SpeedART BTR II based on 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The new Porsche 911 Turbo is known throughout the market as one of the fastest production cars in the market but SpeedART, the German tuner, didn't think that it was enough. SpeedART chose to enhance the BTR II 580.

Because of the reprogrammed ECU and a new sport exhaust system that comes with a sound control switch, SpeedART was able to add 80 hp more and achieve 120 Nm of torque from the 3.8-liter turbocharged flat-six boosting output to 580 hp.

These enabled the car to go from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h or 202 mph for the PDK double-clutch model.

The power kit is priced at €9,890. If that's still not good enough for you, SpeedART is also preparing a more powerful engine kit with 650 hp.

Complementing the engine modifications are new 20-inch alloy wheels with high-performance tires size 245/30 up front and 325/25 at the back for a total cost of €6,640. Buyers may also choose to upgrade the BTR II 580's suspension.

SpeedART offers a bodykit that consists of a front apron, side skirts, rear diffuser, rooftop spoiler and a rear wing plus Porsche 911 GT3-style that is priced from €5,100.

The package has numerous interior upgrades including sport seats with carbon shell in leather, alcantara or special design variations, a sport steering wheel featuring shift paddles for the PDK gearbox and carbon fiber trim.

The sport exhaust system that comes standard provides the undeniable GTS sound. Along with the singular black surfaced style of the exhaust pipes, the system creates a distinct sound and visual persona. The specific configuration, interplaying the engine with the control of the exhaust slats, makes the GTS automobiles create a sound that is much more dynamic while shifting, under full-throttle, and during coasting.

The elegance that is typical GTS can also be seen on the 911 Carrera GTS exterior. Every model has the body of a 911 Carrera 4 that has flared real wheel arches and the broadened track of the all-wheel-drive 911. The 20” centre lock wheels also come standard. Before, these wheels were available with the 918 Spyder, 911 GT3, and 911 Turbo versions. On the 911 Carrera GTS, they come exclusively painted in glossy black.

GTS look finds enhancement from sport designed trim at the front with an outlet for the extra central radiator, coloured Bi-Xenon headlamps, and the sporty designed side mirrors. Black accents at the trim strips have been added on the air inlet, chrome-plated exhaust pipes, and 911 Carrera GTS emblems on the doors and rear lids.

Consistently athletic interior with leather and Alcantara

The inside of the 911 Carrera GTS reminds one of the GTS sporty personality. At the front, adjustable four-way sports plus seats have black GTS logos on the headrests. These seats offer added lateral support along with comfort long-range. To improve further the vehicle's power-to-weight proportions, the seats in the rear have an option to be removed for the coupé (except in the US), reducing weight by nearly seven kilogrammes as opposed to the 911 Carrera S, despite its broad body. The rear also has the GTS logo in the carpeting. Along with leather, the main material inside is black Alcantara.

This high-quality material, weighing half that of leather, is on the centre panels of the seats and as trim for the steering wheel, gear shift, and parking brake levers, door handles, along with the lids and door storage extensions. The instrument cluster dials that sport the GTS emblem, the anodised aluminium trim strips and the roof lining also come in black. The door’s aluminium sill plates featuring the name Carrera GTS in black are standard.
