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.

The technological progress in the area of aerodynamics is particularly apparent. It is the first time that a suspended rear wing has been fitted on a Porsche series production car. Its swan-neck mounting is used in a similar form in the GT racing car 911 RSR and the one-make cup racing car 911 GT3 Cup. Since two aluminium brackets now hold the wing element from above, the airflow can pass undisturbed across the underside, which is aerodynamically more sensitive. This new design led to a reduction in the flow losses and not only increased the downforce, but also resulted in well-balanced negative lift conditions together with many other detailed measures. “We developed the aerodynamics of the new 911 GT3 in around 700 simulations. We spent more than 160 hours fine-tuning the car in the wind tunnel,” explains aerodynamics engineer Mathias Roll.
The all-new McLaren Artura is revealed today, marking the beginning of both a new chapter for the pioneering luxury supercar company and a new era in supercar technology and performance. McLaren’s first series-production High-Performance Hybrid supercar focuses more than half a century of the company’s racing and road-car experience and expertise into a next-generation supercar that blends ground-breaking technology with McLaren’s dedication to pure driver engagement. Underpinned by the McLaren philosophy of super-lightweight engineering, the all-new Artura is the distillation of every attribute inherent in a McLaren – distinctive design, unrivalled performance, dynamic excellence and engineering innovation – with electrification now bringing the additional benefits of even faster throttle response, lower emissions and being able to run in pure EV mode for emissions-free journeys of up to 30km.
