NISMO has released the details that we have been waiting for concerning all of the upgrades that they have done to the R35 Nissan GT-R. The parts that were used were the usual OEM fitment and quality that we have come to expect and which help to focus on weight reduction and tighter handling. Read the rest of this entry »

ABT is taking on Volkswagen’s brand new Passat Comfort Coupe (CC) and giving it more power. I think it’s safe to say this is something that none of us will argue with. There is nothing wrong with the styling (although it could use a few adjustments) – but we agree with ABT in focusing on what’s under the hood first. Read the rest of this entry »
An Escalade is great – but an ubber-Escalade is even better. Becker and STRUT work their magic on cars like this and the end result is the Cadillac ESV limo. The new limo has leather interior from the floor all the way to the ceiling. Other features include, broadband internet, wall mounted computer screen, and a theatre system. Check out the press release for more details. Read the rest of this entry »
Speedfactory has taken possession of the new Dodge Challenger and created something new – which they have dubbed the Supercharged Challenger SRT8. It is true that we have seen many SRT8 tuning jobs before – but this one seems to beat them all out with its new 6.1 liter V8 HEMI engine.
According to Speedfactory the new car has the ability to produce 495 horses in the rear tires and can push out a total of 600 when revving off. Consumers are pleased with the new engine – which gives them the ability to go faster then what they could do in the normal version of the car.
There are plenty of tuners who are willing to work on a Mercedes-Benz (BRABUS, Carlsson, Lorinser, and Kleemann) and we have seen much of their work. However, we were surprised to see a new tuner come rolling into town and take on the C63 AMG.
The tuner is called Väth and the car that they have put together is the V63RS Clubsport. Väth essentially leaves the exterior untouched and focuses on the performance including an upgrade of the V8 to 585 bhp and 509 lb-ft torque that will power the car to a top speed of 202 mph.
Other upgrades available include a sport suspension, high performance brakes, 19-inch wheels, and sport seats. Complete cars are available at a hefty 125,000 Euros, although components can be purchased individually, as well.
G-Power is going to be tuning up the M6 Hurricane by giving it a 5.0 liter V10 engine – which is similar to the one that they gave the M5 Hurricane. Of course there are a few things that are different.
The twin blowers on the car have been set for a lower boost – which is only 6 psi when you compare it to the 10 psi of the M5. However, it still can produce a good 635 bhp at 7300 rpm and 469 pound-foot of torque. This gives the car the ability to go from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph.

We love most tuning jobs because they help to add power and to increase the aggressive look of the car. However, when it comes to this Bentley Continental GT we have to say that we are less then pleased.
This Continental GT was used to create this Tetsu GTR. The Japanese tuner ASI decided that it needed some sprucing up and gave it a new rear and front apron, trunk and spoiler, exposed carbon fiber hood, and a custom paint job that has been painted with flowers! I think we can all agree that the flowers need to be removed. Read the rest of this entry »
PPI is known for tuning up Audi’s in a way that no other tuner can. The last one they got their hands on was the Audi R8. As to be expected they managed to add more power and give it a look that every consumer would envy. Now they are going to be working on the brand new Audi TT.
The package for this second generation coupe is being called the PS and will offer a wide range of upgrades to the engine, suspension, body, and exhaust. Read the rest of this entry »
Novitec is famous for tuning some of the more high end vehicles from Ferrari and Alfa – but that doesn’t exclude them from their next project – the Fiat 500. They have produced several different mods that are available to anyone who owns the 500 that can leave your ride looking sportier and more powerful than before. Read the rest of this entry »
