* Vmax up to 264 km/h, acceleration 0-100 in 5,1s
* stainless steel exhaust system with metallic catalytic converter,
* double-flow resonator
* variety of brake systems for the best deceleration
* sport springs or coilover suspension
Motoren Technik Mayer GmbH from Wettstetten, Germany, laid their
hands on the new referee within the sport compact car arena. The
Audi S3 creates great competition within its own corporation to Golf
GTI and R32 as well the bavarian colleagues BMW with the mighty
130i. Through the mtm-provided components for motor, breaks, exhaust
system and suspension, they have distanced themselves even more from
their competitors raising the S3 to an uncompromising racer!
Better performance and higher torque
The TFSI-motor borrowed from parent company VW, is really ideal for
tuning revisions. Directly off the assembly line, the turbo engine
of Audi S3 already has an impressive 265 HP. One would imagine this
alone is enough. Yet, just experiencing the difference proves a
visit to mtm is really worth while. In its first stage, mtm replaces
the motor electronics. This procedure alone upgrades power to 310
HP/228 kW as well as torque to 400 Nm (Series: 350 Nm). Whoever
selects a mtm resonator and the mtm rear silencer receives an
additional 5 HP and 5 Nm. The hottest version receives even more
components from mtm to boot. With the mtm front silencer and a front
pipe with metallic catalysatic converter, performance increases to a
powerful 330 HP and torque of 420 Nm. With this addition, in just
5,1 seconds 0 to 100 km/h is reached and a maximum speed up to 264
Naturally, mtm ensures durability for all its parts. Customers
benefit from the extensive experience mtm has gathered for example
from the TT bimoto.
As can be expected, all parts described above for the exhaust system
are available seperately for the Audi S3 2.0 TFSI. Either the rear
silencer with exhaust flap control alone or together with the
complete catalytic converter system. Both tail pipes, each with a
diameter of 80 mm, look far more impressive than the series-produced
parts. From each excapes a sound that one generally only experiences
on the race track.
"Races are won on brakes"
Implimenting power upgrades alone, with complete disregard for
adequate deceleration, would be operating completely irresponsibly.
For this reason, mtm offers cars of all classes specifically
designed brake systems.
In the case of the S3, mtm improves deceleration on the front axle
in three upgrades. For the first upgrade, mtm provides the S3 with
8-piston-fixed calipers and 330x32 mm diameter sized semi-perforated
brake discs. Even more impressive is the next higher upgrade of
completely perforated brake discs with diameter dimension of
356x34mm. They must sustain pressure from 8-piston-brake calipers.
Last mentioned, mtm also uses within the largest of the three brake
systems. Here the semi-perforated brake discs measure 380x34 mm in
diameter and when they are gripped by the calipers, the driver has
the feeling of grabbing an anchor. The saying "races are won on
brakes" is not to be taken lightly. The racetrack beckons! Every
package contains both the steel flex brake lines as well as
additional parts. The semi-perforated brake discs are, by the way, a
custom-made product from mtm. A unique element for the these discs
is the semi-perforations as they do not go through the disc
completely. They show optics and characteristics of a completely
perforated-through disc, but avoid the normally found crack
formations followed by extended use.
Clearly, the standard equipped S3 is an outstanding vehicle.
However, those who prefer no comprimises will choose from the mtm
price-list a coilover suspension which provides lowering the S3
between 35 and 65mm. Its set-up can be regulated by adjustment of
the compression and rebound of the damper. Alternatively, mtm offers
shorter sport springs that lower the S3 by 45 mm. For better road
holding ability, mtm furnishes spacers for track widening of 20 mm
In regards to wheels, mtm comes up with its own creation "bimoto".
These spectacular features come in finishes of "shiny silver",
"titanium" and "diamond cut". mtm offers the "bimoto"-wheels for the
S3 in the size 8,5x19" ET50. Additionally available is a wheel set
with tyres in the dimensions 235/35ZR19.
The general rule at mtm is "special wishes will be granted".
Modifications can be made on an individual basis!
