I don’t know what possessed Wimmer RS tuners to think about modifying a beast such as Porsche GT2, but whatever the inspiration was, it was strong! Because they have gone berserk with the car and managed to extract a simply colossal 827 hp and 948 Nm of torque. Now the only thing you need is a pair of stainless steel balls to drive it! cuz it’s pretty darn fast!
It is in fact ridiculously fast! zero to 100 km/h is done in 3.38 seconds but that is nothing compare to the car’s to speed of 387 km/h.
But have they done to that flat-six engine to achieve this much power? The Wimmer GT2 Speed Bi-Turbo Power Package includes very sophisticated engine retrofitting. Besides the modifications of the engine block, pistons, piston rods, injection nozzles, sports camshafts, inlet system, throttle valve and the installation of an intercooler, Wimmer uses absolutely new engine software. Nevertheless, the centerpiece of the engine retrofit is the two high performance Wimmer turbochargers blowing a heavy load of air into the combustion chambers. The specially produced Wimmer Sport Exhaust System in complex with the welded exhaust manifold and two exhaust systems provide for furious roaring and whooshing – GT2 Speed replies to every push of the gas pedal by an incredible boost!
Wimmer GT2 Speed is also decorated to some extent to be distinguished from ordinary GT2s by carbon fiber mirrors, spoiler lip and rear wing. There is also a new set of Sportec 20-inch wheels under the car wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx GT tires (235/30-20 front and 325/25-20 rear). The suspension system is also upgraded with H&R springs.
Driving the Wimmer GT2 will definitely be quit fun. Dangerous maybe but in a fun way! Mind you the price of this fun is a bit quit high at €281,000!
