TechArt Carrera GT Aerodynamics

The TechArt designers have developed aerodynamically efficient custom-tailored body components for the Porsche Carrera GT made from exposed carbon fiber that serve as a visual contrast to the metallic-orange special paint. A new air outlet on the upper half of the front fascia and a one-piece spoiler lip on the lower half give the front of the two-seater Porsche Carrera GT an even more dynamic appearance. The low-reaching front spoiler reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds further and thus further optimizes directional stability.

TechArt has also developed a three-piece gurney flap that serves as the aerodynamic counterpart in the rear. The center piece of the separation edge extends together with the pop-up rear wing and in combination with the fixed spoiler edges on the left and right produces additional downforce on the Porsche Carrera GT rear axle.

TechArt tunes the Porsche Carrera GT engine

While the Porsche Carrera GT's suspension and tires remain untouched the peripherals of the 5.7-liter V10 engine are upgraded with a TechArt modified Porsche Carrera GT stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system and a modified intake system. Both benefit not only the engine sound that escapes through the two production tailpipes; the Porsche Carrera GT tuning also increase maximum power output from 612 hp / 450 kW to some 635 hp / 467 kW.

TechArt updates the Porsche Carrera GT interior

Further room for improvement of the Porsche Carrera GT lay in the cockpit. TechArt customized the interior with an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel with leather/carbon fiber rim, and a shifter made from exposed carbon fiber. Requests for even more exclusive and colorful fully leather interiors are answered by the TechArt upholstery shop.
