The speedART BTR II 580: Bi-Turbo-Racer, second generation, five hundred and eighty horsepower.
After the release of Porsche’s second generation 997 Turbo it was only a matter of time before German based tuning company speedART rolled out an in-your-face tuning program for the legendary sportscar. Increasing power in the new Direct Injection 3.8-liter flat six is a revised engine management system to increase boost and a volume controlled sport exhaust with 200-cell sport catalytic converters. The result is a meaty 580 hp, thrusting the car to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds.
The BTR II 580 takes on similar design cues as the outlandish Porsche GT3 RS, ensuring instant recognition. The body kit features a new front spoiler that optimizes airflow to the brakes and increases downforce, as well as new side skirts, rear diffuser, subtle rooftop spoiler, and a larger rear spoiler wing. The kit is painted in a bi-color and available with eye-catching stickers.
A new adjustable sport suspension creates a more dynamic ride and is available in several variations including street, sport, or race sport. Modular twin spoke LSC Forged wheels dramatically set off the appearance of the speedART BTR II 580, and measure 20×8.5 with 245/30 ZR20 tires at the front, and 20×12 with 325/25 ZR20 tires at the rear. The LSC Forged wheels are available in numerous colors for the rim and center star to match the BTR’s color scheme.
A number of sporty interior modifications are available for the speedART BTR II 580. Available for all models is a sport steering wheel with optional F1 shift paddles for the PDK transmission. Sports seats can be optioned with an alcantara, carbon, or specially designed shell. Leather and alcantara trim along with carbon parts in different colors can be ordered to customize the interior.
The complete speedART BTR II 580 power, body, wheel, and suspension package is available for 21,450 Euros, and can be ordered separately along with the custom interior pieces. A high-powered VTG-turbocharger kit is in preparation and is set to make 650 hp.
