What happens when three German tuning studios like Jurgen Alzen Motorsport, RS Tuning and H&R join their efforts on achieving their ultimate goal in a cooperative project called Mission 400 Plus”? The answer is the fastest street legal sports car with a top speed of over 400 km/h, which will be shown to the public in the form of a prototype at the upcoming Essen Motor Show.

This new speed record and the potential Bugatti Veyron killer is based on a stock Porsche 911 (997) Turbo that was heavily modified by those three companies mentioned earlier. Jurgen Alzen Motorsport was up to the task of creating this speed demons bodykit and interior, RS Tuning juiced up the engine with some serious modifications, while experts from H&R did what they do best and that was creating and tuning sports the car suspensions.

As you might have already noticed, this car is much sleeker than the stock Porsche 911 (997) Turbo. One of the main reasons for such impression is roof, which was lowered by an almost 10 centimetres. The second reason is the front windshield was declined by 5.5 degrees to lower the cars aerodynamic resistance.

As we have mentioned before, the fun part was trusted to the RS Tuning experts and they did not disappoint other project members. Because of this company and many magic al spells thrown under the hood of this 911 Turbo, it now outputs, in old school terms, a mind-blowing 1054hp. For such an insane power increase the basic variable geometry turbocharger was dumped for a bigger conventional one. Also the stock 3.6 litre displacement was stretched to 3.8 liters to generate even more power and torque which now sits at a gearbox breaking 1030Nm’s of torque. There are a lot more other hi-tech and not so hi-tech upgrades that were installed to achieve such performance heights, but i am not going to go into them.

Every corner of the car was equipped, by H&R, with an A-shaped lever with special springs and shock absorbers. The company hopes the suspension upgrades should help to increase the handling of this ulttimate car at speeds over 400km/h.The lucky one or should we say the brave one piloting this modified speedy Porsche 911 Turbo will be the founder of Jurgen Alzen Motorsport. Mission 400 Plu should enter the wonderfully scary world of “400km/h and beyond” at the Nardo test track in Italy, which is mostly used for high-speed car tryouts.
