TechArt has tuned up just about every Porsche model it can get its hands on and now they are headed to the Geneva Motor Show with their new TA 058/T1 power kit as part of their Magnum program. This kit will be launched in the new generation Porsche Cayenne Turbo and will bump up the crossover’s power to a total of 560 hp and 780 NM of torque. As a result, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is now made in 4.4 seconds, from 0 to 124 mph will be in 15.8 seconds, and the top speed halts at 178 mph.
In order to obtain this impressive engine update, TechArt is also offering an intelligent electronic power management and a TECHTRONIC engine management. The exterior comes with the usual Magnum program updates, including a front apron with two large air intakes and integrated TechArt daytime running lights, a TechArt Aero engine hood outfitted in carbon fiber with integrated air outlets, new side skirts, and elegant trims on all four doors. There is also a TechArt three-part tail light trim with an integrated spoiler shape in combination with the roof spoiler and a new exhaust system with sport tailpipes.
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo by TechArt does a number on the one provided by Merdad, another tuning firm. That kit only worked on the vehicle’s exterior and left the engine completely untouched. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to know that adding more power to the car gets our vote almost instantaneously, but the fact that TechArt’s Cayenne also gets some nice exterior mods definitely lands them in our number one spot.
