Porsche Cayenne Magnum by Techart: 560 HP

The TECHART Magnum is a high-performance luxury SUV based on the Porsche Cayenne. As with other TECHART products, the Magnum has added features such as a bodykit, interior refitment, and engine and suspension upgrades.

To the standard Porsche Cayenne turbo, TechArt has added a radical bodykit made of PUR-RIM plastic, which includes new high-downforce air dams, side skirts, and aero hood. Also added are 22 inch (556 mm) TechArt Formula II alloy wheels and ContiCrossContact UHP tires, and interior trim of the customer’s choice (with the “de Sede of Switzerland” being the highest trim level available, built in cooperation with the furniture manufacturer of the same name).

The most significant changes, however, are in the engine and suspension. The stock 4.5L (274.6 cu in) V8 turbo has been modified with larger turbochargers, stainless steel exhaust, and an upgraded ECU chip, bringing output to 600 horsepower (447 kW) and 645 lb⋅ft (875 N⋅m) of torque, both at 3440 rpm.

The Magnum is also lowered up to 30 millimetres (1.2 in) with adjustable performance air-ride suspension, which greatly aids handling for the heavy vehicle. With the full set of upgrades, the Magnum costs about $204,000 USD; Premier League defender Micah Richards who plays for Manchester City had one imported to the UK.
