Hellboy edo Panamera S

After the Porsche Panamera Turbo had already received a full performance and aerodynamics makeover from edo competition, the logical next step was the 400 horsepower Panamera S. For the Hellboy project, the output of the Panamera’s direct-injected V8 engine was increased from 400 hp to 465 hp. This enables the Panamera to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds and reach a top speed of over 305 km/h (190 mph).

Thanks to the new, pressure-monitoring and self-adjusting exhaust system with butterfly valves, it’s perfectly possible to keep things quiet and comfortable – but where’s the fun in that? The newly developed header-back stainless-steel exhaust system features high-performance catalytic converters, high-flow mufflers and new tail pipes. As a welcome side-effect, the new system is about 35 kg (77 kb) lighter than the factory setup. Using two round exhaust tips struck us as a little unimaginative, which is why our interpretation features a billet aluminum, ceramic-coated and heat-resistant tail pipe that doesn’t just look great on its own, it also integrates very well with the new carbon fiber rear skirt. Rounding off the engine modifications are an ECU recalibration tuned on the dyno and a set of high-flow air filters.

The newly developed carbon fiber front skirt with integrated daytime running lights also features enlarged air intakes for improved cooling. The new carbon fiber front lip increases downforce and the elegant side skirts add to the car’s side profile. A new carbon fiber rear skirt along with the diffuser and fins, new side mirrors and fender vents enhance the vehicle’s aerodynamics and looks. An old classic instead of a large wing: a ducktail spoiler, reminiscent of the legendary Carrera RS, completes the picture. The front wheels measure 9.5 x 21 and use 265/35 ZR 21 tires, the rears are 11 x 21 with 305/30 ZR 21 tires. An electronic lowering module that can bring the body up to 30 mm closer to the ground can be fitted on request.

Hellboy’s visual impact would be lacking without a suitably exquisite interior, which is why edo competition has upgraded the cabin in a number of ways. New steering wheels, center and shifter consoles, pedals, seats or custom upholstery work, the possibilities are endless.
