MERDAD Collection Coupe Based On The Porsche Cayenne Turbo

English coach builder tradition is making a come back. MERDAD has revealed their Collection Coupé, which is based on the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Merdad engineers have done an impressive job. It is not just that the rear doors are gone. The front doors are 20cm longer than the original, rear side walls with the B-pillar are moved further to the rear. Even though the Merdad Coupe looks shorter it has the same wheelbase of 2895 millimetres as the standard Cayenne Turbo.

There are also new safety glass panels, that were developed specifically for this car.

The interior has also received a complete makeover, featuring power seats that slide forward to facilitate access to individual rear seats.

Power on the 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 is increased to 670bhp, enabling the two-door Cayenne accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.4 seconds, while the top speed is in excess of 186mph.

The MERDAD Collection Coupé is built to order with prices starting from £395,000.
