3.0 TDI Quattro. The package includes a new suspension system, new wheels and an impressive engine update - offered in two different levels. First deliveries will be made at the end of August 2011.

In its standard version, Audi ’s 3.0 liter delivers a total of 245 HP and a peak torque of 368 lbs-ft. MTM, however, has found a solution to improve the engine’s total output with two different levels of updates. In the first package the output has been increased to 285 HP and 427 lb-ft and the second sees an increase to 300 hp and 442 lbs-ft of torque. Both updates take only 90 minutes and include an M-Cantronic system, an updated control unit, and a perfectly adjusted exhaust system with four 89mm tail pipes. This is a visible sign that an MTM diesel is expected rather on the fast lane than on the slow lane. Top speed has been increased to 163 mph.

A new suspension is currently being tested and will soon be available for active operation. The tuner is offering a new set of wheels, size 20" in combination with 20mm or 30mm wheel spacers as part of the MTM product range.

Typically, when we hear about vehicles climbing up to speeds of over 200 mph, we think of high performance vehicles like the Bugatti Veyron or the SSC Tuatara. Not once have we ever thought of a small car like the Audi A1 achieving such a feat. It was probably this assumption that led tuning firm, MTM , to completely make over the A1 so that it became a snarling speed machine, capable of hitting a top speed of 201 mph at the Nardo Highspeed Test.

Every year, modified supercars head on over to the Nardo test track to see what they are capable of, but this year, MTM’s Audi A1 decided to crash the party and show the 9FF Porsche 911 GT3 , MKB McLaren SLR , G-Power BMW M3 , and SpeedArt Porsche Cayenne Turbo just how it’s done. With an MTM tuning package consisting of various upgrades, the A1 delivers a total of 500 HP and 442 lb-ft of torque. 500 HP! When equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox and limited slip differential, the car will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of the aforementioned 201 mph.

Adding a few more bells and whistles to the heart-thumping power, MTM gave the small car a new set of 18" MTM bimoto rims with a 9-spoke race design, a new set of MTM-Spacers (20 mm per axle), upgraded brakes, and a lowered suspension.

And to think, just one year ago, MTM released their new package for the A1 that had no type of engine upgrades. It may have taken them a year to get the engine tweaks just right, but the result was certainly worth the wait. That is, if anyone plans on racing an Audi A1 anytime soon.


The Top Marques Monaco isn’t just for luxury and super car automakers to display their newest creations; no, this event gets its fair share of tuning projects too. One project blindingly taking center stage in Monaco is this Audi R8 V10 by MTM. The German tuner took special care to prepare this sports car, S.W.A.T. style.

The Audi R8 V10 S.W.A.T Edition by MTM is based on the firm’s latest Biturbo version of the R8 that features a 5.0L V10 engine delivering an impressive 777 hp. This is just enough power to sprint the MTM R8 from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, from 0 to 124 in 9.37 seconds, and allow it to hit a top speed of 217 mph. This special Audi R8 V10 S.W.A.T Edition features a 100% chrome wrap combined with a S.W.A.T theme. Considering S.W.A.T stands for Special Weapons and Tactics, we’re thinking the Audi could be the team’s special weapon.

Of course, it would be impractical to drive this thing to any emergency situation, but maybe it can be a gift for agent of the year or something along those lines. Either way, it is a shining example of what a tuner can accomplish when wanting a vehicle to stand out amongst the more grandoise vehicles at the Top Marques Monaco.


Just a few months ago, we caught wind of a prototype vehicle parked outside of tuning company MTM’s headquarters in Germany. This prototype carried the name Audi R8 V10 BiTurbo and was rumored to pack crazy amounts of power underneath its capable hood. Fast forward to the present and that prototype seems to have developed into a full-fledged tuning package and is headed to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

MTM chose to use the 5.0L V10 engine used on their Audi RS6 Clubsport for this model as well, but the RS6’s 730hp rating still falls short of what MTM accomplished with the R8 BiTurbo. The R8 V10 BiTurbo is now capable of 777 hp and 888 NM of torque. Yep, 777 HP. With these updates, the MTM R8 will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, from 0 to 124 in 9.37 seconds, and will hit a top speed of 217 mph.

The engine wasn’t all that was changed though. To get that shiny, mirrored look on the sports car, MTM completely removed its paint and polished it up real nice which took over 700 working hours. An adjustable rear spoiler, a front lip, and MTM Bimoto 20 inch forged rims were also added, as well as some leather on the inside of the R8.

Now that MTM has dazzled everyone with their impressive work on the R8 V10 sports car, we think it’s time to let everyone know that, in order to get this finger-lickin’, suped up Audi, customers will have to dish out $550,000. Yeah, you can pick your jaws up off the floor now.

More details will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.

Audi revealed the A7 last year in December, and during its very short time, this is the first time we heard about a tuning proposition for it. To nobody’s surprise, we discovered that the first tuning firm to take a crack at the Audi A7 is no other than MTM.

