Porsche 911 Turbo Lime Gold by Porsche Exclusive

–>

If exclusivity is your fancy, then a 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo might suit your needs. But if that level of exclusivity isn’t exclusive enough, then the kind folks at Porsche have an answer: Porsche Exclusive.

That’s right, contact Porsche and for the right price, they’ll build your sports car almost any way you like it through their in-house customizing division. Case in point, this 2014 911 Turbo painted in a unique shade dubbed Lime Gold Metallic. The paint, however is only the starting point with this car. Blacked-out bi-xenon headlights and clear taillights, along with a deeper tint on the windows help move this 911 further away from normalcy.

Inside the story is much the same. The owner wanted everything finished in a deep chocolate brown contrasted by seats finished in the same Lime Gold Metallic hue the exterior is treated to. Talk about melting in your mouth…

Porsche will happily take your custom order with the help of two U.S. salesmen – one on each coast – who’s sole job is helping Porschephiles make their German sports car or SUV a personalized statement of their individualized taste.

Mechanically, this 911 Turbo is bone stock. Its 3.8-liter, twin-turbo flat-six still produces a monstrous 520 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque sent to all four wheels. Zero to 60 mph times are laughably quick at 3.2 second, while the quarter-mile will likely scare you as the 3,500-pound car rockets past the line in a hair’s breath over 10 seconds. Phenomenal.

Do you remember the 997 Turbo BTR-II 650 EVO SpeedArt unveiled back n 2010? Today the same tuner turned its attention to the BTR-II package one more time and came up with a new version. This time around, the kit is called BTR-II 600 EVO Ultra Edition and unfortunately, it is a little bit less powerful than the first edition, but one benefit it that the tuner applied the kit to a convertible model.

This tuning kit pushes the Porsche’s engine to 600 horsepower – 50 horsepower less than the BTR-II 650 EVO model. To achieve this output level, the tuner installed its Powerkit III system, a sports exhaust system with a sound switch, 200-cell sports catalytic converter and 84 mm tailpipes. Peak torque was also increased to 590 pound-feet. This represents a significant increase over the base 500 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque delivered by the 997 Turbo.

Next to the extra power, the BTR-II 600 EVO Ultra Edition received an adjustable sport suspension with PASM and air lift for more ground clearance and a meaner appearance.

Chris Harris has shot another incredible video: he put a Porsche 911 GT2 RS and a Ducati 1199 Panigale in a drag race. A similar video was shot during the summer and the Porsche was actually destroyed. This second video was made to provide the Porsche with an opportunity to exact its revenge.

They went to a 2 mile runway to see what happens when you let a GT2 RS stretch beyond 150 mph, but the question is, what happened? Check out the video for the answer!

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS delivers an impressive 620 HP and sprints from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds. The Ducati 1199 Paningale, on the other hand, delivers a total of 195 HP, leaving the RS with a huge advantage. Will it help?

No bikers or drivers were hurt in the making of this film.
