The Porsche tuning specialist was able to extract an additional 187hp from the Turbo S’ 3.8-liter flat-six engine thanks to a pair of newly developed variable-geometry turbochargers. The final numbers are just mesmerizing: 759hp (770PS) and 678lb-ft (920Nm) of torque.
With so much firepower available, it’s no wonder that the new TechArt GTstreet RS comes with insane acceleration figures: 0-62mph (100km/h) in 2.5 seconds, 0-124mph (200km/h) in 8.1 seconds and a top speed that’s limited (!) to 211mph (340km/h).
“However, on a high speed testing ground and equipped with specially homologated sports tires, the new TechArt GTstreet RS performance powerkit allows speeds of around 360 km/h (224mph)”, Steven Ratz, technical CEO at TechArt Automobildesign said.
TechArt has updated the exterior with its own Forged Design Carbon body kit, which features randomly arranged carbon strands and also provides additional downforce without altering the drag coefficient. The rear spoiler can extend and be adjusted by 15 degrees while the centerlock wheels are a special version of TechArt’s forged Formula IV Race design.
Each of the 10 GTstreet RS models will feature their limited edition number on the front hood. In addition, the rear and rear side windows are made of lightweight Corning Gorilla glass while the carbon rear diffuser is accompanied by four titanium exhaust tailpipes. The latter feature a electronically controlled flap adjustment to switch between different levels of noise.
The interior has been treated with lots of Alcantara, leather, as well as genuine virgin wool. The floor mats, dashboard, center tunnel, center console, sun visors, door pillars and the roof lining are covered with Alcantara. The door panels and seats feature a combination of leather, Alcantara and wool while the trim details can be custom painted to the customer’s desires. There’s also six-point harnesses, a roll bar as well as color-matched door pulls.
