Tuning firm improves boosts oil-burner's power and torque

A 290bhp, 465lb ft Porsche Cayenne diesel has been launched by German tuning company TECHART.

The standard Porsche Cayenne 3.0-litre TD V6 produces 240bhp and 406lb ft of torque, but Techart has squeezed 50bhp more out of the engine and an extra 59lb ft of torque.

The firm has also modified the torque curve to make more than 370lb ft available from 1100rpm.

Extra kit inside includes a three-spoke Techart sports steering wheel and lightweight aluminium pedals.

The Techart Porsche Cayenne 3.0-litre TD V6 is supplied in the UK through Tech9 Motorsport, with prices starting at £53,000.
