TechArt Magnum based on Porsche Cayenne Turbo

At the Geneva Motor Show one the most popular tuner cars this year is the new 2012 Porsche Cayenne. TechArt is one of the more prominent Porsche tuners presenting in the Swiss city, so coverage wouldn't be complete without their version of the Cayenne II dubbed, Magnum.

Based on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, the Magnum features an aggressive front bumper, extended wheel arches, and a ventilated hood. Additionally, the crossover is equipped with modified side sills, a prominent rear spoiler, and massive alloy wheels.

Under the hood, the twin-turbo 4.8-liter V8 engine has been outfitted with a TA 058/T1 power kit which enables it to produce 560 PS (412 kW / 553 hp) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 60 PS (44 kW / 59 hp) and 80 Nm (59 lb-ft). Thanks to the extra oomph, the Magnum can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 15.8 seconds, and hit a top speed of 287 km/h (178 mph).
