MTM Audi RS6 Ice cold, lightning fast – world record!

MTM Audi RS6 208mph Rekord
Motorists hate black ice like the devil hates holy water. No wonder, because when the going is icy, directional stability is all too often an unpredictable lottery.

With its Hakkapeliitta 8 studded tyre, Finnish tyre manufacturer Nokian, traditionally committed to this cold problem area, has provided impressive proof that it is possible to drive at blistering speed, under control and in a straight line even on an icy surface.

The Finn Janne Laitinen clocked 331.61 km/h on the thick ice sheet of the Gulf of Bothnia on 6 March 2011.

Armed with his speed record experience at Nardo – where the boss pushed his “RS 6 Nardo Edition” to a record of 362.5 km/h – Roland Mayer provided a new RS 6. Modified for a hot run in icy cold.

MTM presents the fastest R8 with 777 hp in Geneva

MTM from Wettstetten will be represented at the Autosalon in Geneva from the 3. – 13. March 2011 with two cars. In hall 5 MTM, car manufacturer and upgrading specialist, presents not only technical details and masterstrokes but also a visual highlight, which lets the exhibition hall shine in the truest sense of the word. The MTM R8 Biturbo with 777 hp / 571 kW and a top speed of more than 350 km/h was highly polished by MTM , this unique specimen with a worth of over 400.000 € was depainted completely in a special procedure and the aluminium chassis was polished in more than 700 working hours – all handmade . As well to see at the Autosalon: the MTM TT RS in the MTM design with 472 hp / 347 kW, which reached a top speed of 312 km/h at first test drives in Nardo.

MTM R8 V10 BiTurbo
The details of the highly polished MTM R8 V10 Biturbo, for which MTM also promises a registration for Germany: Performance upgrade to 777 hp, 888 Nm torque and a top speed beyond the 350 km/h. MTM also expects best acceleration values:

0 – 100 in 3,0 sec
0 – 200 in 9,37 sec
0 – 300 in 19,42 sec

The test drives on the highspeed track in Nardo in South Italy in September last year showed that the car can be moved in a sporty way also under extreme conditions, full load drives and extreme temperatures. MTM uses a coil over kit with adjustable suspensions, 20″ forged rims in the Bimoto design and MTM brakes 380 x 34 mm dimpled with 8-piston calipers at the front and rear axle.

The V10 Biturbo engine was already tested successfully in the RS6 with up to 740 hp / 544 kW and a top speed of 362,5 km/h in Nardo.

MTM Audi RS6 Clubsport with more than 730 hp

Dipl.-Ing Roland Mayer has loved cars since he was a young boy, Now he has passed puberty hes turned his tuning skills in to a frightening mix of fire and brimstone to the executive market, Not content with the RS6 ample 580hp offering he has removed the speed limiter and modified the Suspension Gearing and Brakes.

God help us when he decides to frankenbuild the manifolds and add to the allready substantial turbochargers.

This could be the first 1000PS offering from MTM.

• Target for 2010: top speed of 350 km/h
• 3.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, 11.0 seconds from 0 to 200 km/h
• A few optical touch-ups, but sportiness in the drivers’ position

Similarities with other vehicles, for example with the legendary Audi V8 DTM edition of the years 90 and 91 can not be excluded – that seems to be the message of the MTM RS6 Clubsport, which the Audi specialist and refiner MTM from Wettstetten/Ingolstadt is bringing out now. With a Power/Weight ratio of 2.65 Kg/PS, the sport interpretation of the RS6 stands far ahead of the former winner series’ car which brought with its four-wheel drive tears in the eyes of the adversary.

Company director Roland Mayer also seems to succeed in this, holding the record for station wagons (344,2 km/h) with the MTM RS6 R and presenting the RS6 R to the on board competition supercars mostly from back view in Nardo at the Highspeed event.
The aim is now, 350 km/h, where the MTM RS6 Clubsport has more power and less weight than the others. The result: more than 730 HP, around 860 Nm of torque and weight just under two tons. The 5. 0 TFSI V10 Biturbo with 6-speed triptonic with DSP, after its power increase in Wettstetten/Ingolstadt, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and 200 km/h will be reached just after 11 seconds.

