The Germans started out with a 2.0 BiTDI version and tuned the engine from 204 to 240 PS. As if that weren't enough, they also installed a couple of electric hub motors at the rear axle. Each produces 15 kW, adding up to a total output of, wait for it, 282 PS.
If you like engineering overkill, check out the custom aluminum frame and reduction gears that MTM had to fabricate for this project. Considering that 1100 Nm of torque are now available, we'd say it was totally worth it.
While the T6 will rival a Brabus Rocket in the torque department, it won't keep up with it in a straight line. 0 to 100 km/h takes 8.2 seconds, and the top speed is over 200 km/h according to MTM. Still, that's way better than the standard model.
The tuner insists that the standard brakes are more than adequate at coping with the extra performance on offer. However, they changed the standard round things for 275/35 ZR 20 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires mounted on Bimoto 9 x 20 rims to give a muscular appearance and "surprisingly agile handling."
The T6 E-Motion will be joined in Geneva by an RS3 hyper hatchback with 500 horsepower and MTM's European take on the SVT Raptor, which combines an Amarok pickup with the V8 TDI engine of a Touareg.