And as this is the first tuning package for the A7, the changes aren’t as significant as you might have expect. Then again, an extra 40 HP on a diesel A7 is always something to take under consideration.

The only modifications MTM made to the exterior include a new set of Bimoto 9-spoke design alloy wheels and a new diffuser with a 4-tailpipe exhaust system. Significant changes were made under the hood for the 3.0-liter TDI quattro version. Thanks to the revision of the engine electronics, the engine receives an upgrade of 41 HP from 244 to 285 HP. The package is finished by a new set of special wheel spacers (20 or 30 mm round head per axle) and an electronic lowering module.

The Wettstetten/Ingolstadt tuner, MTM, has announced the official details on the RS6 Clubsport package announced a while ago. Thanks to some ECU modifications, the tuner was able to boost the horsepower to an astronomical level. That, in addition to an MTM stainless steel exhaust system, catalyst, and rear silencer (4-pipes, each one 80 mm with throttle valves in 2 pipes and control system), as well as other details and modified high-rev gearing, takes the 5.0 liter V10 engine to an astonishing 730 HP and 860 Nm of torque. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph in 11 seconds. The RS6 won’t stop until it hits 217 mph. This was an even bigger jump than we had previously anticipated with this tuning package!

Visually speaking, the Audi RS6 Clubsport seems to have been given access to an MTM height adjustable suspension kit. This kit will allow the driver to lower the vehicle by about 10-45". The tuning package also includes a carbon diffuser, a discreet carbon front spoiler lip, BIMOTO rims in 20” or 21”, and a roll-cage. The interior will be void of any rear seats, but will feature RECARO bucket seats and a 6-point safety harness.

Yes, the car kind of looks like a cross between a yellow and checker cab, but with the type of engine upgrades it has, anyone would be an idiot to not want to drive the hell out of it.

UPDATE 12/13/10: The 730 horsepower beast that is the MTM RS6 Clubsport was recently taken out for a test run by the boys of MTM at the Nardo race track. Their track exploits resulted in some pretty astonishing numbers as the modded RS6 exploded for a top speed of 225mph! All that speed – and power – on a luxury sedan? Consider us mighty impressed!

Press release after the jump.

After ABT and Senner Tuning wrapped their hands around the recently launched Audi A1 , German tuner, MTM , decided to have a go with it as well. And even if this first kit does nothing for the hatchback in terms of power, we are pretty confident that MTM will not leave it untouched.

So far MTM has only revealed a set of images for their package, but in these images you can easily see an exterior paint job similar to the one from the MTM Audi RS6 Clubsport , along with a series of subtle modifications. These modifications include a new set of 18" MTM bimoto rims with attractive 9-spoke race design in flawless finish, a new set of MTM-Spacers 20 mm per axle with wheel screws, upgraded brakes, and a lowered suspension.

The tuner has also promised that a series of modifications will be made under the hood ranging from an optimized reprogramming of the control electronics through to the complete conversion of the engine unit.

UPDATE 07/20/2011: It may be a year after this package has debuted, but MTM has finally upgraded the engine for the Audi Audi A1, and it’s a beaut! Every year, modified supercars head on over to the Nardo test track to see what they are capable of, but this year, MTM’s Audi A1 Audi A1 decided to crash the party and show the 9FF Porsche 911 Porsche 911 GT3, MKB McLaren SLR, G-Power BMW M3 BMW M3 , and SpeedArt Porsche Cayenne Turbo just how it’s done. With the new engine upgrade in the MTM tuning package, the A1 now delivers a total of 500 HP and 442 lb-ft of torque. 500 HP! When equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox and limited slip differential, the car will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of the aforementioned 201 mph.

UPDATE 12/27/11: MTM’s 500-horsepower Audi A1 is a bonafide hatchback rocket, but how is it going to fare when you line it up against a pair of iconic sports cars in the form of the Porsche 911 and the BMW BMW M3? Check out the video after the jump and find out why the MTM A1 is considered about as explosive as any tuning program we’ve seen in a while. In a word: wow.

German auto tuner MTM’s new tuned up Audi R8 , the V10 Bi-Turbo Prototype, made a cameo appearance in front of the company’s headquarters in Germany recently, giving us a look at the car that’s rumored to pack 888 horsepower underneath its hood. Yes, folks. 888 horsepower.

According to a spokesperson for the tuning house, the monstrous R8 has finally reached the conclusion of its developmental stage and is already in the first stages of being unleashed out on track. From what we’ve gathered, this car has performed extraordinarily well for MTM’s obscenely high standards. Should this car be as good as advertised, then you might be looking at one of the fastest, if not the fastest, Audi R8 on the planet.

The car is expected to make its debut to coincide with the tuning firm’s 20th birthday in November so we’ll be sure to keep you updated when MTM finally decides to pull the covers off of the Audi R8 V10 Bi-Turbo Prototype.
