2017 Techart Magnum Sport based on Cayenne Turbo S unveiled ahead of 2016 Essen Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on November 30, 2016

Techart has long been known for presenting a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S-based Magnum during the Essen Motor Show. Its bold campaign has not wavered for the 2016 show as the company has showcased a 720 HP Magnum Sport model.

That figure is not just part of the name but is the actual output making this version the most powerful among the world’s premium SUVs. In fact, one can say that it serves as the perfect challenger to the Brabus GLE 850, for example.

The package being offered right now includes components that have been improved with carbon fiber. Examples of these are the headlight trims, rear spoiler, roof spoiler, and trims of the side mirror. Looking closely at the trim of the taillight, one can clearly observe that it has undergone the carbon fiber treatment.

It is however difficult to see what is inside although there is a good chance it may be wrapped in the Magnum Sport exclusive leather, the same one seen on the prior versions. With this in mind, one can assume also that there will be a carbon styling package that covers not only the console and the dashboard but the doors as well. There is also a Sport steering wheel that is covered in leather.

Techart has been known for creating Magnums going all the way back to 2004. As such, Porsche Cayenne mods made by Techart is one of the most recognizable in the world. In addition to the Magnum Sport, Techart will be displaying as well tuned versions of Porsche models. The 2016 Essen Motor Show is open until the 4th of December this year.

The tuning company had previously unveiled a Magnum Sport during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. In terms of visuals, the company offered a body styling kit for the body that is finished in Sapphire Blue Metallic. A number of parts have been enhanced with the use of carbon fiber and this is rounded off with a styling package for the exterior with a gloss black finish. On the inside, Techart offered the center console, dashboard, and doors, in a graphite gray carbon styling package. Similar to the dashboard, the Sport 3-spoke steering wheel is covered in leather. The seats and A-pillar have undergone the same treatment as well.

Techart’s version is based on the Cayenne Turbo S from Porsche with the latest model unveiled during the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. Powering it is the 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that can deliver 570 hp and peak torque of 590 lb.-ft. With this output, the Cayenne Turbo S can reach maximum speed of 176 mph with acceleration from 0 to 60 mph possible in 3.8 seconds.

Even with all this power, stopping is not an issue with the ceramic brakes with the 10-piston calipers and 16.5-inch discs on the front and 4-piston calipers and 14.-6-inch discs on the rear. Fitted as standard is the Dynamic Chassis Control system and the Torque Vectoring system.
