The New TechArt Magnum Based on the Latest Porsche Cayenne

With more than 500 produced units, the Magnum is the most successful model in the 20-year history of TechArt. At the Frankfurt International Auto Show IAA 2007, the new TechArt Magnum, based on the latest Porsche Cayenne, celebrates its world debut.

Like its predecessor, the new TechArt Magnum sets itself apart with a spectacular aerodynamic-enhancement package that fits all versions of the Porsche SUV. All body components are manufactured from PUR-RIM plastic in OEM quality.

The curved TechArt fender flares add 3 inches to the width of the Cayenne. The Magnum rocker panels provide a fluent transition between the wider wheel arches.

The new aprons for front and rear that replace their production counterparts were designed to correspond visually to the more pronounced contours of the wheel arches. The TechArt Magnum front apron lends the latest Cayenne generation an even more striking appearance. Its large air inlets feature elegantly styled slats and provide ample cooling air for radiators and front brakes. A total of four auxiliary headlights and daytime running lights improve active safety.

The TechArt Magnum rear apron with integrated diffuser reduces lift on the rear axle and provides the perfect backdrop for the TechArt stainless-steel sport exhaust system with two chrome tailpipes on either side.

The body conversion can be rounded out with moldings for front and rear lights, as well as with a new hood that features two air outlets that optimize heat balance in the engine bay.

The Magnum also features custom-tailored wheels and tires. The largest possible version features TechArt Formula II light-alloy wheels in size 10.5Jx22 in front and in size 11,5Jx22 in the rear. For optimal tires TechArt chose ContiCrossContact UHP tires in sizes 295/30 ZR22 and 335/25 ZR22, which are approved on the Cayenne for a top speed of 186 mph.

These tires also make the Magnum a prime candidate for the engine tuning of the Cayenne Turbo that is currently under development and in its most powerful incarnation will produce up to 620 bhp.

The air suspension of the Cayenne Turbo is modified with the TechArt sport module that lowers the ride height for enthusiastic on-road driving by 30 millimeters. The entire range of adjustment from the lowest ride height (loading level) to the highest (special off-road level) measures some 4.3 inches.

The TechArt Magnum repertoire also includes countless interior options. The range of products starts with exclusive accessories such as an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel and carbon-fiber applications for the cockpit, available in a number of different colors.

Requests for an even higher degree of customization can be fulfilled with exclusive TechArt fully leather interiors in any color and design imaginable.

The TechArt interior line de Sede of Switzerland, created in cooperation with the Swiss furniture manufacturer, represents an especially exclusive option. The high-quality de Sede leather skins are transformed by the company-own TechArt upholstery shop into meticulously finished upholstery for seats, door and side trim, dashboard, roof pillars and headliner.

Yet another specialty of the German customization specialists are state-of-the-art multimedia systems.
