The new Porsche Panamera has, without question, received more than its fair share of attention from tuners all over the world since it made its official debut late last year. And while this isn’t TechArt’s first go-round in tuning a Panamera, popular perception seems to think that they’re not getting tired of it anytime soon because they recently announced a new individualization study for the Panamera that will make an appearance at the Geneva Motor Show.
TechArt’s new tuning package is called ’Concept One’ and features a carrara white exterior package that’s fully manufactured from high-quality PU-RIM. The exterior package includes, among other things, a new bonnet with inwrought air outlets, new fenders and side skirts, trim strips and elegant trim frames in the windows, a rear apron with integrated air openings and matching diffuser, a height-adjustable rear spoiler and 22-inch TECHART Formula III forged light alloy wheels.
As for the interior, it comes in a leather finish with a cocoa and white color combination, leather applications on trim parts in cerbero, as well as manually processed decorative stitching in phosphor green. There is also a 3-spoke PDK sports steering wheel with shift paddles, a 10.2-inch ceiling monitor with integrated DVD player, a rear center console and two high-quality folding tables built into the front seats.
Suffice to say, TechArt didn’t seem to leave any stones unturned as far as their new ’Concept One’ tuning package is concerned and if anyone is interested to know more about it, you’ll only need to wait a few more days until the package officially breaks cover in Geneva.
Press release after the jump.
Individuality and personality, passion and perfection are concepts that substantially stand for TECHART. Yet TECHART is also defined by innovation and richness of ideas, by identification and instinct. At the 80th Motor-Show in Geneva, TECHART proves this once again by presenting the world premiere of the Concept One individualization study. Thomas Behringer, general manager of TECHART Automobildesign GmbH, says: "Concept One provides an exclusive outlook on our second individualization level for the Porsche Panamera model range, which is noticeably different from the first subtle program. The study is defined by concepts such as strength, individuality and self-consciousness, and clearly reflects our customers’ requirements for uniqueness and sportiness. The Motor-Show in Geneva is precisely the perfect platform for presenting the design concept to the world’s public."
In OE quality and fully manufactured from high-quality PU-RIM, the carrara white exterior package convinces owing to its massive and white characteristics. The front apron with integrated air inlets self-consciously emphasizes the design of the sporty 4-seater and also provides an improved air flow of the charge air intercoolers as well as improved brake cooling. A highlight is the distinct, extravagantly designed bonnet with inwrought air outlets. Powerful fenders and side skirts ensure a seamless transition among the wide wheel arches. Trim strips and elegant trim frames in the windows show the individualization down to the smallest detail typical of TECHART. The rear apron with integrated air openings and matching diffuser, together with the height-adjustable rear spoiler, rounds off the distinct exterior design. The double flow, black tail pipe of the TECHART stainless steel sports exhaust system also provide sporty accents in the striking rear of the vehicle. 22-inch TECHART Formula III forged light alloy wheels in exclusive dull platinum gray with Continental Sport Contact 3 tires fit seamlessly into the Porsche Panamera color combination and underline its self-conscious appearance.
A look under the bonnet also knows how to convince the study. The TECHART engine optic package with carbon fiber engine covering, TECHART logotype and flash red coating already makes the visitor to the trade fair stand feel the power of the Panamera Turbo – increased once again by TECHART with a power thrust of up to 150 hp.
Convincing peak performances
The overall design concept for the exterior with a 21-mm wider front axis and a 42-mm wider rear axis compared to the serial model is convincing owing to the TECHART-typical suitability for everyday use. The multifunctional TECHART daylight driving headlight system contributes essentially to the active safety of the driver by combining daylight headlights, parking lights and turn signal lights as an LED system unit in one common housing that seamlessly fits into the vehicle front design. The intensity of the lights adjusts automatically to the selected headlight circuit. Additionally, the headlight can also be dimmed for improving the effect of the turn signal lights, even while turning off.
TECHART sets standards in the interior
TECHART sets standards in the finishing of automobile interiors. As in the areas of technical revision, aerodynamic optimization and exterior design, the passion for perfection is here once again in the sports car that can make the individual ideas of the TECHART customers a reality. TECHART’s saddlery, well-known for valuable manufactured work, convinces in the study’s interior through its unique internal finishing. The TECHART full leather finish in the cocoa and white color combination, leather applications on trim parts in cerbero as well as manually processed decorative stitching in phosphor green masterly reflect the unique external appearance in the interior as well. White carpeting in the vehicle’s interior and trunk, the roof liner in alcantara and the white face with phosphor green digits complete the unusual individualization.
TECHART’s top-class interior options
For the first time in the Concept One Study, TECHART presents the 3-spoke PDK sports steering wheel with shift paddles. The driver can now shift one gear upwards with one hand and one gear downwards with the other one.
In addition, the study also shows some exclusive extras: A 10.2-inch ceiling monitor with integrated DVD player, a rear center console and two high-quality folding tables built into the front seats will also help pass the time in the back seat of the Panamera – whether for entertainment or work – this is left to the customer’s personal imagination – as is almost everything at TECHART.
