MTM takes Audi RS3 beyond 500 hp

MTM is introducing an update for its Audi RS3 Sportback aftermarket package that brings even more power.

It was only several months ago when MTM worked on the RS3 and took the turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine from 367 horsepower (270 kilowatts) and 342 pound-feet (465 newton meters) to 435 hp (320 kW) and 447 lb-ft (605 Nm.) Now, the tuner is back with a stage 2 kit that pushes output to a massive 502 hp (370 kW) and 480 lb-ft (650 Nm.)

Once the new power kit is implemented, the Audi RS3 Sportback will need just 3.6 seconds to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) sprint and 13.1 seconds for the 0-124 mph (0-200 mph) task before topping out at 186 mph (300 kph.)

Beyond the power lift, additional upgrades include a performance suspension, stainless steel exhaust system with quad chrome tips, beefier brakes, and some carbon aero exterior body parts.

The Audi RS3 featured here rides on MTM’s 19-inch Nardo Edition wheels paired with Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubbers. Inside there are RS6-style seats with honeycomb pattern along with some tweaks to the dashboard, center console, and armrest.

Equipped with all the available goodies, the MTM Audi RS3 R costs $103,193 (€94,396.) The car right here will be displayed from Tuesday in Geneva where it will sit next to the tuner’s VW T6 E-Motion, Audi S8 Talladega R, and VW Amarok V8 Passion Desert Edition.
