PostHeaderIcon Watch the First 2JZ-Swapped 2020 Toyota Supra Tear Ass Just a Week Before It Burst Into Flames

When Toyota revealed the new fifth-generation Supra at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, fans had mixed reactions. While some were ecstatic for the return of the nameplate after two decades on the shelf, others felt that the BMW-sourced six-cylinder engine was a disservice to such a legendary performer. Of course, the logical next step was obvious – swap in the venerable 2JZ engine! And that’s exactly what Japanese pro drifter Daigo Saito did, as documented in this two-minute video.

PostHeaderIcon Lister Unveils Roofless LFT-666, Calls It LFT-C

split789497

The popularity of Lister’s LFT-666, formerly known as the Thunder, prompted the British outfit to create the LFT-C as an attention-grabber while it works on the Knobbly. The LFT-C features “an almost unlimited options list,” packs the same 657 horsepower V-8 as the fixed-head version, and it costs $182,424. Unlike the coupe, though, only 10 LFT-Cs will ever be made.

Lister seems to be doing better than ever. The company based in Cambridge, England currently assembles the LFT-666 Coupe and the F-Pace-based LFP that’s one of the fastest SUVs money can buy in Europe. More recently, CEO Lawrence Whittaker announced plans to revive the legendary Knobbly nameplate on a retro-chic two-seater sports car with Ferrari-rivaling output, and a rebirth of the Storm is also on the cards in the future. It is, then, surprising that Lister found time to create the LFT-C at all.

PostHeaderIcon Mountune’s Newest Kit Boosts the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST’s Output to 222 horsepower

The 2019 Ford Fiesta ST is one of the best hot hatchbacks in its size and price brackets, but with just 197 horsepower from the factory, the little Blue Oval pocket rocket can certainly handle more power. For those interested, Ford specialists Mountune have launched an upgrade kit that boosts the Fiesta ST’s power output by more than 20 horsepower. In a car this small, folks, you will feel it.

PostHeaderIcon McLaren 720S Spider by MSO

The McLaren 720S Spider is the roofless version of one of the most revered models in McLaren’s Super Series. McLaren’s Special Operations division (MSO) brought a one-off 720S Spider to the Geneva Motor Show to show off the kind of modifications possible with a run-of-the-mill 720S Spider. The result is a tri-color beast with tons of exposed carbon fiber.

Are we getting to the point when personalization has gone too far? Henry Ford used to say that you could have any color on your Ford Model T as long as the color was black. Now, every luxury manufacturer brags about its “nearly infinite” choices, and depending on how deep are your pockets, each is willing to open before you a whole world of options. The MSO division offers multiple worlds, one for each of McLaren’s models, and the 720S Spider has just joined this exclusive group at the Geneva Motor Show.

PostHeaderIcon CX-Racing is Developing a 2JZ Swap Kit for Those Not Happy with the BMW Engine in the 2020 Toyota Supra

Some Toyota Supra aficionados are strongly criticizing the all-new coupe that revives the nameplate, calling it derivative and pointing towards its co-development process with BMW. Some are even criticizing the fact that the new Supra has BMW engines – for those people, a solution is brewing, in the form of a kit that will allow anybody to discard the BMW lump and replace it with a more suitable 2JZ power plant from Toyota.

Alpina and BMW have a long history. The former has been tuning Bimmers for over five decades and even provides graphic packages, different alloy designs, etc. Realizing the rising demand of Alpina-tuned cars, BMW started selling them through its own dealerships in the U.S. This time, BMW and Alpina have worked on the former’s big-face flagship luxury sedan to create an explosive monster known as the 2020 Alpina B7. The 2020 B7 was unveiled earlier this month in Palm Springs and is the sixth-generation luxury model from Alpina.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Turbo S GTstreet RS by TechArt

TechArt is one of Germany’s top Porsche tuners, and it plans to reconfirm this status by unveiling at the 89th Geneva Auto Show the latest and most insane version of its well-known GTstreet R model, this time based on the Porsche 911 (991) Turbo S and dubbed the RS. In short, it’s an angry green hornet with 760 horsepower on tap, a 0 to 62 mph time of 2.5 seconds, and a top speed limited to 211 mph because that’s as much as the tires can take.

Porsche is one of the of the most popular sports car manufacturers the world over. As such, there are tons of companies that cater to people who want to make their Porsche just a little bit faster and a little bit more special. Then there are firms, like Ruf or TechArt, that are recognized as independent manufacturers and whose creations stretch far beyond the might of the models used as the foundation for their projects.

TechArt’s GTstreet R kit for the Porsche 991-generation of the Porsche 911 has been around for a few years. We reviewed it a couple of years ago when it was fresh out of TechArt’s laboratory and came to the conclusion that “it has some strong competition from Gemballa, but it still possesses an enviable combination made up of an outstanding aero kit, a dressed-up interior, and powerful engine upgrades.” Prepare, then, for something even better and much rarer as only ten will be made!

Update 3/12/2019:We’ve updated this review with images of the 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo GTstreet RS by Techart taken during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of this page!

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.
