Supercharged Challenger SRT8Speedfactory 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.

Vath V63RS ClubsportThere 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.

BMW M6 HurricaneG-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.

Bentley Continental GT Turned Into ASI Tetsu GTR

Tetsu GTRWe 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 »
