Hot news from Techart tonight about their new Techart Magnum. In Geneva they will present a new Magnum based on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. To cut straight to the point: The performance is lifted to an output of 680 hp. Good for some impressive results: from 0 to 100 in 4.2 seconds and from 0 to 200 in 14.5 seconds with a maximum speed of 308 km/h.
Compared to the last model Magnum that’s an increase of 60 hp. To match this performance Techart created a new sporty body and added new 23″ wheels from their Techart Formula series. The new Techart Magnum also boost the day driving lights system that consists of a range of LEDs that give the car a unique appearance. The most striking characteristic of the Techart Magnum for us has always been the sound, again Techart used two double-flow exhaust pipes of stainless steel that will guarantee a satisfying sound.
The interior is made by the swiss company de Sede and includes air conditioned seats (something we can appreciate during hot summer days in Southern Europe).
PRESS RELEASE: TECHART Magnum
Made to perfection
Technology, quality and design form the cornerstones of over 20 years of history for the renowned car enhancement company TECHART Automobildesign from Leonberg-Höfingen. At the Geneva Auto-Salon 2009, TECHART is presenting the new generation of the Magnum, based on the Cayenne Turbo S, complete with increased performance and uncompromising comfort.
The performance package T2.2 increases the overall engine output to 680 hp (500 kW). The maximum torque increases to 900 Nm at 4.200 rpm. This produces some impressive results: from 0 to 100 in 4.2 seconds. From 0 to 200 in 14.5 seconds. The maximum speed of the vehicle is 308 km/h.
The Magnum exterior
Made entirely from high quality PUR-RIM material of original equipment manufacturer quality. The TECHART Magnum front apron confidently and powerfully emphasises the lines of this sports vehicle. Magnum fenders and sill panels create a fluid transition between the broad wheel arches. The air inlets supply the radiator and front brakes with optimal fresh air. The TECHART Magnum rear apron comes with an integrated diffuser. The two double-flow exhaust pipes of the TECHART stainless steel sports exhaust add a sporty touch to the striking rear of the vehicle. For sporty street use, the TECHART Sport air suspension module lowers the car body by 30 mm. The dynamic appearance is rounded off by the tyres: TECHART Formula I and Formula II alloy wheel rims in a classic design from 20 to 23 inches.
The day driving light system
The multi-functional TECHART day driving light system gives the Magnum an unmistakeable external appearance. The LED system consists of a combination of day driving lighting, side lighting, parking lighting and indicator lights. The automatic adaptation of the light strength to the selected driving light setting and the dimming of the day driving light when the vehicle is turning to ensure that the indicator lights stand
out are typical features of the system. The LED technology is also characterised by its increased life span and energy saving features.
