2007 TechArt Cayman S Widebody news, pictures, and information
Athletic Beauty: TechArt Cayman S WidebodyThe TechArt Widebody based on the Porsche Cayman S doesn't only offer spectacular design but also extra driving fun and agility. After the huge success of the Widebody concept for the current Boxster generation, the German tuner TechArt now developed a wide body version for the mid-engine coupe.
With the add-on fender flarings on front and rear axle the TechArt Widebody is eight centimeters wider than the standard car. The front extensions don't only provide extra room inside the wheel houses but also improve the deventilation of the heated up air wîth their integrated wheel-house ventilation. The rear flarings are equipped wîth largely dimensioned air ducts to bring fresh air to the centrally placed engine.
Apart from spectacular, sporty design the TechArt designers of course paid attention to optimal aerodynamic efficiency. The TechArt front spoiler bumper reduces the lift at the front axle and improves the cooling of the front brakes wîth large air ducts. The TechArt rear apron wîth integrated diffuser rounds out the conversion.
The tail of the car can be alternatively upgraded wîth the large TechArt GT sport rear wing or a subtle rear spoiler.
Extremely broad wheels and tires make the TechArt Widebody concept for the Boxster complete: Specially for this wide body version they developed custom-made versions of the one-piece TechArt Formula five spoke wheel. The front axle is equipped wîth wheels in size 8.5Jx20, the rear axle is equipped wîth 12Jx20 wheels.
|Engine : 3.8 L., 6-cylinder|
Power: 380 hp
Torque: 306 ft-lbs
TechArt also offers engine tuning for the Widebody. The two watercooled six-cylinder boxer engines can be upgraded wîth the TechArt power kits. They each consist of a sport air filter and newly programmed engine electronics. The result: 15 bhp extra power and optimized road performance.
Another performance option is the TechArt increase in displacement from standard 3,387 cm3 to 3,824 cm3. The increase is facilitated by a bore enlarged to 99 millimeters wîth the corresponding larger special pistons, and by the installation of a special crankshaft.
The engine conversion further includes sports camshafts. A modified intake manifold wîth special air filter system and an aluminum header provide ample combustion air. The perfect interaction of all these components including the fully stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system wîth high-performance manifolds is orchestrated by new mapping for the engine electronics.
With a maximum power output of 385 bhp and a peak torque of 300 lb-ft the TechArt displacement engine satisfies both highly sporty minded drivers as well as those pilots who want lots of pulling power from low engine speed.
Powered by this engine, the mid-engine sports car offers excellent performance: The sprint from 0 - 62 mph takes just 4.9 seconds, and wîth a top speed of 188 mph, the TechArt two-seater easily bests its production counterpart in this discipline, too.
TechArt offers individual full leather trims in all colors and designs for the Widebody. The range reaches from completing the ex-works leather trims up to a completely redesigned cockpit wîth special sports seats and ergonomically shaped airbag sports §teering wheel.Source - TechArt
