PostHeaderIcon West Coast Customs Kia Stinger Headed to SEMA 2017

As you would expect, this year’s SEMA show is going to be mostly about the new Kia Stinger and who can modify it better. This is the first proposition, coming to you from the good folks at WCC. The West Coast Customs Kia Stinger features a thorough package that showcases what’s possible in terms of styling and performance upgrades.

Finding some time in between making TV shows, WCC crew have fitted the SEMA-bound Stinger with lowered front and rear suspension, a gloss black front grill, a carbon fiber aero kit, 21-inch forged wheels, widebody fender flares, a rear diffuser and squared-off quad exhaust tips. An interior treatment has also been devised, but they have said nothing about engine mods yet. It’ll be interesting if they can breathe more power into the 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 Lambda II engine. It already makes 365 hp, but we reckon it could easily go up to 500.

Based on what we can see in the preview photo, West Coast Customs Kia Stinger comes with a massive aero kit with insanely wide fenders. It appears this is going to be the kind of kits we are going to see often for the Stinger. Given the sports sedan’s price bracket and, well, badge, people are going to treat this car like it’s a Civic or an Impreza. Kia themselves would rather people think of the Stinger as a Korean BMW or something. We would like to see some big time tuners getting their hands on the Stinger and come up with classy treatments worthy of the effort Kia have put into making it.

PostHeaderIcon IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR One Wide Body

Motorsport looks with everyday practicality – sports car makers have been using this blend with great success for years. But wherever the manufacturer has dropped the ball a tuner has come in to pick up the slack.That is the case with IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR One. It looks as though Mercedes has made road-legal AMG GT3.

People like to look like they are brave and skillful without having to work for it or face any inconvenience. That is why they like cars that make them look heroic, even though underneath they are soft and comfortable machines no harder handle than a milk float. So don’t be fooled with the massive aero parts or the wide arches on IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR One. The car is still a sweet grand tourer at heart. It just happens to look like the bastard child of Godzilla and Predator.

Mind you, IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR does have some motorsport skills. It’s not all show. Stating with a AMG GT S, the tuner has replaced major body parts with lightweight carbon fiber pieces. So you have the weight advantage. Then there is the race car-grade aerokit, complementing the  adjustable race suspension, new axle parts and the forged aluminium wheels. The V8 engine is also improved with tweaked turbochargers and a new cooling system. Las but not least, you get track-ready Pirelli Pzero Trofeo R tires.

So if the AMG GT R is still a little too soft for you, it’s good to know there is an alternative in the RXR One.

PostHeaderIcon SEMA 2017: BTR Edition Hyundai Elantra Sport

The gradual reveal of Hyundai’s 2017 SEMA show vehicles continues with this, the BTR Edition Hyundai Elantra Sport. Shown here in all its orange glory, this car proves that even something as affordable, uninspiring, and dull as the Elantra can be made SEMA-worthy… you know, as long as you have a team of tuning experts and thousands of dollars to spare. 

At any rate, The BTR Edition Hyundai Elantra Sport is created by Blood Type Racing. The firm has added to the family car’s benign blend of practicality and economy a heavy dose of naughtiness. Among the main highlights of the treatment they have given this beat there is the methanol injection, intake, exhaust and intercooler technologies, tuned suspension and full aero kit. We are particularity taken by the quasi-Liberty Walk wheel arches which must have been an afterthought. The aero kit, too, seems a bit exaggerated. Although, with what they have done to the engine it could very well be an apt addition.

BTR Edition Hyundai Elantra Sport Specs:

·         Torcon CAI intake and Pierce Motorsports exhaust system

·         Engine management custom ECU Tuning by BTR

·         Devil’s Own water/methanol injection system

·         Re-stitched OEM-style sport interior

·         Diamond-stitched floor mats

·         SoCalGarageWorks carbon-fiber steering wheel

·         SSR GTX01 19 x 9.5 +35 wheels

·         Toyo T1 Sport tires

·         HSD coilover suspension

·         Pierce Motorsports sway bars, strut tower brace and chassis brace

·         Fella Big Brake kit

·         Diode Dynamics custom headlights and LED interior lighting

·         Aerotek custom front, side and rear track-ready lip kit

·         APR GTC-200 GT wing

·         AutoArt body and paint work

·         BASF Glasurit Arancio Borealis paint

·         BTR custom Trunk Track Tool Set and custom full-size spare tire

PostHeaderIcon Abarth 595 Gets a Full Treatment from Vilner

Gone are the days when Vilner was a lowly interior specialist from Bulgaria. Nowadays these rank among the tuning world’s elite thanks to jobs like this. The Vilner Abarth 595 is one of those exquisite tuning works that requires a deep look before you can appreciate it. So let’s dive in and so just that. 

