Sportec SP600M

The internationally renowned Swiss auto conversion company Sportec, in co-operation with its project partners Toyo tires and Shell, not only blew away the 300 km mark for SUVs, but left the current world record of 282 km/h far behind by achieving a stunning 308.435 km/h. This world speed record with the SPORTEC SP600M on a 2.5 ton class Porsche Cayenne turbo was accomplished in the presence of international journalists at the ATP test track in Papenburg, Germany.

After this successful run, Ueli Hodel, Chief developer and founder of conversion systems
specializing in Porsches and Audis, was very pleased, remarking: “For our team, the SUV speed record is the icing on the cake for a very complex development project. We have been working hard for 13 months to reconcile top performance, meet road capabilities, lower the average fuel consumption, and generate solid looks. I am happy to see that we finally managed to achieve
all of our targets.

2.5 tons in 4.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h
The technical specifications of the SUV leave little doubt. With an effective output of 700 bhp, the record-setting vehicle has 250 bhp more than its street brother, and the torque was increased by 230 Nm for a total of 850 Nm to propel the SP600M in 4.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h – while the sprint to 200 km/h took only 14.6 seconds! The top speed went up from 266 km/h to 308 km/h. Such impressive features have truly earned the Sportec SP600M the envious title of “The world’s fastest SUV.”

Sportec SP600M – a new definition of mass inertia.

Extensive modifications
The mass-produced 4.5L V8 Biturbo was modified extensively
by Sportec’s developers:

Customized engine controls for 700 Bhp
Sportec camshafts (2x2)
Sportec air mass meter (2x)
Flow optimized exhaust manifold (2x)
Sportec turbocharger (2x)
Exhaust pre-tubes with sports catalytic converters
Sports exhaust system
Sports air filter
Optimized fuel system and cooling cycle
Reworked engine

The SP600M’s chassis was also modified to match the sporty performance, with an in-house developed Electronic Suspension Control (ESC) module that allowed variable, speed-dependent clearance of as little as 40 mm.

Faster and more attractive
Make good automobiles even better – that is the principle guiding Sportec’s auto conversions.
This is apparent in the SP600’s beautiful aerodynamic lines of the rim, and elegant front
and side aprons and side sills. Pure carbon linings turn the SUV’s inside and outside into a
top-notch designer piece. The reworked SP600M version also has a roof edge spoiler that cuts down problematic rear eddies at high speeds for improved aerodynamics.

High demands on tires and rims
In achieving the world speed record, the SUV’s tires and rims were put to the test.
With its highly developed SHL PROXES S/T tires, Toyo has set new standards for safety,
comfort, and performance. With a size of 295/30/R22 for the record-setting vehicle,
the motto behind these Toyo tires is – better grip for sports-loving SUV drivers. In order
to keep the unsprung mass as low as possible, the 22-inch Sportec Mono/10 rims
were manufactured with a special forging and milling technique – with the result that
the aluminum rims weigh in at just 14.8 kg. They also help improve the steering and
driving precision markedly. The trade press has already lauded the 10-spoke Sportec
wheels for its outstanding design many times.

High performance fuel for test tracks and the street
Sportec placed its trust for the record attempt in Shell’s V-Power, the only fuel that ensures
high performance both on the test track and the street. The guaranteed 100 octane fuel
has a positive influence on the acceleration, response, and elasticity of the engine, enabling
better use of the engine’s potential, and the conversion of energy into motive power.

Speed measurement according to FIA guidelines
The SUV world record run was conducted in compliance with analog time measurements,
with a maximum tolerance of 0.01 km/h. The firm TAG Heuer Professional Timing Germany
clocked the vehicle. It set up precision measuring instruments made by the Swiss watchmaker famous through the Formula 1 races, and since this year responsible for timekeeping for the
Indy Racing League.

All instruments and the ATP test track are certified.

The BMW X5 Le Mans has reaching 309 km/h on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. So it isnt the first one which reaches the 300 km/h mark

OK, but actually I wasn't serious. Nobody needs a SUV going 300km/h.
Next time I'll add a smiley
