Gunther Werks kembali memukau kami dengan proyek konversi Porsche 993 400R mereka yang tampan di The Quail, Monterey.

Setelah hampir 10 bulan pengujian dan penyetelan, Gunther Werks langsung menggarap proyek Porsche mereka dalam produksi terbatas.

Porsche edisi istimewa ini akan digarap Gunther Werks dengan durasi pekerjaan yang belum ditentukan.

Maklum saja, Gunther Werks mengerjakan semuanya dengan sentuhan tangan para orang-orang yang terampil dibidangnya.

Gunther Werks mengumumkan bahwa produksi Porsche 400R dikerjakan di fasilitas mereka di California Selatan.

Biaya untuk memodifikasinya mencapai banderol harga 525.000 dolar AS (sekitar Rp75 miliar) di luar mobil Porsche 993 yang menjadi basisnya.

Jika Anda meminta Gunther Werks untuk mencarikan 993 maka harganya pasti akan bertambah.

Yang bikin proyek ini begitu istimewa lantaran Gunther Werks hanya memproduksi Porsche 400R sebanyak 25 unit.

Setiap mobil yang dibuat, tersedia dengan berbagai pilihan yang dipesan lebih dahulu, mulai dari warna bodi, jahitan di setir, dan perawatan kulit di jok dan dasbor.

Gunther Werks mengatakan, salah satu pemilik pertama 400R adalah seorang kolektor di California Selatan yang menggunakan nama dan_am_i di Instagram.

"Kami telah menyelesaikan pengujian akhir dan sangat bersemangat untuk memberikan klien kami 400R pesanan mereka," kata Peter Nam, pendiri Gunther Werks.

"Seperti setelan buatan tangan, setiap kendaraan disesuaikan dengan pemiliknya."

"Mulai dari kombinasi interior dan eksterior, hingga peredam suspensi, kendaraan ini dibuat agar sesuai dengan keinginan dan kebutuhan setiap pelanggan," katanya.

Pada intinya, 400R hadir ditenagai oleh mesin 4,0 liter, sanggup menyemburkan kekuatan 400 tenaga kuda (298 kW) dan torsi 330 lb-ft (447 Nm).

Seiring dengan tenaga yang lebih besar, Porsche juga mendapatkan perubahan visual yang dramatis.

Eksteriornya mendapatkan widebody kit dengan bumper serat karbon baru, spatbor, dan bahkan atap serat karbon.

Porsche 400R menggunakan satu set coilover KW Clubsport, membawa seluruh paket lebih dekat ke tanah, dan ban belakang 315/30 18 inci.

Ada juga sayap yang dapat disesuaikan dan lampu depan LED.

Gunther Werks, a company dedicated to remastering the iconic Porsche® 993, today announced production of its bespoke 400R vehicles has begun at the company’s Southern California facility. The first three vehicles will be delivered in Q3 of 2018 with additional cars being delivered by year’s end as production ramps up.

More than 45 employees work diligently to assemble each Gunther Werks 400R by hand, including some of the leading Porsche experts in the world. The production team boasts more than 15 years of carbon fiber and composite experience, 30 years of Porsche engine building mastery and 20 years of suspension tuning knowledge.  

“We’ve completed final testing and are extremely excited to deliver our clients their 400R conversions,” said Peter Nam, Founder of Gunther Werks. “Like a handmade suit, each vehicle is tailored to its owner. From the interior and exterior combinations, to the suspension dampening, these vehicles are built to match each customer’s wants and needs.”

Each 993 that comes in for a 400R conversion is fully disassembled down to the frame and inspected. Once the initial inspection is completed the frame is media blasted and primered. Gunther Werks then installs the custom carbon fiber panels that create the distinctive sculpted body of the 2,700 pound 400R. Custom valved JRZ coilovers and a number of tailor-made suspension components are installed. These modifications increase the front and rear track width by over six inches, creating a 63 inch square track inspired by many iconic Porsche race cars. 

Rothsport Racing’s Jeff Gamroth, an acclaimed Oregon-based engine builder with more than 30 years of Porsche building and racing experience, creates the heart of each 400R by assembling and dyno testing each naturally aspirated 4.0-liter power plant while creating bespoke gear ratios for the six-speed transmission. Each motor produces more than 400 horsepower with an astonishing 7,800rpm redline.

“Working with Gunther Werks has allowed me the opportunity to build what I believe is the ultimate naturally aspirated Porsche motor,” said Jeff Gamroth, Owner of Rothsport Racing. “There is no expense spared when it comes to these motors and I take pride in building each one with the knowledge that some of the most discerning collectors in the world will enjoy them on the street and the racetrack for years to come.”

Each customer car is completely bespoke from the exterior color to the stitching on the steering wheel, there are no “standard options” when it comes to the 400R. Paint options are limitless and can be selected to match anything from customer’s favorite watch dial to their child’s eye color. Interior options are no different, as there are endless amounts of materials, patterns and color to satisfy even the most unique desires of Gunther Werk’s selective clientele.

“I wanted to add something unique to my collection where I could be involved in the design process from start to finish,” said a prominent car collector and Gunther Werks customer known as @Dan_am_i on Instagram. “The fact that only 25 will be built and each one is guaranteed to be unique really piqued my interest. Once I met the team and saw the facility firsthand I knew I was making the right decision. My 400R will be something special, so keep your eyes open for the debut.”
