It’s a classic car that everybody knows – Audi TT. It also looks very similar from the exterior. Yes it have some spoilers on both ends, decent side intakes, three exhaust tips, interesting openings for air in a rear window and smooth bottom of the chassis. But that’s all.
But after that...the driver turn the key in the ignition, two controller’s light glows – Engine 1 and Engine 2...what the hell?! Where? And after this starting process like in an airplane, shift first speed, release the clutch and the hell begins! 1000Nm of torque are available and you feel them during the acceleration over 200kmph. We don’t need to measure 0-100kmph sprint. No sense in this. Nothing interesting. But for example values such as 0-200kmph in 6.3 seconds and 0-300kmph in 19.8 seconds sound much better! Pass nearby formula in 340kmph and track in 370kmph seems like thin line.
Its suspension had to be heavily modified, but MTM don’t want to reveal details. Grip is provided by high-performance Pirelli tires on 19“ MTM rims. This power has to be controlled do the MTM guys installed complete and specially modified BREMBO brake system. The whole car passed few diets so its weight is no more than 1490kg. And this means that there’s one horse per 1,77 kilogram. What’s your ratio? The MTM’s Bimoto is powered by two 1.8 liter turbocharged engines, one in front and second in a trunk. Both stock turbines were replaced with bigger one KKK, 3Kwarner respectively. The turbines produce 1.8 bars of pressure, but MTM again doesn’t want to release closer info. But it’s clear that they increased their power for 100%.
If you see this car in your rearview mirror, drive away! No need for any distance lights, blinker or similar signals. But who will buy this? Nobody. It’s a unique machine, only one of its breed. „And it won’t be for sale. Never.“ These are words of Mr. Mayer, an owner of MTM. „We’ve just wanted an extreme machine and we’re successful with 840hp.“ And we can prove that they did a great job. Yes, it’s not for sale, but who would buy it when its estimated price is more than 500.000 euros?
Audi TT Bimoto:
The German tuning company MTM (Motoren-Technik-Mayer) was established in 1985 by Roland Mayer. The company started with modifications of Audi Quattro Sport. They had been working on this brand till 1990 and then they extended their portfolio with other brands like Seat, Škoda, VW or Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche. But the company likes to improve Audi’s engine to breath-taking limits. Of course all their products are certified and homologized in the European Union and meets demanding requirements of German TÜV (Technischer Überwachungs-Verein) and DEKRA (Deutscher Kraftfahrzeug-Überwachungsverein).
Today the company has its customers all over the world. Sometimes they build special show cars as this 5 years old Bimoto. MTM is a company of extremes and it’ll in the future too.
