Kraftkur for Porsche and McLaren


The Chiptuning specialist is once again striking: Racechip is building two new project vehicles, which are supposed to show how much know-how the company from Göppingen has in its development. We take a look at the tuning program for the McLaren 570S and the Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel.

British Supersport
Let's start with the British supersport. The 570S is the strongest model of McLaren's "Sport Series". Below the 540C, above the 650S. As competitors, McLaren has chosen the Audi R8 and the Porsche 911 Turbo among other things. The 570S comes as standard with 570 hp and 600 Newtonmeter from a 3.8-liter eight-cylinder engine. Thanks to the Chiptuning module from Racechip the Englishman now manages to 650 hp and 660 Newtonmeter. But this is not the end of tuning. Over the winter follow super-rimmed rims from HRE, which are covered with extremely grippy Michelin Cup2 tires. In addition, the chassis specialists from KW are developing a new coilover for the McLaren. A titanium exhaust system from Akrapovic is to finally round off the picture acoustically. We are very excited about how the final result can be heard and heard!

Bearstarker Diesel
No less impressive is the second project vehicle of the Göppinger. The new Porsche Panamera 4S diesel brings a massive 422 hp and 850 newton meters from a powerful V8 diesel engine. Properly it becomes with the additional control unit of Racechip: 505 HP and 1,037 Newtonmeter are now on the data sheet. The Panamera is further customized with a new exhaust system, a sporty chassis and tailor-made OZ rims. Racechip Managing Director Manuel Götz also tells us the following: "The Panamera Diesel is predestined for a good Chiptuning." After our performance, we do not even notice that you are sitting in a large sedan and not in a super sports car ".

Broadly arranged
Whether it's a super sports car or a supercruiser, Racechip has two real spearheads in the portfolio, in addition to the previously machined cars - Porsche Macan Turbo, Audi RS 3 and VW Golf R - which demonstrate the importance of chip tuning in the scene.
