TOPCAR has unveiled an updated version of Stingray GTR kit developed for the 2014 Porsche Panamera as its looks to heighten the interest of fans of unique cars and gain new orders from customers. The Stingray GTR – a large-scale tuning program for the Porsche Panamera – entails replacing almost all external elements of the vehicle -- front and rear bumpers, hood, front and rear wings, sills, and doors.
While power elements monocoque and doors remain intact, there’s a drastic change in the Panamera’s looks. The installation of the Stingray GTR kit employs a special technology that splices carbon elements with metal base body of the car. This way, the Panamera Stingray GTR will boast of better aerodynamics and aesthetically correct contours and shapes.
TOPCAR’s aerodynamic kit is comprised of elements made from carbon fiber and Kevlar technology vacuum forming, rendering the Panamera perfect in terms of both design and production technology. The tuning, however, does not end with the installation of the aerodynamic body kit, as a client could opt to have his Panamera fitted with an interior that suits his own taste.
Porsche Panamera Stingray GTR also entails an increase in engine power of up to 700hp and replacement of the brake and exhaust systems. A customer could also opt for TOPCAR ultralight forged wheels ADV.1 Wheels to complete his Panamera’s new looks.
The exterior of the new Panamera has a more advanced design, a fact that is clear even with just one look. Its front end shows linework that are more pronounced and even tighter. This is made apparent by the air intakes that are now larger and that uniquely transition to the headlights. Its rear section meanwhile has the new boot lid as its defining feature.
By making the windscreen in the rear wider, the horizontal features of the Gran Turismo are highlighted and with it the sporty character. This results in the Panamera having a visual look of a lower road stance.
Cementing this feel is the license plate bracket incorporated in the lower area of the bumper. The body section of the rear has also been redesigned and now has a wider spoiler with the transition to the rear lights made tighter. This effect is the same as the visual transition presented by the headlights on the front. The side meanwhile reveals a more swept-back windscreen which results in a silhouette that is more extended.
Under the Executive models, the elegant and tight linework are now more prominent. Since the doors in the rear are longer by 15 cm, this gives the windows new proportions. Similar to the previous versions, the new Panamera has a number of differentiating qualities on the exterior. There is for example the brake calipers and the color contrast, typically associated with a specific engine.
However, the most substantial identifying qualities would have to be the model-specific tailpipes and the front-end components that come in different shapes. There are also a number of options offered that result in customization. A good example would be the new LED headlights that give the Gran Turismo that special look.
