TechArt revealed the all-new GTstreet R sportcar which is based on the 992 series 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S. Not only adding more power to it, the German tuner has given the 992 a custom bodykit making it look extravagant and aggressive.
According to TechArt, the added parts are not only for show. Tested on the wind tunnel, they significantly reduce the lift at the front axle (up to 45 percent at 140 km/h / 87 mph) while increasing downforce at the rear axle and optimizing airflow to the intercooler.
TechArt offers two different power upgrades for the GTstreet R, with the largest being a whopping 800 hp (597 kW) and 701 pound-feet (950 Newton-meters) of torque. This is done via upgraded turbochargers, upgraded exhaust, and a hefty tune to make it all work together. TechArt doesn’t talk about 0-60 or quarter-mile times, but the fully-upgraded GTstreet R can reach 217 mph flat out – 12 mph more than a standard Turbo S. If that’s a bit too scary, TechArt also offers a tamer package that boosts power to only 700 hp (522 kW).
At the front, there is a new cover for the air intakes, a more pronounced splitter, additional flaps on the sides, and a redesigned bonnet with inlets similar to those on the new 911 GT3. The car also gets fender and side sill extensions, as well as GT3 RS-like gills on the front fenders.
The signature element is definitely the big carbon fiber rear wing. Below, a large portion of the redesigned rear bumper is painted in black, matching the carbon fiber diffuser. The stainless-steel sport exhaust system has two large tailpipes and valve control so you don’t wake up the neighbors.
An integral part of the visual upgrade is TechArt GTstreet R 20-inch front and 21-inch rear Formula VI Race forged wheels with carbon fiber aero discs. According to the customer’s preference they can be fitted with either Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 or Pilot Sport 4S tires measuring 265/35 ZR20 at the front and 325/30 ZR21 at the back.
Inside there’s a healthy amount of Alcantara, leather, and carbon fiber with touches of color matching the exterior, retro-styled patterns, and GTstreet R logos. The all-new steering wheel is made of leather and Alcantara. The hand rests are also perforated in the checkered flag design. All of the multifunction steering controls are retained, but TechArt says all individual buttons and controls can be customized to the owner’s unique taste.
TechArt will build 87 units of the GTstreet R. The cost for the upgrade starts from €73,000 (equal to $86,843 at current exchange rates) before tax, plus the Porsche 911 Turbo or Turbo S donor car.
