Techart presents new Formula wheels

One of the biggest problems with the aesthetics of factory wheels is that more often than not, they don’t show off the vehicles brakes. The Porsche tuners at TECHART have a solution for this problem. They have just released their classic TECHART Formula rim in 21 inch and 23 inch diameters. The long and slender spokes do a great job of filling the wheel arches while at the same time showcasing the cars calipers. While the two-piece Formula II wheels eliminate having to drive around with curbed rims ever again.

TECHART ’s latest creation for Geneva, is a showcase for all the tuners have to offer. The Magnum is based on a Cayenne Turbo S and benefits from a massaged exterior and a refined interior.

Few months ago the Techart GTstreet based on the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet was unveiled at the Chicago Motor Show. The car featured 630 hp and was capable to achieve a top speed of 345 km/h. Well, it seems that those performances weren’t enough for the German tuning company and in order to solve this problem Techart unveiled another version of the GTstreet called RS which is based on the Porsche GT2.

The vehicle features a 700 hp engine and a total torque of 860 Nm. For better stability the tuner used a new Bilstein suspension kit which with the are Michelin Sport Cup Plus tyres deliver a better stability at very high speeds. Some ”minor” details would be the sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and the astonishing price: € 330 000.

When you are a person like Lewis Hamilton and you are used driving F1 cars, an usual road car might become very boring for you. So, not even a sports car like a Porsche can satisfy you. Thanks God for tuners in this case! Especially tuners like TechArt!

Lewis was spotted recently in Los Angeles driving a Techart Porsche 997 . The car features new front spoiler which harmonizes perfectly with the factory-made front and reduces lifting force at the front axle, TECHART coil-over suspensions, performance springs, engine power enhancement, modified power train, high peformance brakes, sport exhaust systems and tailpipes as well as the remarkable new 12 x 20 inch Formula wheel.
