Yesterday we brought you the first spy shots of the revised Porsche Cayenne . While Porsche is trying to update the performance SUV’s look, some guy asked our friends over in Russia, TopCar, to develop a tuning kit that makes the SUV look, shall we say, “interesting.”
While we may not particularly care for the Red Dragin motif, you still have to admire the perfection that TopCar consistently delivers.
As it name suggests, the new Cayenne Red Dragon combines a white exterior paint with numerous red accents on the wheels and body panels. The aerodynamic kit is made in carbon fiber and includes a new bonnet, new front fender extensions, new front spoiler bumper, new side skirts and a new rear spoiler.
For the interior, the model uses the same theme as the exterior with red and black diamond-tufted seats, red accents on the door panels, a red steering wheel, a red dashboard and a red center console. To complete the dragon part of the name, TopCar added an embroidered dragon on the seats.
We’re sure whoever commissioned TopCar was happy to pay big bucks for this custom work.

The current-generation Porsche Cayenne was unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The model received a new exterior and interior language, and it offers a hybrid powertrain for the first time. Also, when compared to the previous generation, it is about 400 pounds lighter.
The base version is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine with an output of 300 horsepower, while the S version gets a 4.8 liter V-8 with an output of 400 horsepower. For those customers that want more from their SUV, Porsche also offers a Turbo version that gets the same V-8 engine from the S version, but with the power increased to 500 horsepower.
The hybrid version combines a 333-horsepower combustion engine with a 47-horsepower electric motor. This version can be driven in all-electric form at speeds up to 40 mph.
In the U.S. market, prices for the Cayenne start at $49,600.
