The engineers at MTM are self-crazed Audi fanatics. Even though they tune other lines of automobiles including VW, Seat, Skoda, Bentley, Lamborghini, KTM, Spyker and Porsche, their roots date back to the early days of Audi quattro technology. The founder of the company was actually an engineer on the team developing the famed Audi five-cylinder in-line engine and in 1990 he founded MTM which stands for Motoren Technik Mayer.
While they’re not the most popular brand in North America for Audi tuning, compared to say, APR, there’s no denying their tuning prowess and success with their products. Their newest release is the MTM RS6 Clubsport which develops a whopping 730-hp and close to 580 ft-lbs of torque out of the 5.0L V10 Biturbo engine. This is quite the impressive upgrade from the factory 580-hp and 480 ft-lbs.
With these performance figures, the Audi RS6 now blasts the quarter mile at 12.6 @ 124 mph while hitting 0-60 in a mere 4.1 seconds. This is all achieved thanks to an ECU upgrade, air filter and exhaust system. Chances are the bulk of the power is made through the ECU, increasing the boost and ensuring the fuel curve keeps the motor nice and fed. Don’t look past the simple bolt-ons though; a properly tuned intake and exhaust on a V10 really frees up breathing space.
MTM also offers plenty of aesthetic upgrades on the RS6 with a set of 21-inch MTM Bimoto wheels for rollers, a carbon fiber diffuser for the rear and matching carbon fiber front lip spoiler. Suspension-wise, the RS6 can be lowered with a set of MTM individually adjustable springs.
All this power means more safety and with all MTM Clubsport models, this is a track-ready machine with a roll cage, six-point harness and carbon Recaro Pole Position seats.
Sadly the RS6 isn’t offered on this side of the Atlantic, so we’ll have to wait and see what MTM has in store for the S6, supercharged S4 and naturally aspirated S5.
