The number of supercars that haven't been modified by Edo Competition is shrinking daily. Its latest victim is the Carrera GT, which gets the option of three different engine upgrades and a potential of 770 horsepower. The stage 1 package includes a new air intake and filter, an ECU calibration, high-flow catalytic converters, and a cat-back exhaust system good for a total of 670 horsepower. Stage 2 adds upgraded cylinder heads and headers good for another 45 ponies. Finally, the stage 3 option includes a bump in displacement to 6.0-liters, along with new camshafts and pistons good for 770 horsepower. Other upgrades are available as well, including an adjustable KW suspension system, high performance brake pads, forged wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires, a carbon fiber wing, and Recaro sport seats with 6-point harnesses. No word on pricing, but if you have to ask... yada, yada, yada.

Introduced at the Frankfurt International Motor Show two years ago, the Carrera GT was the undisputed highlight of the event. Today, Carrera GT owners have the opportunity to make this expensive and rare Porsche even more sporting and exclusive than it already is.
This unbelievable excess of power and individuality is made by edo competition Motorsport!
670, 715 and even 770 HP, instead of 612 HP in the Carrera GT
edo competition achieves this level of power thanks to the use of a modified intake system, re-calibrated engine controls, high flow air filters and new header catalytic converters. To round off this power package, edo competition delivers a full stainless steel performance exhaust system featuring electronic programmable butterfly-valve control.
Acoustics are anything but neglected; the sport exhaust system, which is available in two different sound levels, produces a wonderful deep and sonorous tone, clearly announcing the approach of an edo competition Carrera GT.
The cat-back exhaust system was developed on the dynamometer from start to finish. The result is a power increase of 19 kW (25 hp) and a 30 Nm (22 ft-lb) increase in torque. An additional benefit: The system is 18kg (40 lbs) lighter!
The aerodynamic rear wing is fabricated entirely from carbon fiber. The center portion of the Gurney Flap raises along with the retractable rear wing to produce additional downforce on the rear axle, along with the fixed flaps on either side of the wing.
The 3-way adjustable edo/KW Competition shock absorbers and sports suspension system are designed for motorsports. For our 3-way adjustable shock absorbers, we employ gas mono-tube shocks that are adjustable for compression and rebound (separate adjustments for low/high speed compression damping) and feature a remote oil reservoir. The damping forces can be adjusted individually.
edo competition also offers an electro-hydraulic nose lift system as optional equipment.
Optimum grip is provided by edo competition's wheel and tire combinations. Employing a new wheel design, the edo competition Carrera GT is equipped with a set of 18 in. forged wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. Front: 265/35 18, Rear: 345/30 18. Polished stainless steel outer rims and high-strength aluminium inner rims make these wheels a visual highlight.
All modifications are carried out exclusively at edo competition Motorsport GmbH in Ahlen.
