14 Aug 2014 12:23 pm | BMW, Cars

Manhart has released full details and teasing pictures of their upgraded BMW X4 xDrive35d. The tuning garage started working on the six-cylinder 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engine which used to develop 313 PS (230 kW) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque. After a performance kit was installed, the engine now generates 375 PS (276 kW) and 740 Nm (546 lb-ft) of torque. This means faster sprints compared to the stock X4 xDrive35d, which needs 5.2 seconds. The tuner also fitted the…

McLaren 650S Spider by LP Auto Gallery

13 Aug 2014 6:18 pm | Cars, McLaren

The McLaren 650S can easily be considered to be part of a class of its own. It’s fast, it’s beautiful and way more technologically advanced than any ride on the market; although, I’m not so sure about the Koenigsegg. The team at LP Auto Gallery have accepted the challenge of customizing the 650S; the Chinese tuning garage decided to offer up something really different and replaced the standard wheels with a set of forged PUR 5IVE alloys As with most…

Porsche Panamera Turbo S by Caractere Exclusive

13 Aug 2014 12:08 pm | Cars, Porsche

It’s been a while since the Charactere Exclusive garage has released a new Porsche project, but the time has come to enjoy yet another original, possibly quirky custom vehicle. What you’re looking at right now is a modified pre-facelift Porsche Panamera Turbo S, that weird looking four-door super-car coming out of Stuttgart boasting a superb black paint-job and gaping grill. This stingray-looking Porshe is hiding a 4.8-liter V8 engine under the bonnet, which has been re-mapped and now delivers 605…

The people at Liberty Walk provide us with some of the most extreme body-kits for our special rides, especially Nissan GT-R supercars. However, one unique wide-body Liberty Walk BMW M3 Convertible was recently delivered to Vancouver and it’s easy to see that it does not disappoint. No, Sir! Obviously, this car was meant to be admired, since it’s low riding height is as much as near 0 mm. This is the first BMW E92 M3 Convertible featuring a Liberty Walk…

Mazda MX-5 Super 200 by BBR

12 Aug 2014 12:25 pm | Cars, Mazda

The lightweight roadster from Mazda is simply enjoyable. The MX-5’s mechanical simplicity and front-engined rear-wheel drive is one of the easiest ways of explaining why it has become the world’s best-selling two-seat convertible sports car. However, it’s not as powerful as most of us would like;the most powerful engine in the range is a 2-liter naturally aspirated MZR inline four-cylinder engine, developing 160 horsepower. So, how about working on that? Way ahead of you. British performance tuner BBR has developed…

Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG by GAD Motors

11 Aug 2014 6:58 pm | Cars, Mercedes-Benz

Whenever I hear of a new Mercedes A-classe tuning project, I get all excited. I think the little German car is somewhat unappreciated, although its looks and performances deserve the attention. The team at GAD Motors agrees, which is why they’ve developed a power boost program for the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG. In its standard form, the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine develops 360 PS (265 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft). It should be enough, right? Wrong! By remapping the…

Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 by GeigerCars

GeigerCars has introduced a new performance package for the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. As if the almighty and menacing looking American muscle car wasn’t scary enough, the Geiger Camaro Z/28 has been equipped with a mysterious performance package which enables the 7.0-liter V8 engine to develop p620 PS (456 kW) and 725 Nm (534 lb-ft) of torque – an increase of 108 PS (79 kW) and 73 Nm (53 lb-ft). It’s mysterious due to the fact that the tuning garage has…

Audi R8 by xXx Performance

8 Aug 2014 6:57 pm | Audi, Cars, Featured

xXx Performance has been working on an Audi R8, beautifully modifying it into this Need for Speed-looking supercar. The Bochum-based tuning garage isn’t at its first custom Audi job, with similar awesome projects being rolled out their garage doors in the last years. This particular ride now features a wider body, 40 mm wider at the front and 70 mm at the back and the stock wheels were replaced with concave 20-inch FS-Line split-design orange alloys courtesy of Schmidt and…

Audi S1 by ABT

8 Aug 2014 12:00 pm | Audi, Cars

If you find the Audi S1 boring, the ABT tuning garage is here for you. Although the stock Audi features 228 hp (231 PS), the tuner’s kit enables the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine to develop 306 hp (310 PS) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) instead of 370 Nm (273 lb-ft). There’s no official numbers on acceleration, but I’m guessing the German car will now go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) way faster than 5.8 seconds. Aside from the the…

Audi Q5 by Khan Design

7 Aug 2014 6:11 pm | Audi, Cars

I’m not sure if the Audi Q5 is what I’d consider ground breaking, but even if the Q5 looks like just another Audi it’s actually easy on the eyes. As with every model of the German manufacturer’s products, this too can be transformed into a much more butch-looking machine, as the team at Khan Design so efficiently demonstrates with their release of an exterior styling pack for the SUV, called Wide Track. As the name suggests, the Audi now features…