Wanting to make this Abarth 595 “more Italian than the original,” Vilner starts by bringing the tricolore stripe to the interior. You can the iconic tribute to the Italian flag on the ‘Ghiaccio White’ dashboard as well as the passenger side’s floor mat. The reason the stripe is one the passenger’s side is because Vilner didn’t want it to be obscured by the driver. The mats themselves are corrugated Alcantara featuring ‘595’ embroideries.

The treatment for Vilner Abarth 595 continues with corrugated Alcantara and flag stripes for the sea’s middle section, black Alcantara wrapped central console and surroundings of the panoramic roof, plus seatbelts that are now red. Thetuner has also added some exterior goodies, including ‘Abarth’ stripe on the top of the windshield and spoiler on the back wrapped with red/white checkered flag. As a gift to the owner Vilner has included a special bag made from the same exquisite material used in the interior. The highlights of the bag include red ‘seat belt’ shoulder strap, carbon fibre buckles, the Italian flag made from leather and, of course, the Abarth’s scorpion.













“The Italians definitely know how to make a good design,” says Atanas Vilner, the man behind the namesake art studio Vilner – brand that enriches the market for custom automotive creations for more than 20 years. “But when it comes to a mass production, it often comes with its restrictions. And that’s one of the reasons we exist, we’re here to eliminate those restrictions in a unique and tasteful fashion. Fiat 500 Abarth 595’s design is a very good base for a unique project – design which underlines the Italian origin of the vehicle and which also boosts the sporty character of this Abarth.”

The next tricked-out, SEMA-bound Focus we want to show you is a the result of a joint project between three giants. Universal Technical Institute, Tjin Edition and Pennzoil came together to make this Ford Focus RS a one-of-a-kind, unrivaled street racer.

This kit is designed for performance and not showing off. The same is true of the bagged suspension and wheels. You don’t usually see a SEMA car that gives substance a higher priority than style, but Pennzoil’s Ford Focus RS is one of them. For that reason we think this car is worthy of a lot of respect.

The super hot hatch feature a major overhaul of the engine where pretty much every single part is a high-performance one. The motor is backed up by uprated suspension, chassis and brakes. But one cannot help thinking how much faster this Focus would have been, had it not been burdened with so much unnecessary garnish inside the cabin.

PostHeaderIcon Bisimoto HyperEconiq Ioniq Gets Ready for SEMA 2017

Hyundai continues previewing their 2017 SEMA show lineup with intriguing renderings. The next one is this Bisimoto HyperEconiq Ioniq, a very unique take on the Hyundai Ioniq which proves going green does not have to be dull. What Bisimoto has done here is trying to make the Ioniq cooler, enjoyable and more desirable. 

Whether this is something the typical Ioniq buyer would like or be willing to try remains to be seen, just as the it is not clear if tuning enthusiasts would go for something like the Ioniq in the first place. That puts a fairly big question mark above the Bisimoto HyperEconiq Ioniq and the point it is trying to make. But in any case, the achievement, as far as tuning and the whole aftermarket thing goes, is rather brilliant.

Bisimoto HyperEconiq Ioniq features a number of performance-enhancing additions which, remarkably, have no negative effect on the fuel economy of the car. There is NGK spark plugs, modified electronics, and custom exhaust system. Although Bisimoto has not revealed how many horses these mods result in gaining, they are quick to mention the fuel economy which stands at 80 mpg. Being a SEMA car, the HyperEconiq also gets a fancy aero kit, extravagant interior mods, and expensive wheels. You will find a full list of modifications and aftermakret parts below.

