Porsche Cayenne 3.2 Biturbo by Eibach and partners - engine compartment

Suspension specialist Eibach is renowned for its unusual project vehicles. Last year, the industry was fascinated by the Eibach X5. Now, together with its partners, the Finnentrop Company is setting new standards with its new project vehicle made in Zuffenhausen. Thanks to a series of unique modifications and the concept of the collaboration of the individual partners, the Porsche Cayenne 3.2 Biturbo »Sport Utility Vehicle« has been transformed into a special kind of Olympian, just in time for the games in Athens.

The basis of the latest Eibach project is the Porsche Cayenne with a 3.2 liter V6 cylinder induction engine with 250 hp. Of course, this performance won't do for a super-athlete, particularly because with Eibach vehicles, the aim is to demonstrate the maximum of what's possible. This is right in line with the 'Nothing Is Impossible' motto. That's why an engine expert was sought who specializes in unusual plans. And this expert and the perfect partner for the Eibach Cayenne was duly found with turbo specialists, HGP Turbonachrüstung.

A completely new HGP development lends this Eibach luxury SUV an unbelievable performance of 470 hp and maximum torque of 650 Nm. That makes a total of 220 hp more than the showroom model, and even 20 hp more than in the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. Top speed stands at 270 km/h. This data speaks clearly. The Eibach Cayenne is a powerful, exceptional athlete. This impressive performance was made possible through a range of comprehensive modifications. Here HGP installed two optimized-flow 3K Motair? turbos. The turbo superchargers conduct a kind of forced breathing of 1.0 bar, or 1.2 bar overboost charging pressure.

The engine management was additionally optimized, large-volume channels and a sport filter from the specialists at K&N were installed, as well as further extensive, performance-oriented modifications. The sport exhaust system from Remus ensures a fast and reliable air rate. It was especially designed for the 3.2 Biturbo, and it doesn't just improve the performance, but it also equips this exceptional athlete with a uniquely dominant, sonorous sound.

Most amazing of all is the fact that the Eibach Cayenne is clearly stronger and at the same time consumption-friendlier than the comparable Cayenne Turbo is. This is even more remarkable since the conversion by HGP costs around 20,000 Euros, only adding up to some 68,000 Euros for the Eibach Cayenne (without further modifications). The turbo, on the other hand, stands at around 100,000 Euros. Of course, with this kind of performance data, the suspension also has to be adjusted accordingly. The Eibach engineers designed suspension springs made of LCB titanium material solely for this ambitious project.

A special feature of these unique springs is their low weight combined with maximum performance. In addition, special tubular stabilizers (»Anti-Roll-Kit«) were created to save on mass. In comparison with the manufacture of these components from full material (steel), this means a weight advantage of around 30% with the springs, and with the stabilizers, again some 22% on the front axle and around 33% on the rear axle. With a total weight of almost two tons, the ultra-light Eibach components have an extremely positive effect on getting the most out of the performance.
