2008 ENCO 550 GT Biturbo news, pictures, and information
ENCO 550 GT Biturbo – Noble SUV based on the Porsche Cayenne TurboAlready since the year 2000, the Chemnitz-based company ENCO develops and produces fascinating vehicle modifications for demanding customers. The latest creation of the Saxon designer is the ENCO 550 GT Biturbo and is based on the face-lifted Porsche Cayenne. Precise craftsmanship and a perfected technology are the hallmarks of the masculine aerodynamics pack as well as the powerful motor acceleration. Striking, black lacquered XXL-rims enclose the boosted sport brake system which matches the advanced requirements. An exclusive interior programme completes the refinement.
Haute Couture for the road
The designer outfit makes the ENCO 550 GT Biturbo an eye-catcher on the road, and off-road as well. Accurate fabrication and perfect surfaces document the quality of the ENCO aerodynamic pack. Another component of the dynamic front is a far more sportive front apron wîth larger cooling slots. The very light bonnet which is strengthened by carbon has two slots, the 'Powerdome' for additional fresh air supply for the front motor. The ENCO 550 GT Biturbo obtains its strong masculine accent by its broadened side wings. With its additional side spoiler the side body swells up to 1,999 mm. The ENCO rear spoiler wîth its integrated diffuser completes the superior appearance and makes space for the four stainless steel end pipes wîth its sonorous sport exhaust.
Exhaust sound by the specialist
Apart from the excellent sound, the established specialist for exhaust systems puts a special emphasis on increased efficiency. The interaction of ENCO-components, such as sport baffle, sport catalysts, high performance manifold and an optimized motor characteristic, lead to an increased efficiency up to 550 hp / 405 kw at 6,100 rpm per minute. Moreover, the torque grows to 730 Nm at 2,300 – 4,600 rpm per minute. The modified Porsche-SÚV shortens the spurt from zero to 100 km/h to an impressive 4.9 seconds and increases the maximum speed up to 282 km/h.
Design wheels and sport brakes in XXL-format
An opulently dimensioned sport brake system gives the ENCO 550 GT Biturbo excellent deceleration measures. Brake discs measuring 400 x 36 mm (front) and 380 x 32 mm (rear) are sandwiched by the front six- and rear four-piston unit. The refiner recommends the striking one-piece 11Jx23-inch light alloy rim from the ENCO-programme which can be matched wîth wheels measuring 315/25 R23 and render a powerful individual look wîth their black varnish and their white ornamental strip. Furthermore, the masculine appearance can be enhanced wîth the ENCO chassis components. A sport module has been especially developed for the air suspension of the Cayenne which expands the serial functions and therefore lowers the ENCO 550 GT Biturbo by up to 50 mm.
Multimedia in a luxurious ambience
We only use high-quality materials for the noble ENCO interior. Perfect decorative stitching on the dash board and seats set creative accents and fulfill the extraordinarily beautiful overall appearance of the full leather equipment. The ergonomically re-mastered airbag §teering wheel is highly slip-proof. And not only that: also as far as multimedia is concerned, ENCO has introduced new components as well. The automobile refiner integrated monitors in the front head-rests which can be connected to a DVD-player, a DVB-T-tuner or if wished to a game console.
Prices for the ENCO 550 GT Biturbo start at 170,000 euros ex works.
