Tuning firm MTM has just revealed its most potently tuned Audi S8 yet with the introduction of the MTM S8 Talladega S. The car is an improved variant of the Talladega introduced late last year and features a number of mechanical and visual improvements and changes. The car will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2015.
For starters, MTM has managed to boost power from the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine to an impressive 791 hp and 697 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, the Audi S8 typically delivers 510 hp while the MTM S8 Talladega manages 750 hp and the same 697 lb-ft torque figure. When it is all said and done, the MTM S8 Talladega S will accelerate to 100 km/h in a quick 3.1 seconds, pass 200 km/h in just 9.9 seconds and complete the sprint to 300 km/h in 29 seconds. The Talladega S will then continue to accelerate right through to 350 km/h.
From a visual standpoint, the Talladega S can be differentiated from the Talladega with its new fixed rear wing which is certainly quite an eye-catching element. It is riding on the same 21-inch wheels sourced from Bimoto and includes subtle new visual elements the same as the Talladega like the fins in the front air intakes and the lowered suspension system.
For those not looking for as much power as the MTM S8 Talladega S, the tuning firm offers upgrades from 650 hp, 660 hp, 712 hp, 722 hp, 750 hp and the 791 hp Talladega S in question. Additionally, new exhaust systems can be ordered as well as a start/stop system for the engine.
The MTM S8 Talladega S kit adds about 98,000 euro on top of the standard price of an S8 in Germany.
