A few weeks ago, German tuner 9ff unveiled the GTurbo tuning package, but while the most powerful version developed 1,000 HP, 9ff pulled the GTurbo 1200 straight out of a hat during the Essen Motorshow. For those not packing much common sense, that’s a model developing a spectacular 1,200 HP.
The GTurbo 1200 is based on a Porsche GT2 model, but is modified to be made lighter. There are a series of carbon fiber elements, along side and rear windows that have been replaced by Macrolon items. There is also a new set of 19" wheels.
After 9ff added titanium connecting rods, 9ff cylinder head with bigger valves and ports, 9ff camshafts, and 130mm intercoolers, the twin-turbo engine now develops an impressive 1200 HP and 1100 NM of torque. The car can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and will hit an impressive 248 mph. The whole package is finished by a new titanium exhaust system that has adjustable valves for a quiet, sportier sound. The car is currently available for sale at a price of 219,000 euro (around $285,000).
UPDATE 12/13/2010: The monsieur’s over at OptionAuto were given the chance to take the 9ff GTurbo 1200 for a test run – lucky, lucky, lucky – and did they take the hammer down on this bad boy, documenting the whole escapade in a five-part video that you can find after the jump.
