370bhp for modded Cayman
3 April 2006

If you're finding the regular Cayman S a little ordinary, then it might be worth giving German tuner TechArt a call - it has just launched a string of modifications that can take the car up to a cool 370bhp.

Three upgrades are available - the first provides a modest increast of 15bhp to 310bhp, the second (involving a switch from 3.4-litre to 3.6) boosts grunt up to 340bhp, and the top spec sees the same engine bored out to 3.8 litres (as well as new pistons and crankshaft) to provide 370bhp.

TechArt can also upgrade the car's suspension to cope with its extra performance, and the almost-compulsory body kit is also available, including a new front grille and spoilers.

The Cayman S is already a favourite at Autocar - it came out on top against stiff competition in our recent B-road Baftas supplement.

Our Verdict

Volkswagen Eos

The Volkswagen Eos has much cachet and is pleasant and predictable to drive, but is feeling a little bit long-in-the-tooth

    On our first chance to get the facelifted Nissan X-Trail on UK roads, the petrol proves a viable alternative, although for outright pulling power the 2.0 dCi is the better bet
  • Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2.2d 210
    First Drive
    21 September 2017
    Most powerful diesel version of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is swift and more frugal than its closest rivals, but makes less sense than the range-topping petrol version
