German tuner MTM has a power kit for the Audi RS3 Sportback that dials up output by more than 130 horses over the series 340 PS (250 kW / 335 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

A total power rating of 472 PS (347 kW / 466 hp) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque is reached by means of a modified turbocharger and a new sport exhaust system which also provides the appropriate sound. MTM beefs up the braking system to match all that extra go too.

The RS3 by MTM is then good for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 4.1 seconds over the series' 4.6. MTM also adds 19-inch bimoto wheels and lifts the V-max to 292 km/h (181 mph).

MTM offers more modest bumps in output to 410 PS (302 kW) and 424 PS (312 kW) for the less adventurous.

Total cost of the top-end package is €10,600.
