Motoren Technik Mayer (MTM) has taken the wraps off their new upgrade program tailored to the Audi RS3 Sportback mega hatch.
If it’s one thing the RS3 isn’t lacking, that’s certainly power. However, that hasn’t stopped MTM from taking the turbocharged 5-cylinder 2.5-liter turbo from 367 hp and 465 Nm to 435 hp and 605 Nm. As a result of the added punch, the high-performance hatchback will now hit 100 km/h from a standstill in just 3.9 seconds before topping out at more than 300 km/h. These are some serious improvements over the standard car which does the sprint in 4.3 seconds and will hit 280 km/h.
There’s more to this tuning job than just a power hike as MTM also installed its own 19-inch Nardo alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Other upgrades available include a performance suspension, stainless steel exhaust, beefier brakes, and several carbon fiber body add-ons. The interior can get optional carbon seats and a leather-covered steering wheel adorned with a carbon fiber trim.
If this sounds good, the Audi RS3 Sportback by MTM costs €75,044 with all the upgrades. As if 435 hp wasn’t already more than enough, the German tuner has announced a 500 hp kit is on the agenda.
