PostHeaderIcon Check out the 2020 Alpina B7, the World’s Fastest Sedan

If you think the new 2020 BMW 7-Series grille is too big, but you still want the car, then why not buy the most powerful and fastest version of it so that people don’t have a chance to see your car’s monumental nostrils? That version is the reworked 7-Series called the 2020 Alpina B7. It was just revealed last week in Palm Springs and is touted as the world’s fastest three-box sedan.

PostHeaderIcon For $695 Hondata Will Give your 2019 Acura RDX the Mid-Range Torque it Deserves

Acura revamped theRDX last year and gave it a more aggressive face coupled with a sporty profile. All that is great, but the new car is lacking when it comes to mid-range torque. That’s where Hondata jumps in with its Flashpro system that gives you the ability to extract 45 more pound-feet of torque at the peak of the curve over the 280 you get from Acura.

Mid-range torque is a very important aspect, especially when we’re talking about SUVs. The RDX is Acura’s compact crossover offering and, while it does offer 28 pound-feet of torque more than the previous RDX with its 3.5-liter V-6, there’s still room for improvement. Hondata has already released ECU kits for the Civic and Accord, and now it’s the RDX’s time to shine with extra torque and, also, more power across the band.

PostHeaderIcon This Fastback Ford F-150 by Aero-X is as Ridiculous as it is Awesome

Did you ever look at the existing pickup bed caps and bemoan the fact that they don’t make trucks more aerodynamic? Michigan Vehicle Solutions thought it’s time for something new on the market of bed caps, so they’ve looked at the louvered rear windows of ’60s and ’70s Mustangs and came up with the Aero X fiberglass cap that makes the Ford F-150 attract more eyes than ever before.

Your first reaction may be, ’Why?’, followed by a typical, ’Who are these people?’ Well, this company, based in Southgate, Michigan, “works and performs testing & services in conjunction with the OEMs in the testing & custom vehicle build arena,” according to its own website. You’ll get why they thought sticking a sloping 260-pound cap in the back of Ford’s F-150 is a good idea when you’ll see the crazy renders of a Dodge Charger Daytona-esque body kit for the Dodge Challenger on the About Us page. This, then, looks mundane in comparison.

PostHeaderIcon This Rendering From Prior Design Represents the Future of Supra Tuning

The 2020 Toyota Supra was long overdue and, as Akio Toyoda himself admitted, was one of the worst kept secrets in the automotive industry. It is, then, no wonder that as soon as the car was finally unveiled, tuning companies started working on body kits. One of these companies includes Prior Design who presented some renders of an upcoming body kit for the 2020 Toyota Supra.

Remember us talking about how the fifth-generation Supra has way too many fake vents Prior Design enlarged some of them and made others functional while also adding some Rocket Bunny-style flared arches and an elegant wing atop the ducktail in the back. It may not be the best tuning kit you’ll ever see for the Z4’s brother, but it sure is one of the first to emerge.

PostHeaderIcon RUF Porsche CTR2

RUF builds some of the fastest modified Porsches in the world, cars altered so much that they are barely Porsches when the process reaches the end and the car is ready for delivery. Such a car is the CTR2, the replacement of the Yellowbird, a 993-based monster that could reach 215 mph in 1995, beating anything but the McLaren F1.

If you’re asked to name a few really fast cars of the ’90s images of the Lamborghini Diablo, the Bugatti EB110, or the Jaguar XJ220 would probably spring in your mind. Well, how many of you would think of a modified Porsche that could beat anything that Zuffenhausen had to offer, even the ludicrous race-bred 911 GT1? Yes, it’s the product of a tuner, but the cars built by Alois Ruf Jr., and his men have always been impeccably well-built. They also have an enviable record of humiliating established supercars over the years. The CTR2 is the bridge between the pure Nurburgring-slashing CTR and the mid-engined CTR3 that takes the ideas of the Carrera GT to another level.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Amarok by Arctic Trucks

Remember the name ‘Arctic Trucks’? They are the same folks whose claim-to-fame was when Jeremy Clarkson and James May drove a customized Toyota Hilux at the North Pole. This company is back in news and this time for working on the Volkswagen Amarok pickup truck. Arctic Trucks calls is the ‘Icelandic-spec’ version of the VW Amarok.

PostHeaderIcon Suzuki Jimny Black Bison Edition by Wald International

The new Suzuki Jimny became an instant icon, an instant conversation starter, and an instant problem for Suzuki. The Japanese company simply cannot cope with the demand. The production facilities are working at their absolute limits, but there is no way for Suzuki to produce enough to meet the demand. That’s a problem.

