Urban RS Turbo: the 5-cylinder turbo-AWD beast is here!



Circuit de CastellolĂ­, 14:00.

Montes has summoned 80 members of the international motor press to the CastellolĂ­ circuit, where he has presented the intermediate member of the Urban sports versions family. Among the 230hp of the Turbo GT, and the 401 of the MRP 3.5. The RS Turbo.

This version, unlike the other two, equipped with integral traction. But the most interesting thing is under the hood: it equips a turbo engine, 2.5L, 5 cylinders, capable of developing up to 300cv at 7500 RPM, and 330Nm at 4100RPM.

Apart from specific elements of this version, such as the bumpers, and fog lights on the lower lip, as an extra, you can order the golden rims made of magnesium, made by Rays, as well as the Apple Red Metallic paint.

As for transmissions, it comes standard with a 7-speed manual, as well as an MDC of 7, as an option.

You can already reserve at the dealership, with a starting price of $ 40,715.

For media that have not been able to attend the event, as well as for those interested, a test unit can be requested.

Montes X90 MRP S

Look at its defined line, which mixes sportsmanship with elegance. Its marked bumpers, and its captivating wheels.

Do you think you’re ready to tame their 566 hp?


The X90 MRP S, carries the same V12 5.8 biturbo from the X90 exclusive, unmodified. Because the MRP engineers, they wanted to focus on the dynamic section.

For this, the suspension has been changed by a pneumatic, fully piloted suspension, with specific setup, and lowered 3 cm. The brakes, changed by a carbon-ceramic brakes of 4 pistons in front, and 2 behind, with discs of 365 and 285 respectively. To be able to stop the car from 100 to 0, in an impressive 34.7m, without any fatigue, whatever the driving style, despite its 2177 kg.

The rims, of 21 "and specific design, are made of a magnesium alloy, to reduce unsprung masses, and are shod with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 sport tires.

And the transmission, has been changed by the MRP of 7 speeds and double clutch, to be able to extract all the potential to this powerful engine. And of course, it transmits the traction, to the 4 wheels, thanks to the differentials piloted electronically (central, rear and front), to guarantee the maximum effectiveness, as well as security.

We reduced the weight, changing the interior materials, and removing a seat, to have in total, 4 individual seats. A fifth can be ordered as an option.

It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h, in 4 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited to 300 km/h.

The price of this version is $102,923.

Soon there will be another MRP trim, which will equip a V8.

Montes and WTLP


From 1 September this year, manufacturers we will be required to homologate our new models for the European Union, under the cycle WTLP, instead the NEDC. This means that both consumption as emissions, is measured in real conditions, road. So consumption approved will vary and taxation, as well the declared fuel consumption.

Our current range, to be approved under this new cycle, does not affect the tax burden.

The only exception is the Excelsior and Amagosta.

And for that reason, we have asked the moratorium to wait for the next generation of both models
