The Swiss tuning firm Sportec has just relased a new performance upgrade that turns the factory tuned Audi TT RS into a true super car competitor with the simple addition of a reprogrammed ECU. This simple modification can be performed without the need for the owner to even get their hands dirty and is one of the most affordable methods of increasing an automobile’s output from a HP per dollar ratio standpoint.
The Audi TT RS engine upgrade increases the output of the 2.5 Liter inline five cylinder TFSI engine up from a stock 335 HP all the way up to the 400 HP mark. The added boost allows the modified TT RS to go from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.2 seconds, down compared to the stock car’s 4.6 second run as well as removing the 155 MPH speed limiter.
A Sportec modified TT RS is good news for tuning enthusiasts and bad news for R8 owners, because if they bought one of the first versions of Audi’s mid engine super car because it takes them all of 4.4 seconds to reach 60 MPH, making the $100,000+ price tag seem a little bit inflated. However the best news comes in the form of hope for the future Audi RS3 that is supposed to be powered by the same 2.5 Liter TFSI motor, meaning that a 400 HP turbocharged all wheel drive hatchback may not be that hard to find.
The Porsche tuners, Sportec, showed the world their SPR1 M at the Geneva Motor Show back in March, but today is time to meet the latest addition to the Sportec family of turbocharged German sports car that goes above and beyond the normal offering from Stuttgart. The SPR1 T80 based on a Porsche 911 Turbo is powered by a 3.6 Liter 6 cylinder boxer engine that delivers an astounding 858 HP, this is enough power to launch the modified 911 from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.0 seconds, hit 300 km/h (186 MPH) in 18.9 seconds. The T80 has been clocked at the Nardo test track in Italy at a top speed of 236 MPH.
Just like the SPR1 M, the T80’s exterior has been rounded out, smoothed and aerodynamically tuned with a host of lightweight carbon fiber pieces; like the flat under floor and carbon Kevlar body panels. The SPR1 features racecar equipment like an active suspension and F1 style ceramic brake discs. These technologies allow the SPR1 to be lighter, safer and more capable than other cars in its class. The 200 MPH+ Porsche is also available with exclusive SPORTEC styling and interior touches like the and leather/alcantara upholstery. On the outside the SPR1 T80 wears a set of lightweight 20 inch forged alloy wheels, a carbon fiber rear wing to let serve as much form as they do function.
The Swiss tuners at Sportec have released the SP750 based on the Porsche 911 GT2. The GT2 has received new turbochargers, titanium connecting rods, sport profile camshafts, reprogrammed ECU, larger intercooler and new clutch. All these modification bumped output up by 220 HP to generate a maximum of 750 HP. The vehicle can accelerate to 60 MPH (100 km/h) in only 3.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 217 MPH (350 km/h).
THe tuner Sportec dropped this one on us in Geneva. It’s the SPR1 M, an extremely modified version of the 997 Porsche Turbo. The M will be an extremely exclusive model with only 10 vehicles planned for production. Power has been increased to 858 HP and weight has been drastically reduced thanks to a plethora of carbon fiber. Expect the Porsche to go from 0-60 MPH (0-100 km/hr) in under 3 seconds.
Like all classics the Volkswagen Scirocco will never get old, most recently Swiss tuners Sportec have devised a system for upgrading the next generation Scirocco. They are doing this through performance upgrades, the addition of a tuned suspension and a little bit of style.
For the Scirocco that comes equiped with a 200 HP 2.0- liter engine performance upgrades are available from 240 HP up to 350 HP. This is achieved with upgraded electronics, a stainless steel exhaust system, the addition of a Sportec turbocharger, an upgraded intercooler and a modified fuel delivery system. Included in the drivetrain is differential locker by Sportec, this unit will help the Volkswagen to get the power to the ground evenly and improve performance in spirited driving. The Sportec springs lower the new Scirocco by 35 mm and significantly improve the car’s handling. The springs were also designed to work in harmony with the electronically adjustable shock-absorbers.
The Sportec SC 350 is not just a high-performance parts bin, but a well rounded performance machine. Highlighting the car’s appearance are a set of beautiful lightweight 20 inch Sportec Mono/10 alloys wrapped in 245/30 tires. Under the hood a carbonfiber engine cover adds some show to the car’s go, and on the inside passengers can enjoy special floormats made of soft velour and even more carbonfiber bits sporting the Sportec logo.
Sportec usually works on Porsches, but this time it set its sights on a product from the Stuttgart company’s latest purchase, the Volkswagen Scirocco. Dubbed the SC240, this Scirocco comes with a 240 hp engine. The upgrade happens from an ECU remapping and a new sport exhaust system. This is impressive considering the 2.0-liter model makes 197 hp from the factory.
Sportec has given us just another reason to lust after this VW we can’t get our hands on here.
Even though many tuners released a sport package for the Audi RS6 Avant, this didn’t stop Sportec in developing its own sport Stage 1 performance kit for the same car. The new package features a reprogrammed ECU which ads 70HP to the car’s 5.0L bi-turbocharged V10 reaching to 650hP at 6,300rpm. With the new kit aboard the RS6 is now capable of reaching 160 mph in under 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 190 mph. There is also available a lowering kit and a set of 20 or 22-inch lightweight alloy wheels.
As the title says, the new Sportec SP750 is based on the 911 GT2 (997) and is powered by an improved version of the 3.6-liter bi-turbo engine capable to develop 750 hp. In order to obtain the 220 hp improvement the tuner had to modify the turbochargers and titanium con rods, reprogram the ECU and the charge-air intercoolers. With these, the car can hit 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, that’s a half-second improvement. Top speed is raised to a claimed over 218 mph.
Sportec also offers a new set of 20 inch alloy wheels wrapped in 245/30 ZR20 tires up front and 325/25 ZR20 at the rear. At the interior the customers can buy new aluminium pedals, floor mats and alcantara leather accessories.
Sportec is ready to present its new masterpiece inspired from the famous Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet. There some stunning changes brought to the new Turbo Cabrio, but the most important is a special sport-exhaust system together with a Sportec turbocharger. The system is combined with high-performance catalysts and increased air flow to the powertrain.
Due to all this combinations the new Sportec SP600 promises a power output of 600hp, with 765Nm of torque and the performance of reaching 100 km/h in no more than 3.3seconds, 10.6 to reach 200km/h and a top speed of 338km/h. With regards to the body kit, there are mostly optional things so you can choose to keep a low profile on the streets.
For those who want to make the difference on the street with their new SP600 there are many choices available like custom 20” rims, side skirts, 3- part rear apron, a front spoiler and a large carbon rear wing. The Sportec collection includes also some other intresting models like the base model Sportec SP530 and the top of the line SP680.
