TopCar Cayenne Vantage GTR2 Number 21 is Rocketry in Blue
It was just a few short weeks ago that Russian tuner TopCar showed off the 20th example of the 50 Porsche Cayenne based Vantage GTR2s it is building. That gunmetal goliath kind of blends in with the numerous stock copies of Porsche’s stump jumper on the road at first glance, partly because of its rather restrained coloring. That’s a shame, because the Vantage GTR2 needs much more than a quick glance to appreciate all the modifications that are present.
Vantage GTR2 #21, however, is not painted in too subtle a hue for its own good. The bright blue paint is a dramatic departure from its predecessor’s subdued pigmentation, but that’s not the only thing that’s changed.
One thing that isn’t different, however, is the TopCar widebody kit. Both bumpers, the hood (which is unpainted carbon fiber), and front fenders are replaced, while the door skins, rear quarter panels and rocker panels are extended. The tailgate gets a pair of spoilers, and the taillights receive smoked lenses. Unlike Number 20, which has 10-spoke ADV.1 wheels, Number 21 wears split five-spoke ADV.1s with rims finished in body color. Whether it’s in traffic or in a parking lot, this snazzier SUV will be easy to spot.
And speaking of snazzier, the interior is certainly that. There’s wall-to-wall (or door-to-door, to be more accurate) carbon fiber trim, and the seats have been reupholstered with two varieties of leather: Pale blue hide for most of the seat area, with black quilted inserts featuring blue stitching. The four outboard headrests feature plain black leather with the TopCar logo embroidered squarely in the middle. Other cockpit custom touches include blue carpet, black TopCar floormats and special pedal covers.
About the only thing that hasn’t been touched is the powertrain. TopCar does offer engine upgrades (including a package that boosts the Cayenne Turbo’s 4.8L twin-turbo V8 to 750hp) through third-party tuners, but apparently the buyer of this bad boy opted to leave the engine room alone. And overall, we’re guessing the owner will be very, very happy with how his (or her; TopCar isn’t ID-ing the customer) new toy turned out. We know we would be. Bring on Vantage GTR2 Number 22!
