Usually known for its work on new cars, Obergartzem tuning specialist mcchip-dkr has developed the MC600 program to satisfy a customer who needed an upgrade for his Porsche 993 GT2, the last of the great air-cooled models.

The conversion begins with the company gutting the car before totally rebuilding its 3.6-litre bi-turbo engine with a new block, a pair of modified K26 PÜTZ Motorsport turbochargers, a Cargraphic exhaust system with racing catalysts and its own ECU software, seeing a a rise in output from 336 kW (450 hp) and 586 Nm of torque to 450 kW (604 hp) and 847 Nm. A Drexler limited-slip differential was also fitted.

Chassis tweaks include a KW racing Competition Variant 3 suspension kit and Cargraphic RS wheels measuring 10 and 13 x 18-inches, while on the inside there’s a full roll-cage, Stack instrument display, Recaro Pole Position bucket seat, OMP steering wheel and carbon fibre panelling for the doors and dashboard.

The conversion takes a total of 800 hours to complete and is priced at €200,000.

Porsche 911 looks good standing still

Porsche 991 projection
Here’s footage from a recent event at Porsche Centre Padova, which saw the new 911 Carrera 4S being used as a projection screen to demonstrate “motionless driving” for the audience’s pleasure.

On the actual road, the 294 kW (400 hp) 3.8-litre-engined Carrera 4S cracks 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.3s) and enjoys a 299 km/h top speed.

If you think this method looks familiar, it may be because Audi did something similar last year.

Here’s a video from Damon Fryer, a snowboarding Lamborghini owner who likes to make good use of his Gallardo’s all-wheel-drive system. The Canadian used his V10-engined supercar to visit Mount Washington on Vancouver Island for a little action on the powder. Looks slightly quicker than a Snowareg
