It all started in 1985 with the first Quattro, unleashing a fascination for vehicles that has remained with us ever since. It's no surprise, after all, as a young engineer in the mid 80s I was involved in the development of the now legendary five-cylinder in-line Audi Quattro engine. In 1990 I established the company mtm, today our product range covers models form Audi, Seat, Skoda, VW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and Bentley.
Back then no one could envision the company's potential, but we possessed a unique devotion and enthusiasm. In 1992 we further developed the Audi five-cylinder in-line Quattro engine, with the mtm-upgrades it achieved well over 400 HP and was the first street licensed Audi worldwide, to brake the 300 km/h sound barrier. We are still as passionate in tending to this and other classic models today as we were back then.
Some highlights from our company are projects like the Aztec designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Apollo and the development of the supercharger for the Spyker and the Venturi GT3. It's this know how that we have applied to the V8 - supercharger for street use. The latest example of our passion is our ongoing mtm-bimoto-project, a 2 engine vehicle based on the Audi TT. This extraordinary vehicle which confirmed a speed of 374 km/h in "auto motor und sport" magazine's test on the Italian Nardo in 2003, marking it the fastest ever street licensed vehicle tested by this highly reputable technical magazine. In July 2007 the now more than 1000bhp strong mtm TT bimoto driven by Florian Gruber hit a new top speed of 393km/h setting a new official record for the top speed on the test track in Papenburg.
We share a passion and bonding with you as customer and don't build cars to satisfy our personal vanity, instead we offer sensible, discreetly packaged individualised reconstructions. We not only promise you more performance and torque, but a completely personalised vehicle concept.
All our developments are carried out in-house or at our affiliated development company Wetec Engineering. By the series transformation we apply products from original equipment manufacturers, exclusive suppliers and our partners Michelin, Continental, KW and Performance Friction, in order to guaranty maximum driving fun, safety and stability irrespective of if we reprogramme the engine management system for an Audi A3 or performed a complete reconstruction of an Audi RS6.
All our vehicles and developments are meticulously tested at our mtm-test centre and mtm vehicles are frequently pushed to extremes by race motor sport masters like Walter Rohrl, Armin Schwarz or Florian Gruber on the North Curve at the Hockenheimring as well as at the High Speed Oval in Nardo. We are particularly proud of our two fully air refrigerated rolling roads.
Company history and other general information about Milltek Sport
Over 20 years of continuous exhaust development and technical expertise are drawn upon to develop the ultimate Milltek Sport range of performance products.
Milltek Sport offer an ever expanding comprehensive selection of Performance exhausts which build on the successes of key marques like Audi, Volkswagen, Porsche, Mini and BMW. This has placed Milltek Sport at the forefront of tuning companies and owners 'must have' list. Milltek Sport have appointed key distributors and are currently exporting to over 40 countries around the world.
Milltek sports exhausts are produced in high quality type 304 aircraft grade stainless steel. This material is anti-magnetic (other manufacturers stainless steel may not be) and is less susceptible to discolouration. This quality of stainless steel is used on all pipework and the total construction of the silencer. Mandrel bending ensures full flow bends for better gas flow and Milltek systems are increased in bore to ensure ultimate performance without the loss of mid range torque.
The German based MOV'IT® GmbH, a 100% subsidiary of MOV'IT® International being located in Luxembourg, develops, manufactures and sells globally high-performance brake systems for sports, racing and security vehicles, as well as for the manufacturers of supersport cars. For more than 15 years MOV'IT® high performance braking systems have been a synonym for innovative braking technology.
In 1995, the braking system developed by Guido Frensemeyer only for the Corvette C4 was indroduced to the market for a wide range of car makes and models. This was the first time a braking system was available as a tuning component. High grade aircraft materials, cutting edge technology and a strong focus on function-oriented design and ultra precise craftsmanship soon made MOV'IT® braking systems one of the most important components for every sports car on or off the race track.
In 2007 the MOV'IT-CER™ GEN.1, a novel carbon-silicon-carbide brake disc, was integrated in a complete braking system and brought to serial production standard. The MOV'IT-CER™ GEN.1 offered greatly reduced weight and a significantly enhanced lifetime. The GEN.1 started the famous MOV'IT®-line of ceramic braking systems. Meanwhile, the third generation (GEN.3) of this high-tech braking system offers a 70% higher performance than any other available ceramic braking system.
In addition to Sport, Tuning and Security, "Special-OE" represents a further important part of MOV'IT®'s competence. The main focus here is the development of specific solutions for car manufacturers in a wide variety of market segments.
