If you are looking for a special SUV and want to get noticed wherever you will go, we might have the perfect solution for you. We received today this tip from Mark and we must admit that it is one of the weirdest vehicle we’ve seen lately. As you can see from the photos, this is a red 2004 Porsche Cayenne S, but take a closer look and you will notice the Ferrari badges! That’s right, Ferrari badges!
We must admit that the car looks pretty good, featuring an aggressive body kit consisting of a new front bumper with large air intakes, a redesigned front hood with aggressive lines, enlarged front and rear fenders, new side sills, a rear roof spoiler and a new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and four-pipe exhaust system.
The owner of this right-hand drive Porsche Cayenne S changed the Porsche badges with genuine chrome badges and stickers from Ferrari but also painted the SUV in the Ferrari Mars Red colour. Inside, the vehicle didn’t receive any modifications except a Ferrari badge on the steering wheel.
The big surprise is under the hood, where the 4.5-liter V8 engine now runs on GAS/LPG and features a 100 litre tank in the booth. According to the owner, the SUV needs only 9.4 liters of fuel to travel 100 km. So, if you really want to buy it, you can check it here! Thanks for the tip Mark!
The new 2008 Porsche Cayenne now features a new face marked by a new headlight design as well as a new wide and muscular body marked by broad wheel arches. Moreover, its newly sculpted sheet metal serves as evidence of its much improved technical elements.
As designed, the new Porsche Cayenne SUV doesn’t only look powerful, but the vehicle itself is oozing with power. After all, its core is served by engines that deliver up to 500 hp. This amount of power is complemented by an array of new dynamic technologies that enable the Porsche Cayenne to be as nimble as a sports car while still capable of towing a trailer or traversing off the road. All three models of the 2008 Porsche Cayenne models come with engines featuring direct fuel injection, which enhances both power generation and fuel efficiency.
Powering the most dynamic form of the SUV – the new 2008 Porsche Cayenne Turbo – is a twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V8 engine that could deliver 500 hp of output and 516 lb.-ft. of torque. This power is sent to all four wheels through a six-speed Tiptronic S transmission, allowing the Cayenne Turbo to sprint from nil to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.9 seconds, with the ability to reach a track top speed of 171 mph (275 km/h).
Despite this amount of superior power, the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo is regarded as an LEVII (low-emission vehicle). Preliminary fuel economy tests showed the advantages brought by the direct fuel injection technology to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. Compared to its predecessor, the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo offers an increase of up to 11 percent in terms of highway fuel economy. As per EPA estimates, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo returns 13 mpg for city driving and 20 mpg on the highway.
