Sportec RS700: Noble Power Limousine
Not only the wishes of Porsche Drivers are fulfilled at Sportec from Höri – also Audi Driver can help themselves out of the program of the this noble high-tech forge. Sportec offers from now on a complete refining program for Audi RS6.
The main point consists in the increased performance of the 5.0 litre V10 Biturbo aggregate. For that purpose the Swiss specialists exchange the original catalysts by high-performance catalysts with higher flow rate.
As an option the originally installed exhaust system can be substituted by a Sportec high-performance exhaust system with four ø76mm tail pipes and sportive sound. Hereafter the new components of the vehicle are tuned in the Sportec 4-wheel test rig. In combination with the new programming of the engine control unit the RS6 reaches a maximum output of more than 700 HP. The torque increases up to fulminate 800 NM. As a result the 4-wheel limousine sprints to tempo 100 in 4.0 seconds, 200 km/h are achieved after only 12.0 seconds and then reaches the electronically regulated maximum speed of more than 310 km/h.
In order to keep so much power safely on the ground, Sportec offers a lowering set which lowers the body by 30 millimetres perfectly harmonized with the electronic chassis.
This breathtaking demonstration of engine force is transferred to the 265/30 tyres which are mounted on special light 22 inches Sportec Mono/10 rims. Beside this, the design of the Mono/10 lets the RS6 appear even more sporty – and gives to the overall optics of the limousine more easiness which is complemented by the Carbon front spoiler lip and the Carbon rear diffuser.
Sportec impresses with noble aluminium accessories for the interior. This is accented in form of aluminium pedal sets and aluminium footrests.
Sportec, it’s a gas: SP 550 also available in mean&clean version
With a performance of more than 550hp, the SP 550mc goes out hunting in the territory of its fellow super cars. Thanks to Sportec’s sporty understatement, the 997 Turbo has become nothing less than a cheetah in a tailored suit – with significantly reduced CO2 emissions. In spite of the new CO2-reduced natural gas technology, the turbo performance could be considerably improved. Consequently, also the mean&clean version of the SP 550 delivers breathtaking performance and torque values.
The ingredients for this exclusive Swiss high-precision engine are, among other things, two special Sportec turbochargers as well as a Sportec sports exhaust system with sound baffle system and high-capacity catalysts. A special filter with an optimised flow rate takes care of the high-performance power plant’s increased demand of intake air.
Each component of the engine control unit has been individually reprogrammed on the Sportec 4-wheel test rig. The result of such delicate precision work on the 550hp Sportec model SP 550mc is a gigantic torque of 705Nm which is already available at 4,030 rpm. Thus equipped, the SP 550mc goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and it only takes the SP550mc 11.0 seconds to catapult its passengers from zero to 200 km/h. Only at 331 km/h, natural driving resistances will put an end to this high-speed frenzy.
Optionally, the vehicle may be upgraded with following Sportec components:
Aerodynamically optimised Sportec front spoiler, unobtrusive side skirts, corresponding 3-part rear apron and a larger GT-syle rear wing spoiler.
By the way, since even sports cars can no longer dodge contemporary concerns of responsibility, Sportec plans to offer mean&clean versions for several other models in the near future. The same fun with less CO2 – what more do you want?
Another important reason for the Sportec SP550mc’s great environmental friendliness is its MICHELIN tyre equipment. The MICHELIN Pilot Sport PS2 offer a 19 % lower rolling resistance* and, thus, guarantee a more effective fuel consumption as well as lower CO2 emissions into the environment. Moreover, they are the pick of the bunch with regard to dry braking tests **. Therefore, the final customer does not have to make any compromises, but may combine low rolling resistance with excellent safety performances.
