Including a 800-HP Audi S8.
Audi aftermarket specialist MTM has revealed what it has in store for the Geneva Motor Show next week, introducing a trio of four ring favorites that have each received extensive modifications. Topping the bill is the MTM S8 Talladega S, named after the legendary Audi 200 that clocked almost 220 mph at the Talladega Superspeedway, Alabama, in 1986. While that car had 650 hp, the latest variant manages the same top speed albeit with a 802-hp powerplant.
It also boasts a luxurious, sporty interior clad in hand-crafted leather and carbon-fiber trim. Next up is the RS6 Clubsport. Lightened by 80 kg, the Avant’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 has been modified to generate 760 hp and 697 lb-ft of torque, sent to all four wheels via Quattro AWD system and an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission. 0-62 mph will come in at just over three seconds. Rounding up the trio of Audis is the S3 Cabrio. With a remapped ECU, new turbocharger and exhaust system, the droptop boasts 426 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque from its revised 2.0-liter TSFI four-pot, and can sprint to 62 mph in less than five seconds. Styling upgrades appear to be limited to new wheels, and lots of carbon-fiber add-ons and interior trim.
