And if that's not satisfactory, the German tuner said that it is also preparing a more powerful engine kit with 650HP.

The engine mods are complemented by new 20-inch alloy wheels with high-performance tires size 245/30 up front and 325/25 at the back for a total cost of €6,640 while buyers may also choose to upgrade the BTR II 580's suspension.

SpeedART also offers a bodykit that consists of a front apron, side skirts, rear diffuser, rooftop spoiler and a rear wing plus Porsche 911 GT3-style stickers for €5,100.

The package can be rounded off with numerous interior upgrades including sport seats with carbon shell in leather, alcantara or special design variations, a sport steering wheel with F1 shift paddles for PDK and carbon fiber decorative trim.
