Tuning firm improves boosts oil-burner's power and torque
9 July 2009

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.

Fuel economy and CO2 emissions are unchanged, while the standard car’s 0-60mph time of 8.3sec is cut to 7.7sec.

Techart's exterior styling changes include 21-inch alloy wheels fitted with Michelin Diamaris 4X4 XL 295/35 R21 tyres, twin double oval exhaust pipes and a new aerodynamic package.

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.
