2010 TechArt GTStreet R news, pictures, and information
TECHART GTStreet R based on Porsche 911 TurboThe TECHART GTStreet program has been recognised for years as a success formula wîth its sights firmly set on dynamics and incorporating racing engineering to create vehicles that stand for pure driving pleasure as well as full on-track capability. The latest example is the GTStreet R based on the 911 Turbo; it is now undergoing its world premiere. Its road performance statistic, 660hp and 860Nm, is highly impressive - developed by the TECHART engineers who are driven by the ambition of not submitting compromises. And just as uncompromising is the vehicle's suitability for everyday use, thanks to its day-driving light and integrated TECHART nose-lift system.
High-End PerformanceThe impressive performance is primarily down to the TECHART TA 097/T3.1 performance kit, which raises the power of the standard model from 500 to 660 hp. At 4,500rpm, this means that a maximum torque of 860Nm can be transmitted to the permanent four-wheel drive system. TECHART's sport clutch and modifications to the transmission ratio of the standard 6-speed gearbox results in the GTStreet R's sprint performance of 0 to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds. The permanent dynamic propulsion only reaches its limit at 345km/h.
The essential power driver of the vehicle design is the TECHART GTStreet R aerodynamic kit. The significantly lowered front apron wîth carbon splitter provides downthrust on the front axle and improved airflow to the brakes and intercooler. The adjustable rear spoiler wîth air inlets and rear apron wîth integrated carbon diffuser contribute to the high level of downthrust on the rear axle while ensuring an optimum drag coefficient. Handling in extreme conditions is significantly smoother as a result. The TECHART multifunctional day-driving light system, integrated in the front apron, has E approval and fulfils ECE R87 regulations. It is much more than just a sophisticated design feature – it also makes an all-round constant contribution to safety, both day and night. The LED system unit integrates the day-driving light, sidelights, parking lights and indicators in a single housing, and merges harmonically wîth the general design of the vehicle's front end. The output intensity of the light is automatically modified in line wîth the selected driving light circuit.
Maximum grip and everyday suitability
The TECHART Formula 5-spoke light alloy wheels in dimensions of 19' and 20' transfer the enormous level of available power securely to the tarmac. For optimum road holding, TECHART recommends fitting either Conti Sport Contact 3 or Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Plus tires. The TECHART VarioPlus threaded chassis design means that it is possible to adjust the chassis height by up to 25 millimetres, to suit the route conditions. The TECHART nose-lift system allows the driver to raise the vehicle by up to 60 millimetres at the front axle, at the touch of a button, to avoid unpleasant contact wîth kerb edges or steeply inclined upward road surfaces.
High end down to the last detail
Passion and love of detail – the exclusive TECHART character is also reflected in the interior of the sports car. TECHART's complete leather furnishings, including the door and side panels, emanate a unique feel, in combination wîth the delicately fashioned and custom-coloured decorative stitching on the centre console and bucket seats, and in other places too. Individual decorative components made of carbon fibre, the aluminium pedals, and the illuminated entrance sills serve to further enhance the uniquely athletic appearance of the interior. All in all, TECHART offers a virtually unlimited degree of freedom when it comes to customising the interior – wîth passion down to the last detail.
Keeping 680 hp tamed for two weeks
TECHART is displaying the GTStreet R based on the Porsche 911 Turbo in black and phantom grey at the Geneva Motor Show. Although the vehicle is forced to remain stationary during the two-week show, the incredible power of the 660bhp athlete is quite evident. The GTR front spoiler is seamlessly incorporated in the shape of the bumper, conveying its pure sporting character the moment you first look at it. The black leather interior is further proof that TECHART knows a few things about convincing design. The car's uncompromising athleticism is immediately visible from the high-grip, hand-stitched TECHART 3-spoke sport §teering wheel, the sport pedals and TECHART gear lever, and further enhanced by the delicate, red stitching.
Another element which is GTStreet R through and through are the TECHART leather sport seats, which not only ensure an uncommonly high level of comfort and excellent side support, but are also fashioned from high-class materials. Such as the hand-made seat covering made of fine and durable leather and the backrests finished in the vehicle colour wîth the GTstreet R logo.
TECHART Concept One – Design Study Individualization Porsche Panamera
|Engine : 3.8 L., 6-cylinder|
Power: 660 hp
Torque: 635 ft-lbs
In OE quality and fully manufactured from high-quality PÚ-RIM, the carrara white exterior package convinces owing to its massive and white characteristics. The front apron wîth integrated air inlets self-consciously emphasizes the design of the sporty 4-seater and also provides an improved air flow of the charge air intercoolers as well as improved brake cooling. A highlight is the distinct, extravagantly designed bonnet wîth inwrought air outlets. Powerful fenders and side skirts ensure a seamless transition among the wide wheel arches. Trim strips and elegant trim frames in the windows show the individualization down to the smallest detail typical of TECHART. The rear apron wîth integrated air openings and matching diffuser, together wîth the height-adjustable rear spoiler, rounds off the distinct exterior design. The double flow, black tail pipe of the TECHART stainless steel sports exhaust system also provide sporty accents in the striking rear of the vehicle. 22-inch TECHART Formula III forged light alloy wheels in exclusive dull platinum gray wîth Continental Sport Contact 3 tires fit seamlessly into the Porsche Panamera color combination and underline its self-conscious appearance.
A look under the bonnet also knows how to convince the study. The TECHART engine optic package wîth carbon fiber engine covering, TECHART logotype and flash red coating already makes the visitor to the trade fair stand feel the power of the Panamera Turbo – increased once again by TECHART wîth a power thrust of up to 150 hp.
Convincing peak performances
The overall design concept for the exterior wîth a 21-mm wider front axis and a 42-mm wider rear axis compared to the serial model is convincing owing to the TECHART-typical suitability for everyday use. The multifunctional TECHART daylight driving headlight system contributes essentially to the active safety of the driver by combining daylight headlights, parking lights and turn signal lights as an LED system unit in one common housing that seamlessly fits into the vehicle front design. The intensity of the lights adjusts automatically to the selected headlight circuit. Additionally, the headlight can also be dimmed for improving the effect of the turn signal lights, even while turning off.
TECHART sets standards in the interior
TECHART sets standards in the finishing of automobile interiors. As in the areas of technical revision, aerodynamic optimization and exterior design, the passion for perfection is here once again in the sports car that can make the individual ideas of the TECHART customers a reality. TECHART's saddlery, well-known for valuable manufactured work, convinces in the study's interior through its unique internal finishing. The TECHART full leather finish in the cocoa and white color combination, leather applications on trim parts in cerbero as well as manually processed decorative stitching in phosphor green masterly reflect the unique external appearance in the interior as well. White carpeting in the vehicle's interior and trunk, the roof liner in alcantara and the white face wîth phosphor green digits complete the unusual individualization.
TECHART's top-class interior options
For the first time in the Concept One Study, TECHART presents the 3-spoke PDK sports §teering wheel wîth shift paddles. The driver can now shift one gear upwards wîth one hand and one gear downwards wîth the other one.
In addition, the study also shows some exclusive extras: A 10.2-inch ceiling monitor wîth integrated DVD player, a rear center console and two high-quality folding tables built into the front seats will also help pass the time in the back seat of the Panamera – whether for entertainment or work – this is left to the customer's personal imagination – as is almost everything at TECHART.Source - TechArt