Nevertheless, those produced are already being trashed somewhere on some off-road terrain. Some of them, however, managed to reach the garages of the most recognizable tuners out there. First, we were treated to that awesome Liberty Walk modification that basically turned the Suzuki Jimny into a baby Mercedes-Benz G-Class. At least in the virtual world, but I believe one can order it right now. On the other hand, we got an all-new look at another modified Suzuki Jimny. This one is done up by Wald International, a Japanese company known for its Black Bison Edition line of modifications. That’s exactly what the new Jimny received – and it’s awesome.

PostHeaderIcon Custom Mercedes-Maybach V-Class – an Exceptional Coach – Exclusive Images and Video

What you are seeing on these photos is a specially prepared Mercedes-Benz V-Class rigged out with Maybach gear. Of course, it is not a stock production model, but a finely customized V-Class probably produced for the French coach-limousine service – CLS Paris – where it is currently in service. This particular Maybach V-Class was filmed some time ago on the streets of Paris, and within the CLS Paris coach service, it complements the fleet with a couple of other high-end cars – including the equally black Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

In contrast to any other stock V-Class, this particular one comes with a fully customized interior – the same quality found in Mercedes-Maybach cars. That’s what makes this particular V-Class that incredible in the world of cars.

PostHeaderIcon Want an All-Electric Ford Mustang? Aviar Motors in Russia Might Hook You Up

The market for restomods is growing as we see more and more cars modified with a modern twist. Now, there’s a new wave of constructors that try to tease you with a slightly altered recipe: a classic-looking car with modern, eco-friendly, propulsion. One fine example of this is the Aviar Motors R67 built in Russia that, as the name subtly suggests, strongly resembles a Ford Mustang from the year 1967.

Have you ever thought of buying a Mustang replica from a Russian company? What about a Mustang replica from a Russian company that’s also electric and has over 700 pound-feet of torque? As strange as it may sound, Aviar Motors is planning to build just that. This new start-up company has showcased its plans for a retro-looking EV that’s nothing more than a slightly modified 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback. As far as we’re concerned, that’s not a bad starting point at all, as long as Ford agrees with the whole thing.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M5 Touring F11 By Carbonfiber Dynamics

I’ve wondered for long – what the heck is a sleeper? Can any of the modern performance-laden cars be sleepers? I think it’s possible, but only if you inject it with a proper amount of power. This time I am referring to a rather unusual entry in the world of modified cars – the Carbonfiber Dynamics BMW M5 Estate – an Estate with a power greater than that of a Porsche 918
Spyder.
Yup, this BMW M5 Estate has an engine under its bonnet with 900 horsepower.

The Germans! What can I say!?

PostHeaderIcon 10 New Cars That are Begging to be Modified

Out of all those new cars out there, which ones have more promise that is untapped by the manufacturer? These cars are already good, but at the same time, they could be significantly improved with sometimes minimal modifications. In other words, they have what it takes but just need to be honed that little bit more to achieve their full potential.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Now Pay to Have an EV Powertrain Bolted into Your Classic Aston Martin

Although a noble thought by Aston Martin, this basically kills the whole point. Wondering what we are talking about? Aston Martin Works plans to protect the classic cars in the future by allowing them to live as Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs). It has produced the first model under its plan called the Heritage EV Programme.

PostHeaderIcon The 7 Cars We Want To See With a Hellephant Swap

In case you were unaware, FCA stole the show this year at SEMA. The big headline was the Hellephant, a 1,000-horsepower monster that’s looking to curb stomp the competition as the most powerful crate engine ever offered by an OEM. We’re so excited about it that we decided to put together a list of cars that we think need a Hellephant under the hood, with entries ranging from the obvious to the slightly insane.

Of course, it’s worth mentioning that the Hellephant is designed for either off-road applications or smog-exempt pre-1976 vehicles. Regardless, we’re sticking to our guns on this one in the hopes that one of you crazy wrench-turners gets inspired to create one of these wild beasts.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Parades New Upgrades from Mopar in L.A.

The long-anticipated Jeep Gladiator, the company’s first pickup truck in 26 years, made its global debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Not surprisingly, Mopar has already created a range of parts and accessories for the truck and showcased them on a Rubicon model. The most important of which include a two-inch lift kit, spray-in bed liner, and a truck bed storage system.

Mopar has been providing parts and accessories for Chrysler and Fiat cars for decades now, and it also helped Jeep develop quite a few concept vehicles. Naturally, the Gladiator had to be included now that Jeep finally offers a pickup truck. Mopar presented 20 products for the Gladiator in Los Angeles, but more are definitely underway. Let’s have a look at what you can order once the Gladiator goes on sale.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Le Mans Classic Clubsport by Paul Stephens

Porsche specialist Paul Stephens recently unveiled his latest creation called the Le Mans Classic Clubsport. It is a bespoke Porsche 911 based around the Porsche 911 G-series chassis and remodeled to take the shape of possibly the most astonishing restomod you can imagine.

