The Swiss tuning firm Sportec has released a new package for the Porsche Cayenne II Turbo called the SP580. First, the engine customizations consist of an ECU reprogramming to increase the 4.8-liter V8 turbo engine to 580 PS and 700 Nm of torque. At the track, the results show a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of 4.4 seconds, while the top speed was improved to 285 km/h. The turbo Porsche Cayenne is now able to handle these speeds with beefed up 6-piston calipers up front, 4-piston calipers at the rear, and new vented brake discs.
The Sportec tuning firm released the SPR1 FL based on the current 997 Porsche 911 Turbo with a facelift. It is the successor to the SPR1 R, featuring a new semi-sequential gearbox, LED taillights, rear bumper, and side mirrors. Performance numbers stayed relatively the same, however are still an impressive 858 PS and 880 Nm of torque. The new FL in the name comes from a Smooth Flow intake manifold holding two injectors per chamber. Other tuning performed is the addition of a carbon ram air intake, two hybrid turbos, and a performance intercooler.
The UK tuner APS partnered up with the Swiss aftermarket expert Sportec to release an all new package for the twin turbo 2010 Audi RS6. Packing a 5.0-liter V10 under the hood, the exclusive Audi delivers 572 hp and 479 lb ft of torque to the drivetrain. The build for this RS6 wasn’t that big of a challenge for the tuning companies however, and they’ve developed two stages of enhancements. For the first kit, stage one is suitable for both the Audi RS6 and Audi Avant variants, consisting of an ECU remapping. After the tuning was performed, the V10 engine now produces 650 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 740 Nm of torque between 2,500-4,000 rpm.
The Swiss tuners at Sportec have released a new upgrade package for the Porsche Panamera turbo called the SP560. Customizing the four door luxury sports car was quite a task, and now possesses a sportier stance, increased performance numbers, and an enhanced visual appeal. The most important tweaks to the Porsche Panamera were under the hood where the biturbo V8 was modified to produce 552 hp and 790 Nm of torque. After the engine tuning, the Sportec Porsche Panamera SP560 is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds, with an overall top speed of 315 km/h.
Here is the latest work from Sportec, and with all the car tuning modifications performed on the Audi S4 Avant, the results are not very impressive. Sportec was able to increase the horsepower by 92 with final numbers at 425 hp from the stock 333 hp. However, with that much of an increase in horsepower, at the track the Audi S4 Avant was only able to increase its 0-62 mph time by 0.1 second. That is surprisingly less than expected from Sportec after the large power increase, but they also worked on the exterior to give it an aggressive look for a station wagon. They added 19 or 20 inch wheels and lowered the car by 30 mm with stiffer aftermarket springs. An upgraded brake kit was installed and Sportec claims that the extra power improves everyday driving and saves fuel consumption compared to the Audi 4.2 liter V8 available in other models. Similar to other Sportec tuning packages, the parts and modification available for the Audi S4 Avant can be purchased individually and customized for the buyers needs.
The new SP550 Porsche 997 Turbo was one of the nicest premieres from Sportec at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The guys from Sportec installed two special turbochargers and a new sport exhaust system with sound baffle system and high capacity catalytics to improve this car’s performances. They also added a special air filter with an optimised flow rate which will take care of this car’s demand of intake air. The result is an great engine which could deliver 550 HP and a gigantic torque of 705 Nm at 4,030 rpm. The car has really low CO2 emissions and it could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 11 seconds and it could reach a top speed of 331 km/h. Customers could order an improved body kit with better aerodynamics, a new front spoiler, side skirts, a 3 part rear apron and a GT-style rear wing.
