MTM Audi S3 for sale in Michigan!

Auto Europe in Birmingham, Michigan (a few miles from where i grew up!) has a 2009 Audi S3 MTM for sale at the moment with less than 5,000 miles.  I have inquired about the car and it comes with a full factory warranty (or remainder of), and is priced at $49,000.

After IEDEI brought you an exclusive article about Horschaus/MTM bringing european RS models into the US, it seems that this one is a US-spec Audi A3 2.0T Quattro which has been officially been converted from Germany to S3-spec.  MTM offers such an S3 conversion, which upgrades everything from suspension to wheels (MTM Bimoto wheels! sweet) to exhaust and even down to the S3 trim (door sills, badges, etc.).

What you end up with is a 270+ hp equivelant to a euro spec Audi S3.  Not bad at all!  $49k isn’t a bad price either, considering that IF the S3 did ever make it to the US officially, it would likely start in the mid-$40k range anyway.

The only issues i find with this car is (A) DSG instead of a manual, and (B) those absurd decals on the car (which i’m sure can be removed).  Otherwise, quite a car….and I have minimal experience with DSG, so maybe I can learn to love it as others have.

Check out the photos below, and if you’re interested go to the Auto Europe website linked at the bottom of the post for lots more photos and some specs:

from Auto Europe’s website:

The vehicle was bought via the Audi European Delivery Program and picked up from the factory in Ingolstadt and sent to the nearby MTM facility.  The conversion work was completed and the vehicle was shipped to America.  This particular vehicle has been featured in several magazines and is a very rare vehicle.

MTM BiMoto Audi TT (new video)

The ‘yellow’ BiMoto Audi TT was a fierce force to be reckon with—-fast as f*ck, but with sloppy handling abilities. They say that since repainting the BiMoto TT to the new livery of green, silver, and pink (?)—they’ve also sorted out some suspension issues, made the car even faster, and have played with the aerodynamics to make it even faster. I have not been able to sort out whether they are STILL using 2-1.8T engines, or whether they have switched over to using 2-2.0T engines now—so if anyone does know, please do enlighten us!

In this video, Tim Schrick (German touring car driver) tests the Version II of the MTM BiMoto TT. Sure it looks crazy…but that can only be an advantage with this monster.

Sorry the video is in german, but you don’t need language to watch the car or to hear it! I love it when he turns on each engine separately. Heavenly!