I know that right now the Singer name from Rob Dickinson rings in your ears, but this is a slightly different piece of engineering compared with anything coming from Dickinson kitchen. Now, I was particularly curious to find out what actually makes this Le Mans Classic Clubsport so special, so I reached out to Paul Stephens who told me a thing or two about his newest car.

First of all, let me tell you that Paul is a proper car guy. Not only that, he is a proper Porsche enthusiast. All the way back from 9 years of age. I am not joking. His first miles were in a Land Rover he drove when he was 6. Three years later, he sat in a 911. A friend of his dad lent him the keys, and he just went for it. Love in an instant!

That was the start of a long love story that got him into race cars, into Porsches and now into making exceptional restomods based around the Porsche G-series chassis.

PostHeaderIcon Rolls-Royce Phantom by Mansory

I am about to tell you about the Rolls-Royce Phantom garnished with decorative pieces by Mansory and then jeweled by an effortless push of 602 thoroughbreds. It is Mansory’s way of going above and beyond. Above and beyond anything one may consider customary, appropriate, or even becoming. It is as bizarre as Halloween cosplay and as exquisite as a ball gown. It is controversy in understanding, and harmony in dissonance. It is the Rolls-Royce Phantom by Mansory.

I would argue that gliding through the atmosphere, carried by a swoosh of hot air, is as close to freedom as one may get. Such a dignified spectacle can be almost recreated on the roads as well. Riding in the back seats of the Rolls-Royce Phantom is more comfortable for sure, but the sheer exquisiteness of its cabin pursued by a definite insulation from the outside world is as equally liberating as gliding, although fundamentally opposite in its execution. That is what Rolls-Royce is all about – being as free as a bird, but in a way, some may even call profligacy.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom by Masonry is profligate and lecherous. But it is impeccable and irresistible much the same.

PostHeaderIcon This Kia Stinger Wears its Widebody Kit Well

The Kia Stinger has received a lot of attention since it debuted some two years ago and while at first the attention was mainly due to it being a new model that nobody knew anything about, now it gets attention specifically because people know it’s actually pretty good. But for those that think that the factory look just isn’t aggressive enough, now there’s a bold widebody kit that completely transforms its look.

PostHeaderIcon Pogea Racing Maserati GranCabrio

German tuning company Pogea Racing crafted an all-new tuning kit for the Maserati GranCabrio, and consequently, for the Gran Turismo. The dated Italian sports car from Maserati is on its last legs on the market. We can expect discontinuation as early as next year, but that did not stop Pogea Racing from creating a one of a kind tuning kit for what is, probably, one of the most beautiful designs in the history of the automobile. Based around the GranCabrio, the Pogea Racing kit includes suspension tweaks, an engine upgrade, and interior modifications. External body kit? None of that I am afraid; however, the Maserati GranCabrio and the GranTurismo are already astoundingly beautiful.

PostHeaderIcon Watch This Lightly Tuned McLaren 720S Run the Quarter Mile in Less Than 10 Seconds

The McLaren 720S is an absolute beast right out of the box, with nearly $300K worth of go-fast awesomeness on offer for anyone with the bank to back it. That said, for a little extra outlay, you can extract even more from it, granted you know where to turn for a tune.

This particular example comes from EKanoo Racing, a tuner based out of the Middle East that specializes in building seriously quick drag racing machinery. This McLaren is no different, however, the mods are very light, with just an ECU retune to pull a bit more power from the mid-mounted, twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8.

EKanoo Racing declined to say exactly how much more power this tuned 720S is making, but unleashed down the 1320, it manages a very fast 9.605 at 146 mph. Compare that to the stocker’s time of 10 seconds flat at 140 mph, and it’s obvious this thing is laying down some extra mid-range muscle.

As a reminder, the stock McLaren 720S produces 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, all of which is routed to the rear wheels by way of seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The sprint to 60 mph takes less than 3 seconds, while top speed is rated at 212 mph.

The run itself takes place in Bahrain at the Bahrain International Circuit, the same track used for the annual Bahrain Grand Prix Formula 1 race. The whole clip is just 30 seconds long, but seeing this thing move at full chat is a delight all the same. Make sure to listen for the high-pitched whine as the 720S accelerates, which apparently are the super-sticky tires making maximum thrust against the tacky track surface.

PostHeaderIcon WTF? Strange, Crazy, Amazing, and Downright Stupid Things at SEMA 2018

You can pretty much see anything and everything automotive related at the SEMA show. From pure-bred muscle cars, wild exotics, monster trucks, and full-on race cars. SEMA has something for everyone to love. On the other side of that spectrum, there is a lot that may not be to your taste. From the crazy awesome to the crazy clueless, here you can find a bit of each.
