2007 TechArt Magnum de Sede news, pictures, and information
German-Swiss Precision: The TechArt Interior Line de Sede of SwitzerlandExclusive automobile interiors have gained TechArt Automobildesign worldwide fame and recognition. The Swiss furniture manufacturer de Sede occupies the same lofty position in the area of seating furniture. The idea of combining the unique qualities of both companies in new automotive creations was born in 2006. At the Geneva Motor Show 2007 they present a 600-hp / 442-kW TechArt MAGNÚM featuring the new TechArt interior line 'de Sede of Switzerland.'
de Sede was founded more than 50 years ago, and is run by its two owners, Hans-Peter Fässler and Bernhard Schüler. Privateer Fässler is a passionate art and car enthusiast. The world-renowned manufacturer of exclusive luxury furniture is home in Klingnau, Switzerland. Only cows from Switzerland and southern Germany are used to make the various types of de Sede leathers. de Sede sells its chairs, sofas and tables in 120 countries around the globe.
With the TechArt interior line 'de Sede of Switzerland' these exquisite materials now also find their way into the automobile. The exclusive de Sede leathers are specially treated to account for the harsh climate conditions in an automobile.
TechArt Automobildesign's company-own upholstery shop places utmost importance on perfect workmanship down to the last detail. Highly experienced upholsterers transform the high-quality de Sede leathers into covers for seats, doors, dashboard, roof pillars and headliner.
In addition to choice de Sede leathers the seats also feature a unique soft-touch padding structure wîth areas of gradual firmness that are custom-tailored to the human body. The result is exceptional seating comfort combined wîth excellent lateral support.
|Engine : 8-cylinder|
Power: 600 hp
Torque: 638 ft-lbs
The TechArt interior line 'de Sede of Switzerland' also features a state-of-the-art multimedia system. Two LCD touch screens are integrated into the back of the front headrests. Rear passengers can choose between watching a DVD on the 6-disc DVD changer or programs from the integrated digital TV tuner. They also serve as monitors for playing games on a Playstation2 game console. The sound is carried by wireless RF hi-fi headphones.
Color-coordinated carpets wîth de Sede leather borders and embroidered TechArt logo round out the design concept in the interior and even in the trunk. TechArt further adds color-coordinated instruments, sporty aluminum or hand-made precious-wood applications as well as a sport-§teering wheel covered wîth comfortable de Sede.
With the TechArt interior line 'de Sede of Switzerland' the two partners offer a unique interior design that brings the legendary comfort of a de Sede sofa to the automobile.
The MAGNÚM is based on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. With it, TechArt Automobildesign offers not just exclusive interior design but also dominating power and a strikingly styled exterior.
With the TechArt TA 048/T3 performance kit the twin-turbo V8 engine delivers 600 hp / 442 kW and a peak torque of 865 Nm. The 4x4 storms from rest to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 292 km/h.
The perfect complement to the power kit is the TechArt fully stainless-steel TechArt sport exhaust system. Cayenne owners can choose to combine the rear muffler wîth the stock tailpipes of the car or wîth four chrome-plated TechArt tailpipes.
The fender flares of the TechArt MAGNÚM body conversion add eight centimeters to the width of the SÚV from Zuffenhausen. That means there's room for king-size 10Jx22 one-piece TechArt Formula or the new Formula II multi-piece design light-alloy wheels all around. The ContiCrossContact ÚHP tires in size 295/30 ZR 22 on front and rear axles are approved on the Cayenne for speeds up 300 km/h.
The TechArt MAGNÚM front apron looks great wîth its strikingly styled large air inlets. It features two fog lamps and two high beams, and its refined shape reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds.
The TechArt MAGNÚM side sills form a harmonious transition between front and rear fender flares.
The TechArt MAGNÚM rear apron features custom cutouts for the two intertwined oval-shaped tailpipes of the stainless-steel TechArt sport exhaust system. An integrated diffuser helps reduce lift on the rear axle.
TechArt Automobildesign further refines the Cayenne body wîth headlight moldings, a three-piece tail lamp molding and a rear panel that carries the shape of the rear apron over to the tailgate.
The new TechArt hood is strikingly styled and features air outlets for improved venting of hot air from the engine bay, thus contributing to a thermally healthy engine.
TechArt Automobildesign also modifies the suspension of the widened Cayenne extensively. For vehicles equipped wîth air suspension there is the TechArt sport module, which can lower the ride height of the SÚV for on-road operations by up to 60 millimeter. For tough off-road use the ride height can be increased by up to 70 millimeters.
TechArt Automobildesign can also refine the Cayenne interior in countless ways. The options for the Porsche Cayenne range from exclusive cockpit accessories to the completion of the leather interior available ex-factory to an entirely new individual TechArt fully leather interior. Also available is a stylishly integrated state-of-the-art multimedia system.Source - TechArt
