MTM was able to push the factory performance numbers of 245 HP and 500 Nm of torque to 285 HP and 580 Nm of torque for the first option.

German car tuning company Senner has revealed a minor kit for the 3.0 TDI Audi A7 Sportback model. Under the hood, the 3.0-liter diesel engine has been boosted to 306 PS and 620 Nm of torque. These numbers are up from the factory 245 PS and 500 Nm of torque. Most of this power increase comes from an ECU tune and a new stainless steel exhaust system with 90 mm tips. Senner Tuning then jumped up the V-Max limiter on the Audi A7 Sportback to a top speed of 280 km/h. This allows the sport sedan a little more freedom on the German autobahns. Final modifications include a 30 mm drop for the air-suspension setup, and Varianza T1S rims measuring 20×9.5 and wrapped in 275/35R20 tires all around.
MTM decided to bring this Audi A1 to the annual Nardo Highspeed meet, producing 500 PS and 600 Nm of torque from the swapped 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine found in the Audi TT-RS.

The power from the new engine is transferred to the front wheels through a six-speed manual, allowing the A1 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds, and reach an amazing top speed of 324 km/h.

Additional aftermarket options that can be installed by O.TC Tuning consist of a new carbon fiber bonnet, grille accessories, and a new high performance brake kit.
A strange image of an Audi Q7 SUV truck conversion has been circling the web now and believed to come from an Audi fan blog. This diamond plated aluminum custom made truck bed is something you don’t see everyday, and begs the question if real or fake. Many pictures on the internet now are photoshopped, and the low quality of this image has us contemplating the legitimacy. It is definitely possible to do this, but why someone would spend all their time is the real question. Why not just buy pickup truck? Maybe they love Audi’s and wanted to make easy trips to the hardware store, or it could be that the rear end of the roof was damaged and the easiest solution was to chop the top. What do you think?
The car tuning company JMS has revealed a new unique styling kit for the Audi A4. It is for all models with or without the S-Line body kit and consists of several aerodynamic parts. First is the addition of a front lip spoiler, custom rear apron, and quad pipe high performance exhaust system. Then come the new 19-inch Barracude T6 wheels or 20-inch OZ Racing rims, which the customer gets to decide. Finally, the H&R suspension kit drops the Audi A4 up to 40 mm for improved handling and looks. As Audi is becoming more popular day by day, we see these Audi tuning kits appearing on the market faster than we can blink.
The fiery red Audi R8 is a stunning car, but having it in a convertible model is even better, and it features many improvements. For more than 50,000 Euros, this conversion improves the weight of the car, boosts output, optimizes the handling and safety systems, while giving it a look to die for. On the exterior level, the tuners installed a new front bumper and grill, front spoiler, carbon made ribs, cooling ducts, rear spoiler, apron, and rear diffuser with grille option on the Audi R8. Performance upgrades and numbers come next.
Typically the tuners at ABT focus on the VW projects, but this time they came to the Geneva Motor Show with a new 600 horsepower Audi R8 V10 Spyder. The German tuning firm pulled 620 hp to be exact, and the Audi R8 looks better than ever. It received a red paint job with black styling throughout, along with many carbon fiber parts. Some to name include the front skirt, rear skirt, windscreen cover, air scoops, and the engine bay finished with carbon. These aftermarket parts help reduce the weight of the Audi sports car, while the flagship vehicle received new wheels measuring either 19 or 20-inches. Performance specifications come next.
Here is the latest tuning job performed by MTM on the new Audi R8 V10 Biturbo. It will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show next week, and most likely blind all the camera’s with the chrome exterior. If you ever plan on wrapping your car in chrome, or painting it a bright color, you always need to remember that you will be drawing attention to traffic cops in your modified car. You better hope that your car is faster than the police cars, so that they won’t feel the need to chase you since you will be long gone by the time they start. This custom Audi R8 V10 produces 766 horsepower and 888 Nm of torque, with a predicted top speed of over 360 km/h once the tuning is completed. As it sits right now, the Audi R8 was able to reach 347.6 km/h, reported by the MotorVision.de website.