Bisimoto HyperEconiq Ioniq Specs:

  • Bisimoto pulse-chamber exhaust system for enhanced volumetric efficiency
  • Racepak OBD-monitoring electronics with interactive OBD cluster
  • Bespoke eco low-friction PurOl Elite Synthetic Oil (0W20)
  • Low-rolling resistance, high-silica tires
  • ARP wheel studs
  • Buddy Club aluminum brake calipers
  • Recaro Pole Position racing seats
  • Carbon Revolution 19″ x 5.0″ CR-9 one-piece carbon-fiber wheels
  • First one-piece OEM application
  • Bisimoto Dream Aero kit (front splitter, TA wing, side splitters, rear wheel covers)
  • Progress Performance coilover suspension
  • Minimized ground clearance
  • Optimized alignment settings
  • Enhanced e-generators
  • NGK spark plugs
  • Optimized inertial supercharging during valvetrain overlap
  • Combined fuel economy well over 80 mpg (83 Bisimoto-tests)

PostHeaderIcon New G-Power BMW X5M Typhoon Gets 750 Horsepower

These days We are seeing more and more category 5 storms hitting various places in the world. While that is obviously a terrible thing, it appears tuner G-Power uses those hurricanes as inspiration for the cars they make. Take this 2017 G-Power BMW X5M Typhoon. The thing could well cause a hurricane if you drive it fast enough through some strong winds!

They call it the ultimate SUV and it is easy to see why. G-Power BMW X5M Typhoon gets the latest and greatest version of the tuner’s power kits for the 4.4 liter bi-turbo BMW V8. It generates a colossal 750 horsepower and 980 Nm of torque, turning this massive SUV into one of the fastest cars capable of putting the shame the most serious sports cars.

The engine treatment resulting in that awesome power include the addition of turbocharger modifications and the application of G-POWER’s Bi-Tronik 2 V3 engine control software, customised to the individual engine. The new turbines are lighter and faster,which means you get reduced inertia for faster spin up and improved throttle response as well as higher boost pressures. Complementing this is a bespoke stainless steel downpipes leading to a titanium sports exhaust system terminating in a rear silencer with four large exit pipes.

G-Power BMW X5M Typhoon comes with an exclusive body kit designed to both look good and to improve the aerodynamics and cooling. It consists of bigger air intakes in the new front bumper, dynamic side skirts, huge fender flares for that sweet wide body effect, and rear bumper with diffuser unit 102 mm diameter tailpipes. Wrapping up the package is a set of ultra-light forged alloy wheels in 23-inch diameter, shod with 315/25ZR23 high performance tires.

PostHeaderIcon Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65 with 888 Horsepower!

German tuner Brabus has a very special “ONE of TEN” badge which they use very rarely and only for their most extreme creations. Now that is what was called for when they finished the new Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65, stepped back and looked at it. This bad boy is quite possibly the most extreme luxury SUV ever created anywhere in the world. 

If you doubt that just look at the figures: 6.3 liter V12 engine (upped from 6.0 liter), 888 horsepower, 1,500 Nm of torque (limited to 1,200), 3.9 second sprint from 0 to 100 km/h, a price tag of €666,000 ($800,000). Nobody needs something like this, but everybody wants it. The extremely lucky ten who will get this thing may find it a bit under whelming to look at though, even though Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65 900 does get some unique styling touches.

The most prominent feature of this monster that set it apart from other Brabus G-Wagens is the mad bonnet which is basically a huge carbon fiber air intake. There is also flares and strakes and scoops everywhere you look, and of course you get a set of humongous monoblock wheels in dark or shiny finish. But still, to an uninterested eye Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65 looks like a G-Class with a fairly ugly bonnet.

The exterior may be a bit confusing, but there will no doubt as to the class and prestige of Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65 once you step inside and check out all the new leather and fancy stitching, the individual back seats with the Maybach style console in the middle featuring a fridge and multiple displays and the drinks cabinet in the boot.

PostHeaderIcon 700-hp Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S Revealed

The latest offering from the house of Brabus is an insanely powerful Mercedes sedan. I know that doesn’t narrow it down much, so here’s another clue: it’s based on an E-Class. The new Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S 700 is going to be one of the hottest tuner cars at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. 

It’s amazing how much power these Germans can extract from just 4 liters. Powering the Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S is the well-known AMG 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine which they have upgraded by 87 horsepower to 700 HP (691 bhp). The torque has also risen from 850 to 950 Nm (701 lb-ft). Combine that with the E63’s standard performance-oriented all-wheel-drive system and you get 0 to 100 km/h in a pulverizing 3.2 seconds. Sadly the top speed is limited… to 300 km/h (186 mph).

