By : Kevin | 29 May 2016 2:22 pm | Audi, Cars

2016 802HP Audi S8 Talladega R By MTM In the midst of all the anniversaries and celebrations automakers have lined up for this year, it’s easy to forget that one model is actually celebrating an anniversary of its own in 2016. Audi has yet to make a big fuss about it, so let me do the honors. The Audi S8 is turning 20 years old this year. Yes, it was first introduced in 1996 as Audi’s answer to the growing…

Audi S8 Talladega S by MTM

By : Kevin | 6 Mar 2015 12:17 pm | Audi, Cars

To be presented in a world premiere at next week’s Geneva Motor Show, the Talladega S is a super-fast tuned version of the existing Audi S8, which usually makes use of a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine good for 520 PS (510 hp). MTM’s work managed to improve upon that and squeeze 802 PS (791 hp) and 945 Nm (697 lb-ft out of the same engine. This means a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in 3.1 sec, 0 to…

Audi S3 Cabrio was unveiled at last year’s Geneva Motor Show, and now the high-performance convertible returns with some extra power. Thanks to MTM, it wil now benefit from 426 PS (313 kW) and 530 Nm (390 lb-ft) of torque coming out of a 2.0-liter TSFI four-cylinder engine equipped with a new turbocharger, a sports exhaust system and an MTM Engine Management Unit. These modifications enable the Audi S3 to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 5 seconds and…

Audi S8 Talladega by MTM

The Ingolstadt-based manufacturer is pretty content with its Audi S8; it has reasons to be. Audi has no plans for a future RS8 that we know of, but German tuner MTM has decided tnot to wait any longer and developed the S8 Talladega, which might as well be the RS8. In stock form, the S8’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine develops 520 PS (510 hp), but after MTM’s hardware and software mods, the eight-cylinder lump gains 240PS (237hp). I guess a…

Skoda Octavia vRS by MTM

The MTM garage has released a power package for the third generation Skoda Octavia vRS. The German tuner fiddled around under the bonnet, where the four-cylinder 2.0-liter TSI petrol engine was hiding. In its standard configuration, it will generate 220 HP (162 kW), but modifications have enabled it to develop 304 HP (224 kW). The Meteor Grey Octavia vRS now features an Apple Green matte stripe package from Autofolierung Zapp. If you’re excited already, get a load of this: the…

The summers is almost over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy a ride down the coastline in our sexy convertible. My choice for today is the new Audi S3, and the team at MTM agree with me. Audi specialist tuners Motoren Technik Mayer have picked the all-new 2014 Audi S3 Cabriolet for their latest project. Rolling out the factory gates in Hungary, the convertible develops 300 PS and 380 Nm of torque. The engine was mated to a…

Audi RS Q3 by MTM

By : Kevin | 15 Jul 2014 12:00 pm | Audi, Cars

The Audi Q3 isn’t what I’d call a super-car, it’s more like a premium version of the popular Volkswagen Tiguan which is why the company relied on 2-liter diesels for their sales. But with looks like that, it’s no surprise customers wanted this Audi to become a performance car, which is why the RS Q3 came out last year, the first SUV to ever wear the RS badge. German tuning garage MTM though it could improve upon Audi’s work, so…

I’m lovin’ the new Volkswagen Polo models! They look cool and drive like a dream; don’t even get me started on the Volkswagen Polo WRC Street. It’s asewome! But, MTM wasn’t as excited as I was about the car, so they’ve announced plans to introduce a new tuning program for the Volkswagen rally car at the Essen Motor Show. Oh, yeah! I’m quite intrigued as to what would the tuner modify and how; for the moment it’s looking virtually identical…

Audi RS6 Avant by MTM

By : Kevin | 14 Nov 2013 12:00 pm | Audi, Cars

One of my favorite family cars has been fiddled with again – to me, it’s a family car and I don’t want to hear anything about mini-vans and other grandpa stuff.  MTM is responsible for introducing a new tuning program for the Audi RS6 Avant. What I love about this Audi is that although we all know there’s a powerful beast hidden underneath, its tasteful and discrete design doesn’t reveal one glimpse of its beastly roots. It’s like Beauty and…
