The damage does not stop there. The engine of this car is blocked, the dashboard no longer lights up… In short, there was no hope of seeing this Cayman drive again. That’s not knowing RS Dynamics, the tuning shop team from Solingen, Germany. She launched “Project Seacret” aimed at repairing everything down to the smallest detail. Even if we do not know the cost of the final repairs, we must salute the audacity of such an initiative.

If we are to believe the mechanics, all the electronics in the car are good to throw awaybecause it suffered corrosion following flooding.

The interior of the passenger compartment must be changed and the engine must be rebuilt after being dismantled. You should know that the GT4 RS is the version of the Cayman developing 500 horsepowerwith a 4.0 liter engine. She goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. Regarding the top speed, it is 315 km/h.
