What a 650 HP Audi S8 by MTM Is Like

For some strange but pleasing reason, Audi’s RS folks don’t like to pimp out their brand for the sake of extra sales. While BMW and Mercedes are going to make hot versions of every one of their cars, Audi only has a few: RS3, TT-RS, RS Q3, RS4 wagon, RS5 coupe and convertible, RS6 wagon and RS7. That’s it!

On desperately needed hot model perhaps is at the very top of the range, where the A8 sedan only goes up to a 500-and-a-bit horsepower S8 model. That 4-liter V8 is quite similar to the the 560 hp monster in the RS7, but German tuning firm MTM chose to do more… much more.

650 Hp and 800 Nm is what they found it could offer. 0 to 100? 4 seconds. Price? Just a smidgen really… €155,000.

The MTM S8 is a brand new car which made its debut a few days ago n Monaco, where they Worldsupercars got to ride shotgun. If you want to know what the Startship Enterpirse is like, look no further.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
