MTM Audi RTT: R8-beating, Bauhaus lunacy

One of the scribes contracted by World Car Fans just wrapped up some seat time in the supercharged MTM Audi RTT, and says, despite the love-fest going on over the Audi R8, its MTM-massaged baby brother can give it more than a run for its money.

Focusing more on outright speed than competent handling, our tuner tour guide provides us a straight-forward account of the RTT's accelerative qualities, citing a 0-62 MPH time of 4.1 seconds, a half-second less than Audi's high-dollar mid-engine masterpiece. Beyond the blower, which brings output up to 415 HP and 368 lb.-ft. of torque, the RTT also benefits from an R8-inspired body kit (€2000), although surprisingly, MTM has left the stock suspension in its place – something they'll rectify with the right amount of cash.

With an entry fee of just under €73,000, it certainly isn't for the faint of heart. But then again, neither is its performance.
