Audi RS Q3 by MTM

Probably the most spread vehicles around the world are the German cars. Everywhere we go we bump into Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes, Opel or Audi vehicles. So it’s no wonder that the tuning field has these brands as main characters. The market is invaded by tuning programs for these vehicles. Yet, new ones still appear and it seems that tuners never get tired of creating something new for them. It is also the case of MTM, a tuning company which has just came up with a new tuning program for the Audi RS Q3.

The specialists from Motoren-Technik-Mayer GmbH have just revealed their new power kit for the Audi RS Q3. But before we get to see their result, let’s remember a few things about the stock version of this vehicle.  The standard RS Q3 is powered by a 2.5-liter TFSI turbocharged 5-cylinder engine develops 310 hp. Thanks to MTM's new upgrade, the Audi RS Q3 is now able to produce 410 hp and 570 Nm of torque. The extra power is reflected into a zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration time of 4.3 seconds. The maximum speed of MTM's RS Q3 is 270 km/h.

MTM’s tuning program for the Audi RS Q3 includes a reprogrammed ECU called an M-Cantronic and a high-performance exhaust system. There's also a carbon fiber rear diffuser available. MTM's entire power kit for the RS Q3 is priced at 3,357 Euro. The bespoke exhaust, including the diffuser costs 4,699 EUR. It is the client’s option to choose other elements provided by the tuner, such as 380x34 mm drilled and internally brake discs, 20-inch Bimoto light alloy wheels, and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. MTM's version of the Audi RS Q3 is priced at 76,650 Euro, including VAT. This means 22,050 EUR more than the standard version of the crossover.
