Russian tuner TopCar has really made a name for themselves with some fantastic Porsche styling packages, and this Cayenne might be the best one we’ve seen yet. Even better is the fact that there are some stunning photos and scenery to go along with the Cayenne, that is featured in a unique shade of Amethyst Metallic, a color Porsche offers on some of their models.

For their Porsche Cayenne Vantage 2, TopCar offers a complete widebody conversion which includes matching front and rear bumpers and side skirts. The aggressive styling of the kit really transforms the Cayenne from bumper to bumper, and the subtle Amethyst Metallic finish gives it a sleek, exotic look. The elegant design of the concave split-five spoke wheels were a perfect match to the Cayenne’s body. Really, we’re having a hard time whether to appreciate the beauty of the car or the location of the photoshoot.

Even more luxurious is the custom interior, featuring a double-diamond stitched pattern on the seats in a milk chocolate brown finish. The unique pairing of colors are contrasting, with the darker brown highlighted by a nice clean beige. Of course the wooden accents are a perfect fit while TopCar adorned the headrests with some custom embroidery. Finishing off the entire car are vantage logos on the exterior and in the interior’s door sills.

Hamann plans to make quite the splash at the Geneva Motor Show, announcing that they’ll be revealing a new widebody Porsche Cayenne and widebody Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in early March.

Hamann is well known for their tuning packages for European vehicles, so it’s no surprise that they’ll be following up their tamer body kits on the Cayenne and SLS AMG with more aggressive ones, widening both vehicles’ stance and outfitting them with wider and more aggressive wheels. We can’t wait to see the finished product.