The ingredients for the “MTM RS6 Clubsport” project are clear: less weight and much more power than the series‘ car. Besides the modification of the ECU, the engineers from MTM have demonstrated technical finesse to achieve more than 730 hp and 860 Nm of torque available at 2.750 U/min. In addition to that, a 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 have been built-in. About suspensions, the RS6 Clubsport gets a MTM height adjustable suspension kit that allows a 10 to 45 mm lowering. Concerning the wheel set, the BIMOTO rims in 20” or 21” are suggested with, for example, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Tyres in the size 305/30 ZR 21. The standard Carbon-Ceramic brakes, which Roland Mayer approves, are left on the car but stronger air brake system pipes can also be ordered on demand. Whoever wants to convert his RS6 into Clubsport is highly recommended for the MTM high power brake system with 405 x 36 mm disks and Brembo’s monobloc callipers with 6 pistons. Last but not least, MTM offers a changed front axle geometry, which, in addition to the above mentioned suspension kit, assures a much better behavior in curves.

Back to the legendary DTM V8 race car which stood out, 20 years ago, more for its driving sensations than its optic tuning. We find here also other similarities. Modification of the bodywork with a carbon diffuser and a discreet carbon front spoiler lip, which corresponds to the credo of MTM’s manager, Roland Mayer: we have to win, not with eye-catching spoilers, but with best times, best speed. When the driver’s door is open, we can see that sportiness inside as well as on the driver and co-driver seats, has replaced the comfort of the series’ car. Especially demonstrative: the ro ll-cage and no rear seats. On top of that, RECARO bucket seats and a 6-point safety harness, give the best driving position and best answer to our purpose: to concentrate on the driving. This is what the MTM RS6 Clubsport is all about.

Well this year it will be the same at car meetings on high speed tracks: Do not underestimate the Audi Limousine, which drives like a rocket. It was 344,2 km/h in 2009, the target for this year is 350 km/h.

MTM Golf GTI/GTD Performance Options.

The MTM tuning engineers have been working on some performance kits for the sixth generation Golf’s. 

The GTI 

Drivers of the sixth generation will be spoiled with MTM products, to increase the performance figures. 

Four complimented tuning stages, beginning with 270 hp (199 kW) through the remapping of the ECU using code developed on the Hockenheimring

In its latter stage of tune, MTM reaches more than 300 hp/ps through the modification of the ECU, MTM turbocharger with exhaust tubular manifold and complete 4 pipes exhaust system. 

The exact characteristics are 310 hp (228 kW) and a torque of 410 Nm, with a time of 1.16 min realized on the small track of Hockenheim, top speed of about 270 km/h and 5,7 seconds from 0 to 100. 

MTM provides the new GTI with 19″ sport rims in new BIMOTO 9-spoke-design which offer enough space for the MTM brake system with 380 mm discs. Last but not least, MTM advises the in-house suspension kit, which lowers the front about 30 mm. 

For the ones who are only searching ‘a little bit’ more, they are in good hands at MTM. The 60 hp upgrade compared to the series car and also the 18″ sport rims in the Bimoto Design – available since the beginning of 2010 – enable a first entry into MTM high quality tuning already available from 2800 euro incl. taxes. 


 

Mighty Diesel power. The Golf GTD by MTM. Also for all you Oil Burners MTM also have a power upgrade – through ECU modifications – of 205 hp (151 kW) and a torque of 380 Nm, the MTM Golf GTD is clearly ahead of the series GTD, with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h of 7,1 s instead of  7,8 s and a more direct torque curve. 

For those who are looking for more than a power upgrade, it’s also possible to revert to MTM’s full range of tuning products. Starting with the well-known MTM exhaust system in 4-pipe-optic and 80 mm diameter, over MTM suspensions, MTM sport rims in the BIMOTO design and MTM brake system, the Golf GTD can perfectly provided with. Nobody has to be afraid of the prices: 800 Euro (incl. taxes, excl. installation)  for the power upgrade, 1.499 Euro for the 18″ rim set and for the ones who pay an additional charge of 400 Euro even gets a 19″ rim set.
