The tuners at APS of Brackley zeroed in on the new facelifted 911 Turbo to provide it with an adrenalin boost. Its not that the car was ever in short supply of it. The 911 Turbo equipped with a six-cylinder, 3.8-liter boxer engine is able to make a quite impressive 493 bhp in its standard form.
But it seems the engineers at APS of Brackley aren’t quite satisfied with it. So they have worked upon the car’s ECU and added a sport air-filter along with stainless steel sports exhaust system combined with high flow catalytic converters. Twin 70mm twin-tailpipes too are included in the package and all of this has resulted in the power figure to go all the way up to 580 bhp that becomes available while the engine is revving at 6,500 rpm. Max torque has gone up to 800 Nm or 590 lb.ft at 3,500 rpm with more than 700 Nm (516 lb.ft) available at a quite low 2,700 to 5,500 rpm.
No performance figures are yet available though APS Sportec believes the reworked 911 Turbo can do the zero to 100km/h (62mph) sprint in just 3.1 seconds while top speed for the car is likely to be around the 317km/h or 197 mph mark.
The performance kit can be included in both the six speed manual or the PDK variants of the Porsche 911 Turbo that has gone on sale from November 2009 onwards and has been priced at £9400.00, which includes 17.5 per cent VAT.
Engine upgrades apart, the company has a whole host of Sportec components to choose from to be fitted in the latest 911 Turbo which includes forged alloy wheels, suspension, braking upgrades along with an array of cosmetic enhancements.
Meanwhile, APS of Brackley is the UK importer for the Swiss company Sportec.
