MTM upgrades Audi RS6 Avant Gets to 702hp
The Audi RS6 Avant is a power packed station wagon. It is hardly a candidate for further refinement in performance. But as they say there is still room for improvement. So Motoring Technik Mayer (MTM), an automobile tuning company based in Wettstetten, Germany, has released a package to derive more power, speed and style from this car.
Audi RS6 Avant-powerful Station Wagon
The Audi RS6 Avant is a powerful car in itself, belting out a power of 580 bhp. This enormous power comes from its 5 liter FSI twin-turbo V10 model engine. The result is a thundering acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph in just 4.6 seconds. This makes the Audi RS6 Avant the most powerful and nimble station wagon capable of giving even the Lamborghinis a run for their money.
Now, the MTM engineers have tinkered with its architecture to boost its performance statistics.
Choice of upgrade Packages
MTM offers a choice of packages to customers. These are at various levels of tweaking of the car, either in performance or style or both. So what are these packages?
At the entry level package the MTM engineers will massage the electronic engine control unit (ECU) chassis to boost the power output to 656 bhp at 6180 rpm. This gives 76 bhp more than the standard power. The outcome is a torque of 785 Nm-enough to pull a trailer piled with Californian Redwood logs! The car can accelerate at; hold your breath, 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.9 seconds! Now you can boldly park it next to a Ferrari! As an add-on the MTM engineers can electronically regulate the speed in increments of 279, 290 or 310 kmph. This frugal package comes at a price of 3999 Euros.
The advanced package promises more muscle and how? The exhaust system gets a stainless steel makeover with throttle control. Throw in a sports air filter and voila! The power shoots up to 702 bhp! This insane power package is available for just 9950 Euros.
MTM has made some cosmetic changes on the vehicle though these are minor. A front spoiler lip and a rear diffuser both made of carbon fiber are slapped on to make the car look sporty. The braking system is a six piston one, fitted at the front and featuring partially perforated brake disks and monoblock calipers.
The wheels are large, mounted on 21 inches MTM bimoto wheel rims and available in diamond or shiny finish. MTM also offers a 20 inches forged alloy wheel rims which it claims are lighter in weight. This light weight translates to better agility and braking of the station wagon on road.
MTM offers the entire suite which includes both the entry level and advanced packages for a price starting from 15500 Euros.
MTM comes up with a decent upgrade of an already powerful Audi car. The powered up engine (702 bhp and 785 Nm), reliable braking system, modified breathing, exhaust and suspension systems, and shining wheels make it a good buy. This sort of tuning can make this car pull like a truck or race like an F1.
