SpeedART Porsche 997 Turbo


Updated on

The world renowned tuning company SpeedART has released a new custom program for the Porsche 997 Turbo called the BTR II 580. The name stands for Bi-Turbo-Racer, and is the second generation of Porsche tuning completed by SpeedART. This new project is based off the 2010 Porsche 977 Turbo that comes with a 3.8-liter engine and a PDK gearbox. Improvements under the hood increased the horsepower by 80 and brought the torque up by 120 Nm. This was accomplished with aftermarket parts such as a modified motronic sports exhaust system with 200 cell catalytic converters along with the standard ECU tuning.

These performance upgrades allowed the new bi-turbo racer Porsche car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in only 3.2 seconds, and reach a top speed of 325 km/h. The exterior received an exclusive aerodynamic kit to help with all the extra power under the hood. In the front is an optimized front lip spoiler for additional downforce while traveling at high speeds. Complementing the front lip are new side skirts, rear diffuser, roof spoiler, and rear wing spoiler.

An aftermarket fully adjustable sport suspension kit was also installed on the Porsche 997 Turbo to improve the agility and handling of the car. The new suspension includes the unique PASM function for easy adjustments, and SpeedART hooked it up with some stunning wheels. Catching your eyes are twin-spoke LSC forged rims (Light Spoke Competition) measuring 20×8.5 in the front, and 20×12 in the rear. Of course, high performance tires were added that measure up to 245/30/ZR20 in the front, and 325/25/ZR20 in the rear.  The interior also received some customizations such as a sport steering wheel, racing seats, and special leather or alcantara features with carbon fiber parts throughout.
