German tuner offers a full tuning makeover including an aerodynamic kit and peformance boosting on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

German tuner Hamann will debut the Hamann Guardian at the Geneva auto show based on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

The extensive tuning job begins with a design-changing aerodynamic kit. That includes a front apron with large air inlets and integrated LED daytimers and fog lights, a lighweight carbon bonnet with a power dome slit for engine ventilation, and fender extensions and side skirts that widened the Cayenne by a 120 mm at the front axle and 160 mm at the back. At the rear is also a rear apron with integrated diffuser holding two massive centrally-mounted stainless-steel exhaust pipes - gaping at 120 mm in width each.

Power is boosted by means of a sport exhaust system, silencer, catalysts and air filter. All that hardware coupled with an ECU remap increases output on the 4.8 liter V8 twin-turbo unit to 550 PS (405 kW / 544 bhp) at 6,100 rpm with a torque rating of 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) between 2,300 and 4,600 rpm (series - 500 PS / 368 kW / 493 bhp). That makes for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 4.6 seconds for the Cayenne and a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).

Hamann furbishes the Cayenne with a ceramic sport brake system too and fits it with ultra-light forged rims, 11J x 23-inch, wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx tires sized 315/25R23.

Also for the ride is a sport suspension module for the Cayenne's air suspension that lowers the Hamann Guardian by 35 mm over the series model.

For the interior finish, Hamann fits a full leather upholstery with stitched embroideries for the dash and seats. An ergonomically refined steering wheel with airbag is also part of the cabin tuning with carbon trims added to the instrument panel and center console.
