Edo Competition Porsche Carrera GT

Edo Competition decided to improve the Porsche Carrera GT, a model that was introduced for the first time two years ago. The cat-back exhaust system was developed on the dynamometer from start to finish. The result is a power increase of 25 horsepower and 30 Nm of torque. The aerodynamic rear wing is fabricated entirely from carbon fiber. All modifications are carried out exclusively at Edo Competition Motorsport GmbH in Ahlen.

Introduced at the Frankfurt International Motor Show two years ago, the Carrera GT was the undisputed highlight of the event. Today, Carrera GT owners have the opportunity to make this expensive and rare Porsche even more sporting and exclusive than it already is.
This unbelievable excess of power and individuality is made by edo competition Motorsport!

670, 715 and even 770 HP, instead of 612 HP in the Carrera GT

edo competition achieves this level of power thanks to the use of a modified intake system, re-calibrated engine controls, high flow air filters and new header catalytic converters. To round off this power package, edo competition delivers a full stainless steel performance exhaust system featuring electronic programmable butterfly-valve control.

Acoustics are anything but neglected; the sport exhaust system, which is available in two different sound levels, produces a wonderful deep and sonorous tone, clearly announcing the approach of an edo competition Carrera GT.

The cat-back exhaust system was developed on the dynamometer from start to finish. The result is a power increase of 19 kW (25 hp) and a 30 Nm (22 ft-lb) increase in torque. An additional benefit: The system is 18kg (40 lbs) lighter!

Aerodynamics

The aerodynamic rear wing is fabricated entirely from carbon fiber. The center portion of the Gurney Flap raises along with the retractable rear wing to produce additional downforce on the rear axle, along with the fixed flaps on either side of the wing.


Wheels

Optimum grip is provided by edo competition`s wheel and tire combinations. Employing a new wheel design, the edo competition Carrera GT is equipped with a set of 18 in. forged wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. Front: 265/35 18, Rear: 345/30 18. Polished stainless steel outer rims and high-strength aluminium inner rims make these wheels a visual highlight.

All modifications are carried out exclusively at edo competition Motorsport GmbH in Ahlen.
