The MTM RS6 Clubsport Will Have 760 HP, Heading to Geneva

German tuner MTM’s stand at Geneva will be densely populated this year, with cars making extreme levels of power. The guys already confirmed that they will be bringing their most hardcore version of the Audi S8 they have, the Talladega S, to the show and now we’re hearing that the RS6 Clubsport will be there too.

The upgraded version will be as powerful as it can get at the moment, with 760 HP coming out of the 4-liter twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet, instead of the stock 560 ponies. If you care to remember, that’s exactly the same amount the Talladega S8 used to have before getting the extra ’S’ in its name.

Of course, the torque level is insanely high as well, with no less than 945 Nm (697 lb-ft) of torque on tap, a mind boggling level compared to the stock 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). All of that is going to the asphalt via the quattro all-wheel drive system and the ZF 8-speed gearbox.

With such ludicrous amounts of power at its disposal, the zero to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint becomes negligible, the guys providing only the time this car takes to reach 300 km/h (186 mph) which is 31 seconds.

All of that was capable due to a new ECU tune, some turbochargers developed in-house by MTM and a new exhaust with stainless steel downpipes.

Other changes remain at the visual level, the car they put together wearing BiMoto rims and a mix of black, grey and orange colors that somehow work together. We’re not fans of the checkered flag motif, however.

Overall, the car lost 80 kilos (176 lbs) during the transformation process and some of it due to the new seats that are made of carbon fiber and look like they came straight from a sci-fi movie.
