German Tuner, TECHART have announced their "Selective" edition of the GrandGT, their tuned model of the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo. The car will sit alongside their "Supreme" edition, and is said to be the sportier of the two models.
Firstly, TECHART have made the design of the "Selective" edition to be very striking. The edition has new carbon fibre elements, with a new hood, mirrors and rear panel, along with carbon coated front and rear aprons, and rear diffuser to give it a more sporty look. The exterior paint is a mix of gloss carbon fibre, matte black paint and gloss Riviera Blue highlights. The car also sits on TECHART's 22" Formula V alloy wheels, with matching paintwork.
Inside, the 2 colour theme continues on the interior. Riviera blue surrounds the outsides of the seats and the top of the dashboard, whilst the roof liner, lower dashboard and inner parts of the seats are all filled with black Alcantara.
A TECHART model wouldn't be complete without a power upgrade, and the "Selective" edition is no exception. The Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo has had it's power increased from 550BHP to 640BHP, using TECHART's TECHTRONIC Powerkit. Torque has been increase from 770NM to 900NM. The Porsche's 0-60MPH time has been improved to 3.4 seconds.
