After they managed to create the lime green R8, the tuners at XXX Performance presented their new project, the Audi R8. The car looks extremely different because of its blue chrome wrap from CFC, but somehow it still features a wide body kit and also a roof scoop, side additions, rear diffuser and even matte black accents.
The car is a sport one and this can be noticed analyzing its H&R coilover kit which can lower it and make it more efficient. The driver can always raise the vehicle without problems only by touching a button. This way, the new Audi R8 has a super flush fitment for the 325/25 Hankook performance tires and for the 20 inch Forgiato rims which are wrapped in 235/50.
The car also has a whole new carbon air box which is definitely an impressive tuning, but also a software tweak which can easily boost the output to 650 bhp. XXX Performance also installed a valve control system for the exhaust system which can adjust the exhaust note depending on the driver’s mood.
The exterior of the car is also an impressive one. The car has new front and rear aprons, V10 side blades and even new side skirts. Larger air inlets were added on the front in order to make them more efficient and good looking. The external rear view mirrors are also made in carbon fiber and they are extremely resistant.
The new Audi R8 can be considered an outright “monster” especially if you carefully analyze its stone deflectors, the broad mudguard and its aggressive GT-X650 wide body kit. The car is also extremely sophisticated and this aspect is easy to notice if you look at its air inlets in the front, but also at its huge openings of the exhaust pipe end which manage to transform the wide body kit into a unique product. You can also enjoy the construction set in a “slender” GT-X600 version. This version does not contain broad mudguard, but it does have side skirts, rear aprons and V10 side blades.
One thing is for sure, this incredible car is definitely a masterpiece and if you are crazy about vehicles then you should really take into consideration the idea of owning this one. It is a very fast car and its sport aspect can help you feel bold and strong. You can find more details about its features and price in Audi stores and all you have to do is visit one of them.
A little while ago, Jaguar has announced its plans to introduce the track-focused but road-legal 2014 XKR-S GT. The vehicle has been showcased at the New York Auto Show this year and it is expected to be part of Jaguar’s future performance lineup.
Developed by the company’s Engineered to Order (ETO) division, the XKR-S GT boasts an aggressive exterior that features a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber canards and carbon fiber wheel arch spats. Furthermore, the ride also received a ventilated hood, a carbon fiber diffuser and a massive rear wing. Last but not least, on the styling side, the ride showcases a set of 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli Corsa tires, 255/35 front and 305/30 rear.
The exterior theme carries over to the interior where we can find leather / Alcantara sport seats, red contrast stitching, aluminum paddle shifters and unique sill plates.
Under the bonnet, the modified Jag has a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that generates 550 HP – 404 kW and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque. All that power goes to the rear wheels thanks to a six-speed automatic transmission and an active electronic differential. This makes the XKR-S GT sprint from 0 to 100 Km/h (62 mph) in around 4 seconds, before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 300 Km/h (186 mph).
The vehicle also received a sport-tuned suspension with revised bushings and new adaptive dampers with a “race-derived twin spring system.” If you’re wondering what’s stopping this Jag on steroids, the engineers also fitted a new traction control system on the ride, along with an improved steering system and a carbon ceramic braking system with discs that measure 398mm front / 380mm rear.
If all you TopCar fans haven’t had enough Porsche for a while, the Russian tuner has presented yet another customization program for the Porsche Cayenne. This time, the ride showcases a red and white finish which was carried over to the interior where we can find dragon stitching on the seats.
On the exterior of the ride, we notice a set of red-trimmed alloy wheels which fit perfectly with the carbon fiber body kit. The new elements include a front spoiler bumper, front fender extensions, rear spoiler, side skirts and hood. Seen from the back, the high-performance SUV showcases a new diffuser with LED brake light strips and fender wings.
On the inside, the custom-made cabin features the same red theme which is meticulously continued with the quilted leather and carbon fiber trim. You can either love it or hate it, there’s no place in between.
There’s no word on what’s trapped under the hood or how fast does the ride sprint from 0 to 100 Km/h neither regarding the check you’d have to sign to get your hands on this ride.
Kahn Design has had a crush on the Porshe Panamera for a while now, and earlier this month, the British auto-tuner has presented a new styling kit for the German four-door coupe.
The project is based on the pre-facelift Panamera that features the V6 3.0-liter diesel engine. On the styling side, the tuner installed front and rear wide vented wheel arches with built-in rear air dams, a 911 Turbo-inspired lower boot wing, liquid gold brake calipers and an upper roof wing.
The vehicle also features LED daytime running lights mounted on the front wheel arches, door entry sill plates in stainless steel and a lowered sports suspension. Seen from the back, the modified Panamera showcases a dual crosshair exhaust system, the Kahn enamel tailgate logo, door entry sill plates in stainless steel and a brand new set of Kahn RS-R wheels (9.5×22 front and 10.5×22 rear) which also fit the original center caps.
The interior cabin boasts quilted and perforated black leather seats with gray Alcantara inserts, piano black trim for the dash and center console, bespoke mats and an Alcantara-wrapped sports steering wheel. Customers can customize the ride just as they want and the tuner offers various interior customization options upon request.
The vehicle depicted here, along with all the enhancements installed by the tuner, is available for 68,875 GBP.

