The Audi RS Q3 is already an extreme crossover, but the tuning companies believe something else. After we saw the ABT Audi RS Q3, it’s time to take a look at the tuning programme from MTM. For those who don’t know, the standard RS Q3 is powered by a 2.5-liter TFSI five-cylinder engine that generates 310 hp and 420 Nm of torque.
As a result, the RS Q3 is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.5 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h or 155 mph.
The German tuner decided that this isn’t enough and thanks to the M-Cantronic module (3,357 Euro) and a new exhaust system integrated in the carbon fiber rear air diffuser (4,699 euros), the total output of the engine was boosted to an impressive 410 hp and 570 Nm of torque.
With these numbers, the RS Q3 zooms from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds, while top speed is 270 km/h (167.7 mph). In addition, the front axle received drilled and internally ventilated 380 x 34 mm MTM brakes, while the rear axle keeps the standard braking system.
The brakes are hidden behind the 20-inch Bimoto wheels wrapped in high-performance Michelin tires. Finally, the adaptive MTM chassis package strikes the right balance between performance and comfort. If you like this vehicle, you’d better know that it has a price tag of 76,650 Euro, including VAT.
