TUNE IT! SAFE! (www.tune-it-safe.de) is the name of a new initiative started by
the German Federal Traffic Ministry, Association of German Automobile Tuners and
the Essen Motor Show.
TechArt supports the new campaign aimed at increasing awareness for safe and legal tuning with one of the world's fastest police cars. The Porsche 911 Carrera S has been completely modified by TechArt and reaches a top speed of some 186 mph (300 km/h) thanks to 370 bhp performance tuning.
In addition to sporting the official green police markings and the light bar on the roof the Porsche police car is also a prime example for professional automobile tuning. TechArt increases power output of the 3.8-liter flat six with the TA 097/S1 performance kit by 15 bhp. Thus equipped the silver and green coupe accelerates from rest to 62 mph in just 4.5 seconds and breaches the 300-km/h barrier.
To achieve even better directional stability and therefore active safety the Carrera S was fitted with a TechArt aerodynamic-enhancement kit that was tested extensively in the wind tunnel. It is joined by TechArt Formula 20-inch five-spoke wheels with 235/30 ZR20 and 305/25 ZR20 tires, and by the custom-calibrated TechArt Vario sport suspension with struts that are adjustable in height, bound and rebound.
In the interior an ergonomically shaped TechArt sport steering wheel with airbag ensures a safe handle on the performance.
