Porsche Cayenne news - Gladiator ready - 2009
We’d hoped tuners would have stopped cocking about with Porsche Cayennes by now, but when it comes to Enco Exclusive’s bonkers Gladiator 700 GT Biturbo, we’re a bit glad they haven’t.
German tuner Enco has made Porsche’s eco-baiter even more nuts than the standard job, and if you can get past the visual, er, enhancements of gaudy two-tone paint, a lairy bodykit and huge 23in wheels, then you’ll discover quite how bonkers this Gladiator really is.
Thanks to a pair of bigger turbos, a more free-flowing exhaust, some new manifolds and a few other tweaks, Enco has cranked the power up to around 700bhp and 627lb ft of torque.
Which will get you to 62mph in 4.5 seconds and top out at 180mph.
This should be some wild ride, which is why Enco has done away with the regular seats and replaced all four of them with buckets out of the GT3 RS.
Now you may be worried about the stopping efficiency of such a beast which, even with all the carbon fibre, still weighs in at 2.5 tonnes.
But because of our favourite stat’ relating to the Gladiator, you need have no fear, as some rather large brakes have been fitted, especially at the front: 16.1in, 12-pot calipers. That’s big.
You’ll doubtless need some big money to get this too, so give Enco a shout. And let us know how mad it is when you take delivery.
