This wouldn’t be the first time anyone hears about a powerful tuning kit for the Porsche 997 Turbo . Misha Designs and TechArt are just two of the tuners that have gotten their hands on the Porsche, in terms of style anyway. While these two tuners were able to make the Turbo look pretty, German tuner, SpeedART, was able to get their hands under the hood to pump up the volume of the sports car’s power with the new "BTR-II 650 EVO" (Bi-Turbo Racer, 2. generation with 650 hp and Evolution-body kit), making it the worldwide strongest Porsche 997 Turbo and the only one with an enforced PDK-gearbox.
Speedart tacked on some extra get-up-and-go for the Porsche 997 Turbo by offering offering a modified motronic, bigger VTG-turbo chargers, a sport exhaust with sport cats, and twin tail pipes, plus sport headers/manifolds, sport air filter, and enlarged intercoolers. The result of this overhaul is 650 HP and 900 NM of torque taking this sports car from 0 to 124 mph in just over 9 seconds and enabling it to have a top speed of over 208 mph.
Don’t worry, the tuners added some aesthetic flair as well. The most obvious being Porsche’s Meteor Gray metallic paint job with delicately placed red accents throughout the exterior of the car. As far as actual pieces go, they improved the look of the 997 with an aerodynamic kit that includes a new designed front bumper with spoiler lip and gun-metal frames for more down force and better brake cooling (EVO-version). Side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a rear spoiler with a movable rear wing were also added. The car sits on 20" 3-piece screwed forged wheels.
Press release after the jump.
The latest speedART „BTR-II 650 EVO" (Bi-Turbo Racer, 2. generation with 650 hp and Evolution-body kit) is the worldwide strongest Porsche 997 Turbo with 650 hp and over 900Nm. Additional to the impressive power the BTR-II 650 EVO is the only Porsche with an enforced PDK-gearbox which is the qualification for an impeccable power transmission. These modifications are in particular the following conversions:
The power increase of 150 hp and 150 nm consists of a modified motronic to enlarge the power boost in combination with bigger VTG-turbo chargers, a sport exhaust with sport cats and twin tail pipes plus sport headers/manifolds, sport air filter and enlarged intercoolers for a better heat dissipation. The acceleration 0-200 km/h is just over 9 sec. and top speed over 335 km/h.
For power upgrades over 900 Nm and 650 hp an enforced PDK is required. The multi-discs in the gearbox are enforced (standard are 6 rings for inner and outer multi-disc-packet. The enforced version has 8 rings for each packet). So the enhanced surface of the rings is able to put over 30% more torque from the engine to the wheels which is required especially while using launch control starts and race track performance. Therewith the BTR-II 650 EVO becomes a unique experience because it had never given a Porsche who shifted faster and stronger.
The body kit "BTR-II EVO" consists of a new designed front bumper with spoiler lip and gun-metal frames for more down force and better brake cooling (EVO-version), side skirts, rear diffuser and a rear spoiler with movable rear wing for an improved aerodynamic and more down force.
