Exterior

The grand makeover is definitely prominent on the exterior of Cayman R1 but Delavilla has put in equal effort in upgrading the performance of the machine. Porsche Cayman R1 now sports a wide carbon-fiber body kit that is sure to turn heads. The carbon fiber body will substantially reduce the weight of the car.

With revamped front as well as rear bumpers and side panels and all new fenders, the Porsche Cayman R1 has become something more than just a sports car. The side panels resemble those of Carrera GT and have air inlets so as to cool down internal mechanics. Addition of fatter bumpers and wider wheel wells have widened the front by 4.7 inches and the rear side by 7.1 inches.

Now that the Delavilla Porsche Cayman R1 has a much wider rear in comparison to the factory form, Delavilla has also added wide alloy wheels painted in the same color as that of the car’s body. 4 vertical exhaust pipes are housed by the rear side of the car. Delavilla has also installed LED lights that run during daytime to keep up with most recent models.
