Ferrari FF by Wheelsandmore

Monday, March 31, 2014

Wheelsandmore has prepared an upgrade kit for the Ferrari FF. The program begins with a new set of 6 Sporz² ultra-light forged wheels measuring 9.5x21 and 12x22 inches (front / rear) wrapped around in Pirelli P Zero Nero rubbers. There's also a proprietary stainless steel exhaust system featuring remote-operable valve flaps. The tuner says they are working on a new coilover and springs for the FF's suspension which should bring the car closer to the ground by 25mm (0.98 inches).
The stage 1 power boost costs 3,782 EUR and includes a remapped ECU and chip tuning which lifts output from 660 HP (485 kW) and 504 lb-ft (683 Nm) to 684 HP (503 kW) and 520 lb-ft (705 Nm). Stage 2 is available for 9,244 EUR and increases power to 700 HP (515 kW) and 527 lb-ft (715 Nm) thanks to the aforementioned exhaust and an ECU upgrade.

McLaren MP4-12C Spider Terso by FAB Design

FAB Design has applied its Terso body kit to the McLaren MP4-12C Spider, following last year's coupe version. The car seen in these photos was unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon showcasing a body kit featuring bigger air intakes, updated side air intakes, side skirts, diffuser and rear bumper. It has a new rear spoiler which is installed over the top of the stock unit. There's also a front splitter mounted below the windscreen, just like in the coupe. It sits on 20-inch FAB-Design Evolution forged wheels covered by Dunlop SP SportMaxx tires. Other changes include a proprietary stainless steel sports exhaust system and a three-chamber carbon tail pipe which have increased the output from 616 hp (460 kW) to 680 hp (507 kW). Most likely, other hardware changes (like an ECU upgrade) were necessary to reach this output.
Thanks to these tweaks, the McLaren MP4-12C Spider Terso reaches 62 mph (100 km/h) in three seconds and can hit a top speed of 213 mph (343 km/h). FAB Design said they plan on making only 10 units.

Jaguar F-Type by Arden

Revealed only several months ago, the Jaguar F-Type is already an interesting project for Arden as they are developing an upgrade program for the British roadster. After working on a body kit for the new Range Rover, Arden is now focusing on the Jaguar F-Type. They start off with a power boost for the flagship V8 S version which in its standard version produces 495 HP (364 kW) but after Arden works its magic the engine puts out 550 HP (404 kW). They are also developing an upgrade kit for the V6-powered versions.
The F-Type in these two photos is wearing a British Racing Green paint and comes with 20-inch Sportline alloys and the optional high-performance braking system.

Porsche Panamera by Regula Exclusive

Regula Exclusive has developed a body kit made from carbon fiber for the Porsche Panamera Turbo. Located near Dortmund, the German tuner is also offering this kit in a flexible polyester-polyurethane mixture but for 7,498 EUR it is available in a carbon fiber variant which can be optionally painted.
The kit consists of new front and rear aprons, along with custom side skirts. Compatible with the stock fastening points, the kit is easy to assemble as no changes have to be done to the four-door coupe.
Schmidt Revolution provided the 10x22 and 11.5x22 wheels and a power kit for the Panamera Turbo which costs 1,698 EUR and increases output to 605 HP (445 kW), up from the standard 500 HP (368 kW).

BMW M3 by RS Racing

RS-Racingteam has introduced a new tuning program for the BMW M3. Designed to deliver "more adrenaline for your senses," the RS-M3 is a track-focused model that features an adjustable sports suspension, a rear spoiler and 19-inch alloy wheels. While the exterior is fairly restrained, the cabin loses the rear seat, carpeting and door pads. RS Racing then adds a roll cage, carbon fiber door panels and sports seats with six-point harnesses. Thanks to these modifications, the RS-M3 weighs 190 kg (419 lbs) less than the standard model.
Under the hood, the 4.0-liter V8 engine has been tuned to produce 450 HP (331 kW) and 431 Nm (318 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 14.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 299 km/h (186 mph). The RS-M3 is currently available and pricing starts at €80,000 ($106,760). 


Mercedes-Benz SLR by CUT48 and Edo Competition

The Mercedes-Benz SLR has received a complete foil wrap from CUT48 and a power boost from Edo Competition. Specialized in providing foil wraps, CUT48 says this blue and black gloss wrapping for the SLR is available for a steep 4,350 EUR (approximately 5,800 USD), but for a person who owns such a car money is no object.
Aside from the new look, the hand-built AMG V8 engine has received a power increase from the standard 626 HP (460 kW) to 722 HP (531 kW) courtesy of Edo Competition. The torque figure has also jumped from 580 lb-ft (780 Nm) to 656 lb-ft (890 Nm). This was possible by remapping the ECU, compressor tweaks, installing a new exhaust manifold and customizing the intake system.
As a result, the supercar is able to hit 200 km/h (124 mph) in less than 10 seconds and it will keep on going until it reaches an electronically limited top speed of 345 km/h (214 mph).

Audi SQ5 TDI by B&B

The Audi SQ5 TDI has received more power courtesy of German tuner B&B. The standard version of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 TDI engine produces 313 HP (230 kW) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque. B&B considered it not enough so they prepared a three-stage upgrade kit which begins with a minor increase in boost pressure of 0.15 bar and revised electronics, increasing output to 340 HP (250 kW) and 537 lb-ft (728 Nm). Stage 1 is priced at 1,498 EUR.
Stage 2 costs 1,698 EUR and includes additional electronics optimization which lifts power to 365 HP (268 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm). Lastly, Stage 3 is 4,950 EUR and brings custom injection components, new intercooler, air ducts and intake paths. After making the changes, the V6 TDI is capable of delivering 395 HP (290 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm).
Thanks to these tweaks, the Audi SQ5 TDI completes the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 4.7 seconds (0.5s quicker) and can reach a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h), up from 155 mph (250 km/h).
The spring set (398 EUR) lowers the sporty crossover by 25mm and reduces body roll. There's also a custom adjustable coilover suspension for 1,698 EUR and a stainless steel exhaust system (1,950 EUR).

Mercedes SLS AMG by Vilner

The Mercedes SLS AMG has always been one of the more luxurious supercars, but that hasn't stopped Vilner from trying to spruce up the model's interior. Apparently built for a customer named Sergey Kries, the SLS has been outfitted with a leather and Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel as well as a leather-covered storage pocket between the seats.
While the styling changes are minor, the car has also been equipped with a bespoke trunk that features two-tone Alcantara upholstery and an embroidered AMG badge.

DMC F12 Berlinetta SPIA

Thursday, March 27, 2014

DMC has prepared an upgrade program for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. They were able to lift the output of the V12 6.2-liter engine from 740 HP (544 kW) to 764 HP (562 kW) by installing a custom titanium exhaust system which enables the supercar to reach a maximum speed of almost 350 km/h (217 mph). The next order of business was to develop a carbon fiber body kit that makes the F12 look even more aggressive. The stock hood has been replaced by a carbon fiber variant, while the roof scoop is also a novelty. There's also a prominent new lip splitter which DMC says it improves road stability, along with a new set of side skirts using a pair of diffuser plates, while at the back it gets a 599XX-inspired spoiler wing. As a final touch, DMC has installed a new set of 21/22-inch (front/rear) alloys with Pirelli Sport Tires measuring 255/30 and 332/25, respectively.
