MTM Tunes the TT-RS
A few months ago we got a look at the Sportec TT-RS, a tuned version of Audi’s high performance sports coupe tuned to 400 horsepower by only modifying the car’s ECU.
This time, German tuners MTM get their hands on a TT-RS and make it even better. By taking the 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine and tweaking the ECU and adding their own high performance exhaust, MTM was able to squeeze out 424 hp – 84 more horsepower than the stock TT-RS. The power enhancements allow the MTM TT-RS to travel from 0 to 62 mph in only 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 181 mph.
The MTM TT-RS package comes in three varieties, the above-mentioned 424 hp version being the most powerful – and most expensive – running you about $12,900. If you don’t have that kind of cash lying around, you have the option of the 404 or 408 hp versions as well, which will cost about $2,800 and $7,000, respectively. Optional 19- or 20-inch BIMOTO wheels are also available.
