If this rather magnificent ABT Audi A8 is not really your cup of tea and you want something, well, stronger, look no further. MTM Audi S8 Talladega is what you want; a handsome, mean and aggressive sports saloon with tons of power and a huge turn of speed.

If we cut right to the chase, this limited edition tuner car offers 760 horsepower and 945 Nm of torque, which is a huge increase over the standard car, already pretty potent at 520 hp and 650 Nm.

To achieve that frankly staggering power, MTM engineers have fitted the V8 engine in the S8 with M-Cantronic and V-Cantronic kits including turbocharger, MTM 4-pipe stainless steel exhaust system with flaps in 2 pipes. Being a professional tuner, MTM has also upgraded the chassis with F-Cantronic II suspension and 21-inch wheels, and powerful ceramic brake. They top it all off with an aero kit designed to both look good and increase the downforce.

With that kind of power and sophistication, MTM Audi S8 Talladega can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and reach 325 km/h flat out. As for why it’s called Talladega, it’s an homage to the Audi 5000 CS Turbo that reached 350 km/h on the Talladega Speedway in Alabama in 1986.

All this goodness is, of course, not cheap. The standard S8 costs 115,000 Euro. The MTM Audi S8 Talladega, limited to 25 units, is 189,708 Euro!
