The core of the MTM TTS is a heavily upgraded 2.0 TFSI four-banger with quattro AWD. With max boost pressure of 22.5psi (1.55bar) the engine is definitely working hard to crank out its 380hp (283kW) max power rating. Torque is typically turbo-tastic at 364lb-ft (494Nm). The 380hp variant gets its extra power from an upgraded MTM exhaust manifold, new turbocharger and air inlet upgrades.
Another version with a slightly less high-strung tune - though it still runs the same max boost pressure - wrings 330hp (246kW) out of the forced-induction four-pot. That's just 10hp (7kW) short of the TT-RS's turbo 2.5L five-cylinder.
Both cars get quattro AWD and S tronic direct-shift gearboxes, upgraded 8-piston 380x34mm Brembo brakes, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires in 245/30 size. Other extras include upgraded MTM 20x9in wheels, lowering springs, and a body-colored rear spoiler.
If you want the extra go, you'll have to have money to blow, because the 330hp version starts at €63,103 ($83,472) including tax and installation fees, while the bigger brother runs €73,715 ($97,510).
