Edo Competition Porsche Carrera GT

(from Edo Competition Press Release)

Quote:
A fiery passion that nobody can escape


Introduced at the Frankfurt International Motor Show two years ago, the Carrera GT was the undisputed highlight of the event.

Today, Carrera GT owners have the opportunity to make this expensive and rare Porsche even more sporting and exclusive than it already is.

This unbelievable excess of power and individuality is made by edo competition Motorsport

Specifications

Engine V10
Power 670 hp / (492kW) at 8,100 rpm
Max. torque 640 Nm (472 ft-lb) at 5,800 rpm

Performance

Top speed > 345 km/h (214 mph)
0 - 100 km/h (0 62 mph) est. 3.4 s

Features

Engine Stage 1 - Price:

Power increase to 670 hp/640 Nm (472 ft-lb), V-max > 345 km/h (214mph)

Modified intake system

High flow air filters

ECU recalibration

New header catalytic converters

New sports exhaust system with electronic programmable butterfly-valve control (available in 2
different sound levels). This cat-back performance exhaust system was developed on the dyno.

Suspension

The 3-way adjustable edo/KW Competition shock absorbers and sports suspension systems are designed for motorsports. For our 3-way adjustable shock absorbers we employ gas mono-tube shocks that are adjustable for compression and rebound (separate adjustments for low-/high- speed compression damping) and that feature a remote oil reservoir. The damping forces can be adjusted individually.

Optionally we offer an electro-hydraulic nose lift system.

Brakes

edo competition high-performance brake pad set for ceramic rotors

Wheels

New wheel design: Set of 18 in. forged wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup

Front: 265/35 18, Rear: 345/35 18, with polished stainless steel outer rims and forged high strength aluminium inner rims

Aerodynamics

Carbon-fiber rear wing profile produces downforce for increased stability

Interior

Recaro leather sport seats, 6-point harnessesAll these modifications are performed at our headquarters in Ahlen/Germany only!

What are Edo going to do when they've run out of current supercars to make better? Maybe they could work their way back through the years, Ferrari F50, 288GTO, Countach, Miura, Alfa Stradale, Duesenberg SSJ, Bugatti 57SC, Mercedes 60hp...

I would like to seee them get their hands on a CCX though.

The first and last pictures look more like chops in the first post.

I hate it when they try to make it "look" like it's been tuned. Instead, they're just dumb chops. They might as well make it first. Showing me a chop proves nothing.

I must be seeing things. Is this car sporting an actual race-like spoiler in some shots, and the factory spoiler in others?

To be fair, Edo tune their cars for track use, and on a track with over 700bhp, I think I'd want more downforce than Porsche supply as standard. I am glad they make it removable.

It also could use a little body kit. If you know what I mean. Gemballa has a nice one the mirage GT. http://farm1.static.flickr.com/130/3...2e42c5b800.jpg

I really like the way these guys work. Increasing characteristics so much for such cars. What is more, thay avoid those loosy bodykits.

I don't think the huge wing in the first post first pic is real.

But yeah, the rest of the car is real.
