One of the cars that almost every car tuner wants to modify is the Nissan GT-R. They all try to stand out from the crowd and each tuning company redesign and bring a lot of improvements to this Japanese car. Shadow Sport Design made a new aerodynamic kit for the Nissan GT-R that is completed by a set of 20″ forged magnesium wheels. The new aero package includes a front under spoiler, a rear wing and a rear diffuser that incorporates the new tailpipes of the full titanium muffler. With these improvements the GT-R has less air resistance and gained a slight power boost.
We haven’t seen any new tuning kit for the sweet Fiat 500 in these last months and now the German tuners from Merkur released a special upgrade program for this tiny car.

It’s styling package includes new front and rear spoilers, a new set of 16″ or 17″ wheels and the body kit also includes extended wheel arches. The guys from Merkur installed a height adjustable suspension, new spacers and a new stainless exhaust system on the Fiat 500 and now the car has even better handling and gained a bit in power.
Kicherer claims that their newest project is not the new Mercedes SL, it’s not the SL 63 AMG, it’s all Kicherer. The Kicherer Mercedes SL Evo II has many custom made parts and even thought it’s based on the old Mercedes SL R230 it looks different. They made a carbon fiber rear wing and front skirt hand made and equipped the car with lightweight cast wheels and other goodies that will please any customer. The tuning package also includes new side air intakes which will cool this car’s engine easier, a lot of carbon fiber elements to improve the aerodynamics and a rear diffuser which will lessen air resistance. The SL Evo II is equipped with Kicherer Downforce System which is an electronically controlled flap that optimizes down force on the rear axle to improve stability, handling and performance.
We all love modified Mustangs and GeigerCars.de offer an exclusive tuning package for the new Ford Mustang. GT 520 modified by GeigerCars delivers 520 HP, reaches a top speed of 287 km/h, it has a new racing inspired body styling painted with hot orange and an exclusive interior with 10,000 watt sound system. The car tuner reworked this Ford’s engine and after they increased the displacement from 4.6L to 5.2L, installed sport camshafts and reinforced the valvetrain this ride sounds like a rebord sports car legend. The new belt driven supercharger with a big intercooler and the fully stainless steel high performance exhaust system also contribute to the great driving sensation.
Carlsson is the german tuning company specialized in modifying Mercedes Benz models. They wanted to improve the Mercedes SL CK63 RS and with more performance, a complete aerodynamics kit, fine leather in the car’s interior and an exclusive varnish their final result is a masterpiece. The car’s engine has the same cubic capacity but after a couple of improvements it could develop up to 600 HP instead of the serial 525 HP. The maximum torque also rises from 630 Nm at 5,200 rpm to 705 Nm at 5,100 rpm. After this power refinement the car could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds and it’s half a second faster than the AMG model.
