ENCO Exklusive Gladiator 700 GT Biturbo: A 700HP Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Even the name "ENCO Exclusive Gladiator 700 GT Biturbo" prepares you for something that's not going to score any points in the "taste" department. And true enough, the German tuner's Porsche Cayenne Turbo proposal gives another meaning to the term "lipstick on a pig" - dark red lipstick to be precise. You can see it everywhere; on the massive 23-inch alloy wheels that are shod in 315/25 R23 rubber, the two tone paintjob, the engine cover and even the carbon-fiber inserts and the roll cage in the interior.

But that's not all. The Gladiator also gets a full body armor kit with a restyled front bumper that incorporates a huge mouth-like grille and a lower apron, a new carbon fiber bonnet, wider side panels with air vents, side skirts, roof spoiler and a rear apron with an integrated diffuser that also houses a pair of tail pipes in the center.

Move on to the interior and aside from the dark red carbon trim elements and the roll cage you'll also find four bucket seats from the 911 GT RS with carbon backrests.

And you'll probably need those bucket seats as the tuning firm gave the stock Cayenne Turbo's V8 engine larger turbos, a sport exhaust system with manifolds and sport catalytic convertors.

Along with numerous other modifications the result is an output of 700 horsepower and 850 Nm or 627 lb-ft of torque, more than enough to propel the Gladiator from naught to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of around 290 km/h or 180 mph.

The engine kit is complemented by a high-performance braking system with 410mm x 36mm brake disks and 12-piston callipers up front and 380mm x 32mm disks with 4-piston callipers at the rear while the tuner also fitted the Cayenne with an electronic suspension module that lowers the car by some 50mm.

No prices were released but we gather that money won't be an issue for those who find the Gladiator 700 GT Biturbo fascinating enough and at the same time are able to afford a Cayenne Turbo.
