The entry-level Techart Performance Kit TA 097/T1 takes power to 562bhp thanks to some ECU tweaks a new air filter. The 0-62mph time with this pack is cut to 3.2sec; the top speed is 201mph.

Kind of makes the Veyron look over engineered doesn't it?, or indeed over kill, who, where and why would you want to go that fast on public roads? the Porsche at least is an everyday (well,almost!) and it's not a silly price relatively speaking and dare i say it's all the performance you'll ever need unless you find yourself sharing a piece of road with a Veyron and there's not much chance of that is there?.

I really like it, amazing they've got the 0-60 down to 2.9. Been impressed by Techart in the past, they even mananged to make the 1st gen Cayenne look stunning
