Roock may not be as well known as some of its rival German tuning houses but the company does have a number of important motorsport titles under its belt including a win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Roock’s latest creation, the RST 600 LM, has been built to celebrate the 10th anniversary of that Le Mans victory and will soon be available for sale in both the U.S. and Europe.

The RST 600 LM is based on the 997 Porsche 911 Turbo and includes a pair of modified twin-turbochargers, a titanium exhaust, custom fuel maps and new engine management software. These upgrades combined with the 911 Turbo’s flat-six engine result in a power output of 602hp (450kW) and maximum torque of 611lb-ft (827Nm).

Accelerating from 0-60mph takes 3.1 seconds, as opposed to 3.6 seconds for the stock model, and top speed has now been bumped to 212mph.

To match the extra power, Roock engineers have added a carbon racing clutch, an adjustable sports suspension system, new cross drilled and vented 380mm rotors with chunky eight-piston calipers and a custom four-pad brake design. Other features include a full bodykit with integrated diffusers and aluminum racing wheels with carbon-fiber Roock center caps.

The interior has been fitted with carbon-fiber trim, a modified center console with oil and temperature gauges, a custom engine starter button, and racing buckets with four-point harnesses.

Roock currently has display studios set up in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Germany, to sell whole cars, but its performance parts are available for sale globally.
