The car comes with the Porsche’s standard Sport Design Package featuring chin spoiler up front and classic ‘duck tail’ spoiler at the rear to make the car look distinctive.
On entering inside the coupe, the same distinctiveness and exclusivity is maintained. Interior of the car features full natural leather in Espresso with stitching in Luxor Beige, air vents, louvers, seat backrest of the Sports Seats Plus and great attention to detail.
Under the hood, the Carrera S 6-cylinder naturally-aspirated boxer engine with direct injection powers the coupe to generate output of 430 horsepower, which is 30 hp more than regular Carrera S Coupe. This new drivetrain has a modified cylinder heads and camshafts along with the newly developed variable resonance-type intake system incorporated with switchable flaps to produce more power. Coupe is equipped with a sports exhaust system bearing two dual tailpipes. New tweaked engine with carbon fibre inserts when mated to Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch gearbox can sprint from zero to 100 kmph within 4 seconds.
