Guardian Evo is Hamann's 550HP Wide-Body Version of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Tuning house Hamann doesn’t do subtle. What it does do is take premium sports cars and SUVs and turn them into exclusive, and some times, over-the-top creations. One such example is the Guardian Evo that will debut at the 82nd Geneva Motor Show.

The name may not be giving any clues, but nonetheless, the latest proposal of the German tuning firm is based on the second generation of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

The Guardian Evo is fitted with a body kit that comprises a significantly extended front bumper with larger air intakes, integrated daytime running lights plus LED fog- and full-beam lights.

It also stands out thanks to its carbon bonnet, which apart from being very light, has a “power dome” to enhance the engine’s ventilation. The wheel arches of the Cayenne have been widened by 120mm at the front and 160mm at the rear, while the styling package is rounded off with a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser and twin steel exhaust pipes plus 23-inch alloy wheels with 315/25 Dunlop Sport Maxx tires.

The interior also gets the full Hamann treatment with embroidered and stitched leather among other things.

Finally, thanks to a retuned engine map, a sports air filter and a custom exhaust, maximum power has increased from the Cayenne Turbo’s 500PS to 550PS, while torque stands at 770Nm at 2,300-4,600 rpm, compared to the standard version’s 700Nm at 2,250-4,500 rpm.

The Guardian Evo is 0.1 seconds faster in the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint at 4.6 seconds compared to the factory model's 4.7 seconds, while its top speed has been increased to 300 km/h (187mph), up from 278 km/h (173mph).
