First up is the Sportec SPR1 M, a 911 Turbo-based machine thatís been rebuilt from the ground-up using carbon fibre wherever possible to maximise the power-to-weight ratio. Coupled to an engine upgrade thatís said to provide 858hp and 880Nm of torque, the performance is definitely going to be explosive. Sportecís 800hp SPR1 has allegedly already been clocked doing 0-100kmh in 3 secs, 0-200kmh in 8.6 secs and 0-300kmh in 18.9 secs, so this lighter and more powerful ĎMí version should break the 3 sec mark to 100kmh. Sportec aims to convert just 10 examples for customers this year, and will present its new model at the Geneva show this week.
The vision in yellow hails from the US, the home of Switzer Performance Innovations. Known henceforth as the L4 700/750 Tiptronic, the package takes a standard 911 Turbo and adds new management software, uprated variable-turbine-geometry turbochargers with matched intercoolers and an all-new exhaust system.
SPI does claim a 0-60mph time of 2.5secs and a top speed over 200mph for its car however, which is apparently a pussycat to drive compared to the 1000bhp version SPI also offers to owners bored with their standard 997s.
