And because MTM always likes to offer that little extra, the manufacturer from Wettstetten – near to Ingolstadt - is now offering a version setting entirely new standards, with 410 hp under the bonnet and 570 Nm of torque: 0 to 100 km/h takes 4.3 seconds and the uprated Q3’s top speed is just shy of 270 km/h. This comes courtesy of a modified engine management system - the M-Cantronic for the RS Q3 2.5 TFSI quattro, developed, built and installed at MTM, which comes with a 3,357 Euro price tag. And the magic that the M-Cantronic performs at the front end is optimised by an exhaust system specially tuned to the five-cylinder engine. Including the carbon fibre rear diffuser, the exhaust system will cost 4,699 Euro.