Photo Album

As with all super sedans from this firm, Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S 700 gets a host of other upgrades besides the power kit. There is a custom exhaust system with bespoke tailpipes, 21 inch lightweight Monoblock “PLATINUM EDITION” forged wheels with high-performance Yokohoma or Continental tires, Brabus suspension module with 20mm reduction in ride height, and an aero kit featuring carbon front and rear spoilers, diffuser unit with integrated tailpipes, side skirts and strakes, and an awesome grille.

Brabus also offers its customers unlimited customization when it comes to the interior design. The company’s upholstery shop creates exclusive BRABUS fine leather interior appointments from the finest leather and Alcantara. You can choose you own colors and designs, and garnish them with stainless scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo,aluminum pedals, carbon inlays, and…

Powering the Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S is the well-known AMG 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine which they have upgraded by 87 horsepower to 700 HP (691 bhp). The torque has also risen from 850 to 950 Nm (701 lb-ft). Combine that with the E63’s standard performance-oriented all-wheel-drive system and you get 0 to 100 km/h in a pulverizing 3.2 seconds. Sadly the top speed is limited… to 300 km/h (186 mph).

As with all super sedans from this firm, Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S 700 gets a host of other upgrades besides the power kit. There is a custom exhaust system with bespoke tailpipes, 21 inch lightweight Monoblock “PLATINUM EDITION” forged wheels with high-performance Yokohoma or Continental tires, Brabus suspension module with 20mm reduction in ride height, and an aero kit featuring carbon front and rear spoilers, diffuser unit with integrated tailpipes, side skirts and strakes, and an awesome grille.

Brabus also offers its customers unlimited customization when it comes to the interior design. The company’s upholstery shop creates exclusive BRABUS fine leather interior appointments from the finest leather and Alcantara. You can choose you own colors and designs, and garnish them with stainless scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo,aluminum pedals, carbon inlays, and…

Startech, a subsidiary of Brabus with a penchant for SUVs, announced a new upgrade program for the Disco V. The 2017 Startech Land Rover Discovery will be formally introduced at the IAA, but here’s a sneak preview of what the tuner has in mind for the fifth generation of the British utility vehicle. 

Recognizing that the Disco could do with a little bit more flair, the tuner has come up with a number of body components designed to add visual drama to the SUV’s fairly box-shaped appearance. So Startech Land Rover Discovery gets a new front apron with a prominent apron that attaches to the production bumper and impresses with its distinctive design with raised side flaps. This is complemented out back with an equally impressive rear diffuser unit with integrated tailpipes, giving the SUV an uncharacteristically sporty look.

2017 Startech Land Rover Discovery also benefits from little touches such as Union Jack fender garnish which go a long way to improve the aesthetics of the car. A major highlight of the exterior is the set of Monostar M wheels of size 10Jx22 front and back wrapped with Continental low-profile tires of size 295/40 R 22. Granted, they may diminish the Disco’s offroad capability a little bit, but boy do they look good! Final upgrades are made inside the cabin where the big Brit gets exclusive accessories ranges from scuff plates with backlit STARTECH logo and classy floor mats. You can also personalize the cabin and order your own design and colors.

PostHeaderIcon Brabus Mercedes S65 Cabrio ROCKET 900

This year’s IAA Frankfurt Motor Show will see the debut of a new Brabus Rocket. The insane Brabus Mercedes S65 Cabrio Rocket 900 is the most powerful and fastest convertible car in the world while being decadently luxurious.

That’s how Brabus cars are though. They are the ultimate blend of power and speed and luxury. We would have include style in there as well, but not everybody agrees on that one. Sure, Brabus Mercedes S65 Cabrio Rocket 900 looks and mean angry. But calling it pretty would definitely be a stretch.

Anyway, to more important stuff… Brabus Mercedes S65 Cabrio Rocket 900 features a 900 hp/1,500 Nm V12 turbo engine. That Godly power enables the cabrio to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reach a tops peed of over 350 km/h. Were it four-wheel-drive, this Rocket would have been a lot quicker. Other highlights include a complete carbon aero kit with bespoke parts tailored for the S65 and 21 inch wheels. You also get uprated suspension and brakes, and a bespoke interior designed to your taste.

Brabus Rocket models are extremely models produced in limited numbers. Pricing normally starts from half a million Euro and go up based on your specs. We will bring you more on this one at the IAA 2017.

