Techart's 2010 GTStreet R based on the Porsche 911 Turbo made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The GTStreet program of this German tuner is considered a huge success -- with its having full on-track capability as well as being fit for the street. The TECHART TA 097/T3.1 performance kit is claimed to push 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.
The GTStreet R is able to accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds due to TECHART's sport clutch and modifications made to the transmission ratio of the standard 6-speed gearbox results.
The permanent dynamic propulsion has a limit of 345km/h. The car's design was also modified. The GTStreet R aerodynamic kit boasts of having a lowered front apron with carbon splitter, providing downthrust on the front axle and improved airflow to the brakes and intercooler.
The adjustable rear spoiler with air inlets and rear apron with integrated carbon diffuser add to the high level of downthrust on the rear axle.
They also allow for an optimum drag coefficient. The GTStreet R offers a better grip, a result of its new rims. Techart Formula 5-spoke light alloy wheels in dimensions of 19" and 20" are also featured in this car.
Buyers can choose from a Conti Sport Contact 3 or Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Plus tires. To those who think that the car's ride height could pose some problems, Techart has actually anticipated this issue and now offers a nose-lift system that allows the driver to raise the vehicle by up to 60 millimeters at the front axle.
