* Outstanding performance data
The new Audi RS6 innately impresses discerning customers thanks to its high-powered twin turbo V10 engine wîth 5.0 l displacement. Only a short while after the car's market launch, MTM, the Audi specialist from Wettstetten near Ingolstadt, Germany, already has performance kits in its program, which boost the performance of this super-fast station wagon.
For instance, the MTM engineers boost the engine power electronically to 656 bhp at 6,180 rpm. If need be, the MTM-RS6 R will run upon request (MTM regulates the increments electronically) at speeds of either 279, 290 or 310 km/h. The outstanding torque of now 785 Nm (production version 650 Nm) allows it to accelerate like lightning from zero to 100 km/h in an impressive 3.9 seconds. Price: € 3999.
An advanced version of the MTM performance kit is in preparation, which, wîth a massive 702 bhp, even outshines the performance data of most super sports cars. This additional boost in performance is made possible thanks to a stainless steel exhaust system wîth throttle control downstream from the catalytic converter and a sports air filter. The 702 bhp kit (plus MTM guarantee) is available for € 9950.
This super-fast behemoth is stopped wîth the aid of the six-piston braking system MTM fits at the front that features grooved (=not perforated all the way through) brake disks in the dimension 405x36 mm and monoblock brake calipers.
|Engine : 5.0 L., 10-cylinder|
Power: 702 hp
Torque: 579 ft-lbs
The exclusive sports suite from MTM for the Audi RS6 is rounded off by the large 21' MTM bimoto wheel rims in 10.5 x 21', which are available in the finishes 'shiny' or 'diamond-cut', and which MTM also offers in conjunction wîth size 285/30ZR21 tires. As an alternative, MTM offers its bimoto wheel rim also as the new, forged 20 inch version. Fitting forged alloy wheels, which are lighter in weight compared wîth cast alloy wheels, enhances both the agility and braking performance of this powerful station wagon.
MTM offers this combination of a power-boosted engine, modified breathing, exhaust system, suspension struts and 21' wheels for a package price starting from € 15,500.
