Audi A5 ‘Thunderbolt’ tuning by MTM |

The Audi A5 is definitely in my top 5 cars, because it’s simply an awesome car. And here’s a tuning program for the 3.0-litre V6 TDI version, developed by the German tuner MTM, dubbed ‘Thunderbolt’. The V6’s power output was increased from 240 hp to 300 hp and the MTM A5 sprints from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.9 seconds, while the top speed is 165 mph (265 km/h). The power increase comes from an optimized engine map, with the help of a 3D software, while handling is improved by using a perfectly tuned coilover suspension and 8-piston fixed calipers and 380×34mm semi-perforated brake discs.

MTM also created a body kit for the A5, featuring an S5 radiator grille, a rear lower bumper portion combines with 4-pipe rear muffler and 21 inch MTM “bimoto” wheels, that come in Shiny Silver, Titanium and Diamond Cut finishes.
