The biggest, meanest Audi cat on their stand was definitely the Talladega S, a car based on the S8 that still uses the 4-liter TFSI V8 engine but with some serious changes done to it. To be more precise, instead of the 520 HP it used to make, the car now has 802 HP and no less than 945 Nm (697 lb-ft) of torque.

Those numbers allow the full-size sedan reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.1 seconds thanks in part to the quattro all-wheel drive system. From here on out, the car reaches 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds and goes up to a top speed of 350 km/h (218 mph).

Right next to it was a car with almost identical figures: the Clubsport RS6. This thing was based on the standard Audi RS6 Avant and uses the same 4-liter mill. Unlike the Talladega, however, this thing has ‘only’ 760 HP and 945 Nm (697 lb-ft) of torque. Let us remind you that the standard car is rated by the Ingolstadt-based company at 560 HP and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.

The ZF 8-speed gearbox and the quattro all-wheel drive system take the Clubsport MTM up to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 31 seconds. Impressive enough? Sure, the price tag might be a little prohibitive.

No worries then, we have yet another MTM creation for you, this time without a roof. The S3 Cabriolet came out with a lot less power compared to its bigger brothers. That doesn’t mean that it’s embarrassing to talk about though, after all, the engine is smaller as well.

Under the bonnet hides a 2-liter TFSI 4-cylinder mill making 300 HP and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque in standard guise. With the MTM kit on it, that’s taken up to 426 HP and 530 Nm (390 lb-ft) of torque which should be the world record for the most powerful 2-liter engine if this was a production car.

With an acceleration of 4.9 seconds to 100 km/h (62 mph) and a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h) what more could you want from a drop top?
