Cam Shaft has decided to celebrate the 911's 50th anniversary by applying a Gulf livery on a 997 Turbo.
The light blue / orange scheme is available at a steep 2,800 EUR and for an extra 700 EUR it can be applied on all visible edges and door sills. Aside from the Gulf livery, this particular 911 (997) Turbo has been modified by German tuner 9ff who installed a new exhaust, bigger intercooler, fuel pressure regulator, air filter and also fiddled with the electronics. Output of the engine has been increased from 500 bhp (368 kW) to 641 bhp (478 kW), while torque is limited to 800 Nm (590 lb-ft).
Compared to the standard model, this modified version weighs 65 kg (143 lbs) less. Other changes include a new set of OZ Ultraleggera alloy wheels, a height-adjustable Bilstein suspension kit and bucket seats for the interior cabin.
As a result of the tweaks, the Porsche 997 Turbo will run the 62 mph (100 km/h) to 124 mph (200 km/h) sprint in 6 seconds, while 62 mph to 186 mph (300 km/h) takes 20.3 seconds. Top speed should be beyond the 194 mph (312 km/h) mark of the standard model.
