The TR 800 also receives unique carbon fiber touches from TopCar.
Manhart Performance has announced its latest project, the TR 800 based on the Porsche 911 Turbo S with uprated power, a unique carbon fiber body kit, and vivid paintwork
The already powerful 3.8-liter flat-six receives a turbo performance kit (which comprises an intercooler and turbo kit) along with Manhart ECU tuning. For a throatier sound, the stock exhaust has been replaced with a stainless steel exhaust system with valve control. Where permitted, owners can elect to specify sports downpipes with 200-cell catalytic converters.
The end result? A staggering 821 horsepower and 712 lb-ft of torque.
Of course, Manhart has updated the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission to work seamlessly with the uprated powerplant. While the brakes remain stock, the tuning company will fit an uprated system - at extra cost, of course.
To ensure that clients can safely use all that power, Manhart has upgraded the TR 800's suspension. H&R lowering springs provide the car with an even sportier look and, according to Manhart, improve the ride quality. Overall, the car sits closer to the road by 1.18 inches.
Manhart doesn't believe in subtlety and has elected to paint this particular 911 in a vivid shade of orange. It's not the traditional black and gold usually associated with the company, but it looks rather good in its own way. Interestingly, the tuner has tapped TopCar - another tuner famous for its carbon fiber-bodied Porsches - for the front spoiler lip, mirror caps, rear diffuser, and other exterior accents.
Of course, it wouldn't be a Manhart design without the liberal use of exterior decals. The tuner's brand name takes pride of place on the windshield, while Turbo S graphics can be seen on the side of the vehicle. Elsewhere, a solitary black stripe cascades down the hood.
Tucked away in the wheel arches you'll find the Manhart Concave One wheels. Seen here in a satin black finish with contrasting orange trim, the pricey rims measure 21 inches up front and 22 inches at the rear.
Perhaps the interior isn't the masterpiece you'd expect, with retrimmed seats in black and orange leather. The company's logo can be seen on the backrests, while the steering wheel receives stitching in the vivid hue. It's not cheap-looking or vulgar by any means, but doesn't look quite as upscale and polished as Porsche's standard upholstery.
There's no word on pricing, but we can only assume the TR 800 will cost a small fortune. After all, a stock 911 Turbo S retails for $195,700. That being said, it will certainly stand out from the crowd at your local Cars and Coffee meet or the Country Club.
While Manhart Performance specializes in tuning BMWs, this isn't the first time the company has turned its hand to Zuffenhausen's finest. Previously, the company created the TR 750, a 911 Turbo with 740 hp and sharper handling. If you prefer something a bit more practical, the CRT 800 - based on the Cayenne Coupe - is worth a look.
