If you feel that a 480hp Porsche 911 Turbo with its 3.8 seconds of 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time is somewhat not adequate to your driver’s needs, then German tuning specialist Hamann does have a good news for you.



Called Hamann Stallion, the car is based on current Porsche 911 Turbo offering 630hp of maximum power output, 359 km/h top speed and shaving exactly 0.5 seconds off time needed to reach that sacred 100km/h mark.

Such an impressive increase in power came courtesy of adding a pair of larger variable nozzle turbochargers (VNC), as well as new stainless steel exhaust system with metal catalytic converters, sports air strainer and new ECU unit to the original 3.6-liter Biturbo engine.

There are also substantial enhancements to the vehicle’s aerodynamics. Not limiting itself to the usual cosmetic changes like, say, new body kit, Hamann also changed the 911’s roofline by lowering the front and rear pillars, as well as reshaping windows by up to 8 cm (3.14 inches). The tuner doesn’t say a word about changes in structural rigidity of the super-car, but, given their reputation of one of the most competent modifications specialists in Europe, I am pretty sure that the vehicle’s body may have become even more rigid than that of the original. This is just how good they are.

The down force on the rear axle is lowered thanks to a huge rear wing.
