Kubatech, a self-proclaimed engine software expert from Mechernich, Germany, has introduced a new Stage II tuning kit for the Porsche Carrera GT, which adds an extra 48 hp (36 kW) and 52 Nm (38 lb-ft) of torque. The German firm achieved this by modifying the engine management system and fitting a new Cargraphic sport exhaust system.
With 612 hp (456 kW) delivered by the 5.7-liter V10, the Carrera GT is anything but underpowered, still who can resist a nice, round figure like 660 hp (492 kW)? The Stage II kit also helps increases the GT's top speed, from the standard model's 330 km/h (205 mph) to 343 km/h (213 mph). The company also states that the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint has been reduced, but didn't release any numbers.
Kubatech will charge you €10,699 (or US$14.837) for this modification, which is usually completed in 2 to 3 working days.
