HOW TO RUIN A 911 TURBO

Top Gear (UK) - - INTAKE -

Ger­man tuner TechArt has been lis­ten­ing to all those that con­sider the 911 Turbo not “su­per” enough, and come back with this: the GTstreet R. It sports an ac­tive aero kit com­plete with mas­sive two-tier car­bon wing, car­bon-fi­bre pan­els for in­creased light­ness, 20in forged al­loys, ac­tive coilover sus­pen­sion and shouty ex­haust sys­tem. The in­te­rior is re­skinned with new, colour­ful leather and more Al­can­tara be­fore the car is given a splash of rave paint out­side. Work has also been done on the en­gine. Seven hun­dred and twenty bhp of work (a 140bhp in­crease over stan­dard) so it’ll hit 62mph in 2.7secs (down from 2.9), 124mph in 8.5 (in­stead of 9.9), and top out at 211mph (in­stead of 205mph). The re­sult? It’s hideous, spec­tac­u­larly hideous. Good work.
