$32k Brembo Race brake kit sits behind magnesium Dymag wheels with carbon barrels.
Under hard acceleration, you feel some weight transfer but there was minimal squat at the rear-end. Overall, the ride was firm but the owner hasn’t complained. He understands that in order to get it on the track, some sacrifices must be made.
The hardware to make it happen included Bilstein PSS Damptronic coilovers that work seamlessly with the PASM, according to Atik. In addition, evosport specified monoball inner A-arms, solid thrust arm bushings, adjustable dog-bone links and front camber plates plus H&R sway bars.
With this combination, the feedback through the steering wheel was so sensitive, you could probably read braille through the front tires. Turn-in response was hair-trigger quick and deliciously direct.
If you suspect nobody held back when building this car, a look at the brakes will close the deal. It has Brembo’s six-piston monoblock “Race” calipers up front, with four-pistons out back, clamping slotted 380mm and 345mm discs respectively. The pedal is firm, with good modulation and the bite is instantaneous. At roughly $32000 for the set, they’d better be good.
Since they’d established cost was irrelevant in achieving the goals, it was an easy jump to 19" magnesium Dymag wheels with carbon fiber barrels. They’re no longer in production, so you have to pay extra attention to curbs and potholes, but an extra set was bought just in case!
Carbon fiber rollcage replaces deleted rear seats.
According to Atik, they were good for as much as 25whp on the dyno, helping to justify the price tag. With the car spending part of its life on the track, evosport tightened the chassis with a carbon fiber rear rollcage and stripped out the rear seats. The sunroof was also removed, replaced by a Vorsteiner carbon panel, as was the hood. The battery is lighter than stock and GT2 carbon bucket seats were fitted.
In a rare nod to luxury, a few choice surfaces such as the headliner, steering wheel and seats were covered in alcantara. HD video cameras were also discreetly hidden behined the rearview mirror and on the rear window, with the action recorded by a Racekeeper video and datalogging system.
The exterior of this 911 Turbo is a mixture of OEM and aftermarket. For starters, there are GT2 rocker panels and the rear bumper from the 997.2 Turbo, except evosport cut custom grilles into it, resembling the GT3 RS 4.0. Meanwhile, the front bumper also had 997.2 DRLs retrofitted before GT3 RS front fenders were grafted into place. They required some modification but now look OEM.
From the aftermarket, Werks1 supplied a carbon front splitter and rear diffuser. The carbon engine cover is from Vorsteiner, fitted with an Aeromotions Full-Active rear wing, which operates like the airbrake on the McLaren-Mercedes SLR – the carbon wing tilts forward when the brakes are applied. The operating mechanism was skillfully integrated into the uprights.
The evosport evo3-900 is the modern supercar’s evil twin. Built without compromise, it comes with road noise, a firm ride and booming exhaust. No apologies. It’s the antithesis of the modern sports car.
