After gaining the new speed record for fullsize-SUVs at the High Speed Event at the Italian Nardo circuit at the beginning of December 2009, the tuners at Techart smashed the former lap record at the Sachsenring race track. The performance was achieved with their GT Street RS vehicle, based on the Porsche 911 GT2 with a 700hp (515 kw) and 860nm of torque.
The GT Street RS have already demonstrated its sprinter qualities by getting to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds.
Furthermore, the sports car achieved a 36-yard braking distance at a speed of 100 km/h. According to its creators, these performance figures were due to the TÜV-tested and approved components as well as OEM quality of the vehicle.
For the conclusion of the extensive test program, the TECHART GT Street RS was able to crown once more the performance achieved on this day. With a lap time of 1:31.94 min, the winner of the Tuner Grand Prix 2008 and 2009 repeatedly demonstrated the TECHART winning gene,” a company statement reads.
With more than 1.95 sec of head start, it left not only the competitors far behind, but improved the current AutoBild SPORTSCARS lap record at the Sachsenring by an respectable 4.47 sec with a time of 1:31.94.
Price for the 700hp GTstreet RS starts at €350,000.
