• 2012 Porsche Cayenne Vantage 2 Carbon Edition by TopCar

Russian tuning company, TopCar, arguably has one of the most extensive programs for the Porsche Cayenne. But it’s one thing to have a tuning program like the Cayenne Vantage 2; it’s a completely different thing to have a special edition version for a tuning program.

That’s what TopCar is presenting with their latest piece of work, called the "Cayenne Vantage 2 Carbon Edition." Decked in a ridiculous aerodynamic kit that’s made completely out of carbon fiber, the Vantage 2 Carbon Edition comes with carbon fiber front and rear bumpers, fenders, door sills, a new carbon fiber bonnet, a new spoiler on the rear trunk, d-shaped exhaust pipes, and a new set of ultralight forged wheels sourced from ADV.1.

Under the hood, the Cayenne Vantage 2 Carbon Edition also gets the same tuning work done on its "non-special edition" brethren. Included in this program is a new software engine management system, new air filters, and a new sports exhaust system that bump up the output from the standard 500 horsepower all the way up to an impressive 780 horsepower.

The Porsche Cayenne Vantage 2 Carbon Edition will be presented at the Top Line 2011 show in Moscow, which will run from December 16 to 19, 2011.

UPDATE 04/16/12: Top Car’s Porsche Cayenne Vantage 2 Carbon Edition will be on display at the 2012 Top Marques Monaco so if you’re in the vicinity of Monte Carlo later this week, be sure to check it out along with the Panamera Stingray GTR 7/25 one-off model!

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 full bio

The addition of 280HP on its output from the twin-turbocharged engine is better than the other cars that didn’t totally upgrade their engines and performance.

@Maria_Nalocca I don’t think you’re right about saying its worse than the original model. This Vantage looks great, especially on the engine it uses—780HP twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

I disapprove of TopCar’s tuning; Cayenne Vantage’s quality has deteriorated.

Oh no, what has TopCar done to this? Yes, it is efficient. However, its design is downright unattractive.

The carbon feature is the only thing that makes it better than before. Its design got worse.

I think TopCar is next in line to Mansory when it comes to butchering cars. This looks worse than the original model.

The grille looks plain, and the paint job seems like to be cheaply done. They don’t complement the car itself at all.

I don’t like the front bumper of this car. For me, it is better if they had it on simple style. But the front hood made it looks like an elegant car.

The body paint that they use on this Cayenne Vantage definitely not looks good on this. However, I have to agree that it really looks awesome on its car lines and even on its engine specification.

Cayenne is more awesome now than before because on its impressive 780 horsepower! smiley Well, it will be so fun and exciting to drive on that speed! Anyway, I think they should use a lighter body paint on it.

Yeah! I didn’t also like its front grille, and it will surely look more impressive on a red or white body paint. Moreover, I am hoping that this new cayenne as well has an awesome interior. smiley

I just don’t like the front grille of this Cayenne, but I have to agree that this new model of them is still oozing with angst, and it will surely look more impressive if it is on a sleek body paint.

It was still oozing with angst on its platform and its car lines on its front hood only add an aggressive look on this. It’s a good thing as well that they maintain it to have a very efficient engine.
