MTM Audi RS6 Clubsport

The MTM Audi RS6 Clubsport project was born out of the tuners intention of reducing weight and packing more power into the production sports sedan.

The results are quite impressive as the MTM Audi RS6 Clubsport with its 5.0-litre TFSI V10 Biturbo engine is now able to generate no less than 730 HP and 860 Nm of torque. This massive output enables the MTM Audi RS6 Clubsport to rocket from 0 to 100 Km/h in 3.6 seconds and from 0 to 200 Km/h in 11 seconds.

Besides a re-mapped ECU the MTM Audi RS6 Clubsport received a new 4-pipes stainless steel exhaust system, a height adjustable suspension kit, stronger air pipes for the braking system and changed front axle geometry for better handling at high speeds.

At the exterior as you can easily see the MTM Audi RS6 Clubsport has received DTM inspired body graphics, 20 inch or 21 inch black alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Tyres, a carbon fiber diffuser, a new front apron.

MTM press release :

Target for 2010: top speed of 350 km/h
3.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, 11.0 seconds from 0 to 200 km/h
A few optical touch-ups, but sportiness in the drivers’ position

Similarities with other vehicles, for example with the legendary Audi V8 DTM edition of the years 90 and 91 can not be excluded – that seems to be the message of the MTM RS6 Clubsport, which the Audi specialist

and refiner MTM from Wettstetten/Ingolstadt is bringing out now. With a Power/Weight ratio of 2.65 Kg/PS, the sport interpretation of the RS6 stands far ahead of the former winner series’ car which brought with its four-wheel drive tears in the eyes of the adversary.
Company director Roland Mayer also seems to succeed in this, holding the record for station wagons (344,2 km/h) with the MTM RS6 R and presenting the RS6 R to the on board competition supercars mostly from back view in Nardo at the Highspeed event. The aim is now, 350 km/h, where the MTM RS6 Clubsport has more power and less weight than the others.  The result: more than 730 HP, around 860 Nm of torque and weight just under two tons. The 5.0 TFSI V10 Biturbo with 6-speed triptonic with DSP, after its power increase in Wettstetten/Ingolstadt, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and 200 km/h will be reached just after 11 seconds.

The ingredients for the “MTM RS6 Clubsport” project are clear: less weight and much more power than the series‘ car. Besides the modification of the ECU, the engineers from MTM have demonstrated technical finesse to achieve more than 730 hp and 860 Nm of torque available at 2.750 U/min.  In addition to that, a MTM stainless steel exhaust system – catalyst and rear silencer (4-pipes, each one 80 mm with throttle valves in 2 pipes and control system), as well as other details and modified high-rev gearing have been built-in. About suspensions, the RS6 Clubsport gets a MTM height adjustable suspension kit that allows a 10 to 45 mm lowering. Concerning the wheel set, the BIMOTO rims in 20” or 21” are suggested with, for example, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Tyres in the size 305/30 ZR 21. The standard Carbon-Ceramic brakes, which Roland Mayer approves, are left on the car but stronger air brake system pipes can also be ordered on demand. Whoever wants to convert his RS6 into Clubsport is highly recommended for the MTM high power brake system with 405 x 36 mm disks and Brembo’s monobloc callipers with 6 pistons. Last but not least, MTM offers a changed front axle geometry, which, in addition to the above mentioned suspension kit, assures a much better behavior in curves.

Back to the legendary DTM V8 race car which stood out, 20 years ago, more for its driving sensations than its optic tuning. We find here also other similarities. Modification of the bodywork with a carbon diffuser and a discreet carbon front spoiler lip, which corresponds to the credo of MTM’s manager, Roland Mayer: we have to win, not with eye-catching spoilers, but with best times, best speed. When the driver’s door is open, we can see that sportiness inside as well as on the
driver and co-driver seats, has replaced the comfort of the series’ car. Especially demonstrative: the roll-cage and no rear seats. On top of that, RECARO bucket seats and a 6-point safety harness,  give the best driving position and best answer to our purpose: to concentrate on the driving. This is what the MTM RS6 Clubsport is all about.

Well this year it will be the same at car meetings on high speed tracks: Do not underestimate the Audi Limousine, which drives like a rocket. It was 344,2 km/h in 2009, the target for this year is 350 km/h.

Another similarity? It was almost exactly 20 years ago, that the Audi V8 DTM achieved a lot of success. And it is exactly 20 years ago that Roland Mayer decided to found his company MTM - Motoren Technik Mayer.
