At this year’s Nardo high speed event a lot of new records are being claimed mostly by tuners, who have only one one thing on their minds: going faster! We had the AC Schnitzer BMW as the fastest diesel, the Steinmetz Insignia which is the fastest Opel, and now this, a modified Porsche Cayenne Turbo by TECHART which has set a new speed record for a full-size at 321,2 km/h. However, it’s a little slower than Brabus’ V12 GLK revealed a few days ago with a top speed of 322 km/h!
TECHART’s Cayenne uses the same ingredients as the Turbo S model but the TA 055/2.2 performance kit it generates 680 hp. It is also equipped with a sport air suspension system and a carbon fiber aerodynamic kit consisting of front spoiler, side skirts, roof wing and rear diffuser. Other upgrades you get with this car include daytime running lights, sports steering wheel, carbon kit, aluminium pedals, decorative stitching and seat belts in gray, additional leather in Luxury Black and illuminated door entry guards with the TECHART logo made the car to a highlight in the pit lane.
Since this event is sponsored by Continental, TECHART has used Continental Cross Contact UHP high-performance tires on 22-inch TECHART Formula rims for the record run and put their own test driver Sandro Reuter at the wheel.
