Vivid Racing VR825 Porsche 911 Turbo with 615kW

Vivid Racing has completed its 997 VR825 Porsche 911 Turbo project car. It features an aggressive Vorsteiner bodykit and mechanical revisions taking power to a colossal 825hp (615kw).

Vivid Racing has been building the Porsche for some time, slowly documenting various build aspects as it goes. It has since cracked 332km/h at the Texas Mile, and laid down 825hp from its 3.8-litre flat six engine.

Obviously, the engine has been administered with a healthy dose of upgrades, including GT3076rs twin-turbochargers running 23psi of boost. It also features a Softronic Tune engine computer remap, and a custom Valvetronic exhaust system with an in-car switch to swap from street to race settings.

On the outside, the Vivid Racing VR825 Porsche 911 Turbo features a full Vorsteiner VT-R bodykit and a lightweight Vorsteiner Clubsport carbon fibre bonnet. Matching the theme are a set of racing lightweight HRE C93 19-inch alloy wheels, measuring 8.5 inches wide on the front and 11 inches on the rear. The outer lips are coated in a House of Kolor red for a bit of contrast.

Ensuring the mighty beast stays flat and true while accelerating at ballistic rates, Vivid Racing has fit a full KW Variant 3 suspension coilover kit, and Agency Power sway bars and various joints and bushes. The upgrades allow the body to sit perfectly over those deep-dish wheels.

Vivid Racing has since sold the epic build but has put together a neat video, as seen below. It was filmed in Arizona on the street and partly on the track. Nice work guys, we look forward to a 991 Porsche 911 Turbo build…
