Techart GTStreet RS news — The real widow maker - 2008

Porsche’s 911 GT2 was famously nicknamed
‘the widow maker’. The latest version is the fastest, most powerful 911 ever
made. Thing is, Porsche-tuner Techart didn’t think it was fast enough.

So, thanks to modified turbochargers, enlarged
carbon inlet pipes, new intercoolers, a revised exhaust, headers and sports air
filter the Techart GTStreet RS produces 160bhp more than the standard car. A
full bodykit is also part of the pack, including an aero-pack that produces
10kgs of downforce at 88mph.

Performance is OK, if you like that kind
of thing. 0-60mph comes up in just under 3.3 seconds while the GTStreet RS tops
out at a reasonable 223mph.

This kind of
excess can only be applauded, even if at £275,000 the GTStreet RS costs £140,000
more than the standard GT2.
