MTM T 500 4motion

Anyone familiar with MTM will know that the tuning company isn’t opposed to shoehorning larger engines into more unsuspecting vehicles, the A1 Nardo Edition a case in point. This time its attentions have turned to the relatively humble Volkswagen T5 4motion Bus, endowing it with a mammoth boost of horsepower.

As with the A1 project the lunatics at MTM have fitted an Audi 2.5 TFSI unit (usually found in the TT RS) into the T5’s engine bay. Tweaked to produce 352 kW (472 hp) and 625 Nm (461 lb/ft) of torque the T 500 not enjoys a 280 km/h (174 mph) top speed.

Helping to keep the Bus rubber side down, MTM fits a big brake upgrade with six-piston calipers, a KW Street Comfort coilover suspension kit and 20-inch Bimoto alloys wrapped in 275/35 ZR Michelin SuperSport tyres.

MTM supplies the T 500 as its own product, with the company’s name as the vehicle’s manufacturer, for € 160,000. And as with the Q3, the repugnant vinyl wrap is not compulsory.