The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG has received an aftermarket kit from KTW Tuning and from the looks of it, the ride is meaner than ever.
Under the bonnet, the naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V8 engine was tweaked to produce an extra 67 HP from the vehicle’s standard 451 HP – 336 kW to 518 HP – 386 kW. There’s no word on the performance figures but the electronic top speed limiter was removed so the ride should be able to reach the 300Km/h mark without too much trouble.
On the styling side, the tuner equipped the Benz with minor features like a black front grille, tinted rear and side windows, as well as a brand new set of 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 235/30 ZR 20 tires at the front and 275/25 ZR20 rubbers at the rear.
The “Black Daimler” upgrade program can be fitted on your C63 AMG for 6,599 EUR (approximately 8,500 USD).

Leib Engineering has recently presented a tuning package for the BMW M3 E92. On the performance side, the vehicle received a high-grade steel exhaust system with a 100-cell HJS catalyzer and an X-pipe with middle silencers. The aforementioned modification along with an ECU upgrade squeezed an extra 50 HP (38 kW) out of the vehicle’s standard 420 HP, resulting in a total output of around 470 HP. The tuner also equipped the M3 with an end muffler and an M-key to control the sound.
All that power had to be kept under control somehow so the brakes were upgraded with a Brembo braking kit that features six-piston calipers and 380 x 32mm discs on the front axle and four-piston calipers with 320 x 28mm discs at the back. The wheels were also replaced with a brand new set of 19-inch BMW M220 forged alloys wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup semi-slicks, measuring 235/35 R19 in the front and 265/30 R19 at the back. Furthermore, the ABS software was also updated, thus giving the Bimmer better braking distances as it was customized to work specifically with semi-slicks.
The vehicle’s transmission couldn’t have been left out of the equation so the guys from Leib Engineering came-up with a software update for the dual clutch gearbox resulting in better shifting times.
On the styling side, the vehicle showcases a couple of discreet enhancements, such as the M3 GT 500 decal on the sides, the carbon fiber trunk spoiler, the carbon fiber mirrors and revised bumpers. The interior received two sport seats and a custom steering wheel with a mini display and gear-shifting lights.

Autocar has brought up some interesting news about Bentley. The British carmaker is allegedly working on a new, more powerful Continental Supersports which should be ready to hit the streets by next year.
The upcoming vehicle is expected to boast a couple of extras over the first-gen-based 2009 model, such as more juice under the bonnet and a more aggressive body kit. As a reminder, the previous version packed a 621 HP twin-turbocharged W-12 engine with 590 lb-ft of torque that was connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission with manumatic shifting. Rumor has it that the 2014 Supersports will receive a similar W12 twin-turbo engine that should generate no less than 650 HP.
Aside from the additional horsepower, the upcoming Bentley will be lighter thanks to a few carbon fiber panels, composite seats and a stripped-out cabin. There’s also a strong possibility that the model will feature only two seats, dumping the extra weight for sharper steering and handling. Other modifications may include an improved suspension, a better exhaust system and an updated version of the all-wheel-drive system.
If you’re thinking “limited edition again”, Bentley officials added that the new Continental Supersports will be available long-term in Bentley’s lineup.
For all you classic-car lovers out there, Atelier Valdeig has revealed its latest project involving a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster (W198). The vehicle received a wide body kit that makes it look a little more sporty.
The project was initially planned to be a replica of the well-known MErc, but in the end it was cancelled. However, the tuner saw potential in the project thus they continued their work on a new look for the 300 SL Roadster.
The vehicle showcases entirely new side panels, bigger wheels that fit perfectly under the wide fenders and a few other improvements like the large air outlets behind the front wheels and the white paint finish with grey accents. Furthermore, the original bulges over the wheel arches have been removed for a cleaner appearance.
The vehicle rides on a set of 16-inch Revolution alloys wrapped in white wall tires, but customers can opt for bigger wheels from Carlsson or wire wheels as seen on muscle cars.
Upon request, the ride can be equipped with the original upright headlamps but the tuner is also offering the round ones mounted on the Gullwing variant. Seen from the back, the 300 SL Roadster can display different types of taillights from the ones that are available, while the exhaust system can get side pipes.

Last week, the guys from Senner Tuning have blown the cover on their latest project involving a Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster.
The vehicle received a discreet makeover, the most notable modifications being the 20-inch Schmidt Revolution wheels wrapped in Hankook S1 Evo tires and the KW coilover suspension that brings the ride closer to the ground.
Under the bonnet, the 6.3-liter V8 engine received a couple of performance upgrades such as high-flow air filters and a sports exhaust system. This enables the power mill to churn out 606 HP – 446 kW and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque instead of the standard 571 HP, this being a 35 HP – 26 kW and 40 Nm (29 lb-ft) increase of power.
Unfortunately, the tuner hasn’t released detailed info about the vehicle’s performance but the modifications should prove enogh for the SLS AMG Roadsted to sprint from 0 to 100 Km/h (62 mph) in less than 4 seconds and reach a top speed of around 300 Km/h.

After a short tease, DMC has presented their new Duro tuning package for the Bentley Continental GT. The tuner has described the ride to be a “mouth watering fashinista on four wheels” and we have to say that they’re not pushing they’re luck.
The Bentley was equipped with a carbon fiber body kit that includes new bumpers and side skirts, a rear wing, a carbon fiber diffuser and a set of 22-inch diamond-forged wheels wrapped in 295/25/22 tires.
Under the bonnet, the engine received a few performance upgrades like an optimized ECU, a titanium exhaust system and high-flow air filters. These changes help the W12 engine produce no less than 672 HP – 494 kW and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque instead of the standard 567 HP – 423 kW, and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). All this power goes to the wheels thanks to the standard 8-speed ZF transmission that helps the model accelerate from 0 to 100Km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
There are no pictures of the interior cabin but customers can opt for a bespoke cabin with premium leather upholstery and carbon fiber or exotic wood trim.
