A new high-performance supercar from BRABUS in a class of its own takes the stage: BRABUS now also offers an exclusive refinement range for the Porsche 911 Turbo S of the current 992 series. The power unit engineers of the world’s largest independent automotive refinement specialist developed two BRABUS performance upgrades and a high-performance exhaust system made from ultralight INCONEL for the turbocharged flat-six engine. In the top-of-the-range BRABUS PowerXtra P38S-820 variant, the engine puts out 603 kW / 820 hp (809 bhp) and produces a peak torque of 950 Nm (701 lb-ft) at a low 4,000 rpm. It cuts the sports car’s sprint time from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) to a mere 2.5 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 340 km/h (211 mph). Visually, BRABUS refines the current 911 Turbo Coupe or Convertible with a newly developed exposed-carbon aerodynamics upgrade and BRABUS Monoblock Z “PLATINUM EDITION” hi-tech forged wheels in a staggered combination of wheels with diameters of 21 and 22 inches. The suspension delivers even more agile handling thanks to height-adjustable BRABUS sport springs. An exclusive BRABUS MASTERPIECE interior adds the finishing touch to any 911 model.

However, titles like these leave the Bavarian motorsports icon stone cold.
