2013 FAB DESIGN Emperor II
FAB DESIGN presented its first interpretation of the Porsche Cayenne already at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011. Building on the success of this model, the Swiss customization specialist unveiled its latest version at the Auto Salon that meets and exceeds all expectations – the EMPEROR II. More dynamic, more luxurious, and more sophisticated than its predecessor. A dream car for those with the highest demands on driving pleasure and individuality.
Most impressive design package
Its impressive stylistic characteristics and lift-reducing features have always been a hallmark of the FAB chassis components. The wide-body kit of the EMPEROR II is again proof of FAB DESIGN's know-how and it transforms the Porsche SUV into the centre of attention on the streets and off-road. One component of the striking front design is the spoiler that is much racier with its over-sized cooling air intakes. The two ventilation ducts on the super light, carbon re-enforced engine hood ensure additional removal of the heat accumulated in the front engine. Added width to its wings, give the EMPEROR II its highly individual flair. Supplemented by its side skirts, an impressive 130 mm are added to the production-series body, conveying a message of pure power, even if simply parked at a street corner. The FAB ultra-light carbon rear spoiler with integrated diffuser provides enough space for the sports exhaust system with its four trapeze end pipes. It flows seamlessly into the overall package of the vehicle. As an option, visible carbon parts such as rear view mirror, front lip spoiler, and diffuser can be painted in the vehicle's colours.
For the first tile, FAB-Design offers its customization programme as part of its delivery programme. This way, any specialized shop, anywhere in the world, can convert a production-line Cayenne into an EMPEROR II. The price of the body styling kit is € 16,490 net, plus shipping costs.
More torque, more driving pleasure
The impressive appearance of the EMPEROR II is supported by a wide range of power kits. For the V8 engine of the Cayenne S Diesel, this programme offers a kit consisting of a sports exhaust system, sports air filter, and an optimised engine electronic system. Compared with the production type vehicle, the power is increased by up to 35 kW/48 HP and receives an additional torque of 80 Nm. At the same time, 5 km/h is added to its top speed, reaching 257 km/h, and accelerating to 100 km/h is reduced by 5.4 seconds. Acoustically, this is emphasised by the booming sound of the FAB sports exhaust system with its four end pipes.
Wheels and chassis – components for optimised road-handling and striking visual effects
Highest technical demands, paired with jazzy elegance are the hallmark of the EMPEROR II wheel design. Not only is the look of the multi-part forged wheel with its ten double-spoke design impressive, but so is its sophisticated manufacturing quality. The drop centre rim is offered in the dimensions 10 x 22 (front) and 12 x 22 (rear). The use of ultra-light aluminium alloys and the resulting reduction of the unsprung mass, significantly improve the acceleration, the braking distance, and the handling.
As optimal tyres for the EMPEROR II, FAB DESIGN recommends Dunlop Sport Maxx: 265/35 ZR22 (front) and 305/30 ZR22 (rear). A special eye-catcher is the FAB sports module in order to control the air suspension, using XXL wheels. Upon customer request, the SUV's centre point of gravity can be lowered by 45 mm.
Interior design without limits
Only the finest materials find their way into the car's interior, ensuring the greatest sense of comfort. The leather used for seats and dashboard in the EMPEROR II interior is extremely resilient, but still tremendously soft. The FAB upholstery shop uses only immaculate skin of natural products for integration into the interior, applying the most decorative stitching.
Whether it is double clear-coat finish, leather, carbon, or Alcantara – what ever your heart's desire, it is available upon request. From personalized foot mats to complete interior leather finish, everything is made with the highest degree of craftsmanship and precision, individually designed and integrated into the vehicle.
