2011 TechArt GrandGT based on Porsche Panamera
(from TechArt Press
Release) The TECHART GrandGT based on the Porsche Panamera -
World Premiere in Zürich
Exceptional Character – Visible and Invisible
Original TECHART programs have always stood for highest quality. This fundamental principle has been incorporated in TECHART’s new exterior package for the Panamera without any compromises. The consistent and intelligent use of selected high-tech materials and a unique style of design ensure that the TECHART GrandGT leverages its exceptional character.
Hidden Qualities: The Material
GT – uniquely sporty, which is embodied by the program not only in design. The GrandGT internalizes it as well. The exterior package consists of a fiber-reinforced composite based on carbon, glass-fiber-reinforced plastic and polyurethane RIM components. These materials are primarily used in motor sports and are distinguished by their extraordinary product characteristics. The exterior components of the TECHART GrandGT program are remarkable, among other things, thanks to an impressive dimensional stability, great strength and low intrinsic weight.
Impressive Appearance: The Design
The TECHART GrandGT
favors a spectacular performance. The TECHART-typical exterior
design catches the eye of onlookers immediately. The powerful front
bumper with integrated splitter and large ventilation intakes, for
an improved supply of fresh air to the intercooler and an optimum
cooling of the brake system, flawlessly underlines the dynamic
contours. TECHART-typical: the sporty four-seater’s suitability for
everyday use. The multifunctional daytime running lights that are
integrated in the front bumper give the Panamera not only a
distinctive appearance. It combines daytime running lights, position
lights, parking lights and turn signals as LED system unit in a
common housing and integrates seamlessly in the design of the
Panamera’s front. An additional design highlight is the TECHART Aero
engine hood that is constructed of high-quality carbon fibers, with
integrated air outlets for an optimized regulation of the heat
balance in the engine compartment and which impressively completes
the GrandGT program for the Panamera’s front end.
Exceptional Sportiness: The Performance
Taking a look under the
Aero-engine hood, the GrandGT is still impressive. The TECHART
Engine styling package consisting of carbon fiber cylinder-head
covers with an embossed TECHART logotype as well as accentuating
highlights in flash red is demonstrating the power of the car
already in standstill. The TECHART powerkit TA 070/T1 boosts the
power output oft the 4.8 l twin-turbo engine from 368 kW to 426 kW.
The generated torque increases from 700 Nm to powerful 830 Nm.
Pushing the standard sport button the Panamera has a significant
increase of performance and driving dynamics. The TECHART engine
management TECHTRONIC comes up with a number of impressive product
features. The intelligent electronic power management convinces with
quick and easy installation as well as maintaining the electronic
engine protection features and the vehicle diagnostics and
servicing. Like every factory-new TECHART product, the high quality
standard of the TECHART powerkit is backed by a two-year limited
warranty. Furthermore TECHART grants an additional warranty on
damages at engine or gearbox if caused by the TECHART powerkit.
Unique Comfort – The Interior
The passion for
perfection and the use of high-quality materials form the focal
point of interior individualization of the TECHART GrandGT based on
the Porsche Panamera. TECHART interiors are distinguished by
exceptional quality. Ranging from setting fine accents such as
decorative stitching in custom colour or parts in fine wood trim
through to unique interior packages refined in all details, care and
precision in the workmanship provided by the TECHART in-house
manufactory are unique.
