ENCO Gladiator 700 GT Biturbo Based on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo

The name Porsche has always been synonymous with sports cars, in most cases rear or mid-engined. The Cayenne proved to have the recipe for success. In 2003 financial year it sold almost 40.000 units and it was by far the most popular Porsche model. It also became popular with tuners, as it offered, both visually and technically, an outstanding basis for monumental show and performance projects. At a first glance, the Gladiator is bigger and more powerful than the normal Cayenne. What is not obvious is the ENCO front apron right underneath the car with its huge air intake and its integrated rows of daytime running lights. The bonnet with incorporated air intakes is crafted out of carbon and only the Cayenne experts can really spot the aerodynamic styling just a few centimeters under the skirting-line at first glance. The Gladiator 700 GT Biturbo is capable of developing 700 PS and 850 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 290 km/h. Inside it features four individual leather / Alcantara bucket seats taken from the Porsche 911 GT3 that have been further enhanced with carbon backrests and red carbon fiber padding. The electronic suspension module lowers the model by 50 mm. the power reaches the road through 315/25R23 wheels covered in Dunlop Sport Maxx GT tires. A range of red carbon fittings were offered for the dashboard, steering wheels, center console, roll cage, door lining and center console. To handle the extra power, ENCO equipped the model with a high-performance braking system with 410 .mm x 36 mm brake discs and 12-piston calipers on the front axle and 380 mm x 32 mm discs with 4-piston calipers on the rear one.
