The Wettstetten/Ingolstadt tuner, MTM, has announced the official details on the RS6 Clubsport package announced a while ago. Thanks to some ECU modifications, the tuner was able to boost the horsepower to an astronomical level. That, in addition to an MTM stainless steel exhaust system, catalyst, and rear silencer (4-pipes, each one 80 mm with throttle valves in 2 pipes and control system), as well as other details and modified high-rev gearing, takes the 5.0 liter V10 engine to an astonishing 730 HP and 860 Nm of torque. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph in 11 seconds. The RS6 won’t stop until it hits 217 mph. This was an even bigger jump than we had previously anticipated with this tuning package!
Visually speaking, the Audi RS6 Clubsport seems to have been given access to an MTM height adjustable suspension kit. This kit will allow the driver to lower the vehicle by about 10-45". The tuning package also includes a carbon diffuser, a discreet carbon front spoiler lip, BIMOTO rims in 20? or 21?, and a roll-cage. The interior will be void of any rear seats, but will feature RECARO bucket seats and a 6-point safety harness.
Yes, the car kind of looks like a cross between a yellow and checker cab, but with the type of engine upgrades it has, anyone would be an idiot to not want to drive the hell out of it.
UPDATE 12/13/10: The 730 horsepower beast that is the MTM RS6 Clubsport was recently taken out for a test run by the boys of MTM at the Nardo race track. Their track exploits resulted in some pretty astonishing numbers as the modded RS6 exploded for a top speed of 225mph! All that speed ? and power ? on a luxury sedan? Consider us mighty impressed!
