MTM builds up Audi TTS

Audi TTS fq

Audi’s TT platform has had a big career, looking fresh but still very familiar from its original debut in 1999. Now it’s showing even more potential remains with the upgraded TTS and TT-RS models. But even that’s not enough for the aftermarket, and MTM has responded with a 283kW go-faster model based on the TTS.

The core of the MTM TTS is a heavily upgraded 2.0 TFSI four-banger with quattro AWD. With turbo boost increased to 22.5psi the engine is working overtime to crank out its 283kW max power rating. Torque is running at 494Nm. The new variant gets its extra power from an upgraded MTM exhaust manifold, new turbocharger and air inlet upgrades.

Another version with a slightly less high-strung tune gets 246kW out of the forced-induction four-pot. That’s just 7kW short of the TT-RS’s turbo 2.5L five-cylinder.

Both cars get quattro AWD and S tronic direct-shift gearboxes, upgraded 8-piston 380x34mm Brembo brakes, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires in 245/30 size. Other extras include upgraded MTM 20x9in wheels, lowering springs, and a body-colored rear spoiler.

If you want the extra go you will need some extra cash because MTM upgrades have never come cheap.
