Gunther Werks enhances the analog driving experience offered by the original car, while at the same time retaining the car’s iconic attributes. Each commission features a bespoke interior and exterior combination that is unique to every car remastered by Gunther Werks.
The new carbon fiber body panels are functionally designed to optimize cooling and downforce that support the 700hp capabilities of the car, shaving 500 lbs. from the original platform.
Widened aero side skirts and Vented rear quarter panels with ram air intake
The rear fender vents are not merely cosmetic, split in two, both sections have very specific roles.
The upper vent is used to feed air via the most direct route to each turbo, thus optimizing throttle response and minimising turbo charger spool times, all but eliminating any lag.
The lower vent provides a cool air feed channelled to the rear mounted charge cooler radiator’s that then exits via the rear bumper. Optimising cooling to both radiators whilst at the same time enhancing airflow around the rear diffuser.
At high speed, a ram air effect is created to further maximise the efficiency of vents further.
The interior features a bespoke carbon fiber steering wheel with integrated controls for track mode and a nose lift.
The redesigned center console features a magnetic inductive charging base for integrated entertainment - supporting both smartphone and tablet connectivity.
COMFORT & SAFETY
Additionally, the newly designed and engineered lightweight carbon fiber bucket seats can utilize both a 5-point harness and 3-point belts.
Project Tornado features a Rothsport Racing built 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine. Power is transferred to a 6-speed manual transmission with rear wheel drive.
Using a racing-derived flat fan and liquidcharged cooling, the engine is controlled by a sophisticated Motec engine management system, its output being anastonishing 600hp in standard form, with track mode seeing that output increase to 700hp.
