MTM Audi RS3 R
Agile handling is also shared with the second member of the Audi MTM family at the Geneva Motor Show, namely the RS3 R, that uses a 2.5 litre five-cylinder TFSi unit to produce 502 hp (370 kW) at 6,600 rpm.
The considerable 650 Nm of torque available between 2,250 and 5,750 rpm is sufficient to propel this compact powerhouse very rapidly towards the horizon and the 7-speed S-Tronic transmission guarantees that a responsive gear is always engaged. Thus equipped, the RS3 R will reach 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 200 km/h a mere 10 seconds later and max out at 300 km/h.
Under the bonnet there is a new MTM Turbocharger with downpipe and a performance intercooler. There is also a new exhaust system cat back stainless steel with middle and rear silencer incl. throttle valve.
Modifications hidden under the bonnet are matched by many eye-catching changes elsewhere. The MTM Individual interior makeover comprises of sporty and elegant plain leather with red stitching complemented by honeycomb-pattern quilting on the seat and backrest areas.
At the front of the vehicle a carbon spoiler integrates with the diffuser to improve aerodynamics and imparts catwalk glamour on the show stand. Out on the asphalt the outward and inner changes build a picture of “sporty, super, supreme”.
The RS3 R is equipped with the MTM Nardo Edition 8,5 x 19 and 9,5 x 19’’ wheels and the tyre size is 235/35 ZR19 and265/30 ZR 19 Michelin Pilot Super Sport.
The MTM offerings (Audi S8 Talladega R) for breath-taking forward thrust are exhibited on stand 2045 in Hall 2, with a press gathering scheduled for 13:15 on the 1st March.
