Several weeks back we reported on the very first Porsche Panamera race car, built by N.Technology. Now the team has unveiled the completed Panamera S touring car, ready to compete in the Italian Supercars series. Making 450-hp from its naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V8 engine and weighing 2,900 lbs, the N.Technology car driven by Fabrizio Giovanardi was on pole for its first ever race, and even managed to place at the top of the podium, two seconds ahead of the nearest competitor – a BMW M3 race car.

For those not familiar with the amazing Italian Superstars series see the video after the jump for some action from a previous season, with plenty of V8 heavy metal gunning for the checkered flag:

With AutoGuide from its launch, Colum previously acted as Editor-in-Chief of Modified Luxury & Exotics magazine where he became a certifiable car snob driving supercars like the Koenigsegg CCX and racing down the autobahn in anything over 500 hp. He has won numerous automotive journalism awards including the Best Video Journalism Award in 2014 and 2015 from the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). Colum founded Geared Content Studios, VerticalScope's in-house branded content division and works to find ways to integrate brands organically into content.
