Beckham: All Blacked Out

David Beckham was recently spotted driving a Porsche Turbo Cabriolet when he picked up his wife, Victoria (“Posh Spice”), at the LAX Airport. This Cabriolet was customized for Beckham, getting an overhaul to suit his taste and style. The headrests of the vehicle had custom embroideries and the exterior was made all black. Beckham fans would be keen to know that his customized Porsche Turbo Cabriolet now matches the rest of his five black vehicles.

Distinctively styled with class, the Porsche Turbo Cabriolet has an engine which is all about power. It has turbochargers which features Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) and its 3.6-L engine has 353 kW at 6,000 rpm. It has a maximum torque of 620Nm, where it can rise to 680 Nm with the “overboost” function that comes with the Sport Chrono Package Turbo option. Safety is not left behind with this model. It has 6-piston fixed calipers at the front and the rear has four-piston fixed calipers. With monobloc aluminum construction, these brakes provide more stability and added efficiency in braking. This is just scratching the surface of safety. This particular model also comes with anti-theft protection and six separate airbags.

The standard seats have full electric adjustments, its seat base lowered to give more headroom. The rear seats have a lot of storage area. One simply folds the backrests down for that extra 155 liters’ worth of luggage space. The additional features of the Porsche Turbo Cabriolet are the “Welcome Home” lighting, ParkAssist, Cruise control, HomeLink, and Dimming mirrors.

The Porsche Turbo Cabriolet is the vehicle with high torque at low engine speeds. This means that there is no turbo lag. It also has excellent handling and increase in performance. The power output may be high but that its fuel consumption? You’d be surprised to know that it’s low.
