* 2013 Audi S8 stock specs
MTM added a biturbo system to the standard S8 that gives it a total output of 650 horsepower at 5950 rpm. The engine upgrade allows it to achieve a maximum of 590 lb-ft of torque at 1700-5500 rpm.
The engineers at MTM upgraded the braking system to better suit the engine upgrade. They have also lowered the front bumper that improve the aerodynamics of the car along with a slightly improved road grip.
Its tweaked agility makes it easier to handle tight cornering and adapt to driving varied driving conditions.
The Audi S8 by MTM received a brand new front bumper and grille. MTM removed the stock grille and added a bigger version while the bottom sides received two chrome lines that cross the small air intakes.
The tail bumper has also been changed to fit four exhaust pipes to replace the two at each side while the sides were stamped with the MTM logo.
The upgrade kit for the S8 from MTM does not include any interior upgrades. This model features the standard dark grey interior with all leather seats, central panel with the LCD display and the chrome decorative elements on the doors and instruments.
The full upgrade kit used for the S8 includes the body kit, the engine and braking system. Even if the interior has not been touched, the 2013 MTM Audi S8 Biturbo looks like a completely different car from the outside and behaves differently when compared with the production model.
