Most aftermarket modifiers looking to reach headline top speeds crank up the horsepower as high as they can get it. With its rich background in high-speed testing, MTM knows all about that. But they decided to go a different route this time.
Instead of emphasizing overall engine output, they took an Audi TT RS – already one of the fastest vehicle in the Audi stable this side of an R8 – and tuned it to "only" 472 horsepower. And with it they hit a top speed of 312 kilometers per hour (194 mph), a speed previously thought unattainable with anything less than 500 horsepower.
The best part? They'll set yours up the same way. All it'll cost you is €14,500 for the engine mods and another €9,973 for the upgraded tires, wheels and brakes you'll need to keep it under control...plus a stock Audi TT RS to start off with. Oh, and if you really had your heart set on that 500-hp mark, they're working on that, too.
