Every year a select group of modified supercars gather at the Nardo Highspeed Test Track to reach their ultimate top speed. This year the participants included a 9ff Porsche 911 GT3, MKB McLaren SLR, G-Power BMW M3, SpeedArt Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the MTM Audi A1. The Audi A1 looks a bit odd in this lineup, but Audi tuning specialist MTM turned it into a pocket rocket with 500hp and 600Nm of torque.
The MTM Audi A1 recorded a record speed of 324km/h, just over the magic 200 miles per hour. It did that with a turbocharged FWD Audi A1 with a six-speed manual gearbox and limited slip differential. For improved aerodynamics the Audi A1 has 19 inch wheels with wheel covers. The acceleration has been improved to 4.5 seconds from 0-100km/h.
i dont get it, is this saying that the a1 is faster then a MKB McLaren SLR???
Nope, it set a record for the Audi A1. 9FF took home the victory of this Nardo Highspeed Test with a topspeed close to 400 km/h
why would anyone want to go that fast in a matchbox?
and i bet with that money it costs you could get atleast an M5.
so this car is just pointless.
The most important point of this car is missing in this article:
MTM swapped the engine to the 2.5l 5cy from the TT-RS!
