Hamann is coming to the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show locked, stocked, and ready to rock. The German tuning company is bringing a number of tuning projects to the world’s biggest auto show, one of which is the 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Guardian Evo.

Featuring an aerodynamic package that includes an extensive body kit, the Cayenne Turbo Guardian Evo is coming to Frankfurt dressed to the nines. A new front apron with large air intakes are two of the many new additions to the Porsche SUV, as are the new integrated fog lights and LED daytime running lights. The kit also carries wider wheel arches, which increases the width of the Cayenne by 120 and 160 mm in the front and back, respectively. There are also new side skirts, a roof spoiler, a rear apron with an integrated diffuser, and a new exhaust system with two enormous tail pipes right in the middle of the rear apron. Hamann also improved the SUV’s suspension system, allowing the ride height to be lowered by 335 mm. Inside, the Hamann dressed up the Guardian Evo with the works, including a full leather upholstery, a new steering wheel, and plenty of carbon fiber components on the center console and instrument panel of the Cayenne Turbo.

As for performance, Hamann spared no expense in tweaking the Cayenne Turbo’s capabilities, re-mapping the ECU and adding a sports silencer, sports catalysts, and a sports air filter. All the modifications result in the Cayenne Turbo boasting an increased output of 550 horsepower at 6,100 rpm and 568 lb/ft of torque from 2,300 rpm to 4,600 rpm, up from the standard model’s 500 horsepower output with a peak torque of 516 lb/ft. The improvements allow the Cayenne Guardian Evo to hit 0 to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds, as well as reach an improved top speed of 187 mph.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I’m so impressed with the engine specification of this Cayenne Turbo. Well, it’s really great on that specs. And it is truly so fitted for the too huge platform of this vehicle. smiley

With its V8 twin-turbo engine that can deliver 550 at 6,100 RPM, I bet it can really give a better and quite remarkable figure performance on it, and I noticed that the platform of it, is absolutely looking so striking and massive.

Nice Volkswagen race car. I like its big and bulky look of the car. Very sporty and exterior design wise.

It’s Volkswagen race car or SUV race car. I’m confused to the style of SUV and Volkswagen car. The color of the rims and the hood are good for the color white of the body of the car.

The black-and-white combination is very elegant look for a simple car, it gives a strong personality of a car. A Very nice and luxurious car with a fast speed and accuracy. Great one!

Great design. The rims are unique and the hood the car is black. Good combination of color white and black.

The front-end is way too busy but this would be a tough little road trip rig. Pretty cool sports-car like in an SUV Cayenne.
