TechArt has introduced their MAGNUM, a take on Porsche's Cayenne SUV. Engine modifications include larger turbos, a bigger intercooler, changes to the intake and exhaust, and ECU reprogramming. This is typical stuff for a turbocharged engine, and it produces typically impressive results, yielding 600 HP. That's enough for a 4.5-second 0-60 MPH time, and a top speed of over 180 MPH. The body kit includes flares that add about 3" in width, which gives the MAGNUM a stance that I really like; it's more like a wagon than an SUV, although I imagine it looks bigger in person. Those that opt for the factory air suspension get a TechArt module that allows lowering the vehicle by 60 mm, or raising it by 70 mm for "tough off-road use". Just so you know, I didn't type that last part with a straight face. Pricing is not stated, and you know what they say about those who have to ask.
