Singapore - Out of the box, the previous generation Boxster S already packs a mean punch, its 3.4-litre naturally-aspirated flat six cranks out a heady 310hp with 360Nm of torque for a 0-100 timing of 5.2 seconds thanks to a slick shifting 7-speed PDK gearbox.

Round that off with a mid-engine rear-wheel drive layout and you have probably one of the best driving machines on the market. But of course that was not enough for Prem Roy, being a petrol-head he did a few tweaks to his Boxster S that made it that much better!

For performance he installed race headers and did a custom tune to really squeeze out the potential from the boxer engine. The suspension too was swopped for a set of Ohlin coilovers.

With added power came the need for better braking and Roy got a set of Brembo GT 6-pot fronts and 4-pot rears, these were hooked up to Ferodo 2500 brake pads and Goodridge stainless steel braided hoses.

Encasing those massive lime green Brembos are custom HRE forged wheels wrapped in Michelin N Spec tyres. Even the audio in the Porsche was changed with Prem Roy changing the factory unit for a Pioneer one that features an imported optic adapter to draw power from a Bose amplifier that powers the upgraded RS audio 3-way speakers.

Last but not least, the aesthetics of the Boxster had to be souped up too with new 918 tail-lights which were indented from the America, a Lava Orange paint job, the cabin panels were sprayed piano black and finally Italian hazelnut brown Nappa leather for the seats and trims.