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Porsche Panamera Interior Upgrade by TopCar

Russian tuner TopCar is famous for their unique taste in modifying luxury cars. They are fond of extravagance and flamboyance, and it shows with the new interior kit they have devised for the 2017 Porsche Panamera . This is a one-off project, but it serves as good template for what TopCar is all about. 

The owners of this particular 2017 Porsche Panamera clearly wasn’t happy with the standard and design material. He wanted something with a bit (lot) more flair, and TopCar was only too happy to oblige him. So they went ahead and modified every single surface you can see and touch and covered it with new material that feature elaborate designs and exotic colors. There is two-tone upholstery, artistic stitching and piping all around, new trim pieces and fancy accents.

On the seats this Panamera gets a fantastic upholstery design that not only looks great on its own, it complements the rest of the cabin. The door covers are covered with white leather and accented with dark wood trims. The same luxurious and expensive material is found on the dashboard and on top of the custom steering wheel whose shape has also been modified to look and feel sportier. Even the floor mats are a work of art with leather accents and stitching.

This interior is a pretty subtle one by TopCar’s standard. After all, they have treatments in their portfolio featuring ample amounts of crocodile leather and other ultra-exotic material. Still, we think this is one of the classiest ones they have done yet.

The famous German tuner of BMW and MINI cars have released a full package for the new G30 and G31 2018 BMW 5 Series. That is sedan and wagon (estate) models. The treatment includes pretty much all you can ask – engine, suspension, exhaust, wheels, body kit, interior, the lot. 

The meat of AC Schnitzer BMW 5 Series program for 2018 is the performance upgrades they have devised for the car. The 540i gets a power upgrade from 340 to 400 horsepower, 530d makes 315 instead 265 horsepower, and there are similar boosts in the works for  M550i, BMW 530i and BMW 520d models. The engine kit goes really well with AC Schnitzer sound module with remote control which allows drivers of all models to enjoy a motorsporty soundtrack, although this too is a late-availability option.

As for the aesthetics, the discreet yet luxurious looks of the 2018 BMW 5 Series by AC Schnitzer owes its sexiness to a bunch of add-on parts, namely carbon front spoiler, side skirts and rear diffuser insert. Saloon drivers can enjoy a top class racing look with the AC Schnitzer rear roof spoiler and rear spoiler. A carbon racing rear wing will shortly also be available for the saloon. For the Touring, there is also the rear roof wing which both provides additional downforce and reduces drag. Pair these with one of AC’s cool and sporty wheels and you’ll end up with a 5er that looks like a million dollars tax free!

Urban-Automotive-Range-Rover-Velar

Upgrade packages are starting to surface for the new Range Rover Velar, albeit in rendering form, as the luxury SUV begins to hit the market. This one is proposed by UK firm Urban Automotive who says they have already received fourteen orders for the package, though they won’t say how much it costs.

That implies UA sees their Range Rover Velar kit as a sort of built-to-order bespoke project that they are not going to offer as bits in your local tuning shop. While that makes the whole thing more exclusive, there really isn’t anything that special about the treatment. Sure, they have modified the front and rear aprons and put in some nice new grilles and intakes, but it’s not exactly coachbuilding.

In any case, Urban’s Range Rover Velar features a cool aero kit with front spoiler lip and rear diffuser featuring twin tailpipes and a spoiler to boot. These go really well with the 23 inch staggered wheels and painted brake calipers. The tuner has also removed all Range Rover badges and repalced them with URBAN going with the whole bespoke thing discussed above.

As promised when they revealed their 570S upgrade package, Novitec has now come up with a similar treatment for that car’s GT cousin. Shown here in a resplendent green, the Novitec McLaren 570GT benefits from aesthetics improvements as well as a performance upgrade. 

On the styling front the changes on Novitec McLaren 570GT are, as is often the case with cars from this tuner, are subtle but effective. You get a front spoiler lip, new rocker panels, air intakes, rear diffuser and rear wing, all of which are made from top-notch carbon fiber. Complementing the kit is a set of NOVITEC MC1 20 inch rims.

Performance-wise, Novitec McLaren 570GT gets a full-fat treatment with a sport exhaust system and sophisticated three-stage electronic tuning the net result of which is a jump to 646 horsepower and 692 Nm of torque at 6,250 rpm. What that translates into in terms of sprint time is a 0-100 time of 3.0 seconds dead and a top speed of 334 km/h. The lightweight INCONEL exhaust system not only contributes to the performance, it also enhances the cars acoustics.
