The company is a member of the Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) and the Association of Automobile Tuners (VDAT). A cooperation between MTM and the racing car supplier Nitec Engineering resulted in the Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur in Altenburg.
MTM achieved notoriety for its high-speed testing. For its projects the company uses the “Bimoto”, which is an Audi TT equipped with two 1.8-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engines from Volkswagen. This configuration gives a power of 375 kW (510 hp) from each motor, with a maximum output of 750 kW. The power from the engines is transmitted via two six-speed transmissions to both axles. In 2003 during an Auto Motorund Sport test drive, the “Bimoto” was measured at a speed of 374 km/h, a new record for this publication.
In September 2009, during auto motor und sport tests, a modified MTM Audi RS6 reached a speed of 344.2 km/h. Thus the vehicle set the world record for the fastest wagon.
