GTstreet By TechArt

GTstreetIf you are looking in the market for a vehicle that can take you faster then you could ever imagine then you are looking for the torrid tuners at Germany’s TechArt, whose stand at the 2007 Geneva motor show includes its brand-new TechArt GTstreet. It was based on the already screaming-fast 997-series 911 Turbo.

This sequel to the 2001 TechArt GTstreet offers similar modifications to amp up the scream factor even higher than can be mustered by the base Turbo’s meager 480-hp flat-six. Specifically, the twin-turbo 3.6-liter engine has been injected with an additional 150 horsepower for a total of 630 at 6800 rpm, and torque rises in similar measure to 605 pound-feet at 4500 rpm, from the standard Turbo’s 505 (with overboost).

As such, TechArt claims the GTstreet should hit 62 mph in a scant 3.2 seconds and 124 mph in just 10.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 214 mph. And it sure looks fast, too, with sexy black wheels, a lowered suspension, and a more aggressive body with contours honed in a wind tunnel, offering what TechArt calls “an optimal symbiosis of aerodynamic downforce, minimized drag, and striking design.” And lots of orange paint.
