New Porsche Cayenne for Heidi Montag

Things seem to be going well for the Spencer Pratt - Heidi Montag couple. After Pratt received a ‘68 Camaro SS from his beloved blonde wife as a wedding gift earlier this year, we found out that it was now Heidi’s turn to get a new ride. Unfortunately, as much as we like what she chose to drive, we cannot say it fits her personality.

It was at the SBE Group headquarters in Beverly Hills that pseudo-star Heidi Montag showed off her new Porsche Cayenne GTS, reported.

Heidi and her sister-in-law, Stephanie Pratt, were there to film a segment of the popular TV show, The Hills. As you can see, it pays well to have your own reality show, maybe one of the few areas untouched by the world economic crisis. However, if last year, the couple reportedly spent $400,000 on a white Rolls Royce Phantom, this time Heidi spent ‘only’ around $70,000 for the Cayenne.

Technically a Cayenne for the track, the GTS is based on the S model, with improved suspension, brakes and more horsepower. Porsche themselves have said that the GTS model handles better than the much more powerful Turbo and Turbo S Cayennes.

It is also the only Cayenne apart from the base model available with a manual transmission as standard.The GTS is powered with a 405 hp 4.8 liter V8 and features a sport suspension and 21-inch wheels. The Porsche Cayenne GTS has a 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) time of 5.7 seconds.

At the end of March 2009, Porsche unveiled the Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3, an exclusive model to be produced in a limited series of 1,000 units only. The model comes in a single paintwork color, Lava Grey Metallic, featuring design stripes at the side and on the engine compartment lid, bi-xenon headlights, dark privacy glazing on the rear window and the “Cayenne GTS“ badge painted in black with a red “S” at the rear.
